Digging Into Damnation

"Set in 1931 amidst the American labor wars of the Great Depression, Damnation follows Seth Davenport, a man with a violent past who poses as a preacher as he rallies townsfolk to stand up against greedy industrialists and the corruption of the local bank, sheriff's department, and newspaper. He is opposed by Creeley Turner, an ex-con who works for the Pinkerton Detective Agency and has been hired by a rich industrialist to stop Davenport's strike."

In this podcast, I will explore and analyze the incredible television series Damnation (available now on Netflix) episode by episode.  I will explore the revolutionary history behind the show's concept, including the Farmer's Holiday Association which the events in the show are based off of.  I will relate the organizing principles and struggles that happen to the characters in the show to the real life struggles faced both in the 20th century and today.  I will try to find out what Damnation has to tell us about the past, the present, ourselves, and what kind of future may or may not be possible.
