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 24, 2020

Heya there Dear Dash Hounds. Are you taking your daily dose of bleach? If you paused on that suggestion on how to survive this terrible pandemic of 2020, you may appreciate stories of survival from the other pandemic of 1918. It’s funny, (but it isn’t) how that terrible virus was downplayed by politicians, killed an unknown number of people, and had people up in arms about their right to wear or not wear a mask. Strange Country, isn’t it? Listen as Beth and Kelly survive another week through stories, personal outbursts and laughter. Thanks always for listening- it is an act of love, and nowadays survival!

Theme music: Big White Lie by A Cast of Thousands
