Show Notes

Content warning: anti-black racism, anti-asian racism, mentions of suicide, trauma, death

On April 10th, 1912, one of the largest luxury liners ever built departed on its maiden voyage across the Atlantic Ocean. Just 3 days later, more than 1500 of the 2,200 people aboard would be dead, many lost in the ocean forever. You guessed it. This episode is all about the Titanic. Here, we discuss how classism, patriarchal hubris, and white supremacy resulted in the avoidable massive tragedy. Join us for another cocktail for disaster, as we take you on the journey of this fated ship, its aftermath and untold stories in between.
