This week, we catch up with Chris Todt who grew up in the Philadelphia area and first got turned on to the Dead by the In the Dark album. But it would not be until college that Chris really got on the bus, seeing his first show, with that incredible Unbroken Chain breakout, on March 19, 1995. In the episode, we talk about all this and more, including Jerry calling for shows on Chris’s stereo in the week after his passing.
