Amazing how many "music gods" were violent POS. Well told and researched, hosted by a mellow-voiced smooth talker and complemented with equal parts dreamy and eerie music. Just don't binge too much, it can get dark.

Very interesting. Thoroughly researched and cleverly presented. Sometimes I wonder where hard facts end and educated conjecture begins but, it's all in fun so I just enjoy.

Miles Davis Pt. 2: Mountains of Pills, Bitches Brew, and the Reinvention of the Original Motherf#%*er
00:33:47

When it came to music, Miles Davis wasn’t about no safe, tired yesterday bullsh*t. After kicking his heroin addiction, he traded bespoke suits for fringe jackets and spearheaded an experimental blur of jazz and rock, eclipsing his contemporaries with a complete reinvention of himself. But the second act of Miles’ life came fraught with failures and new fixes, including a wrecked Lambo, two broken legs, and a mountain of coke and pills so massive that Miles almost never made it down the other side.

This episode contains themes that may be disturbing to some listeners and includes descriptions of domestic violence.

Introducing BADLANDS Season 4: HOLLYWOODLAND
00:04:50

Introducing the true crime podcast Badlands— a show that dives deep into the real stories of the famous at their most infamous.

Each season, host Jake Brennan, explores the real life crimes and scandalous careers of the world’s most popular cultural figures. In an all new season, he tells the stories of A-listers whose misdeeds and career lows are as unbelievable as some of their films’ plot twists—like the story of Sharon Tate, who was caught up in a strange scene long before members of the Manson family came along. Or the story of how Judy Garland’s lifelong addiction to pills sent her over the rainbow much too soon. And the story about how Winona Ryder was connected to a child kidnapping case in her hometown. These and many more.

For all that and more, listen to Badlands. Get new episodes every Wednesday wherever you get your podcasts, or binge all of season four right now only on Amazon Music.

Miles Davis Pt. 1: Blasting Bebop, Blasting Racism, and a Devastating Heroin Habit
00:35:14

Miles Davis is jazz’s first and only rock star, with the rap sheet to prove it. He did enough cocaine to run down the entirety of 52nd street, and pimped out women when performing wasn’t paying the bills. At one point, his heroin habit was so public that clubs who had once welcomed his brilliant bebop instead froze him out completely. When he wasn’t vying to keep his rightful spot in jazz’s upper echelon, he was doing time at Rikers Island or dodging racist cops on the prowl for any junkie they could find. Miles Davis invented cool, but nearly destroyed himself in the process.

This episode contains themes that may be disturbing to some listeners and includes descriptions of domestic violence.

Juice WRLD: Percocets, Lucid Dreams and a Whole Lotta Lean
00:39:15

The loss of emo-rap trailblazer Juice WRLD is one of the most sudden, tragic, and graphic celebrity deaths in recent memory. His adolescence experimenting with bold beats, prescription pills, and lean set him up to become Gen Z’s new spokesperson. His music helped hit the reset button on popular music, transforming a once-bubbly genre into an all-consuming wormhole of depression, tension, and heartache. But his music earned more than just a global audience — it also drew the attention of the FBI, a force that was very present during Juice WRLD’s final days.

Paul McCartney: Paul Is Dead, Smuggling Drugs, and Composing the World’s Most Beloved Songs (Best of Disgraceland Season 8)
00:43:18

Get back to Season 8 of Disgraceland with one of our favorite episodes from that season featuring one of the most beloved musicians of all time.

Despite his reputation as “the safe Beatle,” Paul McCartney was a badass. He took wild artistic risks, rubbed elbows with truly dangerous characters and because of his crimes, did hard time in one of the world’s most notorious prisons. His public spats with Beatles bandmate John Lennon are the stuff of legend, as is the “Paul is dead” conspiracy at the end of their time together as a band, but the truth may be even stranger.

Jerry Lee Lewis: The Killer and Getting Away with Murder (Best of Disgraceland Season 1)
00:27:59

This is where it all started: the very first episode of Disgraceland. Check out this killer debut episode and then dive into the archive where you'll find many more insane stories of music, murder, and mayhem.

The night before Jerry Lee Lewis’ fifth wife died, she made a phone call to her mother. She told her that she was thinking of leaving the rock ‘n’ roll pioneer, but that he wouldn’t let her. She also made a second call—this one to the sister of her high school sweetheart, making plans for the sister to come take her away from Jerry Lee later that month. Then … in mid-sentence the phone went dead. The next day, Mrs. Jerry Lee Lewis was found dead. Placed nearly on top of a perfectly made bed in the newlywed couple’s guest room. Despite the bruises on her body, the blood under her fingernails, the scratches on her husband’s hands, and the mountain of other physical and anecdotal evidence, the death was ruled an accident. Did Jerry Lee Lewis kill his wife and get away with murder?
