Episode 25: The Cave

Over the centuries, all sorts of methods have been used to govern people. And while some have been just and humane — such as most modern legal systems — others have been more unusual. Social fear, religious tyranny, and military might. However, few examples stand out as much as the events that took place over a century ago on a small island off the coast of Chile.

Researched, written, and produced by Aaron Mahnke. Soundtrack playlist is available here.
