Bear and a Banjo

Bear and a Banjo is a new musical podcast that tells the incredibly tall tale of a band that time forgot.

All their adventures are meticulously archived and presented by Dr. Q, played by Dennis Quaid. Featuring an original soundtrack produced by Oscar-winner T-Bone Burnett (O’ Brother Where Art Thou, True Detective) , Bear and a Banjo is an immersive musical journey through old weird America during the big bang of recorded sound....

Murder, infidelity, suicide, arson, overdose, religious cults, drug trafficking; this podcast explores the alleged true crime antics and criminal connections of musicians we love like Jerry Lee Lewis, The Rolling Stones, Tay K-47, Tupac Shakur, Mayhem, Amy Winehouse and many more. Why? Because real rock stars are more like feral, narcissistic animals than functioning members of society and that is precisely what makes them so damn entertaining. If you love true crime and you love music then get ready to love this podcast.
