Slow Burn

Slate Podcasts
Society & CultureHistoryDocumentary

In the early 1970s, the future of abortion in America was far from settled. Roe v. Wade would change everything, though few knew it at the time. For the seventh season of Slate’s Slow Burn, host Susan Matthews explores the path to Roe—a time when more Republicans than Democrats supported abortion rights. You’ll hear the forgotten story of the first woman ever to be convicted of manslaughter for having an abortion, the unlikely Catholic power couple who helped ignite the pro-life movement, and a rookie Supreme Court justice who got assigned the opinion of a lifetime.

  • Outstanding

    This series was extremely well-researched, and should be part of every high school history curriculum. Not only it is enlightening about trailblazing women in our history, but it also offers invaluable insights into popular culture at the time and the operations of the Supreme Court. I can’t recommend this podcast highly enough. Kudos to Slate and Susan Matthews and the team. It should win an award.
