True stories from the wild and woolly west. Also really lame jokes! Each episode I cover a real life person or event from the wild west era (gunfighters, outlaws, lawmen, Native Americans, frontiersmen, etc). I'm neither a historian nor a comedian, just a fan of history. I do, however, try to be as accurate as possible when covering these topics. All whilst dispensing dad jokes and totally butchering the English language.

Arkansas Dave Rudabaugh was an old west outlaw who some say taught Doc Holliday how to shoot in addition to being the only man that Billy The Kid ever feared. He was hunted by Wyatt Earp and arrested by both Bat Masterson AND Pat Garrett. Ran with the Dodge City Gang of Las Vegas, NM, rode with Billy The Kid, and was never held accountable for his many crimes. So why the hell isn't this Rudabaugh more well known? Find out all about Arkansas Dave on this newest episode of Bloody Beaver Podcast!
