Strange Country

Sometimes you need to have a glass of wine, cuppa whatever and listen to a good old weird story. Musical score Resting Place by A Cast of Thousands.

Aug 26, 2021

Dear Dash Hounds: Has worry from Covid taken over your life? Are you behaving in ways that seem rather devilish, as your rage powers on? Might you be possessed? If you are, Beth and Kelly know who to call and you will too after listening to this episode of Strange Country. We discuss the original muse/ inspiration for the movie The Exorcist. And we also learn that the need for such rituals has skyrocketed in the past 20 years. Of course we blame the orange monster for that. We hope you enjoy this brief escape from reality…or is it? Thanks always for listening, it is an act of love.
