Salt Lake City: Birthplace of The New Yorker magazine and Sherlock Holmes?

Today on the show, guest host Roger McDonough takes a look at some surprising Salt Lake City history. In particular, the strange tale of an early 20th century brothel, and how The New Yorker magazine can trace its origins to the Utah capital. And, bizarrely, how those two things are tied together. Featuring audio producer and author Scott Carrier, Western historian Will Bagley, Sherlockian Michael Homer, and Catalyst Magazine Editor Greta deJong.

New Yorker magazine founder Harold Ross, who began as a “cub” reporter in SLC.
