In part 2 of our look at the Tulsa Massacre of 1921, the story of the massacre itself, how it began, and what happened in the days and weeks following. What became of Greenwood and its residents?
The lies, the corruption and injustice, the struggle to rebuild, and the impossible job trying to take account of it all. Almost a century later, what does it all mean? What is Greenwood today? And what patterns can we see from Tulsa, through the decades, and into today?
A jam packed episode, and the longest ever from Assorted Goods.
Almost 99 years ago, 35 blocks of an all-black neighborhood in a major American city was burned to the ground. But for all the years since, the Tulsa Massacre of 1921 has been mostly forgotten. How did the worst incident of racial violence in American history get ignored? How did it even happen to begin with?
In part 1, a look at the story of the city of Tulsa, the state of Oklahoma, and the mixture of events that led to the riot in 1921. Lies, racism, corrupt police, the power of media, and how the past is never easily forgotten.

Late Addition by Dan:
"1917" - SPOILER ALERT!
All three of us liked it and you should see it, but if you plan to see it, you should turn off the show as soon as we bring up the movie.
We sound really smart, but it's almost certain we aren't nearly as smart as we sound.
Again, you REALLY should listen to "Assorted Goods" with Dan Felton.P.S. Jeff hates "Game of Thrones." Please @ him. Please.The non-American, non-military Millenial schools the two American, veteran Gen Xers.
Back once again with the podcastin' goodness. Taking a look at the alliance formed between the two leading producers of the cocoa bean, and what it means for your chocolatey treats. Then, the WNBA has given their players a big raise, but how big of a step forward is it for the league?
In the second half of the show, Dan tries to understand a shady trend that's popular among large companies, are the rich getting richer once again? And finally, looking at the progress being made with the gene editing tool known as CRISPR. Controversy? Or the start of a new age of treatments?
All that jam packed into this little pod...
Dan tries to figure out what the "gig economy" is and what is means for the current landscape of work. Then, everyone loves a good Netflix binge, but is there a side-effect to all these data demands?
The second half of the show includes a look at cannabis in Canada, one year later. And finally, how a small American college improved their school by adding a football team, while another, found a different kind of success by dropping the sport.
And a small note about the Australian brushfires.
