More on Herman “Baron” Lamm (ep. 002)

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.

Justin has been around the Internet long enough to remember when people started saying “content is king”.

He has worked for some of Indiana’s largest companies, state government, taught college-level courses, and about 1.1M people see his work every year.

You’ll probably see him around Indianapolis on a bicycle.
