The Apache warrior Geronimo is a legend, but he was once just a man who had a family. The death of his loved ones at the hands of the Mexicans pushed Geronimo into becoming a fighter. The Anglos would constrict the Apache way of life and Geronimo would retaliate in ways that would embarrass the US government. He escaped capture time and again. Eventually, he would surrender and then he would become a celebrity in captivity as he was ushered to world fairs and western shows. Such an enduring spirit could not be snuffed out by death. Reports abound from many different locations that Geronimo’s apparition has been seen and his spirit has been felt. Join us as we explore the life and afterlife of Geronimo! The Moment in Oddity is by Bob Sherfield and features Bamahenge and This Day in History is by Steven Pappas and features the Hollywood Communist Report.
