A Sticky Situation: The Boston Molasses Flood of 1919

In 1919, a flood of Molasses devastated the North End neighborhood of Boston. In this episode we talk about the disaster in detail and even discuss some of the possible reasons for the horrible killer wave of sweet molasses. Then we chat with writer, speaker and Bostonian Amma Marfo to see if she’s heard of it!
