Episode 99: Sharpshooter Annie Oakley

WikiSleep Podcast

One of the most famous figures to emerge from the era of the Wild West, Annie Oakley's skill with a pistol brought her international renown. An advocate for teaching women how to handle a gun, she shot through cigars as they hung from her husband's mouth, and could split a playing card edge-on at 30 paces. A fan favourite, she was the second-highest grossing performer in Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, after Wild Bill himself. #WikiSleep #AnnieOakley #Sleep #WildWest #MentalHealth

Public and Private Life of Annie Oakley

She Said What - Conversations at The Cowgirl

Episode three of She Said What – Conversations at The Cowgirl podcast is formatted differently than our other interview episodes. We discuss both the public and private life of one of the most well-known cowgirls ever – 1984 Honoree Annie Oakley. In this conversation, we talk about aspects of Oakley’s life, beyond her world-acclaimed sharp shooting skills, which most listeners are not familiar with.

219 - Annie Oakley

Timesuck with Dan Cummins

At the height of her career, sharpshootin' Annie Oakley the talented sharpshooter was the most famous woman in America, if not the world - dazzling audiences and setting records as she fired at clay pigeons, birds, glass balls and performing a wide array of "How in the Hell is that possible?" trick shots. Annie's love of guns began in her childhood, when she didn’t use them to entertain, but to survive. Literally. Born Phoebe Ann Mosey, Annie picked up her father’s gun when he died, and she hunted to help feed her incredibly impoverished family. As a teen, she’d use her skills to pay off her mother’s mortgage. And it was during one of these shooting competitions where she would meet and beat her future husband, an Irish immigrant named Frank Butler. Their love story is pretty damn special and incredible. In a time when a female breadwinner was almost unheard of, Annie went on to become one of the highest paid entertainers in the world.
