History Banter Podcast, Episode 24: Bonnie and Clyde (part 2) – Frank Hamer and the Texas Rangers w/ Jody Ginn

This week, Brad Folsom and I (Cameron Sinclair) talk with Texas Ranger expert Jody Ginn to get more information on Frank Hamer and the hunt for Bonnie and Clyde. We’ll talk more about both the 1967 and 2013 films, as well as about the Texas Rangers organization in the early 1900s. Why was Frank Hamer involved in the hunt for Bonnie and Clyde? Who played a better Hamer, 2013 William Hurt or 1967 Denver Pyle (Uncle Jessie from the Dukes of Hazard)? And, could the real Frank Hamer actually hear gunshots before they were even fired? All this and more…
