DISGRACELAND

A music and true crime podcast about musicians getting away with murder and behaving very badly. Jerry Lee Lewis, Ozzy Osbourne, Cardi B.

Award-winning podcaster and author Jake Brennan narrates and produces this one-of-a-kind podcast. Disgraceland is not journalism. It is entertainment. Entertainment inspired by true crimes and events. However, certain scenes, characters and names are sometimes fictionalized for dramatic purposes as they are in most other dramatic storytelling mediums. Disgraceland releases episodes weekly.
