He was the first governor to be born in Texas. He fought for the people of his beloved home state against the corporate giants of his time, a true rags to riches story. Without him, the history of Texas could have been filled with tales of fraud and malfeasance in the railroad industry. Today we’re talking about Big Jim Hogg.

Before we begin… What’s your favorite Texas sausage?
