The Dark Side to the Golden Age of Hollywood
Hollywood, the place where dreams come true. But in reality, Hollywood, and especially during the “Golden Age” was a place of nightmares. Horrible treatment of actors and actresses, drug addiction, cover ups, forced abortions, eating disorders, death. You name it, and it was happening behind the scenes. Today we dive into the dark side of the glitz and glam of the movie industry and talk about it’s dark and seedy past.

Women Were Poisoned by Their Job for Years: The Radium Girls
When Radium popped on to the scene in the early 1900s, it was called “liquid sunshine” and a “mythological superbeing.” Why? Because it was incredibly powerful and literally glowed. But then a few companies had the bright idea to start making watches with it. Today, Bailey tells the tale of the Radium Girls who were exposed to the radioactive chemical, in horrible working conditions, and lost their lives because of it.

How Jazz Almost Wasn’t a Thing: The Dark History of Jazz
In the late 1800s, something really cool was happening down in New Orleans. A melting pot of cultures was blending to form a new style of music. These incredible sounds inspired a music revolution that swept the nation almost overnight. People LOVED Jazz. But there were some people who decided jazz was the devil’s music. Today, Bailey tells the shocking story of how the Federal Government tied Jazz to “immoral” behavior and aimed to take down its biggest star: Billie Holiday.

Before COVID, there was Bubonic Plague in San Fran
121 years before COVID showed up, the U.S. nearly descended into chaos when the Bubonic Plague arrived in San Fran. The Black Death. When it began spreading in the city, politicians went to war with public health officials, claiming everything was blown out of proportion, even calling it a “Plague Fake.” Oy. Today, Bailey gives you yet another dose of how dark history tends to repeat itself.
