    The Aftermath: The 1931 China Floods

    New Guest Expert! On this week’s Aftermath, Rebecca revisits the devastating 1931 Central China Floods with history professor Dr. Zhigou Ye.

    THE 1931 CENTRAL CHINA FLOODS: WHO IS TO BLAME?

    THE 1931 CENTRAL CHINA FLOODS: WHO IS TO BLAME?

    Who’s to blame for the 1931 Central China Floods?
    This week, The Alarmist (Rebecca Delgado Smith) welcomes friend and Amaro maker David Bly to discuss the devastating 1931 floods along the Yangtze River in China and the catastrophic loss of life that followed. There’s only so much we can do when Mother Nature slaps us with a deluge of unprecedented weather events, but could better flood control measures have saved more lives? Perhaps the political turmoil at the time contributed to the poor relief efforts. Or was a lack of maintenance to blame? Fact Checker Chris Smith and Producer Clayton Early join the conversation.

    MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING: WHO IS TO BLAME?

    MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING: WHO IS TO BLAME?

    Who’s to blame for My Best Friend’s Wedding? 
    This week, The Alarmist (Rebecca Delgado Smith) welcomes the host of That's A Gay Ass Podcast Eric Williams to discuss the highly chaotic sabotage and shenanigans in the 1997 rom-com My Best Friend’s Wedding starring America’s sweetheart herself, Julia Roberts. Is the societal pressure to marry young to blame? Perhaps Jules and Michael aren’t the “Best Friends” they thought they were. Or maybe they all just needed some good old fashioned therapy. Producer Clayton Early and Associate Producer Krystal Dinsberg join the conversation. Happy Valentine's Day Alarmy!

    This week, The Alarmist (Rebecca Delgado Smith) welcomes Actor Avital Ash to the show to discuss the catastrophically devastating flu pandemic which wreaked unprecedented havoc throughout the world from 1918-1920.
