From Riots and Raids to Gay Pride Parades: How Pride came to be
In 1969, the Stonewall Inn was just your typical, Mafia-backed queer bar in Greenwich Village, New York. But after yet another police raid, the LGBTQ+ community had enough and decided to fight back. Today, Bailey tells the story of how chaos in the streets of New York evolved into the colorful Pride parades we see around the world today.
Who gave the Philly Police a friggin’ BOMB?!: The 1985 MOVE Bombing
In 1985, after a chaotic shootout and an hours-long standoff, the Philadelphia Police dropped a bomb on the home of the MOVE organization, a black liberation and environmentalist group. What? Why? How? Today, Bailey is going to get into that, but just know it killed 11 people and destroyed 61 surrounding homes. It took 35 years for the city to even apologize.

Gay Conversion Therapy: Pseudo Science is Destroying Innocent Lives

The story of the first female President of the United States: Edith Wilson
A rowdy mountain girl inherits a million dollar jewelry business, drag races through the streets of Washington D.C., goes on a blind date with the President, marries him and then takes over the country after he suffers a stroke. No, this isn’t the premise of a Rom Com. Today, Bailey dishes on the true story of Edith Wilson - the unapologetic First Lady who gave Washington politicians the middle finger and did what she wanted.
MKUltra: Mind Control, Drugs and Robocats
What if we told you the Government thought LSD could be used for mind control? What if we told you they tested this on thousands of people without their knowledge? Or what if we told you the CIA was slicing open cats and putting microphones in them to create adorable little spies? You’d probably think we’re high. Nope. Just the Government. Well, today Bailey tells the story of a secret Government project called MKUltra, where they did all of this. And more.

When people think of American innovation, one name always comes up: Thomas Edison. But, just like everything else in our series, there’s a dark side to Tommy boy.

I love Bailey, I love MMM and I really wanted to like this podcast but I don't get why she does this different than MMM. I feel like she doesn't take this as serious as she does MMM. She does way too much of her quirky comments and impressions that makes this sound immature and childish. It gets very annoying and at times, unbearable to listen to. Take this podcast as serious as the YT.
AHHHH love her soooooo much !!! The pod is so interesting and it’s nice to know what actually happened in history
Content Interesting Host Not So Much
The content of the podcast is very interesting, but the host is awful. Her voice is very annoying and she lack story telling skills.
