Disgraceland’s Jake Brennan launches media company, will produce music shows for iHeartRadio network

Many experienced podcast creators are now launching their own studios and the latest is Jake Brennan, creator and host of Disgraceland. Brennan and partner Brady Sadler have teamed to launch Double Elvis Productions. The company’s first slate is a collection of four music podcasts in partnership with iHeartMedia. The shows will be a part of the iHeartRadio Original Podcasts network.

“There is no shortage of great stories out there but not all of them fit into the world of Disgraceland,” Brennan said. “Double Elvis is a way for me to help bring to life other stories that I want to hear, from an emerging group of compelling and diverse storytellers that challenge and inspire me to continue to try and push the limits of the podcast medium. Working with iHeartRadio on this new slate gives these creators a massive platform to help them find their audience.”

The first podcast is Dear Young Rocker. It tells a coming-of-age story and offers advice for fellow creatives from the perspective of host and bassist Chelsea Ursin. The podcast is due to debut in 2020.
