A Fork In Time

In 1890, Buffalo Bill's Wild West show toured Europe and during a performance in Berlin, American exhibitionist sharpshooter Annie Oakley shot the ashes off the cigar held in the mouth of a volunteer from the audience--Kaiser Friedrich Willhelm II.

What if Oakley had missed and accidentally killed the young German ruler?  How might the late 19th and early 20th century have taken a different turn?

Listener Chris Coppola joins the episode to discuss this topic that he suggested.
