Who was the real David Ferrie? Mythologized by Joe Pesci’s hyper-paranoid portrayal in Olive Stone’s JFK (1991), the real David Ferrie was more complex than we knew – that is, until the recent file releases provided more depth. Rob Clark, the host of The Lone Gunman Podcast, returns to guest host an in-depth study of the real David Ferrie.
Rob Clark can be heard on The Lone Gunman Podcast archives.

transcript, please. that would get more traction. i’ve run out of laundry whilst listening to this engrossing dharma. Stars in your Crown, Rob+
Great episode. I loved listening to it. ST you need to get Rob Clark on more often he’s a great researcher and knows how to get people thinking. Some people might think that was discussed was gross but it needed to be said in those contexts. Dave Ferrie is a key player in the assassination and most people don’t know much about these guys in the New Orleans/Dallas network.

Tony, Rob is invited on to do as many episodes as he would like to do. He currently has agreed to do a quarterly guest host spot, so we have stuck to that. Though it is on hiatus, he is still the host of the Lone Gunman Podcast, and I think it would be unfair to him to ask that he do more than he already does for us. But I agree that he does a great job on the MWN Show and he is appreciated. — S.T.

I hope this isn’t off topic, but I heard last year (2017) that David Ferrie was spotted in the vicinity of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, around the time of the 1967 Mothman sightings. He was reported to have his hair dyed shocking bright orange, and was driving a Volkswagen Beetle, which was the kind of car some early Men in Black drive. Have you heard this info before? And thanks for this great podcast. I’ll definitely check out your other podcasts.
