Ink and Ash: A Short Story Podcast

Mar 13, 2019

This week, Stories of Yore and Yours visits the American West for tales from the California Gold Rush. Visit a town looking to rid itself of moral ne’er-do-wells in “The Outcasts of Poker Flat,” and check in with an Easterner who doesn’t quite know what she’s gotten herself into in “The Girl Who Got Rattled,” which was the basis of a story told in the recent Coen Brothers anthology, “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs”!
