One man's wasteland. Cecil Garland and Juab County, Utah.

When the US Air Force was looking for empty land on which to build a massive MX missile base, Juab County, Utah, seemed like a no-brainer. After all, only 10,000 people lived there. Unfortunately for them, one of those people was Cecil Garland. We tell the story of how Garland stood firm against the US Government's plan to exploit the land he loved.

Rattlesnake Stations and Stage Coach Barons: Mountain Home, ID

Somehow, Mountain Home, Idaho, isn't in the mountains. In fact, it was founded when one town more or less swiped a post office from another. In this episode, we talk about this little town's peculiar history, as well as Evel Knieval's fateful fall in the nearby Snake River Canyon. Along the way, we'll meet a scoundrel stage coach baron and visit a charming wall made of pennies.
