In 1979, disco was a dominant force in American music. It took the top spots in the Billboard charts, and sold countless records. But with its culturally diverse audience, disco faced a major backlash. And that would lead to a crisis one evening in July of 1979, when a promotional event at a baseball game turned into a riot. Vince Lawrence was at that game, and has since become a music producer and documentary filmmaker. He and Lindsay discuss the meaning of that infamous night, and how disco’s legacy is still with us today, in music and in culture.Listen to new episodes 1 week early and to all episodes ad free with Wondery+.

Is it just me, or did this episode feel like it rushed right through the middle and end of the story?

I think it's gross that the response to falsified evidence is "criminals could go free" instead of "innocent people could be in jail"

everyone who wants to run for public office should have to undergo therapy and anyone found to have narcissistic personality disorder should not be allowed to do so. I think it would prevent a lot of big problems like McCarthyism

I'm ashamed I didn't know about this story until Judas and the Black Messiah.. although maybe more pissed off than ashamed, should have been taught it in school.

I'd be disinclined to believe the government's account of the start of the fire. Since when could the government be trusted to tell the truth about anything, much less admit accountability?

This story is so infuriating because whatever the inhabitants of the compound did, the government did worse. And they did bad things - David Koresh was a pedophile and he molested kids - but the ATF killed those kids.
