129: Dark History: How a Shakespeare Play Caused New York's Deadliest Riot
Not Explicit | 49 min
Description
Hi friends, happy Wednesday! Did you know one of America’s deadliest riots actually started inside a theater in New York. But instead of a drunk senator causing the chaos--I'm looking at you, Lauren Boebert--it was caused by two actors, with decades of beef between them. And this beef turned into blood in the streets...and I *NEVER* hear anyone talking about it!

128: The Dark History of The Kennedys: America's Cursed Royal Family
Not Explicit | 59 min
Description
Hi friends, happy Wednesday! The story of the Kennedy’s has been so romanticized by the media over the years. People are *obsessed* with them. I personally have never understood it, because I just assumed they were like an old money family that wiggled their way into politics and partied their life away because they could. But no… they were so much more than that.

127: The Dark History of Pigeons: Rats With Wings or Unknown Heroes?
Not Explicit | 44 min
Description
Hi friends, happy Wednesday! Never in history has there been a more unappreciated animal than the pigeon. Most people think they are just disease infected rats with wings. Right? But actually, pigeons were our companions for centuries. All they wanted to do was help us send our silly little messages and stop wars, and what did they get in return?

126: Dark History: Wait... WHO'S paying for the Olympics?
Not Explicit | 66 min
Description
Hi friends, happy Wednesday! Now, before the Olympics were a thing, it was really just a bunch of Greek competitions about testing physical limits. They had no fancy ass equipment or Nike sponsorships. But since then, a lot of people have been abused, and  cities have been destroyed. And apparently, people like you and I pay for the Olympics to exist!? Are they even uniting and inspiring us? And with such a hefty price tag, are they even worth it?

125: Dark History: Thousands of Women Died in These Secret Asylums
Not Explicit | 53 min
Description
Hi friends, happy almost St. Patty’s Day! I’ll be honest with you… it’s hard to shock me anymore. So when I tell you that this story that I found *SHOOK ME* to my core… you know it’s for real. While I was looking into lesser-known Irish history, I kept reading about these things called the Magdalene Laundries. And while something like “laundry” seems innocent enough, this story is anything but that. These Catholic Church corruption-founded facilities destroyed the lives of countless women, and justice has yet to be served–even to this day.

Hi friends, happy Wednesday!
