If you can conjure up the accent of an old upstate farmer better than Beth, then we've got a spot for you in our award-winning podcast. We don't think you can, she's that good. Find out about the strange tale of four brothers who grew up dirt poor in Munnsville, NY and who ended up the focus of a small town murder mystery. Who died, who lived, how did they live and were they as happy as Beth and Kelly are about the notion of bread and butter sandwiches? Listen to this Strange Country tale of the hard life and the hard death of the Ward Brothers.
