Feed Hack: Killing Nostalgia Podcast- INJUSTICE: Blackwell's Island Asylum
45:07This week, Maggie from Feminist History joins Jasmin as they discuss Blackwell's Lunatic Asylum's history and horrors. Built in the early 19th century, the asylum was initially only meant to house 250 people. It quickly became overcrowded, and lack of funding combined with a host of bad ideas lead to egregious human rights violations. The stories that made it out of the asylum have served as the inspiration for countless pop culture pieces over the last century, including AHS: Asylum.

Minisode 1: Nellie Bly and Love O' Mike
8:14In Feminist History's first minisode, Maggie tells the wild story of a mystery baby left in Grand Central Station in NYC in December 1919. At the time, Nellie Bly was writing a column for the NY Evening Journal in which she detailed her activities as an unofficial social worker placing needy babies in affluent homes. The story of Love O' Mike proved to be one of the most sensational of her career.
