Ep. 94 - Temperance (The Women of Prohibition in Detroit)

On this week's Detroit Strange, Jess and Alex talk summertime, and the livings easy..then scramble to find a thesaurus and round things out by talking about Alex's incoming newest family member (hint it has four legs and he's been trying to adopt one for months), before Alex gets into some WAP (Wet ass prohibition). Who was the first to get charged for bootlegging in the city? Who were the ladies who helped keep Detroit from being dry during prohibition? How much of an effect did they have? All this and more on this week's episode!
