Badlands is a true crime podcast that dives deep into the real stories of the famous– at their most infamous. In an all new special season, host Jake Brennan tells the stories of legendary athletes whose misdeeds off the field are as unbelievable as some of their record-breaking plays.
As American football gets into full swing, Badlands explores the intersection of gridiron giants and true crime, with stories about Michael Vick, Ray Lewis, Joe Namath, Robert Rozier, and Lawrence Taylor. And just in time for the World Cup, we’re tackling the sins and scandals of the soccer world, with episodes on Diego Maradona, Andrés Escobar, Paul Gascoigne, Bruno Fernandes de Souza, and of course, the infamous Hillsborough Disaster of 1989.
