Episode 057- Horror in History

Episode 057- Horror in History02

 

History is full of real-life horror stories. 

In this episode I talk with Dr. Harold Aurand, a professor of History at Penn State University, Schuylkill Campus, about true horror stories of history.

We discuss the Great Molasses Flood in Boston, the Johnstown Flood of 1889 in Johnstown, PA, mine disasters, and some more little-known stories.  Truth is often stranger than fiction. 

I hope you enjoy the episode.
