In this episode of the Running Iron Podcast Craig, Jim, and “Oil Can” Rathbun are joined in the bunkhouse by Austin, Texas, resident Rick Schwertfeger. Rick is a retired public health professional who has also become a regular contributor to both Frontier Partisans and Running Iron Report. Rick sits down to discuss internet dating, former Texas Governor Rick Perry’s shooting prowess, and his studies of frontier life during the American War for Independence.
As a bonus track, the Running Iron boys are also joined by Miami Firefighter, and former US Marine, Carlos Constanzo. Carlos talks about his family’s experience before, during, and after the Castro takeover of Cuba.
It was an honor to have both men in the studio, so we invite you to pour yourself a fine beverage, light a cigar, and join us for another informative, occasionally funny, and very interesting Running Iron Podcast.
