Episode 6: Ohio v. the Patriarchy (Madeline Pollard) Alex sits down with author Patricia Miller to discuss her hit new book, Bringing Down the Colonel. Miller’s novel tells the story of a sex scandal involving a young Cincinnati college student, Madeline Pollard, and a powerful Congressman, William Breckinridge that would grip the nation’s attention in the spring of 1894.  The landmark case of Pollard v. Breckinridge is analyzed for its groundbreaking verdict and how this story still resonates today in the midst of the #MeToo Movement.  We strongly encourage you to purchase Bringing Down the Colonel: A Sex Scandal of the Gilded Age and the Powerless Woman Who Took on Washington.
