    There Are People in the River (re-upload)

    As we take a week off to fill the narrative coffers, let's go back over a year to our third episode. How do you prioritize tragedy? When two terrible things happen around the same time, do you mourn the loss of one person or 1,547? A sad tale of tragedy being buried below the fold, with a 3 line mention in the New York Times. This is the tale of the Sultana, the worst US maritime tragedy in history.

JESNW ,

Compelling listening!

I just binge listened all of them (up to Episode 7 currently) and find them informative, compelling and really well done. Harry Thomason is a master story-teller and has chosen interesting material to weave his magic.

Can’t wait to hear more!
