Abstract

Muddied Water is a podcast about the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike that explores our desire to find heroes in an often unclear past. In a "fight for fair" that brought strikers out in the thousands, you'll meet characters like Helen Armstrong and AJ Andrews, but if you think you know on which side of history they fall, think again. Winnipeg in 1919 is a city divided but when the two sides collide it's difficult to know who's right and who's wrong, and if faced with similar conditions if we'd make the same choices today. --Trailer
