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.

Jan 17, 2019

Nathan Leopold Jr. and Richard Loeb set out to commit the perfect crime in 1924. Spoiler alert: they got caught. Join Strange Country co-hosts Beth and Kelly as they explore this sordid tale of affluenza, privilege and--get the ladies out of room, now!!! Now, I say!---penises. Beth would also like to mention that she says a few things she regrets, but since she does not know how to edit, there it is.

Theme music: Resting Place by A Cast of Thousands.
