More good news arrives when a fiery (but controversial) activist joins the strike’s leadership team and a major religious group rallies behind the cause. Meanwhile, Oscar Elsas launches a counter-strike, marshaling a secret coalition of mill owners, an army of undercover informants, and a calamitous raid of the mill village.

    E17: Prosecuted or Persecuted?

    A horse slasher, a Gospel choir, motorcycle races, and whiskey gangs made the summer of 1913 one to remember in Atlanta. But it was the trial of Leo Frank that really had the town buzzing. By late August, the two dueling legal teams wrap up their closing arguments, and then—a verdict.

Very engaging

I grew up in the South and studied southern history in college. Never had I heard any of these 4 main thread stories before. Host did an excellent job weaving in the stories with contemporary social mindset and views of the late 1800’s/early 1900’s south. Well done, BT.

10/10 would recommend

I started and finished this podcast in a week during my driving job. It’s very eye opening, historical and entertaining all wrapped into one podcast!

Concerned...

Ok, BT. I really wanted to like this. And clearly a lot of people do and that’s wonderful. I’m struggling to see the connection between Will and the ripper. It feels a bit far-fetched. My recommendation, stick to writing and allow someone else to perform/read your script. I agree with some of the other folks that I think this had great potential. But whoa. It’s a lot of content and needed some editing.
