Episode Notes

“There’s gold in them thar hills!” “Which whar ones?!” “I ain’t tellin’, Claim Jumper!” “Then I reckon I hafta shoot ya…” “How’s that gonna help ya?” I don’t know, I’m crazy with the Gold Fever!” That’s how it is in the movies, but the reality is quite different. In this episode, Ken and Glen discuss how a Gold Rush plays out for the people involved, the communities that develop around the strike, and the legacies afterward.
