The Thanking of Now Playing Patrons by the Podcast Producer Arnie, the Podcast co-host Jakob, and the former Californian Stuart.

Brad Pitt may be the outlaw with the target on his back, but the real tragedy about The Assassination of Jesse James is what happened to The Coward that shot him.  Casey Affleck co-stars as Robert Ford, the teenage fanboy who joins his idol on a train robbery that goes so badly it dooms both men to violent ends.  Does this poetic Western deserve more fame and respect than it got from common folk in 2007?  Join Arnie, Stuart, and Jakob as they take May Patrons back to 1881 to learn how America creates legends and losers.  Donate Today!

Outlaw Jesse James is rumored to be the 'fastest gun in the West'. An eager recruit into James' notorious gang, Robert Ford eventually grows jealous of the famed outlaw and, when Robert and his brother sense an opportunity to kill James, their murderous action elevates their target to near mythical status.
