In partnership with Texas Monthly, Skip Hollandsworth's "The Last Ride of Cowboy Bob" is now available as an audio download, where the length and timeliness of a podcast meets the high-quality production of a full-length audio program.

Cowboy Bob was a master bank robber, robbing countless banks for thousands of dollars and confounding cops along the way. He would rob banks without a weapon, without any apparent muscle or accomplice, and he'd steal license plates to throw police off his trail. The police had a lot of questions and theories when it came to Cowboy Bob, but the last thing they would have suspected was that he was a woman.

"The Last Ride of Cowboy Bob" profiles Peggy Jo Tallas, a seemingly average, middle-aged Texan woman who cared for her elderly, ailing mother and was beloved by family and friends. Skip Hollandsworth traces her life leading up to her mysterious crime wave, uncovering hints of how and why Peggy became Bob, and attempting to get to the heart of who this woman really was.

Since joining the Texas Monthly staff in 1989, executive editor SKIP HOLLANDSWORTH has received several journalism awards, including a National Headliners Award. He has been a finalist four times for a National Magazine Award, the magazine industry's equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize, and in 2010 he won the National Magazine Award in feature writing for "Still Life." His true crime history, The Midnight Assassin, about a series of murders that took place in Austin in 1885, was published in April 2016 by Henry Holt and Co.
