Episode 44-Shot-Back Mountain

This week, Erica and Billy bring you an extra long episode covering an extra long fuck up by the U.S. government. And it all centered around one man who just wanted to live with his family in solitude in northern Idaho. He found out the hard way that you can still have asshole neighbors on a remote mountain ridge. When all was said and done, over 400 government agents and officials would be called in to arrest this one man. Magnificently mustachioed Geraldo Rivera even makes an appearance! And during an 11-day stand-off, several people would end up shot in the back and/or dead. Way to go, ‘Merica!
