Hosts Kelly Burdick and Christina Knott return to the pages of history for stories that still matter today.

Mar 15, 2020

Chris Brock takes the lead in this interview with Cheri L. Farnsworth, author of a multitude of books about Northern New York history, about her newest book: "Historic North Country Disasters."

In it, she compiles both the man-made and natural disasters that shocked the North Country in the hundred years between 1850 and 1950.

Why is she drawn to dark topics? What did she learn about life a hundred years ago? What is her process of writing? Listen in as she tells us.


Episode is edited by Christina Knott. Intro music is "Nobody Calls It San Fran" by Coyote Hearing. Outro music is "The Papergirl" by The Whole Other. Browse our new merch at Society 6.
