Episode 52: The Beslan school hostage crisis
2 days ago
On September 1, 2004, hundreds of students of all ages arrived with their families at School No. 1 in Beslan, North Ossetia-Alania, Russia for the start of the school year. The first day of school was a celebration punctuated with music, poems, and videos. But this year would be different. This year's Day of Knowledge festivities, however, wouldn't end in the first ringing of the school bell, but with gunshots.

My new favorite podcast!
I stumbled upon this podcast while doing researching for a project and instantly fell in love. Well researched and delivered in a very entertaining way. I hope Jennifer Matarese keeps this going for a very long time!
