    Clever Confidential Ep. 3: Frank Lloyd Wright and the Murders at Taliesin

    Clever Confidential Ep. 3: Frank Lloyd Wright and the Murders at Taliesin

    On the afternoon of August 14th, 1915, fire ripped through Taliesin, the Spring Green, Wisconsin home of the world’s most famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. When the smoke cleared seven people would be dead, murdered with an axe at the hands of Julian Carlton, a servant of Wright’s. But why? The motive remains a mystery to this day. But there are so many other questions. Why does seemingly everyone know Frank Lloyd Wright but strangely, very few seem to know this much darker side of his story? In this episode we’ll investigate all of that as well as the great state of Wisconsin, Wright’s never-ending battle with societal norms, and the interplay between critics and creative professionals. Happy Halloween!

    Thank you to Brad Lynch of Brininstool & Lynch Architects for lending his expertise, insight and colorful commentary and to "The Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas for audio clips from the historic Frank Lloyd Wright interview.

    Clever Confidential is hosted by Amy Devers and Andrew Wagner, produced by 2VDE Media, with editing and sound design by Camille Stennis, production assistance from Ilana Nevins and Anouchka Stephan, and theme music from Thin White Rope’s “Astronomy.”
