In this episode: Writer David Kinney spent several years following obsessive fans of Bob Dylan for his new book, The Dylanologists. Kinney tells Soundcheck about these uber-fans’ quests -- moving, sad, entertaining -- to decipher the Sphinx of American songwriting.

Then: Diego Garcia led the indie-rock band Elefant for many years before striking out on his own. Hear the Argentine-American singer-songwrite perform his languid, dreamy indie pop songs from Paradise and more in the Soundcheck studio.

Guests:

Diego Garcia and David Kinney
