Face-To-Face With Pretty Boy Floyd
The centerpiece of Episode 378 is a quest for an interview with the infamous bank robber and murderer Charles “Pretty Boy” Floyd by Oklahoma reporter Vivian Brown. Although her reporting verges on glorifying Floyd’s celebrity, something we try to avoid, her six-part series published in the days between Floyd’s death in Ohio and his home-town burial, she also provides a deep insight into the way citizens viewed Depression-era bandits as anti-establishment folk heroes. But let’s not forget that Floyd murdered at least seven people, even if we don’t count the Kansas City Massacre.
