Folsom Prison Tramp-Stamp Blues

Folsom Prison Tramp-Stamp Blues

January 16, 2020

Welcome back to the super profesh and clean sound quality. This week Mariel sticks to storytelling with that of Antonina Makarova, a nazi-collaborator throughout WWII. She would become known as "Machine-Gun Girl" for her role as an executioner. Then Amanda tells a tale of meth, prison, and love at first sight. That is the story of Cynthia Coffman and James Marlow. If we learn anything from this story, let it be that if ever you're going to get married on a top of a motorcycle, take lots of pictures.
