In 1982, seven people in the greater Chicago area died from taking Tylenol capsules that had been filled with cyanide. No clear evidence was found pointing to a culprit, and no motive has been determined. What remains is a story of consumer safety, and how law enforcement acts when they have no leads.

A Look at ‘20

Welcome to 2021! We bring in the year with the 900th anniversary of a shipwreck that threw England into chaos, and the 200th anniversary of a piece of culinary folk history. The White Ship sank, and people of every social station drowned the same. Tomatoes came to New Jersey through the same unexciting means as any crop, but a striking story will kep alive regardless.

Welcome back, dear ghoulish listeners, as we celebrate the season with tales of three reported haunts in detroit, Michigan. First, is a massive and active building whose tragic architect still walks the halls. Next is an abandoned hotel, former home to a serial poisoner. Last is now a vacant lot, but was once the headquarters of an occult prophet who died at the hands of an unknown axe murderer.

Sacco & Vanzetti

On this episode Grant takes us back 100 years to a fatal robbery at a shoe factory, and the legacy of the men who had the crime pinned on them. Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti came to America searching for prosperity, and found the brutality of exploitation and prejudice. The greatest weight of which fell on them when they were executed by a justice system bent on quashing an ideology, rather than seeking either justice or truth.

The Benin Bronzes

In this episode Grant teaches us about the Benin Bronzes, thousands of exquisite pieces of art that are not made of bronze, and not in Benin. And to talk about this specific crime of colonialism, we have to talk about the empire it came from, and the shifting dynamic between Europe and the world as capitalism and white supremacy developed side-by-side.

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?

This week, Alaina demonstrates that with a selection of stories about the things people wore in the US and UK during the Second World War.
