What's Slate Presents: The Queen | The Forgotten Life Behind an American Myth about?

In 1992, hundreds of armed federal agents surrounded a family of white separatists in a ramshackle mountaintop cabin. Eleven days later, three people were dead—and the story of Ruby Ridge was just beginning. Journalist Ruth Graham explores a tragedy that’s become a foundational myth for the modern right, and finds some frightening lessons about power and paranoia.

Standoff: What Happened at Ruby Ridge? is the first in a new line of in-depth narrative podcast miniseries from Slate.
