Ep 23 - Bloody Boone Helm
We sort of get an extra episode this month with there being five Mondays! This week is an Emily episode and she tells us all about a monster of a man, Boone Helm. Boone was very capable with a Bowie knife and used it on many of his victims.
Our mocktail comes from Drinking for Two by Diana Licalzi and Kerry Benson. Find them on Instagram at @dietitian.diana and @healthycrayvings respectively. We absolutely love them and their books, please give them a follow.
