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.

Jul 18, 2019

Dearest Readers: Imagine you are having a typical day in your life when the phone rings (right there, we know, we just dated ourselves) and you pick it up (again with the old) and the woman on the line informs you that you have had a twin all your life. You were separated at birth, for the reasons only mad scientists from Nazi Germany can conjure up, and told a lie your whole life until now. It is time to hear the story of Paula and Elyse of NYC and many others born in NYC put up for adoption in the 60’s at the Louise Wise Agency. Can you even imagine what that did to these women and other adults in their 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s? Fucked them up. Welcome to Strange Country number 102...the hits just keep on coming. We welcome you each episode to hear about the crazy and remind you, it isn’t you who is crazy...the rest of the world is nutso! Happy Reading Dashhounds😘
