Episode details

Hi all,

This is my conversation with David Clarke who spent many years researching Floyd Odlum’s story. You can find an outline of his work and efforts here.

I own a pdf copy of his work and was blown away by the amount of information that David unearthed. While still incomplete, it was a pleasure to dig into the book and I look forward to the day when I can buy a printed copy. In the meantime, it is possible to contact David about purchasing the pdf at davidclarke56@hotmail.com.

I asked David about how he found the story, his research process, what he uncovered that was different from the official narrative, and how Odlum rose and fell.

Unfortunately, we had a few glitches with Zoom. I did my best to clean up the audio but there are still a few fragments here and there. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did.
