A free series of official Bob Dylan podcasts presented by Patti Smith has been made available by Sony.

Ten short casts have already been posted telling the astonishing story of
Dylan’s career chronologically and it is anticipated that the series will eventually run to about 20 episodes, forming a two hour documentary. The
tenth episode, which was posted this week, took the story up to the late
’70s and the beginning of the ‘born again’ period.

With Smith acting as the presenter and linkwoman, each includes Dylan recordings and historic interview snippets with the man himself plus contributions from musicians such as Roger McGuinn and Garth Hudson and commentators including Greil Marcus.

All are legally downloadable as MP3 files from:
