E031: High Explosives

May 15, 2018

This podcast we read a tale from a 1921 issue of Adventure magazine about two great things that go great together: Prohibiition and nitroglycerin. High Explosives will transport you to Colorado's oil country and introduce you to the great character find of 1921, the Shooter! A superhero who fends of bootleggers with his- wait, I'm getting an update. Oh, okay: The Shooter is just the nickname for the guy who throws nitro down a rundown oil well in the hopes that a big explosion will result in more big oil. Still, he's got a Batmobile of sorts (an old, beat-up wagon) and a sidekick (a mangy dog), and a costume (well, a lot of dust). But he does run into some bootleggers and joins up with coppers to fight crime! 

Come join us east bound and down for some old adventure with a car chase, shooting, and explosions! Plus hooch. Sweet, sweet hooch.
