Why? Because real rock stars are more like feral, narcissistic animals than functioning members of society and that is precisely what makes them so damn entertaining. If you love true crime and you love music, you will love this award winning podcast. Disgraceland is a scripted, single voice narrative storytelling podcast that melds music, true crime, history and transgressive fiction. Disgraceland is not a journalistic podcast. It is an entertainment podcast inspired by true events. Certain dialogue and scenes are sometimes fictionalized for dramatic purposes as they are in most scripted entertainment mediums based on true events.

Cool podcast

I was listening to the 27 club Jim Morrison show and heard him talk about this show. Glad he did because this a great! Nice to know I’ve got a few weeks of shows to catch up on. The Jerry Lewis episode was pretty bad a**

Smooth as butter and mischief

Jake has the smoothest voice of any podcasters I have ever heard. This podcast was my introduction to podcasts a few years ago. It’s a subject I thoroughly enjoy and to find a man with a voice as smooth as butter that can keep me entertained and enthralled? I’m sold for life. I also love the book! Favorite, favorite, favorite!!!
