Hi friends, happy Thursday!
Welcome to the Dark History podcast. The circus. What a fun place for everyone. Unless you’re one of the employees they threw off a moving train. Or are an animal at one. Or were what they considered a “freak” Or even just decided to go be in the audience the day it all got set ablaze. Oh yeah. Today we’re talking about the dark history of the circus. And believe me when I tell you, there is a whole bunch of shady stuff going on under the big top.
I appreciate you for coming by, and tune in next week for more dark history.
You can find Dark History podcast on Apple, Spotify, wherever you listen to your podcasts, and every Thursday here on my Youtube for the visual side of things.
