True stories from the wild and woolly west. Each episode features a real life person or event from the old 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.
