The great early 19th-century American eccentric, "Lord" Timothy Dexter strolls his demesne pondering a 108 year-old curse.

With an election just a couple days away, we're off to the races with presidential candidates of and other overachieving eccentrics.

Topics include:

  • The third party candidates of the 20th century who helped shape today's political landscape. 
  • October Surprises that jolted 19th century POTUS races.
  • The one-and-only "Lord" Timothy Dexter, the bats**t crazy Newburyport merchant who fell repeatedly ass-backwards into a fortune.

And as promised in the show...we give you Lord Dexter's grand "palace", bedecked with statues of other great men.

WHAT WE'RE READING

Check out "Lord" Timothy Dexter's completely insane autobiography (of sorts) "A Pickle for the Knowing Ones, or Plain truths in a homespun dress."
