Episode 73: Carry A. Nation (8.18.2017)

Posted on Aug 17, 2017 by in Uncategorized |


At the turn of the century, Carry Nation was “America’s foremost lady hellraiser” and “the apostle of reform violence.” In her own words, she was “a bulldog running along at the feet of Jesus, barking at what He doesn’t like.”


We liked her hatchet pins so much, we thought we’d try to make some of our own. They say “CRIMINAL” on the handle. Get yours here.


Thanks to everyone at the Kansas State Historical Society, and to Maya Goldberg-Safir.



Criminal is a proud member of Radiotopia from PRX.
