Slate Presents: Standoff | What Happened at Ruby Ridge?

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.

Be better

Why are some commenters bringing up that Weaver killed an agent but ignoring that federal agents murdered both Weaver’s young son and his wife while she was holding their infant child, putting that baby in danger, too?
You don’t have to be on Weaver’s side to acknowledge that both sides were in the wrong. Are children to pay the price for their parents while the public completely ignores them?

I don’t see the pro Weaver that others are accusing the hosts of. Some people are so unreasonable that if you present a topic and aren’t calling that person every name in the book, because you’re professional, then you’re accused of being on their side. These people have maturing to do.

Better than Bundyville

This is everything Bundyville isn’t. A far better look at the Far Right. The bonus episodes are worth joining Slate Plus. They are the standard for what the content in a bonus episode should be. Not silly outtakes or hosts/reporters droning on and on ad infinitum but substantial interviews and additional content that flesh out the story. A+++ in my book. Highly recommend.

Great show

This could be so many more than 4 episodes..... I REALLY wish they went deeper down this rabbit hole!!!
