We've got stories of two cities; one that turned into a police state and one that literally sank into the ocean. Emily details the history of pirate haven Port Royal, how it earned it's moniker of the most "vile" city, and why it suddenly sank into the Caribbean. Then Brenton recounts the days leading to the protest of the 1968 Democratic National Convention and the ensuing media circus when Chicago tried to charge 8 protestors with intent to incite violence.
