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.

This is Part 2! If you have not already done so, give Part 1 a listen!

As the Liver-Eater's reputation grew he began working as a guide for prospectors and a scout for General Miles, against the Lakota, Cheyenne, and Nez Perce. Later he'd take jobs in law enforcement in Coulson and Red Lodge, Montana, work in a Wild West Show, and even grow cabbages! And Johnson's story doesn't even end when he dies! Was Robert Redford really one of Johnson's pallbearers? Did he really have a Crow wife? Did he ever actually kill any Crow warriors? Could he have possibly been born in 1841? Did he really lasso a whale???? Find out all this and more on this "You've come far, pilgrim" part 2 edition of Bloody Beaver Podcast!
