We talk about the history and memory of Jones county, and of course, the film. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-rogue-historian/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-rogue-historian/support
I read this book straight through with increased interest at every turn of the page…and I don’t want to spoil the intricacies of the ending. Let’s just say that Gayle used the “I was just kidding” defense and well…he was not among those on the gallows when justice was finally served...so go figure. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-rogue-historian/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-rogue-historian/support
