    Episode 23 - Bass Reeves

    Episode 23 - Bass Reeves

    In the second half of the 19th century, in a lawless stretch of land in present-day Oklahoma known as Indian Territory, the name “Bass Reeves” struck terror into the heart of any criminal who was on the run. A deputy U.S. marshal with a quick trigger and a reputation for both doggedness and creativity in chasing down outlaws, Reeves was perhaps the greatest lawman of the Wild West. But Reeves — unlike most lawmen of his day — was Black.

    Episode 22 - The Mysterious Disappearance Of Holly Bobo

    Episode 22 - The Mysterious Disappearance Of Holly Bobo

    On April 13, 2011, Holly Bobo disappeared into the woods behind her family's home in Tennessee, leaving investigators with few clues or leads.


    Bobo’s disappearance rattled her small community of Darden, Tennessee. But despite having an eyewitness who’d seen her being abducted, authorities struggled to develop any leads. For years, the Bobo family had nothing but a handful of disturbing clues, as well as wrenching questions about the fate of their daughter. 


    By the time a pair of ginseng hunters finally found Holly’s bones in the woods nearby, several men had been arrested for kidnapping, raping, and killing her.

    Episode 21 - Tombstone

    On October 26, 1881, a group of nine outlaws and lawmen gathered in a narrow alleyway in Tombstone, Arizona. Their showdown was the result of long-simmering tensions that had been building between these two groups — tensions about good and evil, right and wrong, and the future of the American Frontier.

    Episode 20 - The Rise and Fall of Nikola Tesla

    On January 7, 1943, Nikola Tesla passed away at the age of 86 from coronary thrombosis. He died alone, and in debt, at a cheap hotel in New York City. His body was only found when a hotel maid ignored the “do not disturb” sign on his door and decided to enter his room after two days of no activity from within.


    It was an inglorious end to a remarkable life. Listen to learn more about the rise and fall of Nikola Tesla, the groundbreaking inventor determined to unlock the full potential of electricity.

    Episode 19 - Maud Wagner

    Episode 19 - Maud Wagner

    At the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904, an aerialist named Maud Wagner struck a deal with a tattoo artist. She would go on a date with him — if he taught her how to tattoo. Thus began the two most important love affairs of Wagner’s life: the tattoo artist and tattoos themselves.


    Proudly adorned with hundreds of tattoos, renowned circus performer Maud Wagner was unlike most women in early 1900s America. In an era when women couldn't vote and had little say in their own fate, Wagner proudly took control of her body by decorating it with hundreds of tattoos, ranging from animals to military iconography to her own name displayed on her arm. At the height of her fame in the years before World War I, Wagner would earn the equivalent of about $2,000 per exhibition just to show off these tattoos to awestruck crowds — and then give tattoos to those who wanted them. 


    This is the wild, heroic tale of Maud Wagner, the first known female tattoo artist in American history.
