On today's podcast he shares fascinating stories and nuggets from Tacoma's history in the twentieth century. What decisions did we get right? (Like women getting the vote early). But what went wrong? This episode covers some of the hard times Tacoma went through but also the problems we brought on ourselves, especially through "the original sin of intolerance" as Michael Sullivan calls it. Discover the early characters of Tacoma's history, our competition with Seattle, and the mad dash to finish the transcontinental railroad.
