InfoBlast #14 | The Mason Family InfoBlast

    • History

A man who never knew his father stumbles upon a YouTube video of an old game show that sets into motion a wild ride of discoveries about the man--and family--he never knew, including a true crime political killing of a journalist linked to future President Lyndon B. Johnson and the Box 13 Scandal of Southeast Texas. Nick is joined by Keith Mason, author of "Please Stand Up," a memoir about his father's side of the family he never knew, a story that is stranger than fiction. Also strange is Nick's own (very mild) connection to the story!
