In this episode, Alaina resurrects one of her old series: looking at the live-action feature films of the Walt Disney studio. Following the deaths of the studio's founding brothers, and the beginning of a long period of rocky financials, Disney's film output was, well, boring and bad. We look over their movies from 1970-1975 to point out the few bright spots, place people and trends into their contexts, and bring up the much better work these artists were capable of.

Happy Valencrimes Day! This year's topic observes the strictest traditions, so we're talking about a series of murders in 1800s Chicago. Thomas Neill Cream used his medical practice and willingness to help those in need to prey on the desperate and disadvantaged. But his true targets may not have been the people he poisoned, but the ones he attempted to blackmail by accusing them of the murders.

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.

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.

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?
