Our Editor's Take

Before she started the Dark History podcast, Bailey Sarian conquered YouTube with her show Murder, Mystery & Makeup. Each Monday, Sarian tells her millions of YouTube subscribers twisted new tales. What's so special about that? As she's spinning her macabre yarns, the tattooed chanteuse does her own makeup from scratch. It's like a goth-glam self-portrait appearing before viewers' eyes with a soundtrack of grisly narration in the background.

Now, Sarian is proving her flair for narrating death and destruction translates fine without the cosmetics. Every Wednesday, her Dark History podcast goes well beyond straight murder stories. She focuses on the histories of people, places, and things listeners never knew could be so wicked. Listeners hear about the Zoot Suit Riots of the '40s, the Tuskegee Experiment, and Prohibition. Sarian digs into the facts behind today's most polarizing topics. Nothing is off-limits, from birth control and cannabis to student loans and for-profit prisons.

Sarian creates the podcast to find out the real truth, which she suspects most listeners never heard back in history class. She says she's after “the nitty, gritty, and gruesome details of what really went on.” Listeners can rest assured that Dark History delivers. It might be the most freakishly entertaining history class ever.

122: The Dark History of Childbirth: We’ve been giving birth ALL WRONG
Hi friends, happy Wednesday! Despite what some people may say, birth is not a problem that needs solving–it's a natural journey that we just need guidance to help us get through (And of course, doctors, midwives, doulas…you get it). As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized how scary and borderline traumatizing childbirth can be. But not only that… how downright dangerous it is! So on that note, let’s get to it: the Dark History of Childbirth.

Hi friends, happy Valentine's Day! Maybe it’s all the social pressure, but personally, Valentine’s Day is not my favorite holiday. And I know I’m not alone in that. Sometimes it feels like Valentine’s Day is just one big scam. Like, why is there only *ONE DAY* to show people we love them? Where did all this pressure come from?! Well turns out, Valentine’s Day has a super surprising backstory… I appreciate you for coming by, and tune in next week for more Dark History.  Want some cool Bailey Merch?  Shop Dark History Merch: https://www.baileysarian.com _______ Visit https://www.Audible.com/DARKHISTORY or text DARKHISTORY to 500-500.

120: PROOF that the FBI targeted, tracked, and unalived Americans! | The Dark History of COINTELPRO
Hi friends, happy Thursday Welcome to the Dark History podcast. It’s no secret that the FBI has had a bad reputation for spying, sleuthing, and watchlists. But where did it all begin? At some point, the FBI went from just keeping an eye on people to actively trying to ELIMINATE them. They had their sights set on an up-and-coming inspirational leader from within a growing American movement, and they would do whatever it took to take them down. Today, we’re taking a deep dive into the dark waters of… COINTELPRO.  I appreciate you for coming by, and tune in next week for more Dark History.  Want some cool Bailey Merch?  Shop Dark History Merch: https://www.baileysarian.com _______ We have a special deal for our audience: Get your first visit for only five dollars at https://www.Apostrophe.com/DARKHISTORY when you use our code: DARKHISTORY.

119: The Petty Creep who led the FBI | The Dark History of J. Edgar Hoover
Hi friends, happy Wednesday! Welcome to the Dark History podcast. There’s always all this talk about who REALLY has the power in America. So I did a little digging, and discovered a not-so-great guy named J. Edgar Hoover–made famous for his 48-year racist reign over the FBI. And just as we thought, the guys pulling the strings ARE, in fact, also confiscating our nudes! Go figure. Between all the spying, lying, and legal murder of a beloved civil rights leader, J. Edgar Hoover would change America’s relationship to our governing powers–forever. appreciate you for coming by, and tune in next week for more Dark History.  _______ You can find the Dark History podcast on Apple, Spotify, wherever you listen to your podcasts, and every Thursday here on my YouTube for the visual side of things.  Apple Podcast- https://www.apple.co/darkhistory Dark History Merch-  https://www.baileysarian.com _______ FOLLOW ME AROUND   Tik Tok: https://bit.ly/3e3jL9v Instagram: http://bit.ly/2nbO4PR Facebook: http://bit.ly/2mdZtK6 Twitter: http://bit.ly/2yT4BLV Pinterest: http://bit.ly/2mVpXnY Youtube: http://bit.ly/1HGw3Og _______ We have a special deal for our audience: Get your first visit for only five dollars at https://www.apostrophe.com/DARKHISTORY when you use our code: DARKHISTORY.
