    Women's Suffrage

    Women's Suffrage

    With Election Day under a month away, and the recent 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, there is no better time to discover the history of women's suffrage in Atlanta. Things went a little differently down South, and Georgia women did not vote until 1922, two years after the constitutional amendment. We'll talk about why, and the groups that fought for the women's vote and those that fought against it.

    Candler Mansions

    Candler Mansions

    The Candler name is all across Atlanta, even when not expressly spelled out, there are many places with Candler connections you may have never realized. The family’s generational wealth allowed Asa’s children to build their own respective mansions, and each is still around today - some public and some private. This week, we’re talking about all the remaining Candler homes in Atlanta, their origin stories, dramatic tales and how you can see them.

Best podcast ever

Finally discovering the city I’ve lived in for 15 years! If you want to learn the history of Atlanta there is no better way. Me and my wife listen to an episode and then go walk around to see what we learned.
