He dropped by Burn It Down! to discuss crime novels, the prison-industrial complex, the prosperity gospel, Harry Crews, the state of book publishing, and more.

In a bonus installment of his 8 Ball Radio show Most Absurd Medicine Show (MAMS) East, Gil A.D. will embark on the directionless path of NO HOLDS BARRED sonic experimentalism he has traveled down many times before only to get more lost, confused, perhaps hungry, and, only then (or maybe not), find eternal bliss and gratitude for existence in the form of radio.

Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
