For our season one finale – we’re taking one week off and will return March 31 – we wanted to play a little, so we’re telling some stories that might not normally fit into a theme this week. First, Alicia brings us the story of the King and Queen of the Jazz Age, writer F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda. Though they never actually divorced, the story is a great illustration of the reality that some marriages don’t work, and a lot of people would be better off ending a marriage rather than staying in it.
Stacie follows that up with the story of a Manhattan address that ties together a bunch of Trashy Divorces threads. Its owners have included a previous Trashy Divorces subject, a divorcing couple we’re likely to cover in the future, and a slightly mysterious real estate magnate who will likely reappear.
