I’m creating this informal historical series in an effort to document the strange and unusual events of our beloved Texas town: Austin, the live music capital of the world. Stories span from true crime to the unexplained, but all take place in ATX. With the help of my fellow Austinites, I’ll be covering bizarre cases from across time… all for the sake of getting a closer look at the history of Austin’s Weird.
Episode 1: Charles Whitman - The UT Bell Tower Shooting Part 1 (minisode)
Charles Whitman affected a lot of lives on August 1, 1966 when he shot up UT campus from the 307-foot Bell Tower. Join me, Syd Capello, for Part 1 which is a minisode where I go over the beginning of this infamous case. Austin's own Dr Emma Lou Linn was on campus that day and will be joining me in Part 3 and 4.
So I know on my audio I say source materials for this episode will be listed in my shownotes but I actually cannot list them here due to character limitations. For all my sources and some commentary on them, visit https://www.austinsweird.com/
