This is the second episode and first video recording of my podcast series. The first week talked about Herman “Baron” Lamm, a bank robber almost no one has heard about.
A Prussian soldier kicked out for cheating at cards, he comes to the U.S., gets thrown in a Utah jail for bank robbery, and spends his time plotting how to improve the process of bank robbery.
The first episode discusses his plans and early life. Here I talked more about the exploits of his Midwest bank robberies in the early 20th century, how he was captured, and what led to his downfall after a Clinton, Indiana robbery—like extremely bad luck—after thirteen successful years of bank robberies.
