132 - The Osage Native American Murders

July 14, 2020

The often unheard about Osage Native American murders were a series of murders of Osage people in Osage County, Oklahoma during the 1910s–1930s; newspapers described the increasing number of unsolved murders as the "Reign of Terror," lasting from 1921-1926. The estimated Osage death toll is in the hundreds, though reported numbers are much less and investigated deaths far fewer. Newer investigations indicate that many more suspicious deaths during this time could have potentially been misreported or covered up murders, including the deaths of heirs to future fortune.

127 - The Stonewall Uprising

June 16, 2020

As we continue our Pride Month series, we thought the most fitting topic during this time in our history would be the Stonewall uprising. Whether you know it as a protest, a riot, or a revolution, the events at Stonewall in 1969 propelled the gay rights movement into something that could no longer be pushed aside. In this episode, we talk about the events that led up to the riots, the timeline of the first night, and a few key figures that had a huge impact on the movement as a whole.
