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.

Oct 5, 2017

In episode 9 of Strange Country, Beth and Kelly open up a bag of worms or a box of cats as they discuss the Battle of Gettysburg, ghosts and engage in a little readers' theater. This episode came about as a suggestion from a loyal listener/reader who's son's camera went all kablooey while taking pictures at Devil's Den.

Theme music: Resting Place by A Cast of Thousands
