Old Kentucky Tales S7, Ep1: Behind the Scenes with River Queens


Brent and Jason return for a 7th season!  Our first 4 episodes were recorded before OKT went on hiatus in March with the rest of the planet; the last 6 episodes were recorded 5 months later. They talk to Alexander Watson, author of the book River Queens: Saucy Boat, Stout Mates, Spotted Dog, America. Joined by his partner and intrepid shipmate, Dale Harris, they detail their refurbishing of a 1950s wooden Chris-Craft boat, visiting towns and rivers as they sail from Oklahoma to Ohio.  The Fake History Sponsors are the 1915 Cloverport, KY Barbeque and The Modern Hotel of the Cumberland Mountains.
