Happy Valencrimes Day! This year Grant wants to talk about a fraud perpetrated on a global scale, which in turn led to corruption, war crimes, and generally made everyone's life worse over the lat 17 years: the case for the 2003 invasion of Iraq. For more than a year, the Bush administration pushed the most extreme interpretation of raw intelligence, without regard for its accuracy or reliability, to justify a war. Meanwhile, anyone presenting a correct assessment of the facts was attacked and deplatformed.

As we said last episode, we are not home to put out our usual content, but we did have something to share. When this episode drops we will be enjoying the sights, sounds, and tastes of EPCOT. This bonus episode follows the process of planning a Walt Disney World vacation, the reasons we had for making the choices we did, and a few pieces of advice you might find useful, or at least entertaining. We'll be back in two weeks' time with our annual Valencrimes episode.

In 1908, Anne Shirley was introduced to the world, and became one of the most popular figures in all-ages literature. Anne was the creation of Lucy Maud Montgomery, who wrote 20 novels in a prolific writing career. In this episode, Alaina teaches us about Montgomery's life, perspective, and tragedies; and also the impact of her stories and their many adaptations.

A Look at ‘19

Happy New Year! We're starting off 2020 by catching up on two centennials, the Molasses Flood and the Black Sox scandal of 1919. First, Alaina looks at the sudden death and long-term disruption of an industrial accident that covered a Boston neighborhood for months. Then, Grant tries to cut through the legends of the greatest scandal in baseball to find what we can really know, and what that means.

Happy Holidays! We're taking a break from history this week, and sharing some of the stuff from our cutting room floor. Please enjoy these digressions, false starts, and peeks into "the process". As promised, we'll be back next time with our annual New Year's special.

As we look back on the year that passed, Grant is reminded of an even more explosive one: 1848. The great powers of Europe had made themselves the center of the world, and then those powers collapsed as a broad coalition of citizens rose up in the name of freedom. But whose freedom counts most? Is this a story of nations or of classes? Why are revolutions graded pass/fail?

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.

The New Deal was a sweeping suite of programs and policies to combat the Great Depression of the 1930s. Several of those programs provided for artists in exchange for their labor producing new art. What kind of art sprouted from this system? How did society benefit from a boom in freely available art and performance? Why hasn't this level of investment continued?

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!

Yesterday was Indigenous Peoples Day, so Grant is here to talk about a recent event in the history of one indigenous nation. The Cold War arms race required fuel, and it was found in the stone beneath the Navajo Nation. Decades of environmental degradation and ethical failures followed, and only ended when demand for ore dropped. Who can we trust to act as stewards of the land? Why is profit the final measurement of value?
