Strange Country

Sometimes you need to have a glass of wine, cuppa whatever and listen to a good old weird story. Musical score Resting Place by A Cast of Thousands.

Jan 26, 2023

Welcome back, readers! Where the hell have you been? This episode--249, if you are counting—Kelly and Beth explore the side of Henry Ford that weirdly gets left out of his story. Ford, the innovator and 20th-century Elon Musk, is also Henry Ford the antisemite. He didn’t try to hide it, and neither are we. Welcome back to the podcast that reminds you ‘merica is strange, and women take up half the world but are still ignored, as are all the people who aren’t rich. Thanks for listening; it is an act of love.

Theme music: Big White Lie by A Cast of Thousands
