A ten-part series focuses on the real Patch Adams


Most people around the world have heard of the movie from 1998, Patch Adams, starring Robin Williams. However, most people don’t know that PATCH ADAMS is a real person who transformed from suicidal misfit into global activist nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.

Who is the real Patch Adams? How did a suicidal teenager become a revolutionary humanitarian peaceworker & global changemaker of joy, fun & love?

In this 10-part narrative documentary podcast series, Patch’s son, Lars Adams & producer, Rainbow Valentine, dive deep with the real Patch Adams, doctor, clown, activist, philosopher, visionary, counter-culture icon & inspirational human, weaving together stories from Patch, his family, friends and colleagues, to find out how a bullied, suicidal misfit turned fearless, hippie-doctor-revolutionary became a 2021 Nobel Peace Prize Nominee.

Humans have always battled the dark side of anger, melancholy & sorrow. In an ever-challenging world of 24/7 media-messages of violence, sorrow & hate, the voice of Patch Adams is more vital than ever, bringing an unwavering ideology of hope, joy, humor & love to places like Afghanistan, the Gaza Strip, Chechnya, etc… displacing despair, sorrow & suffering with universal humor & humanity.

The Best Day of My Life: Patch Adams’ Journey to the Nobel Peace Prize features intimate father/son conversations about a total weirdo/visionary who has spent over 50 years unwaveringly subverting greed, loneliness & pain with whoopie cushions, rubber chickens, & rainbow costumes.

Produced by Rainbow Valentine Studios, written & narrated by Rainbow Valentine of the podcast Disorganized Crime: Smuggler’s Daughter (over 3 million downloads).
