S8E12: Superman | Gouverneur Morris & George Reeves

Get ready for a couple of truly wild rides! First up, Stacie has some hilarious tea on one of America’s lesser-known Founders, Gouverneur Morris. He didn’t just copy edit the US Constitution; he was also such a ladies man that after an accident required the amputation of one of his legs, fellow Founder John Jay expressed that he wished Morris “had lost something else.” Then, Alicia has an old Hollywood tale featuring seduction, mob ties, and ultimately, the suspicious death of Hollywood’s first Superman, TV’s George Reeves.
