008 - Of Haymakers & Handwashers

This labor day episode takes us from the labor movement to the labor and delivery room. Nat [purposely] talks about Chicago history and tells us about the Haymarket Affair and Lucy Parsons. Cass and Madeline Brès prove that a ladies place is in the gallery. We continue to mispronounce key things.
