In this episode we sit down with historian Mark Iverson of Idahistory. In this first conversation we decided not to delve deep into specific history, but more so discuss WHY history. The importance of learning the lessons of humanity’s past and the dangers of marginalizing others. Our discussion touches on trends of migration in America and the search for the American dream. We discuss how knowing history’s patterns and listening for both sides can bring us a better understanding in current situations. And how many of these universal trends can be found right here in Idaho. We sit down together to set a foundation for future conversations about Idaho history. And how we can use those lessons as tools moving forward.

Like crime podcasts? Interested in Idaho history? Fascinated (like the rest of us) in the Old Idaho Penitentiary? In this episode we have a conversation with Skye and Anthony of the Behind Gray Walls Podcast. These local historians work in the historic Old Idaho Penitentiary and specialize in stories of some of the most infamous prisoners who resided there. They regale us with a few of their favorite stories, along with some of the creepy paranormal experiences there.
We also talk about the fine line between civilian and prisoner, and the danger of labeling a person for a single mistake.
These historians are dedicating their days to making sure the entire story of the individuals who spent time in the penitentiary are told.
It’s a interesting and fun listen to be sure.
