This podcast looks to shed light on one of music history’s strangest mysteries: legendary songwriter Bob Dylan’s infamous 1966 motorcycle crash in upstate New York. The event left Dylan changed, looking different and sounding different than before. So what exactly happened to him? That’s what a new season of the Elvis Productions and iHeartRadio hit podcast “Blood on the Tracks” will answer. Hosted by award-winning podcaster Jake Brennan (creator of “DISGRACELAND” and “27 Club”), Season 3 of “Blood on the Tracks” explores what really happened to Dylan in the 10 days he spent recovering from the accident in the house of a local doctor. Was he actually recovering from his injuries? Detoxing from drug use? Or, as Dylan himself suggested decades later, had he actually undergone some kind of transfiguration? Part true crime, part historical fiction, part spoken word lo-fi beat noir, “Blood on the Tracks” searches for answers while sounding nothing like podcasts you’ve heard before. You can listen to the debut episode of Season 3 of “Blood on the Tracks,” streaming now on iHeartRadio!
