Episode 92: Dementia Americana

This episode picks up where Episode 91 left off. We suggest you listen to them in order.

The early 20th century's biggest murder trial, and a particular brand of "madness."

Visit thisiscriminal.com to see rare photographs from Harry Thaw's trial. Cameras were not allowed in the courtroom, but Boston Globe photographer E.E. Bond snuck in a special camera, hidden in his vest and operated with a watch chain. Thanks to our friends at the Boston Public Library for allowing us to share them.

For more information, check out Paula Uruburu’s book, American Eve.
