Deaf Education

We have returned! After a brief hiatus, History Honeys is back. This week, Alaina is teaching us about the history of deaf education, and the development of contemporary sign languages. How are sign languages linguistically dynamic and unique? Why are divisions in US deaf culture generational? How are contentious claims laundered as the default, even at the cost of future harm?

The Hays Code

Ninety years ago today, the code of standards known as the Hays Code was put into effect, shaping the form and content off all mainstream film for decades to come. In this episode, Alaina teaches us where it came from, what purpose it served, and how it fell out of use. Is self-regulation a matter of morality or profit? Does power lie in the rules or their enforcer? Did people in the 1940s actually share beds?

Two Objects

From it's foundation, this is a show about the two of us sharing things we find interesting with you and with each other. In that spirit, Alaina is spending this episode talking about two things we all get our hands on without giving a second thought. Facial tissue is the end result of a new material developed for the war effort, and shopping carts are the result of innovation in the way we source our food. What parallels can be found between them?

X-Rays

In this episode we're thankful for modern medicine, and tools that help us heal with less harm. At least, that's how X-rays work now. Alaina teaches us about the early days of these mysterious rays, the scientists, inventors, and doctors who sacrificed their own health to develop them, and some of the odder purposes this miracle technology was put to.

Haunted Honeys - Florida Keys Spookums

It's that time of year again, when Alaina teaches us about the haunted and spooky spots of a certain place, and we do the intro in silly Dracula voices! This year we're getting sub-tropical and talking about the Florida Keys. An island chain once rich from shipping and now a vacation destination, the Keys have been shaken by natural disasters and disease, as well as a few notably creepy individuals. Have these events left a psychic and spiritual stain on the land, or is that just a way to sell more t-shirts? Let's explore!

Louisa May Alcott

Every few years, a new film or miniseries based on Little Women comes along, and this year is no exception. To prepare for Greta Gerwig's upcoming version, Alaina teaches us about its author, her family, and the circles they moved in. When does writing for commercial gain make lasting art? What about this story makes it so appealing to adapt? Was anyone in the 1800s NOT part of a utopian commune?

Disneyland

Alaina returns to our Disney Parks series by going back to the beginning: Disneyland in Anaheim, California. In 1955, after a long time planning and a short time building, Walt Disney presented yet another dream to the world. It was the world's first fully-themed park, complete with a nationally televised opening, and following 10 months of televised previews in prime time. We cover its development, opening, and some stories behind certain Opening Day attractions.
