Elijah Wald and Preston Lauterbach compare and contrast B.B. King and Robert Johnson and discuss the surprising link between the two very different artists in light of a new biography of King. They revisit the great Honeyboy Edwards and his enthralling memoir The World Don't Owe Me Nothing and debate the history of Robert Johnson's murder. Later, they interview Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton, touching on a wide variety of subjects from L.A. juke joints to blackface minstrelsy, proving how painfully difficult the latter subject is to talk about.
