I am not sure who to write about this, but it would be wonderful if you could tell the story of Colorado's Baby Doe Tabor and the Matchless mine.

Say Hi Thank you so much for your podcasts. As a man disabled with mostly pain, during covid you enlighten and lighten my life. Podcasts are the great equalizer in a world that still looks down with suspicion at the poor while the powerful remain unquestioned. I often wonder what lore will survive from our time on earth. And whom will tell the tales. Again thanks and Hi.
