From his college days booking artists like the Doors to his later career working with the Smiths and Pretenders at Sire Records, every chapter of Howie Klein's life is fascinating to the avid music fan. One of Howie's greatest legacies is the founding of 415 Records in 1978, one of San Francisco's seminal independent record labels. From beloved underground acts such as the Units and the Nuns to bands who would find mainstream success, such as Romeo Void, the roster of 415 artists is breathtaking in its diversity and talent.
Recently, Liberation Hall has begun re-releasing some of 415's catalogue, including the label-spanning Disturbing The Peace compilation in late 2020. For more information on Liberation Hall and the work that they're doing, visit them here:

If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
