Episode 15 - DB Cooper

December 21, 2020

On November 24, 1971, a man who identified himself as Dan Cooper bought a one-way ticket from Portland to Seattle on Northwest Orient Airlines flight #305. He paid for his ticket in cash and made his way to seat 18C. 

 

Shortly after take-off, he summoned one of the flight attendants, Florence Schaffner, to his seat. He handed her a piece of paper. The flight attendant, believing it to be a phone number or a pick-up line, slid the note into her pocket. But the man leaned forward. “Miss,” he said. “You’d better look at that note. I have a bomb.”

Episode 10 - The Shining Hotel

October 6, 2020

In October 1974, ascendant horror writer Stephen King and his wife spent a night in a cavernous old hotel at the foot of the Colorado Rockies. With the winter barrage of snow and cold looming, the hotel was about to close for the season, leaving King and his wife as its sole guests. After eating in a grand yet empty dining room — with the chairs up on every table except his — and walking through the endless empty hallways, a new novel began to take shape in King’s mind. ⁠

Episode 9 - The Death Of Jimi Hendrix

Episode 9 - The Death Of Jimi Hendrix

September 18, 2020

On the morning of September 18, 1970, paramedics arrived at the Samarkand Hotel in London’s Notting Hill neighborhood to find Jimi Hendrix covered in vomit and unresponsive. The apartment door was wide open and nobody else was there. 

They rushed Hendrix to St. Mary Abbot’s hospital where Dr. Martin Seifert tried and failed to revive him. According to Seifert, the guitarist’s body was already cold and blue when he got to the hospital and he called the attempt to resuscitate him “merely a formality.” 

Jimi Hendrix was pronounced dead at 12:45 p.m. He was just 27 years old. The autopsy listed his cause of death as asphyxiation, and his death was presumed to be accidental. But other theories have emerged in the 50 years since that fateful day, including suicide and even murder.

Episode 8 - Ida B. Wells

August 26, 2020

On August 18, 1920, the ratification of the 19th Amendment granted American women the right to vote after a century-long struggle. But the win was bittersweet as not all women were now welcome at the polls. Women of color had endured racism within the women’s suffrage movement from the start, at times being asked to start their own organizations or to hold their own separate demonstrations. Among those activists was Ida B. Wells-Barnett, a sharp and talented Black journalist, teacher, and demonstrator who spoke out extensively against both sexism and racism. This is her story.
