In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we learn about the Ludlow colony in southern Colorado—a place that was once a bustling tent city and haven for miners and their families. But it was also the site of one of the country’s most monumental and violent clashes of the labor movement.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
