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.

Sep 27, 2018

Edmund Creffield was the second coming of Christ or at least that's what he told his followers in 1903. He would whip them into such a frenzy that they would roll for hours on the floor. They left their families. They burned their furniture. They annoyed their neighbors. What was Creffield's draw? Strange Country co-hosts Beth and Kelly explore this odd cult from the west coast.

Theme music: Resting Place by A Cast of Thousands.
