    This podcast has really struck GOLD with this latest episode! I listen on occasion, but the “Great Train Robbery” was of particular interest to me, as I’ve ridden over that famous bridge 20-30 times. This was an incredible story with great historical context, and it will ensure I’ll check back for future podcast titles. Excellent episode, great questions by the host and most certainly a great authority on the robbery by the gentleman being interviewed. Good Show!

    I remember a tale that the first thing these robbers did with the money was to play Monopoly with real money!
