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!

The mid-19th century in America was a time of new popular philosophies about the order of the universe and the individual's place in it. One example is the dawn of Spiritualism: the belief that the spirits of the dead can be contacted, and that they have answers to our urgent questions. In this episode, Grant teaches us about two cases: the prototypical founders of movement, and one of its most bizarre figures. Once a popular movement starts, does it ever really end? How much faith should be put in a prophet that makes a profit? What purpose does debunking serve?

Alcatraz

It's our third anniversary episode, which means scenic islands and shipwrecks. Well, instead of a ship it's an escape raft made from raincoats, and concrete cell blocks aren't particularly scenic. That's right, this episode is about the setting of Sean Connery's classic The Rock: Alcatraz Island.

We've been spending a lot of time with US history and it's time to head abroad. Grant gets meta with an episode that does just that! Japan spent hundreds of years isolating itself (from a certain point of view) until an American fleet gave them the opportunity (from a certain point of view) to open their society to the colonial powers. What's the difference between diplomacy and coercion? How can you maintain tradition in a changing world? Is an equal exchange even possible?

The night grows long, but far away is a place where the sun stays in the sky for six months at a time, drawing lazy circles and never crossing the horizon. Such a place could drive one mad. We talk about disasters, suspicious deaths, and a waterfall of blood in our annual Haunted Honeys episode. This year, Alaina takes us on ice.

Continuing our string of connected episodes, Grant dives into one of the events referenced in our previous topic: The 1906 San Francisco Earthquake. Among the deadliest events in American history, it was a watershed moment. Disaster relief, seismology, and the city itself all changed completely in 1906. Is efficency more valuable than dignity? Is the region prepared for the next one?

In the last days of the English empire, the people of Iran wanted to shake off the economic imperialism of British Petroluem. The movement spread, and the Americans got involved to defend the status quo. Grant teaches us about the factions in play, the tactics used, and the beginning of the US's policy of regime change. When has imperialism improved the lives of people living under it? How can we accept the narrative that inciting chaos creates stability? Who's next?

Alaina returns to another small piece of 1893's Columbian Exposition, and look at the Woman's Building. Designed and decorated by trailblazing women, and filled with work and exhibits by women from around the world, it was one of the most popular buildings at the fair. The fair also hosted the World’s Congress of Representative Women, a week-long convention on women's issues and a landmerk in early feminist history. Did it fulfill its purpose? Who benefited the most? What can women's movements today learn from the successes and mistakes of 1893?

[Note: The murals were 58x12 feet, not inches]
