So far in season 3, host Jake Brennan has dissected Kurt Cobain & Courtney Love, Snoop Dogg, Johnny Cash, The Grateful Dead and more.

Last week, host Jake Brennan announced his debut book, Disgraceland: Musicians Getting Away with Murder and Behaving Very Badly. The book, an off-kilter, hysterical, at times macabre collection of stories from the highly entertaining underbelly of music history, will be released via Grand Central Publishing and is now available for pre-order.
Billboard proclaimed, “his shows feature just his voice, strong audio design and enough murder, mayhem and maniacal behavior to keep you on the edge of your seat,” while Complex said, “Disgraceland is the kind of podcast that will suck you in and make you binge half a dozen episodes before you realize what happened.”
Following a sold out show in Boston and a performance in Denver, CO, Jake Brennan will perform at Comedy Central’s Clusterfest in San Francisco which takes place on June 21-23. Tickets can be found on the Disgraceland website.
