Introducing Dead and Gone
Introducing Dead and Gone. A podcast about the Grateful Dead and their missing and murdered fans. One of the most iconic bands in American history, “The Dead” as they’re affectionately called by their fans—self proclaimed "Dead Heads”—have been dogged by a darkness that has followed the band since its inception and despite the Grateful Dead’s ethos of peace and love and communal music, this darkness has led to the murder and the disappearance of some of the band’s most dedicated fans. Hosted by popular podcasters Payne Lindsey of Up and Vanished and Jake Brennan of Disgraceland, this podcast combines the distinct storytelling styles of both Payne's investigative style and Jake’s single-voice narrative style. From Tenderfoot TV and Double Elvis, this is Dead and Gone, a long, strange, deadly trip.
