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.

May 7, 2020

This week we will scare the shit out of you. Ah Dash Hounds, if our stories of strange, ghostly things never made your shoulder hair stand up, how about the idea that vaccines can take a really long time to get right. We will dive into the polio vaccine of 1955 and learn that sometimes problems can arise when doling out the new promising vaccine. Our intention is not to make you fearful, but to bring intelligence and insight and skepticism to anything that looks like it may be good. But you already do that Dash Hounds because you are special like Beth and Kelly. More often these times are mirroring old times more than we could have imagined. Be safe, stay healthy and Happy Listening.
