With demand for sugar on the rise in the late 19th century, the production of sugar beets held the future for many migrant workers. Join Coloradoan reporter - and “The Way it Was” podcast host - Erin Udell as she looks at the children forced to take on the backbreaking work in Northern Colorado. No registration required.

“The Way it Was: A podpast” is a Northern Colorado history podcast produced by The Fort Collins Coloradoan. Episodes can be found on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Soundcloud and at Coloradoan.com/thewayitwas.
