The New York City quartet Marbles are perhaps best remembered for having released the third single on the seminal Ork Records (following Television and Richard Hell). Although their recorded output was limited to two singles, Marbles were regular headliners at CBGBs alongside the Ramones, Blondie, and the Talking Heads.
In this interview, guitarist and vocalist Howard Bowler not only discusses the band's history but also shares the news of a television series he is creating about the legendary New York venue where Marbles got their start.
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.
