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.

How much do you think about facial hair? Get ready to dive deep, and get hairy when we discuss the life of Joseph Palmer, a man persecuted for wearing the beard, in Strange Country Episode 10. It was a strange time when men were expected to be clean shaven, or else they would be attacked in fear of the free-thinkers. It's a good thing Beth wasn't around back then, she may have joined in. Tune in and beard on, or something like that.
