We encourage you to tune in to our newest program, Amazing Tales from Off and On Connecticut's Beaten Path, which airs Sunday afternoons at 4:30 right after the Opera.
Amazing Tales uses a story-telling format to focus on historically significant people, places, and events from Connecticut’s past. Host Mike Allen interviews subject matter experts on a variety of historical topics.
He specializes in bringing local history to life, by using his journalism and story-telling skills with podcasting and public speaking. For 15 years, Mike worked as a radio journalist, both at NPR's Boston affiliate WBUR and as News Director at i-95 (WRKI-FM) in western Connecticut. He subsequently worked in government and corporate before retiring and starting his podcast. As a resident of Connecticut for more than 50 years, Mike also makes public appearances throughout the state, speaking on topics of local history.
The Mad Hatters and Their Major US Supreme Court Case
It was one of the most explosive labor issues of the early 1900s – and it involved the United Hatters Union.

Were unions monopolizing workers – and, could they therefore be sued under the new Sherman Anti-Trust Act? The case went all the way to the US Supreme Court. Listen along with Danbury historian Bill Devlin to learn the background and outcome of this fascinating case.
