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.

Aug 9, 2018

The Bohemian Grove is where the rich, powerful, mainly white dudes go to unwind, drink and pee on the glorious Redwoods that they would likely chop down just cuz they can. This has been happening every summer for nearly 150 years. Strange Country co-hosts Beth and Kelly speculate what these masters of the universe may be up to since no women are allowed, and make plans to bring their DEFT truck there next summer.

Theme music: Resting Place by A Cast of Thousands.
