The Folklorist: Episode 3

NewTV is proud to present the third episode of The Folklorist. Host John Horrigan explores the story behind the love that launched the career of the most successful pirate captain in history, a nuclear meltdown that was long forgotten, an April Fool’s prank that caused hysteria in a small town, and a tragic tale of two lovers who met an untimely end. Also featuring Campfire segments of George Washington, The San Francisco Earthquake of 1906, Dracula, and Houdini.
