How to Try to Get Away with Murder
This episode comes with a content warning!
This section of “An American Tragedy” (and our podcast discussion) deals with unprotected sex and the search for abortion after unplanned pregnancy in the 1920s. There is also discussion of a pre-planned murder. So if that isn’t something that would be healthy for you to listen to, I suggest skipping this episode – and probably this book.
“An American Tragedy,” by Theodore Dreiser
