Join us as we host two journalists who have delved deep into hidden subcultures. In Leaving Mundania, the editor of Fringe literary journal Lizzie Stark hacks her way into the magical realm of live-action role-playing, where normal people shed their business suits to don armor and robes for extravagant, gigantic games of make-believe. In The Cornbread Mafia, journalist James Higdon exposes the legacy and legal battles surrounding the largest homegrown marijuana syndicate in American history. With unprecedented access into this secretive group, Higdon examines the hidden side of the war on drugs.
