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.”

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

Cameras were not allowed in the courtroom during Harry Thaw’s trial, 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 these rare photos.
