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 7, 2018

If there's something strange in your seance room. Who you gonna call? No, not ghostbusters. Harry Houdini. Houdini, the great escape artist, made it his mission to unmask fake mediums, and his abilities were put to the ultimate test in a WWE-style showdown with America's most famous medium. Have any idea who that might be? You probably figured out who won then. Strange Country Ep. 44 is all about the witch of lime street, and features a symphony of sound effects by DJ. Jazzy Kelly. Or is it a spirit ringing your bell box?!?

Theme music: Resting Place by A Cast of Thousands.
