Executioner Tales (Plus Exclusive)

Exclusive EpisodeWeekend Magazine #26Episode 368 goes out to the scoundrel Cindy Lassiter, who sent me a clip of an obituary for the executioner of Oklahoma in 1948, an amazing final interview with a dying man with dozens of deaths to his credit, not all of them in the death chamber. It’s a fascinating study and piqued my interest, so I poked around a little bit and found a few more obituaries and feature articles about executioners, including an interview with Amos Lund, an old friend from Episode 95 The Haunted Hangman, that I hadn’t seen before.The Common Hangman: A Sketch Of Calcraft (0:04)Haunted Forever By The Gallows’ Grim Shadow (18:36)How A Man Should Be Hanged (34:43)Strange Double Life Of The Hangman (51:10)Afraid of Death?
