The History Guy podcast features two stories of fraudsters, who despite their less than honest lives deserve to be remembered. First is the story of Titanic Thompson, supposedly the inspiration for Sky Masterson of Guys and Dolls, who was so good that he cheated Al Capone at a bet - and made it out alive. Next is Stanley Weyman, a man who spent much of his life pretending to be someone else.
