Episode 247: John Wilkes Booth’s Mummy and Other Funky Tales of the Wild West

On this episode, Phil Hall interviews John LeMay, author of the new book “Cowboys & Monsters: Vampires, Mummies, and Werewolves of the Wild West,” which recounts such bizarre tales as how the alleged mummy of John Wilkes Booth (seen below) became a carnival display and whether Jack the Ripper left London to become an Arizona bartender.
