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.

Jan 11, 2018

Nothing…not too much wine or Hermione the cat laying on the computer keyboard and pausing the show mid word can stop co-hosts Beth and Kelly from diving into the deep, dark depths of the Patricia Hearst kidnapping. On Feb. 4, 1974, three members to the Symbionese Liberation Army, crashed into Hearst’s apartment, threw the newspaper heiress into the trunk and continued their failed revolution. Beth and Kelly also learn much about themselves—mainly that Beth refuses to be defined by driving a minivan.
