About this Episode

This time around, Michelle and Sarah paid a visit to Tom's Town Distilling Company and shared a drink with co-founder Steve Revare, to talk about gin, speakeasies, prohibition, and how political corruption went hand-in-hand with some of the most celebrated times in Kansas City's history. We're referring to infamous political boss Tom Pendergast, who was the most powerful man in KC in the 20s and 30s. Along the way, hear the inside story of an operation that's keeping the spirit of Paris on the Plains alive...fortunately without having to commit any crimes.
