I wanted to share a “lighter” true crime podcast to Usher in the summer, so take a cheeky peek inside a world of bowties, muscles, and murder!

Historian Natalia Petrzela tells the story of Chippendales’ founder Somen (Steve) Banerjee, an Indian immigrant/former janitor, and his desperate attempts to control his American dream.

Strengths:

-Overview of Chippendales’ history and the story of its founder

-Exposes Chippendales' racist past

-Fun clips of female patrons


Weaknesses:

-The interviews should be taken with a grain a salt as it is largely people reliving their glory days

-The narration can be jarring at times
