New Seasons of Disgraceland Coming



Jake Brennan, host and producer of the rock and roll true crime podcast Disgraceland, and iHeartMedia, the number 1 commercial podcast publisher globally, with over 20,000 podcasts on its platform, announced at the Winter Podcast Upfront a new partnership to bring listeners two additional seasons of Disgraceland to the iHeartPodcast Network.

Disgraceland is a true-crime podcast about musicians getting away with murder and behaving very badly. It is hosted and produced by Jake Brennan. It has thirty minute episodes that trace the most insane criminal stories surrounding our most interesting and infamous pop stars.

Season 3 will feature 10 episodes and will debut everywhere on March 14, 2019, with part one of a two-part episode on Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love. Part two will follow on March 19, 2019.

Subsequent new episodes will be released bi-weekly on Tuesdays beginning March 26, 2019, with an episode on Snoop Dogg. In addition, Disgraceland will debut the Season 3 premier first on iHeartMedia broadcast radio stations across the U.S. on March 13, 2019, before its available digitally on March 14, 2019.

“I can’t wait for Disgraceland listeners to hear Season 3,” said Host and Creator Jake Brennan. “They can expect more of the same highly entertaining stories from the seedy underbelly of rock and roll past and present, but with a whole new cast of characters: Kurt and Courtney, Ike and Tina, Johnny Cash and Amy Winehouse to name a few. More death, self-destruction, scandal, amazing music and pre-set mellotron loops.”

The partnership will also include a new slate of iHeartRadio Original podcasts led by Brennan set to be released later this year.

Two of the originals include Rocka Rolla, a serialized version of Disgraceland with a 10-episode arc on the madness and genius of Phil Spector, and The 27 Club, a new anthology series that will explore the lives of rock stars who died mysteriously at the age of 27. The new slate of shows will be hosted by Brennan and co-produced by iHeart Radio in the style of Disgraceland.
