Episode 28: I, Tonya: Tonya Harding and the Attack on Nancy Kerrigan
Dark and Devious
It's a story of ambition, jealousy, and bad 90s mustaches; the story of Tonya Harding's triumphs and devastating fall from grace is a fascinating one. In the early 90s Tonya Harding had proved herself to be a powerhouse in competitive figure skating, but when it came to the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championship, Nancy Kerrigan stood in the way of the pursuit for first place. The day before the competition, Kerrigan was attacked after a practice in what became known as the "whack heard around the world." What would unravel from there is a strange conspiracy that would ultimately lead to Harding's undoing in the professional skating world.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/patrick-conn/support
