EPISODE 11: Hrrr You Up

Kate and Jen bring you a smorgasbord of history this week, from their Selective Memories about Ron Stallworth, the black officer who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan and duped David Duke, to the history of Prohibition and organized crime. Jen talks about the tragically ironic death of the owner of the Segway brand, which takes Kate on a long tangent about the ridiculous things the US has patented since 1790. Kate then discusses the Dancing Plague of 1518, which is exactly what it sounds like.
