Van Gogh and Kissing Cousins

Van Gogh and Kissing Cousins

After reading a biography of Vincent Van Gogh and learning of his unrequited love for one of his cousins, our storyteller recalls the deep and painful love he had for one of his cousins that was revealed during a Tom Thumb Wedding.  In part two of the episode Don Murphy tells the story of Baby and Boo, two family friends who his parents help migrate from the piney woods of Louisiana to Southern California.  You will hear about the infamous Angola Penitentiary and dark tales of men losing their limbs in the saw mills.
