Jason and Brent look at John "Wildcat" McKinney, an early teacher in Lexington, KY, who became a hero and legend for having fought off a ferocious bobcat who entered his classroom in 1793.  Fake History Sponsors include Party Line phone service in 1952 and an 1890's cure-all called Bile Beans, which purported to cure many unfortunate things.  OKT is produced by sound engineer Todd Birdsong at WKCTC's Paducah School of Art and Design.
