Hauptmann's Ladder Restored - 146

The Generation Why Podcast

The Generation Why Podcast released its first episode in 2012 and pioneered the true crime genre in the podcasting world. Two friends, Aaron & Justin, break down theories and give their opinions on unsolved murders, controversies, mysteries and conspiracies.

The Generation Why Podcast

This episode has been professionally restored. We are re-releasing it so that the audience can finally hear and understand the interview. Hauptmann’s Ladder Restored. Author Richard T Cahill Jr. joins the podcast to discuss his book, ‘Hauptmann’s Ladder’. This highly researched look into the Lindbergh baby kidnapping case may finally put an end to questions people have had over the years regarding the investigation, convicted suspect ‘Bruno’ Hauptmann, John Condon, Cemetery John, the trial, & Charles Lindbergh himself. We highly recommend that interested listeners read Cahill's book. It is one of the very best true crime books you'll ever read.
