This is an Episodic show. You can listen to it in any order, but episode one is always a great place to start.

Full Episode description

WARNING – in this pod you will hear about gunfights and people getting shot and killed. It was all 150 years ago, but very young kids might not want to hear about it. Most of our episodes are for everyone, and we will return to a lighter topic next month, with something for kids of all ages.

We give you all you need to know about Billy the Kid and Ned Kelly, from how they became outlaws at such young ages through to their unhappy endings (without graphic details).

By the way, if you visit Melbourne Gaol, as we did for this episode, they don’t really imprison you for six months. (In your case, it would be more like six years!)

Read industry reviews of Dad’s new World War II Asia-Pacific novel, The Slightest Chance, at paulletters.com. It’s now out on Kindle for US$6.99, as well as in paperback. So is Dad’s first wartime novel, A Chance Kill, a love-story/thriller based on real events in Poland, Paris, London and Prague.

Here are some questions based on today’s episode:

  1. Which country did Billy the Kid live in?
  2. Which state was Ned Kelly born in?
  3. Ned Kelly’s picture appeared at the Olympics in which city?
  4. Which country were the ancestors (the families) of Ned Kelly and Billy the Kid originally from?
  5. Who hired Billy the Kid to fight for him against an Irish family?
  6. Out of what type of farming equipment was Ned Kelly’s armour made?

Please rate and review us wherever you get podcasts. And share our podcast on social media and recommend it to friends – that’s how we’ll keep going.

We’ll be back on the first Saturday of next month!
