Professor and psychobiographer William Todd Schultz talks about his new book TORMENT SAINT: THE LIFE AND DEATH OF ELLIOTT SMITH, actor Greg Sestero recounts the hell he survived while playing Mark in THE ROOM, and Dashboard Confessional frontman Chris Carrabba performs with his new band, Twin Forks.

William Todd Schultz is a college professor and a writer, who specializes in psychological profiles of artists, which have resulted in three books: Tiny Terror: Why Truman Capote Almost Wrote Answered Prayers, An Emergency in Slow Motion: The Inner Life of Diane Arbus and most recently Torment Saint: The Life of Elliott Smith.

Greg Sestero is a writer and actor perhaps best known as Mark from The Room, which has been described as "The Citizen Kane of bad movies." He's a good sport about the film's particularities though, and has written The Disaster Artist, a book based on his experiences on the film.

The new project from the lead singer of Dashboard Confessional, Chris Carrabba. Their debut EP is now available.
