    America’s Monuments | The Colossus of New York Harbor

    America’s Monuments | The Colossus of New York Harbor

    It’s perhaps the most iconic of American monuments -- the Statue of Liberty. A towering 305-foot sculpture of copper and steel that is synonymous with American values of liberty, freedom and self-determination. But it began as a gift from France. And when it first arrived on American soil, its future was far from certain.

    For over a decade, artists, craftsmen and everyday people from France and the United States worked together on what would be dubbed America’s “New Colossus.”  The statue they built would take on new associations with the passage of time -- but it would forever remain a symbol of America’s loftiest ideals.

    Great Chicago Fire | Out of the Ashes

    Great Chicago Fire | Out of the Ashes

    After the 1871 fire destroyed a third of their city, Chicagoans wanted to do more than rebuild. They wanted to envision a new kind of American city. That included everything from changes to fire codes and labor laws to an entirely new style of architecture -- the skyscraper.

    Professor Ann Keating is an urban historian and expert on Chicago history both before and after the Great Fire. She and Lindsay discuss the rapid growth and social changes that made Chicago so vulnerable, what lessons city leaders learned -- or failed to learn -- in the fire’s aftermath, and the parallels between the Great Chicago Fire and other, more recent urban disasters.

    Great Chicago Fire | The Great Rebuilding

    Great Chicago Fire | The Great Rebuilding

    As dawn broke on October 10, 1871, the dazed survivors of the Great Chicago Fire stumbled through their burned and battered city. A 30-hour inferno had reduced Chicago to ashes.

    Homes and business were replaced by gaping holes and smoldering rubble. Tens of thousands of people had lost their houses and jobs. Many had lost loved ones. As aid poured into the city, officials turned their attention to the challenges of distributing relief and maintaining order.

    But the embers had barely cooled when residents went to work throwing up makeshift structures and reopening their businesses. Over the next two years, Chicagoans would rapidly rebuild their city.  It was the start of a recovery that would spur architectural innovation and urban renewal, turning Chicago into a modern metropolis.

    Wondery Presents American Innovations: Mission to Mars

    Wondery Presents American Innovations: Mission to Mars

    On July 20th, 1989, President George H.W. Bush announced his vision for a manned mission to Mars. Nearly 3 months later, NASA published a complex 30 year plan to get humans to Mars - with a hefty price tag - nearly $450 billion dollars. However, Congress refused to authorize the spending, and NASA’s manned mission to Mars was grounded before it could even get started. Over 30 years later, the power of government and big business necessary for such an undertaking is finally starting to come together and now the next chapter of humankind’s space-race is on. American Innovations: Mission to Mars explores what advancements have been made and what it will take to send humans to Mars.

    Great Chicago Fire | Fleeing the Flames

    Great Chicago Fire | Fleeing the Flames

    Just before midnight on October 8, 1871, the inferno that had ravaged Chicago’s West Side leapt the Chicago River. A wall of flames surged toward downtown, threatening to devour Chicago’s most magnificent hotels, offices, and government buildings. Mayor Roswell B. Mason raced to the Chicago courthouse, but he would soon find he was helpless to save his city.

    Panic-stricken South Side residents streamed out of their homes and fled to the North Side, the stately residential area they were certain was safe. Dodging flaming debris and crashing buildings, they flooded the streets. But the fire’s path of destruction was relentless. The flames were following the refugees to the North Side, hurtling straight toward the Chicago Waterworks.

    It was the final link in the city’s defense. Chicagoans knew that if the Waterworks burned, their city was doomed.
