This is the coolest thing I've ever heard, and I've heard it all!

Jeff Bezos

If I could, I would trade all of my wealth and assets for the ability to do nothing but listen for this podcast.

About the show

Murder, infidelity, suicide, arson, addiction, religious cults, drug trafficking; this podcast explores the alleged true crime antics and criminal connections of musicians we love like Jerry Lee Lewis, the Rolling Stones, XXXTentacion, Cardi B, the Grateful Dead, Tupac, Biggie, Amy Winehouse, Bob Marley and more. 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. Sources for each episode are available at disgracelandpod.com.

A critical hit!

The episode about misdirected emails had me in stitches! Another Mary Smith accidentally added to a sewing group list serv and I decided to pick up quilting after receiving their messages for over a year.

Fantastic

I've had so many people sing songs from Pocahontas to me because my name is John Smith. Now I know I'm not alone!

It's finally here

I'm definitely the only person with my name in the world, and I've always longed for an easier to say (and spell) name, to blend in rather than stick out. Name Already Taken has given me so much perspective on how to maintain a sense of individuality when your name isn't unique.
