Just Gonna Read This
A different kind of podcast. No interviews. No opinions. Very little common sense, or good taste. A podcast untainted by success. What is it?

S4E2: The Sudden Death of Levi Pinkerton
If you listen to this or any episode, send us an email and say hi! Even if you think this is the worst garbage you’ve ever heard, we want to hear from you. *email@example.com* The Sudden Death of Levi Pinkerton is our very first "true crime" episode. I hang out on IRC and ICQ on Thursdays between 9pm and 11pm, and the people there tell me that true crime is a very popular podcast genre, so I figured I'd throw my flat cap into the ring with this doozy of an episode. Ripped straight from the newspaper account and official transcript of the Coroner's Court Inquest into the death of Levi Pinkerton, 34, in Birmingham England in July 1889. Email us: *firstname.lastname@example.org*

Got a question? Comment? Hate mail idea? Drop me an email and say hi! I’d love to hear from you. email@example.com http://www.justgonnareadthis.ca
