iHeartPodcasts and Graphic Audio are proud to present “Cornbread Mafia,” a new podcast covering the unbelievable true story of the biggest marijuana bust in U.S. history launching this November. Based on the book by Jim Higdon, find out what life was like for a group of Kentucky-based outlaws, a place with farming, moonshine, and pride in its bloodline. But timing is everything, as you’ll learn through the eyes of the unforgettable Johnny Boone, the man who hoped to grow and harvest one of the greatest marijuana crops in modern times and instead found himself (and all of surrounding Marion County), at the center of America’s War on Drugs. This is what legends are made of.
This series is hosted by Megan Nadolski of Goat Rodeo podcasts, and sponsored by Cornbread Hemp, which was co-founded by “Cornbread Mafia” author Jim Higdon.
Episode one debuts November 1. Trailer available today, here.
“Cornbread Mafia” is distributed by iHeartPodcasts and will be available on the iHeartRadio app and everywhere podcasts are heard.
As hot a topic as it’s ever been, the Cornbread Mafia focuses on a little-known marijuana moment in American history, taking audiences on a journey to expose how a turning point in federal drug policy shaped a local community—and had consequences lasting generations.
