Season 4 continues as Brent and Jason talk about Honest Dick Tate, a 1888 Kentucky State Treasurer who absconded with $100,000 of the state's gold and silver coins, never to be seen again!  This impacted Kentucky's politics, including term limits, for decades and made "Tateism" synonymous with corruption.  Fake History Sponsors this time are a new ad from Kurfee's Paint and a bi-centennial time capsule, waiting to be opened in 2176.  OKT is produced by sound engineer Todd Birdsong at WKCTC's Paducah School of Art and Design.
