Drinks With Johnny

Drinks With Johnny

After touring the world with Avenged Sevenfold for 20 years, Johnny Christ sits down to have conversations with some old friends, some new friends, and people of all different walks of life to hear the stories that shaped their lives and careers. The truth is, we never really know where these conversations are going to go. Sometimes we play a game for some less than thrilling penalties, get lost in the middle of LA, and even just kick back to celebrate a holiday or two. Sometimes we drink, other times we don’t drink at all. From cocktails to health shakes, the drink is just a nice icebreaker to loosen up our guests for the wild ride they’re about to embark upon. Whatever it is you're looking for, we're sure to have it on the menu here at Drinks With Johnny. So stay tuned, stay thirsty, and stay FILTHY AF!

      If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

      Bone Valley

      Bone Valley is a 9-episode true crime podcast. New episodes are available for free every Wednesday. In 1987, 18-year-old Michelle Schofield was found dead in a phosphate pit in Florida. Two years later, her husband Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Fifteen years later, previously unidentified fingerprints matched Jeremy Scott--a violent teenager who lived nearby. Jeremy has since confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. In this groundbreaking podcast, Bone Valley host Gilbert King uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for a string of murders. King is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Devil in the Grove, which led to the exonerations of four innocent men. Bone Valley is a production of Lava for Good Podcasts in association with Signal Co. No1.
