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.

Sep 13, 2018

The murder of Kitty Genovese in 1964 became the story of urban apathy, but did 38 neighbors really standby and watch the young woman get brutally murdered? In ep. 58 of Strange Country, co-hosts Beth and Kelly explore this horrific crime and Kelly considers becoming a police officer.

Theme music: Resting Place by A Cast of Thousands.
