This podcast I produced in 2022 follows the story of Missouri businessman William Preston Hall. Hall was a titan of northern Missouri who made his fortune trading in horses for wars and lions, monkeys and tigers for circuses. Preston becomes one of the richest men in Missouri, calling himself the “horse king of the world.” His fashionable appearance earned him the nickname Diamond Billy, and his wandering elephants brought a sense of wonder to his neighbors in Lancaster. But Diamond Billy’s rise from rags to riches could only last for so long.
Milwaukee County Medical Examiner Brian Peterson pushed for the construction of a new medical examiner’s office in September of 2022 due in part to difficulty recruiting forensic pathologists. In this segment I produced, our show's host spoke with two experts about why there’s a shortage and what it means for the families of the deceased.
