Haunted by History: Episode 13 (Patrick Henry's wife & the Castle Bravo nuclear test)

Oct 07, 2019, 12:00 PM
Beyond Reproach gets a little spooky! We bring you two historically dark scandals for your listening pleasure. Start your Halloween season off right!. 

This episode we drink a pre-colonial crambamble also known as a Hot Ale Flip which tastes like a boozy pumpkin spice latte. Cheers y’all, to autumn!

Also discussed: Ye olde basics, milk skin, Gucci straight-dresses, spiders, mental illness, Michael Bloomberg’s shameful “spanish,” chernobyl, Ernest and Madea movies.

Stephanie’s scandal revolves around the unfortunately short life and relatively long afterlife of Sarah Shelton Henry, Patrick Henry’s wife. The basement where she was chained is site of paranormal activity. Join us for our first (though possibly last) historical political scandal ghost story! 

Tux’s scandal is a deep dive into terrifyingly reckless US military actions in the South Pacific. He explores how their overwhelming hubris and carelessness regarding nuclear testing claimed innocent lives, destroyed a culture and ultimately inspired the film monster Godzilla. Yikes!
