5 – mary grace humiston quackenbos

In this episode, we discuss Mary Grace Quackenbos Humiston, a woman whose strong sense of doing the right thing led her to a high ranking Department of Justice position and the power to shed light on labor practices that kept immigrants as would-be slaves. You’ll also hear from Lauren’s dog, Alphonse, occasionally because he’s a big baby.
