Podcast 56 - Illegal Alcohol, Part 2 - Bootlegging (1st half, FREE)

July 18, 2018

Gena and Jean explore some of the effects of prohibition on ancestral lives. Besides sharing a couple of family stories, they discuss the consequences of prohibition on both crime and lifestyle. The second half, accessed with a Premium subscription, covers some of the terminology of the activities associated with illegal alcohol during the early 1900s. (Apologies for some drops in the dialogue.)

The information cited comes from a few specific websites which are clearly identified on the blogpost associated with this podcast (see <> for 18 July 2018).

The photograph displayed above comes from the Library of Congress and shows the objection of some to the 18th Amendment, taken by Harris & Ewing, photographers, 1931.
