Welcome to Flashlight & A Biscuit!
Hey. I’m Jay Busbee, a senior writer over at Yahoo Sports. I’ve been fortunate enough to cover sports all over the world, but I always find my way back to the American South. It’s a fascinating, infuriating, beautiful, aggravating region, one full of magnificent art, wrenching history and so, so many stories.
Check out some our most popular editions right here:
The true story of the Diablo Sandwich, a “Smokey & The Bandit” legend
One-star Waffle House reviews that will make you want to go to Waffle House
The time I ate nuclear-level hot wings and burnt my very soul
The transcendent joy of the perfect college bar
The secrets of the South’s most haunted lake
I’ll share a story or two with you each week, along with some recommendations on books/music/food, and whatever else might be on my laptop’s open tabs at the time. It’s all free, and you can’t beat free.
You can see the latest issue right here. Sign up so you don’t miss any more.
Thanks for stopping by. Peace!
