Episode 1: The Blueprint

The Oklahoma City Bombing seemed to come out of nowhere. Initially, America assumed that the attack was committed by Islamic terrorists. But just days later, America found out the truth. The perpetrator was Timothy McVeigh: a white man, a decorated Army veteran, a right wing extremist. Investigators search Timothy McVeigh’s car and find a highlighted excerpt from a racist novel. That book was the blueprint for the bombing, and it connects McVeigh to a movement that still thrives today.

Dive into a case of domestic terrorism from the past that’s really a warning about the future. Back in 1995, there was a disaster that should have prepared us for January 6th and the political violence that we’re seeing today: the Oklahoma City Bombing. Journalist Jeffrey Toobin reveals the story behind Timothy McVeigh, the Oklahoma City Bombing, and right-wing extremism in America - how a decorated army veteran became consumed with rage, how he somehow went underground and built a bomb that damaged fifty blocks in a modern city, and how everything that led to the horror of April 19th, 1995 is still very present in America. Homegrown: OKC is a USG Audio podcast produced by Western Sound and Esmail Corp. Based on the book “Homegrown: Timothy McVeigh and the Rise of Rightwing Extremism” by Jeffrey Toobin.
