This week on DragonKing Dark, host Karl Stern takes on another society related topic - When Idols Fall. We have seen much of this lately. Michael Jackson, Bill Cosby, politicians, church leaders, and other entertainers are frequently in the news as their past sins and crimes have come to light. Then out come the torches of the media both mainstream and social and their works are art are pulled from the air, dismissed, and forgotten. But should it? Can we separate the artist from the art? Should we? This thought provoking question is the topic on this edition of DragonKing Dark. Patreons get an ad free extended version of the show.
