Episode 47: The Wrong Track

Updated: Jan 4, 2021

Kurt Cobain. A household name synonymous with grunge, the 90’s and unfortunately, suicide. Although it’s yet to be proven otherwise, for 26 years rumors have persisted that someone besides Kurt took his life.

So did Kurt hate his life and want to die or did something more nefarious take place?
