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.

    32 - Judge Roy Bean

    32 - Judge Roy Bean

    When one thinks of the great judges of Yore, certain names stand out above the rest. Names like Judge Harold T. Stone. Judge Judith Sheindlin. Judges Wapner, Mathis, and Joe Brown. Judge Reinhold, Judge Dredd and Mike Judge all bear remembering. But towering over these colossal judicial minds stands one man, one legend so interwoven into the fabric of modern-day jurisprudence you’d be remise not to pay him homage. And that man’s name was Roy Damn Bean. That’s right - Judge Roy Bean - to be exact. The law west of the Pecos known for serving up both justice as well as tasty beverages from his courtroom/saloon known as the Jersey Lilly located in a little fart of a town in west Texas known as Langtry. All rise! Court is now in session on this newest OVERRULED edition of Bloody Beaver Podcast!

    Kit Carson!!! (Kind of)

    Kit Carson!!! (Kind of)

    As many of you are aware I've been doing a series on the famed scout and mountain man Kit Carson on Patreon. I've just completed that series and thought I'd give y'all a taste of it. What you're hearing is Episodes 1, 2, & 17 of the Kit Carson series. If you're interested in hearing the full series, please head on over to Patreon and subscribe. 
    For research on the series I leaned heavily on the book Blood And Thunder: The Epic Story Of Kit Carson And The Conquest Of The American West. It's an amazing read and I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone interested in the topic of Kit Carson, the mountain men, the Navajo, and the history of early New Mexico. 
    Kit lived one HELL of a life and it was fascinating learning all about him. Hope ya'll enjoy it as much as I did. And to those of you who have been following along on Patreon, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    William Sanderson (Interview)

    William Sanderson (Interview)

    Veteran of the United States Army, Law School graduate, Elvis aficionado, Tennessean born and bred, author, actor. Husband and father.
    You may remember him as E.B. Farnum in HBO’s Deadwood, or Sheriff Bud Dearborn on True Blood. He played Lippy on my favorite western, Lonesome Dove, J.F. Sebastian on the cult sci-fi hit Blade Runner, he had a brother Daryl and another brother Daryl on little show called Newhart. Maybe you’ve heard of it.
    Oh, I’m not done. Ever heard of Starsky and Hutch? Knight Rider? The Dukes of Hazard? Married with Children, the X Files, ER, Lost, American Gods.
    How about Coal Miner’s Daughter, Last Man Standing, Gods and Generals, Andersonville?
    The list goes on. It was my great pleasure to talk with Mr. Sanderson, one of the GREATEST character actors of all time!
    His new book, which I literally devoured in two sittings, is called Yes, I’m That Guy: The Rough And Tumble Life Of A Character Actor. Trust me on this one, go buy a few copies. If there’s anyone in your life who’s a fan of older movies, or even an Elvis fan, this would be a great stocking stuffer or birthday gift.

    31 - Black Bart

    31 - Black Bart

    I've labored long and hard for bread,
    For honor, and for riches,
    But on my corns too long you've tread,
    You fine-haired sons of bitches.
    These are the words of Black Bart, the gentleman bandit who preferred to leave poems at the scene of the crime rather than dead bodies. Black Bart wasn’t a killer and he never really hurt anyone, except maybe for Wells Fargo, who’s stagecoaches he robbed at least 28 times over the course of his career. Taking thousands of dollars in the process.
    Black Bart would pay for his crimes by doing a stretch in California’s notorious San QUENTIN prison. And upon his release he vanished. Or did he?
    Who was the mysterious Black Bart? Where’d he come from? Where did he disappear to? Why did he hate Wells Fargo so much?

    30 - King Fisher

    30 - King Fisher

    King Fisher, the flashy Texas wild west gunfighter who once killed a circus tiger just so he could make chaps out of its hide, boasted that he killed 37 men, not counting Mexicans. During his time as an outlaw he had over 100 bandits riding for him as he ruled all of southwest Texas. Who was King Fisher? And where can I find a pair of those chaps? Join me as we explore all of these questions on this newest ivory handled and bedazzled episode of Bloody Beaver Podcast.
