The Spark

Season 1 | Episode 12
16m | Dec 8, 2021

This is a bonus episode where you'll hear the full conversation I had with my friend Melissa about how she "met" Kid Cann. We also talk about my haunted house, her book and podcast and a few other things. I hope you enjoy it.


I hope the sound quality of the call portion won’t turn you off. I tried to fix it, and it honestly sounds better once you get used to it :)


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.
