    Introducing Dead and Gone

    Introducing Dead and Gone. A podcast about the Grateful Dead and their missing and murdered fans. One of the most iconic bands in American history, “The Dead” as they’re affectionately called by their fans—self proclaimed "Dead Heads”—have been dogged by a darkness that has followed the band since its inception and despite the Grateful Dead’s ethos of peace and love and communal music, this darkness has led to the murder and the disappearance of some of the band’s most dedicated fans. Hosted by popular podcasters Payne Lindsey of Up and Vanished and Jake Brennan of Disgraceland, this podcast combines the distinct storytelling styles of both Payne's investigative style and Jake’s single-voice narrative style. From Tenderfoot TV and Double Elvis, this is Dead and Gone, a long, strange, deadly trip.

5 Stars all the way

It surprises me there are 1 star reviews. I remember seeing this story on the news and being so frightened because we didn’t live too far from where the shootings were happening.

This podcast provides insight into the why behind the what. I 100% believe that John Allen Muhammad committed this crime spree as a way to cover up his crime when he would eventually kill his ex-wife. Fortunately he was caught before then. As a survivor of DV survivor, this makes so much sense to me.

Sniper Podcast

Amazing Podcast!!!! This series kept me on my toes the entire time and left me waiting for the next episode. I am glad I was able to binge listen. Atlanta and the Zodiac Killer were really good but they happened before my lifetime. I actually remember watching news coverage on the DC Sniper. It was nice to learn more details about the case that are not as publicly known. I can’t wait for the next series in Monster.

Good but the ads are awful and jarring

This series in really fascinating but the ads and the ad breaks are really jarring. There is a sound cue for the ad break but every episode starts with two ads. And the ads are essentially the same style of ads you’d hear on the radio; loud, obnoxious, disingenuous. The intro also gets very repetitive and annoying.
The series itself is very very good and very well done but the ads really take you out of the head space and there are 2 or 3 ad breaks per episode
