The two segments feature David Jepsen, educator, historian, author, and film maker on his new documentary Labor Wars of the Pacific Northwest and Conor Casey, Head of the Labor Archives of Washington on the story of the Centralia Tragedy of 1919.
The regular segment, called “Learn Yourself”, features Conor Casey (Head, Labor Archives of Washington, University of Washington Libraries Special Collections) and guests being interviewed about a history topic by host Mike Dumovich with an emphasis on archival collections and secondary sources related to the topic in the hopes that it will inspire people to learn more about labor history on their own.
