Hidden History of Waco

Eric S. Ames joins us again to talk about his new book, Hidden History of Waco. You may remember him from our tornado episode. We discuss stories from the book including the man with two tombs, one of the longest books every written, and the church built in a day!

You can find Eric’s book in bookstores near you and online.

We talked about an odd picture on the podcast. Eric wasn’t able to track down any more information on said picture, but if you know anything about it, get in touch!
