True stories from the wild and woolly west. Also really lame jokes! Each episode I discuss a real life person or event from the wild west era (gunfighters, lawmen, outlaws, Native Americans, frontiersmen, etc).

I'm neither a historian or comedian, but I do try to be as accurate as possible whilst dispensing dad jokes and mispronunciations. NSFW language abounds.

    17 - Clay Allison

    Clay Allison once shot a man, stripped down naked, and proceeded to do a war dance over the spot the man died - with nothing on but his birthday suit and a smile.
    Clay didn't know fear. Not necessarily because he was a brave man, but mostly because he was b*****t crazy.
    He's a relatively unknown gunfighter, but he did coin the term "shootist" - a term he most definitely lived up to.
    This is a short one, but more episodes are on the way!

    16 - Deacon Jim Miller

    Jim B. Miller was known by many names. Deacon Jim, due to his association with the Methodist church, the long frock coats he wore, and his habits of never drinking or smoking.
    He also was known as Killin’ Jim and Killer Miller. Both of these nicknames would be much more fitting than that of deacon. Jim Miller was the wild west version of a modern day hit man. At the time of his death he laid claim to killing 51 men. And his favorite tool for the job was a shot gun. So join me as we learn all about the lif

    14 - Nate Champion

    On the afternoon of April 9th, 1892, Nate Champion was holed up in a bullet riddled cabin. Outnumbered and surrounded, he had been able to hold off his attackers since sunrise. But once they managed to set the cabin on fire, Nate knew he had to act and act fast. He could stay inside and burn to death, or leave and face the small army of 50 paid killers that waited outside. Killers hired by cattle barons to get rid of small ranchers just like Champion. Today’s tale is that of an underdog. A true working

    13 - The Mysterious Death Of Butch Cassidy

    In 1908 members of the Bolivian military surrounded a home that historians believe was occupied by American desperados, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. While approaching the home gunfire erupted from inside. One soldier was killed and another wounded. This kicked off one hell of a gunfight that resulted in the death of both outlaws.

    Butch Cassidy’s life was over, nearly 20 years after he robbed his first bank.

    MAYBE.

    15 years later, in 1924, a mysterious man drove up a dusty Wy

    12 - The Great Northfield Raid (James-Younger Gang)

    On December 7th, 1876, 8 strangers rode into the town of Northfield Minnesota.

    Shortly before noon they stopped at a local restaurant and dined on fried eggs. Residents of Northfield would later testify that the men smelled of alcohol and were clearly under the influence.

    After eating, the men left the diner, crossed a bridge, and headed towards the First National Bank of Northfield. They fanned out. Three of men entered the bank, two stood guard directly outside the door, and the other thr
