Description

Back in 1917 radium was all the rage. The fact that it glowed made people believe it was healthy and important, so they included it in things like toothpaste, cosmetics, even water. The Radium Girls, factory workers who used radium-laced paints to detail watch faces, were among the first to indicate that it may not be as safe as we imagined. Charlie McElroy is here to tell us about their fight for workplace safety.

This was such a fun episode... I do have one complaint though- no way Charlie is only 7! She speaks more eloquently than my 18 yr old son!... all jokes aside, excellent work Charlie!! I'd love to see you back in the future.

ok this is my favorite one, Charlie is the best! And being honest and still deferring the questions about syphilis was hilarious.
