The Muckrakers

The player is loading ...

This episode is about an historic kidnapping, and two journalists who just couldn't let it go. Our cocktail is the Ward 8. So mix one up and join us while we talk kidnapping, editorial attacks, real attacks and murder.


Volsteadland is a podcast about the seedy underworld of the 1920s and 30s in Minneapolis, focusing on notorious mobster Isadore Blumenfeld, a.k.a. Kid Cann.  

If you or your parents, grandparents, etc. have any stories, folklore, or anything really, on Isadore Blumenfeld, aka Kid Cann, please let me know. We’d love to get in touch and chat about it or use your story in the podcast. Anonymous of course, unless you want credit!

Phone: 612-284-4463 (leave voicemail or text)

We'd love to hear from you at any rate, just send us a note to tell us how we're doing!
