Double Elvis’ “DISGRACELAND” is an atypical music podcast, exploring the lives, times, and true crimes of musical icons and their followings. Hear about musicians who murdered and superstars’ questionable behavior, sometimes gracing headlines, while other stories stayed buried only to be heard later on.
New episodes run 45 minutes a pop. The series has released 11 seasons since 2017 and can be streamed in any order you’d like since they’re artist-specific. The new season just started this February and we’re looking forward to hearing the twelve episodes. Check out deep-dives into 50 Cent, AC/DC, Mac Miller, Otis Redding, MC5, Skip James, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Willie Nelson, and Lou Reed.
Previous seasons covered Britney Spears, Ringo Starr, Charles Manson, the Sex Pistols, Chris Brown, Jennifer Hudson, Robert Johnson, and Pink Floyd. Other stars and bands include David Bowie, the Beach Boys, Ozzy Osbourne, The Beatles, Whitney Houston, A$AP Rocky, Led Zeppelin, and The Rolling Stones – just to name a few.
There are dives into Miles Davis blasting racism, The Temptations’ paranoia, and Tom Petty’s heroin habit. Federal drug agents and heroin hounds were after Billie Holiday for her drug use. How did George Harrison dodge his own murder? We’ll have to tune in to hear more about these true stories.
“DISGRACELAND” is written, produced, and hosted by Jake Brennan, and the series won several awards. He also wrote the book, DISGRACELAND: Musicians Getting Away With Murder And Behaving Very Badly. “BADLANDS” released two seasons based on “DISGRACELAND.” “HOLLYWOODLAND” was all about celebrities, and “SPORTSLAND” delved into athletes who got mixed up in true crime. Brennan also hosted the series “Dead and Gone” about Grateful Dead concert fans going missing or getting killed over the years.
