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.

Jul 6, 2023

Join us this week on Strange Country as we go way back in time to the 1600s when life was grand, and if you lived to be a 50-year-old woman, you should just STFU. Because if you did decide to speak truth of any sort you would likely be accused of witchcraft. That’s what happened to Goody Garlick of Easthampton (originally one word), NY. Enjoy Goody Kelly and Goody Beth as we sweat like they did in the 17th century, and conjure up ways to make more money, and deal with this heat. Thanks always for listening; it is an act of love.

Theme music: Big White Lie by A Cast of Thousands
