A ten-part series focuses on the real Patch Adams

PRESS RELEASE ·

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).

Featuring music by Hope for a Golden Summer, Noodle McDoodle, Gabby La La, Will Collins, The Ukulady, Gregg Moore, Mariano Morales Lopez & produced by an all-volunteer team passionate about sharing stories that spread joy & peace. Proudly part of Pantheon Podcasts.
