Disgraceland - A True Crime Rock 'n' Roll Podcast

I've been waiting months for Disgraceland to premier. It's billed as the first ever rock n roll true crime podcast. That might be catered directly to me.

Hosted by Boston musician Jake Brennan, Disgraceland finally premiered on February 13 with its first episode, "Jerry Lee Lewis: The Killer and Getting Away with Murder." Brennan uses a narrative style, more on the line of Lore than My Favorite Murder. He really gets into the entire history of Lewis's known violence and erratic behavior, and how he had two wives die under mysterious circumstances in a very short period of time. It's an unbelievably brutal look at a man who has created some of the greatest music on the planet, and that he's probably one of the biggest monsters walking it today.

Future episodes will include tales of The Rolling Stones, Beck, and 2pac. You can find it on iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts. To keep up to date with Disgraceland, check out their website.
