"The Whitney Houston story is as tragic as they come," said Jake Brennan. "She succumbed to drugs and alcohol yes, but ultimately she died of a broken heart. It was an end that was totally avoidable had she been able to be the person she truly wanted to be and to love the person she truly wanted to love."
During the month of December, Disgraceland will turn it's focus to the year of 1969, with episodes on The Rolling Stones at Altamont, the Manson murders and more.
Last month, Brennan released his debut book, which Forbes called the book "a real page turner." The Arts Fuse called it, "...fascinating, funny, and often frightening." Publisher's Weekly said the book, "...is sure to fascinate music fans and true crime lovers."
Disgraceland now averages more than 3 million downloads per month and hit #4 on the overall iTunes Top Podcasts chart following the launch of season 3. Billboard said, "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."
