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.

Jun 4, 2020

Well Dash Hounds, it just keeps happening. We think maybe telling the stories of the past each week will enlighten us to become better humans. But really our little podcast reminds you each week that yes, history does repeat itself. And here we are together as a hurting nation and sick world, watching white racist men in power continue to abuse people and their power. This week Kelly and Beth tell the heartbreaking story of Emmett Till. It is important to know his story as new stories of racism in America continue to unfold. Know history, change the future. We love you Dash Hounds, and as always, thank you for listening- it is an act of love.
