The Agitators: The Story of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass

The Agitators tells of the enduring but tempestuous friendship of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass. Great allies? Yes. And at times, great adversaries. Young abolitionists when they met in Rochester, New York in the 1840s, they were full of hope and a common purpose. As they grew to become the cultural icons we know today, their movements collided and their friendship was severely tested. Follow these brilliant, flawed, and rebellious activists with host Ashley C. Ford. Their message still matters.

This six-part podcast is based on the play The Agitators; playwright Mat Smart used historical documents to imagine Susan and Frederick’s conversations. The Agitators is brought to listeners by the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission, the National Park Service, and PRX.

Arcane: The History of Magic

Arcane: The History of Magic (premiering October 7th) releases new episodes on the first and third Wednesday of each month, weekly in October. Arcane is aimed at anyone who is interested in magic, history, or fantasy. Each episode delves into the theory and practice of historical magic. While this subject is often dark and unusual, it is equally intriguing and wondrous. Whether sharing stories about magic in history, debunking modern misconceptions about it, or tracing the historical roots of magic's modern representations in fantasy and popular culture, Arcane will show that (far from a niche subject) magic was thoroughly interwoven into the lives of people throughout history. From Greco-Egyptian magician-priests to medieval Christian necromancers, from Arabic alchemists to early modern cunning men & wise women, our history is filled with people who practiced magic - and even non-practitioners understood it to be as real and universal as the internet is today.

Hauntings in the Piedmont

Hauntings in the Piedmont is FOX8's podcast detailing tales of haunts in North Carolina's Piedmont Triad. From city employees experiencing what they describe as the "freakiest thing" they've ever seen, to spirits which seem to continue to make their presence known and a haunted bridge known nationwide, we talked with people who claim to have had firsthand supernatural experiences, as well as those who say they've solved decades-long mysteries. An idea which was originally intended to be a simple miniseries for television, this blossomed into a podcast simply based on the passionate storytellers you'll be introduced to. With minimal editing, these stories are told in their own words and largely uninterrupted, just in time for Halloween.
