This week we welcome comedian and noted Italian Mike Recine to discuss an extremely local story to Scott: the trial and execution of Italian immigrant anarchists Sacco and Vanzetti for a string of robberies and a double murder in Southeastern Massachusetts in 1920. We also discuss the tempestuous political situation brought on by the presence of immigrants in the United States during and after WW1 and in context with the growing anarchist and labor movements.
