What is Death in the West? Glad you asked. Death in the West is a history and true-crime podcast dedicated to the American West’s strange crimes and historically resonant intrigues.
Season one of Death in the West brings together a menagerie of larger-than-life characters who thrived, battled, and collided as the Old West met the Industrial Age. In Butte, Montana during the summer of 1917 low-down thugs cross paths with kingpins who alter the course of capitalism while revolutionary idealists plead their cause to frontier rogues.
The Death in the West podcast team are not co-hosts by accident or whim. As two sets of siblings growing up in Missoula, Montana, we spent hours together making art in a place that was influenced by the Seattle and Portland music scenes but still had the kind of “charming” mountain town qualities that pushed bored teenagers to create new things.
