Phenomenal show

I stumbled upon this podcast and it’s everything I love in a show: a story, sound effects, and history. They do a fantastic job telling stories from the old west (which also is my favorite time period and area in American history). I binged every season while I painted my house and it actually made me look forward to painting each day, so thanks for that!
