Time for another TD&TR FIELD TRIP! We're braving the elements today to explore abandoned coal mine and ghost town Franklin, WA, nestled up against the infamous Green River and home of one of the PNW's deadliest mine accidents. 37 miners died here as a direct result of corporate greed. We're also taking a look at the life and times of another greedy criminal, the OG himself, Charles Ponzi, father of the Ponzi scheme.

Have you explored Franklin and have a story to share? Have you been swindled lately? Send us your weird dreams, spooky stories, drive suggestions, and pet conspiracy theories (or literally whatever you want!) to dumbandrestlesspodcast@gmail.com, or DM us on Instagram at @dumbandrestlesspodcast or Twitter at @dumbrestlesspod! You can also visit our subreddit for episode discussions at r/dumbrestlesspod.
