Introducing BADLANDS - Johnny Depp: Homemade Bombs, Bootleg Quaaludes, and Unsolved Disappearances
This month we launched an all new season of BADLANDS, and we’re bringing you a preview here. This is the show where DISGRACELAND host Jake Brennan blends history and true crime to tell the transgressive stories of some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including the mysterious deaths of Marilyn Monroe and Natalie Wood…Tim Allen’s former career as a low-level drug dealer…the curse of the movie Poltergeist…how porn star John Holmes got caught up in the infamous Wonderland murders…and more episodes on Winona Ryder, River Phoenix, Gianni Versace, Robin Williams, Heath Ledger, Sharon Tate, Robert Downey Jr., and so many more.
Search BADLANDS to hear 70+ episodes, including this new episode on Johnny Depp.
Johnny Depp prefers the shadows to the limelight, whether he’s building a bomb with Hunter S. Thompson in the Rocky Mountains, or downing bootleg quaaludes laced with arsenic. After emerging as the leading art flick actor of the 1990s, prodding paparazzi’s desire to paint him as a “novelty boy” often drove him to outbursts that ended in arrests, wrecked hotel rooms, and a miffed Kate Moss and Roger Daltrey. Yet even with camera flashes constantly lighting up his private life, plenty of mysteries still surround Johnny Depp…including the unsolved disappearance of his former Viper Room co-owner – who went missing just days before he was supposed to testify against Johnny in court.
