This is episode 218 and today I bring you the story of the Amazing Texas Guinan, a woman born in 1884 that was a stage and film star but really became known as a highly popular nightclub hostess during the Prohibition era. Oh, and one thing about Texas, you can’t believe a thing she said about herself. What is the truth about her life? Maybe I got some of it right.
