THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE: In the American Old West, trails were used by immigrants from the eastern United States, between 1830 and 1870. These colonists began to settle various regions of North America west of the Interior Plains, during the overland migrations of the mid-19th century. There were two major wagon networks, one based typically out of Missouri and the other out of Santa Fe de Nuevo México. These trail networks have become embedded in the folklore of the United States as one of the significant influences that have shaped the content and character of the nation. Whether its a fact or a legend, behind it always lie a great story.
Guns, rifles, and other firearms have been an important part of American culture and history, long before there was a United States of America. It is no surprise that when the founding fathers wrote the U.S. Constitution, right after free speech, a free and independent press, and the right of free association, the right to own and bear personal firearms was right at the top of the list of American citizen rights. Sadly, not all Americans have embraced this right lawfully, or with a sense of community. These are the individuals we know as "Outlaws."
Over the centuries, Americans have frequently idealized and romanticized outlaws both in legend and written history. In the old American West, they had names like "Billy the Kid," "the James Gang," and Wyatt Earp. During the interwar period and Great Depression of the 20th century, outlaws took on a "Robin Hood" mystique which along with weak state and federal firearms laws and law enforcement, allow them to roam the countryside taking what they wanted. And through it all, from the 19th century today, they all had one common thing linking them: Guns.
To learn more about American outlaws and the guns that made them both famous and notorious, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham for Military Monday at 1 p.m. EST. His guests today will be the noted Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) husband-and-wife writing team, Gerry and Janet Souter. They will be discussing their new book GUNS OF OUTLAWS, which chronicles the famous firearms of American outlaws over the past several centuries. In addition to the more famous outlaws and gains most people are familiar with, Gerry and Janet will talk about some of the lesser-known criminals and gunfighters over the years.

On this week’s show, your friends in podcasting begin with a brief exchange concerning Tom Cruise and Veterans Day, followed by a discussion of the publishing business and “novellas”. Then, a note from a loyal listener leads to more discussion about Vincent Price, before Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness launch into a discussion of German Expressionism, the impact it had on silent films, film noir, David Lynch and even the art work of … Dean, himself.
Then, the gents follow up on an email from a listener last week concerning digital piracy. This results in Dean and Phil listing and analyzing the top ten most pirated movies of the past year and whether any of their financial fortunes were actually harmed by this piracy.
Then, it’s the ten movie trailers that forever changed the way films were advertised and sold.
Finally, Phil wraps up with his take on the versatile and brilliant Stephen Merchant’s new series “Hello Ladies”.
Trust us, somehow, the entire show turns out to be a riot.
