Wisecracks & Roadside Flats is a news podcast featuring American stories and folktales from musician, author and storyteller Teague Alexy. The debut episode, “Million Dollar Magic Take,” is Teague’s experience with the classic Bob Dylan and the Band album The Basement Tapes. Teague first hears the album on a solo road trip and years later finds himself as part of a tribute show to the album in Bob Dylan’s hometown of Duluth.
