Meet John Bloom
A close personal friend of Joe Bob Briggs
John Bloom is a veteran investigative journalist, three-time finalist for the National Magazine Award, long-term columnist for the New York Times Syndicate, has written for many other publications, and is the author of nine books. One of those, Evidence of Love, was made into an Emmy-award winning film.
He’s been a television personality, a film critic, a satirist, and the star of a one-man stage show. His latest book, Eccentric Orbits, was named one of the Wall Street Journal’s ten best books of 2016 and has been called “fascinating,” “a remarkable piece of story-telling,” “a monumental piece of nonfiction,” and both a “novelistic thriller” and a “cautionary tale.”
