The Room Where It Happened

The Room Where It Happened

The Room Where It Happened takes its name from a song in the smash musical "Hamilton", The podcast will explore historical events using the "hook" of a particular location (i.e. "the room", sometimes actual and sometimes metaphorical) associated with the event. Sometimes the "room" has a closed door and we might have to speculate on what occurred--like the song from Hamilton. Other times the room might be crowded and filled with witnesses. Every time we will seek to bring something new to looking at the event--no matter how well known or obscure.

      The Piketon Massacre

      The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
