Old Timey Crimey #50: The Bath School Massacre - “Reading Saves”

February 28, 2020
It's our 50th episode! To celebrate, we're going to talk about a horrible massacre.
This week, a man known around town as "The Dynamite Farmer," and also known as that guy who pinches pennies, kills his neighbor's dog, and argues with everyone. Then, to top all that off, he does the unthinkable, and we proceed to try to make sense of the senseless.
Plus, don't miss: Chuck Norris's cousin, Scott's dead body surprise, and how reading saves.
