W+ Exclusive: The Manson Murders | Bad Times in the Summer of Love
2022/06/20
On March 21st, 1967, prisoner number 3845 was released back into the general population. He was a 32-year-old career criminal named Charles Manson. Just months later, Manson found himself in San Francisco at the height of the hippie era, the so-called “Summer of Love.” There, he began recruiting a cadre of young, impressionable, mostly female followers, who came to believe their leader was the second coming of Jesus. They would do anything Manson told them to. At first, that just meant supporting his dreams of becoming a famous musician. But soon, Manson’s ambitions would take a darker turn.

W+ Exclusive: The Manson Murders | Helter Skelter
2022/06/27
In the summer of 1969, Charles Manson’s predictions of a coming race war called Helter Skelter still had not come to pass. Manson’s followers, the Family, were getting impatient – and Manson was growing desperate to keep them under his control. Finally, he decided to jump-start Helter Skelter himself, orchestrating a series of brutal murders that would baffle authories and shock the nation.

Encore: The Age of Jackson | Washington Burns
2022/06/08
In 1814, British troops burned down the White House. That fire would be extinguished, and the Executive Mansion would be rebuilt. But another fire smoldered on – a fire that would eventually consume the United States. This is Antebellum America: the decades leading up to the Civil War. This was America’s adolescence. The young nation was growing at tremendous speed, forcing its leaders to address fundamental questions about their country’s identity and values. Could the individual states put aside their differences to remain united? And could this new country live up to its lofty ideals, especially when it came to issues like slavery or the treatment of Native Americans? One leader shaped this era more than any other: America’s reluctant seventh president, Andrew Jackson. Listen ad free with Wondery+.

Encore: The Age of Jackson | Good Feelings
2022/06/15
In the summer of 1817, President James Monroe toured the country in an effort to unify the ever-growing United States. His optimistic presidency ushered in what became known as “The Era of Good Feelings.” But in reality, it was barely an era at all. The facade of political unity had already begun to crack by 1819, when Monroe faced his first serious political crisis: the Missouri Controversy, which brought the issue of slavery into the national spotlight.

Encore: The Age of Jackson | Great White Father

This episode comes out for free on 06/29, and is available early and ad-free for Wondery+ subscribers. Sign up on wonderyplus.com/applepodcasts and stay up-to-date on the latest new podcasts and more from Wondery. During his military career, Andrew Jackson won several ruthless victories over indigenous people. After becoming president in 1829, he waged political war against them, too. Jackson championed “Indian removal” – the forced displacement of Native Americans to make way for white settlers. And none would feel the brunt of Jackson’s policies more than the groups known as the “Five Civilized Tribes” – the Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, Chickasaw, and Seminole.

The Great Mississippi Flood | When the Levee Breaks
2022/05/11
In the winter and spring of 1927, record-setting rain fell across the central United States. The Mississippi River swelled to capacity, and by April, the water breached major levees. It was the start of the most catastrophic river flood in American history. When the flood threatened the town of Greenville in the Mississippi Delta, white plantation owners pulled tens of thousands of Black workers from the cotton fields and sent them to the river. An army of hundreds of men worked day and night, piling sandbags to battle the raging waters. But soon, despite their efforts, the Great Mississippi Flood would unleash destruction on the Delta.

The Great Mississippi Flood | Dirty Water
2022/05/18
Early in the morning on April 22nd, 1927, flood waters from a break in the Mound Landing levee entered the town of Greenville, Mississippi. Within hours, the town was submerged in 10 feet of water. Thousands of residents fought to reach higher ground, desperately clinging to tree tops and floating houses. The flood inundated 27,000 square miles in seven states. Soon, President Calvin Coolidge appointed Commerce Secretary Herbert Hoover to manage relief efforts for the Red Cross. But Hoover’s decision to decentralize relief would have unintended consequences – especially in towns like Greenville, where thousands of Black sharecroppers were virtual prisoners, detained in brutally policed refugee camps.

The Great Mississippi Flood | Master of Emergencies
2022/05/25
Herbert Hoover’s management of the flood relief garnered widespread praise and put him in position to secure the Republican nomination for President. But the African-American press told a different story, one of rampant racial abuse in Red Cross camps throughout the flood zone. In Greenville, Mississippi, the exploitation of Black workers was especially persistent. In the summer, tensions rose to new heights, and soon, a fatal shooting would tear the battered town apart.

The Great Mississippi Flood | Media Storm
2022/06/01
In 1927, a slow-moving catastrophe like the Great Mississippi Flood was perfect material for a relatively new medium: radio. Over the airwaves, the flood became the first natural disaster that Americans could follow almost in real time, day by day, as the rising river waters swept away one town after another. In this episode, Lindsay talks with Susan Scott Parrish, author of The Flood Year 1927: A Cultural History, about the ways Americans far from the Mississippi River experienced the disaster in newspapers, on the radio, and in popular culture. They'll also discuss how entertainers of the time rallied the public to raise funds for recovery, while federal relief efforts only enforced existing socioeconomic and racial divides in the South.

Lewis and Clark | Into the Wild
2022/04/13
In 1803, Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark began a westward journey that would transform America. Their mission was to head up the Missouri River and find a route through the uncharted west to the Pacific Ocean. The journey was full of risk. But no danger loomed larger in their minds than the Sioux – the powerful Native American confederacy of the plains. And it wouldn't be long before the two crossed paths. Listen ad free with Wondery+.
