The Best Story I’ve Heard Today with Ken Booth

February 23, 2018

Do you ever hear or read outlandish stories or ridiculous attempts to explain things and wonder "Where did this conspiracy theory come from anyway?" Today we talked about a story that helps you test those Elvis-is-an-alien, Bermuda Triangle, Bigfoot-has-been-on-the-moon theories. An old friend and former boss, Ken Booth, who is the co-founder of the excellent Shorpy.com and Vintagraph.com joined the show to help us make sense of those things that, sometimes don't seem to make any sense at all. (Unless they do. Or unless that's what they would have us believe.)

Check out Booth's Twitter, which is a feed that always offers great reads. And visit his website. You'll also want to check out the work sites, like Shorpy.com for historic photos and top quality prints and Vintagraph.com which offers truly terrific poster prints. (I have several. He didn't ask me to say that.)
