I would call it a weakness in me, but every time I hear the story of the shepherd who leaves the 99 sheep to search after the lost sheep, I cannot help but think of the poor economics at work.

The wolf shall be a guest of the lamb. The leopard shall lie down with the kid. The calf and the young lion shall browse together. The cow and the bear shall be neighbors.

If you have been listening to the readings for the past couple of weeks, you might have noticed that they are kind of heavy. They describe battles, wars, standing up for faith, and hardships.

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.
