THIS WEEK’S PODCAST TRANSCRIPT: 1922: Flappers in the newspapers
May 19, 1922

I did know that all sorts of great Prohibition and gangster stuff must have gone on, though, so I started leafing through a couple of 1922 editions of the Chronicle looking for stories.
And was immediately distracted by the flappers.
You know, flappers.
