129: Dark History: How a Shakespeare Play Caused New York's Deadliest Riot

Hi friends, happy Wednesday! Did you know one of America’s deadliest riots actually started inside a theater in New York. But instead of a drunk senator causing the chaos--I'm looking at you, Lauren Boebert--it was caused by two actors, with decades of beef between them.

Hi friends, happy Wednesday! The story of the Kennedy’s has been so romanticized by the media over the years. People are *obsessed* with them.

Hi friends, happy Wednesday! Never in history has there been a more unappreciated animal than the pigeon. Most people think they are just disease infected rats with wings. Right?

Hi friends, happy Wednesday! Now, before the Olympics were a thing, it was really just a bunch of Greek competitions about testing physical limits. They had no fancy ass equipment or Nike sponsorships. But since then, a lot of people have been abused, and  cities have been destroyed.

125: Dark History: Thousands of Women Died in These Secret Asylums

Hi friends, happy almost St. Patty’s Day! I’ll be honest with you… it’s hard to shock me anymore. So when I tell you that this story that I found *SHOOK ME* to my core… you know it’s for real. While I was looking into lesser-known Irish history, I kept reading about these things called the Magdalene Laundries. And while something like “laundry” seems innocent enough, this story is anything but that. These Catholic Church corruption-founded facilities destroyed the lives of countless women, and justice has yet to be served–even to this day.

Hi friends, happy Thursday Welcome to the Dark History podcast. It’s no secret that the FBI has had a bad reputation for spying, sleuthing, and watchlists. But where did it all begin?
