Season 1 | Episode 9
21m | Oct 6, 2021

This episode is about The Syndicate’s Rum Ring and the murder of its’ Fixer. Our cocktail is Bootleg (originated right here in Minneapolis!) So mix one up and join us while we talk about bootleggers finally paying for their crimes and what not to do if you don’t want to end up in a ditch with 14 bullets in you (spoiler alert: keep your mouth shut)


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.
