Aug 20, 2020

It's hard to imagine a more beloved figure than Charles Lindbergh (pre-1939) so when his baby was kidnapped, it was like everybody's baby had been abducted. Strange Country co-hosts Beth and Kelly talk about this "crime of the century" and also reminiscence about their three years on the air as the most beloved podcast (pre-1939).
