Mayhem: The 1970s You Never Knew, Episode 1Oct 09, 2023
Welcome to our new series, Mayhem: The 1970s You Never Knew. Over the next few weeks, we’ll take a journey through the Decade of Defiance, with all its scandals and secrets.
As the decade devolved into war at home and abroad, Apollo 13 flew high above earth with the hope of landing safely on the surface of the moon. But then: disaster struck, and time was on no one’s side. Meanwhile, thousands of miles below the Apollo 13 spacecraft, a nationwide uprising among college students ended in disaster at Kent State and Jackson State Universities. With special guest Apollo 13 astronaut, Fred Haise.
