A Line in the Sand (Radio/Audio Broadcast or Recording)
Title: A Line in the Sand
Writer: Noel Black
Writer: Tyler Hill
Producer: Noel Black
Producer: Tyler Hill
Abstract: President Donald J. Trump’s promise to build a border wall between the US and Mexico and his move to deport undocumented immigrants shows what a powerful hold immigration has on the American political imagination. It isn't the first time a politician promised to build a wall against immigrants. In 1936, Colorado Governor "Big Ed" Johnson declared martial law as he attempted to close the state's border with New Mexico to prevent "immigrants" from coming to Colorado. We'll explore that historical episode and how it worked out.

Back Allies and Backpages (Radio/Audio Broadcast or Recording)
Title: Back Allies and Backpages
Writer: Noel Black
Writer: Tyler Hill
Producer: Noel Black
Producer: Tyler Hill
Abstract: In late 1894, three sex workers were found strangled in their homes on Denver’s notorious Market Street: Lena Tapper, Marie Contassoit, and Kiku Oyama. As we investigate the mystery of their deaths, we explore how the past is echoed in the lives of sex workers today. Sex work - stigmatized and romanticized in equal measures throughout history - has always been among the rare industries where women have had the potential to make more money than men, yet they’ve seldom been able to reap the financial benefits of this disparity because of the physical and moral risks.

Snake, Rattle, and Roll (Radio/Audio Broadcast or Recording)
Title: Snake, Rattle, and Roll
Writer: Noel Black
Writer: Tyler Hill
Producer: Noel Black
Producer: Tyler Hill
Abstract: Katherine McHale Slaughterback - aka Rattlesnake Kate - claimed to have killed over a hundred rattlesnakes outside Greeley, Colorado in a single day in 1925, and then fashioned a flapper dress from their skins. Though she went on to become a legend - a kind of “feminist Paul Bunyan” for Colorado - we’ll look at the real life ways she broke down gender roles as a woman in the west. To help tell this story, we talked with Neyla Pekarek, a member of the Colorado band The Lumineers, who recently wrote a folk opera about Rattlesnake Kate.

Tuned In Dropouts (Radio/Audio Broadcast or Recording)
Title: Tuned In Dropouts
Writer: Noel Black
Writer: Tyler Hill
Producer: Noel Black
Producer: Tyler Hill
Abstract: In this time of the #metoo movement, we look back at the so-called "Naropa Poetry Wars" - a sex scandal at the Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado involving Chogyam Trungpa, the poet Allen Ginsberg's spiritual teacher, and the frenzy of gossip, fingerpointing, and betrayal that divided the community after Trungpa was accused of inapprorpiate sexual behavior. This episode focuses on the experiences of women in the 1970’s, how freedom doesn’t always mean freedom for everyone, and how poets felt the need to look the other way on Trungpa’s sexual misconduct in order to maintain loyalty to the vision of the Institute.

A Tale of Two Communes (Radio/Audio Broadcast or Recording)
Title: A Tale of Two Communes
Writer: Noel Black
Writer: Tyler Hill
Producer: Noel Black
Producer: Tyler Hill
Abstract: Drop City in Southern Colorado, one of the first communal living experiments of the twentieth century, launched the modern hippie commune movement and helped redefine notions of freedom and community for an entire generation. While Drop City failed shortly after its creation, it spawned a new commune that survives to this day -- Libre. Interweaving the stories of these two communes seeking freedom and opportunity in the West with interviews of historians and artists we explore the counterculture movement of the 1960s.

Going Back to Trinidad (Radio/Audio Broadcast or Recording)
Title: Going Back to Trinidad
Writer: Noel Black
Writer: Tyler Hill
Producer: Noel Black
Producer: Tyler Hill
Abstract: In 1969, a trans woman asked Dr. Stanley Biber in the small Southern Colorado town of Trinidad if he’d be willing to perform sex reassignment / gender confirmation surgery. He kept his first few surgeries secret, out of fear of repercussions from the Catholic Nuns who ran his clinic. But eventually word got out and the community rallied around Biber and his patients. In this episode, we explore how Trinidad eventually became known as “The Sex Change Capital of the World.”

Writer: Noel Black
Writer: Tyler Hill
Producer: Noel Black
Producer: Tyler Hill
Abstract: Our hosts join with oral historian Jose Ortega from History Colorado’s El Pueblo Museum to tell the story of Juan Federico “Freddie Freak” Arguello Miguel Trujillo, a young man from Southern Colorado whose identity and heritage was stripped from him as a child by nuns who forced him to Anglicize his name and give up his language. Juan Federico’s story of personal and cultural rediscovery leads us through the history of El Movimiento, the Chicano Movement.
