It was an absolute pleasure to interview Tommy Breen this week! While we've been internet pals with Tommy for a while now, this was our first chance to meet him face to (virtual) face. While you may know him best from Texas Tommy's Wild West Revue, Tommy also helms the legendary World of Wonders travelling sideshow! Started by Ward Hall this show has now been touring in some incarnation or another for over 70 years! It's a lesson in sideshow history this week as we talk the roots of sideshow, travelling across America playing carnivals, how to make them 'just care', and what it's like to take a cab with a skinned dead goat in your lap.

Today we take a huge deviation for the type of topic we typically cover here on Timesuck. The Space Lizards on Patreon vote on two topics a month through the app, and for today, they voted in my grandfather who passed away back on December 23rd. Probably the most influential person in my life. Today, I cover how the Hall family ended up in Idaho which leads to a history of Idaho settlement. My great-great-grandfather was one of the area's first homesteaders. I also share a lot of stories from my childhood, about central Idaho, and of course Papa Ward. I take you on a timeline of this man's wonderful, inspiring life. He meant a Hell of a lot to me and always will, and I think you'll like the tale of his impressive life. Hail Papa Ward :) Thanks for helping Bad Magic Productions give $12,500 this month to the USC Shoah Foundation.
