Podcast on Crazy Eastland History

I had a fun conversation with Texas Time Capsule Podcast last week. We talked about Old Rip (a famous horned toad), the lynching of Santa, and the hotel. Check it out here or wherever you listen to podcasts!

  2. I loved hearing you tell the tales of Ol’ Rip, and how it lost its leg, and the last public lynching in Texas. It’s hard to believe the horned toad lived in a box for 30 years. So hard to believe, I wonder if there was a hoaxter behind it. Great interview, in my opinion.

    • Thank you for listening! It is hard to believe, but I’ve read some old first hand accounts of people who did. After all these years, who knows. Old Rip is kinda like Santa; it’s more fun to believe in him than not.
