How did Setlusting Bruce's Jesse Jackson React to the Springsteen-centric Blinded By the Lights (2019)?

Jesse Jackson of the Setlisting Bruce Podcast joins the podcast to talk to Ryan about the soundtrack to the 2019 Gurinder Chadha film, Blinded by the Lights, a film that is centered around a character's discovery of the music of Bruce Springsteen. Naturally, Jesse is the perfect guest to talk about The Boss, who contributes 12 songs to the soundtrack. Jesse is also familiar with the book that the film is based on, Sarfraz Manzoor's Greetings from Bury Park, so Jesse explains the differences between the film and book, as well as some factual errors regarding the film and Bruce's discography.
