A New True Crime Podcast “Disorganized Crime” Is Bringing Untold Stories — Through the Lens of One Family — to iHeartRadio!
True crime podcasts and their epic retelling of sometimes tragic true life events are always a thrill to listen to — but what if there was a true crime podcast that was so real that the names in the show had to be changed? Well, that’s the case for this new podcast, “Disorganized Crime” from iHeartRadio. The show’s host goes by the name Rainbow Valentine, a pseudonym used to protect her identity. After discovering that her artist mom and ‘businessman’ dad were deeply involved in the illegal drug trade of the 1970s and 80s, she sets out to uncover her story as a smuggler’s daughter.
Through intimate interviews with her father, Rainbow Valentine discovers the truth about her childhood that causes her to reassess everything and how her parents successfully helped to run a massive pot distribution operation — without her ever knowing about it. Over the course of the podcast, and through these interviews, Rainbow Valentine dives into a unique personal window that reveals the infamous counter-culture of Marin County, California in the 1970s and 80s. From Ken Kasey’s acid tests and the birth of the Grateful Dead to how the drug culture eventually hardened and became more dangerous in response to the war on drugs, this podcast gets into the history of drugs in the late 20th century in the framework of Valentine’s individual investigation.
