Things get weird pretty quickly around here.

24 short stories in fairly typical Bierce fashion - ghostly, spooky, to be read (or listened to) in the dark, perhaps with a light crackling fire burning dimly in the background. Stories of ghosts, apparitions, and strange, inexplicable occurrences are prevalent in these tales, some of which occur on or near Civil War fields of battle, some in country cottages, and some within urban areas. Can Such Things Be? implies and relates that anything is possible, at any time. (Summary by Roger Melin)
 
The Scrub Zone Cycling Podcast is primarily a project created for our friends, and the lovely communities we've engaged with through road cycling and cyclocross. It's not about the professionals, or the country's biggest races. The podcast is about the hilarity of amateur bike racers, the eccentric lives they lead, and the unlikely friendships (or feuds) that form between this strange cast of characters. Quite specifically, in New England.

David Innes is a mining heir who finances the experimental "iron mole," an excavating vehicle designed by his elderly inventor friend Abner Perry. In a test run, they discover the vehicle cannot be turned, and it burrows 500 miles into the Earth's crust, emerging into the unknown interior world of Pellucidar. In Burroughs' concept, the Earth is a hollow shell with Pellucidar as the internal surface of that shell. Pellucidar is inhabited by prehistoric creatures of all geological eras, and do ...
 
Filling the Gapp is a podcast about the important topics in South Africa that goes beyond the usual discussions of government simply in terms of corruption and incompetence. Of course, they are. But we aim to go deeper than that. What are the deeper underlying reasons informing South Africa's ruling ANC?

What is about unsolved murders that stay with us? In particular why does the true crime genre skew female? In this episode of Strange Country, co-hosts Beth and Kelly talk about Julie Monson and Jane Britton, two young women cut down in the prime of their lives. Monson disappeared after a night out in September 1981 in Auburn, NY. Britton was found…
 
Conway sorts through some old--and possibly haunted--video games. The office receives a letter from someone with a peculiar ghost problem. Happy (late) April Fools! I certainly hope no major video game publishers listen to this show! (CWs: alcohol, broken bone, brief blood)
 
The office receives a grisly letter from the early 20th century about an experimental composer. Conway muses about his past and present. (CWs: blood, body horror, knuckles cracking) Music: Purcell - Rondeau From Abdelazer Vivaldi - Concerto for Two Violins in A Minor Saint-Saëns - Danse macabre, Op. 40…
 
It is so close to spring break that Kelly and Beth thought a little story about rum, cocaine, and a beautiful Caribbean Island would be timely. Thinking of traveling? Now that we are seemingly on the other side of this pandemic- we understand, but we will caution you to not take the late night boat ride run by white supremacists, laden with weaponr…
 
For decades, Anthony Gignac pretended to be Saudi royalty, racking up hotel bills, department store charges, and even swindling Syracuse University out of money. Strange Country co-hosts Beth and Kelly would talk more about this, but are trapped in Nigeria with their huge fortune, and need your help. If you could send your bank account number, they…
 
In 1912, four-year-old Bobby Dunbar went missing on a family vacation only to turn up nine months later in nearby Mississippi. Or did he? Strange Country co-hosts Beth and Kelly talk about this odd tale of a boy with two mothers claiming him as their son, and the weirdo lurkers and gawkers that we're all now descended from who watched the whole thi…
 
Women have been labeled crazy in an effort to shut them up. In the 1970s, the label stuck to Martha Mitchell. Martha's husband John Mitchell headed up Nixon's reelection campaign. Richard Nixon was definitely NOT crazy. He was totally cool in a paranoid, spying, enemy-listing kind of way. Martha knew one of the Watergate burglars was connected to t…
 
Kelly and Beth speak our truth each week on Strange Country and it feels so good. It may take us a while, meandering through details of our lives as mothers, women in our 40s, and librarians, but we get there eventually, dear Dashhounds. Thanks for listening and supporting that journey each week. This week we give honor to the podcast space that le…
 
If you could leave instructions for the survivors of the apocalypse, what would you say? If you need some suggestions, you could always look to the Georgia Guidestones, a monument built in 1980 by a group of unidentified "loyal Americans who love God." They share their tips in the style of a David Letterman Top 10 list. Some like the stones for the…
 
In the days before the board game Operation or Play Doh's dentist head, doctors needed something to hone their knowledge of the human anatomy. So they hired people to bring them dead bodies dug up fresh from the graveyards. Strange Country co-hosts Beth and Kelly talk about these night doctors and resurrectionists who gave a new meaning to the phra…
 
(CWs: some strong language, brief suggestive language, food) Valentine's Day comes early as a city in California replaces its old sodium-vapor streetlights with LEDs, and Conway receives a sign from above. "My Prayer" originally composed by Georges Boulanger, Carlos Gomez Barrera, and Jimmy Kennedy, covered by the Platters, covered by me.…
 
Readers and Dash Hounds we are into 2021 and still here as Americans, as women, friends, and your loving weekly podcasters! This week’s show highlights the story of one of the first women’s shelters in Texas, and how it became a successful hub and utopia for women who otherwise would have been stuck. How did it work? Easy peasy lemon squeazy—Sancti…
 
If you ever encountered someone who told you to "do the research" after that person posted something beyond delusional then you're likely communicating with someone in the Qanon conspiracy. Strange Country co-hosts Beth and Kelly break down the plan, the storm, the crumbs, the delusions, and lament the future of our country where so many live in a …
 
Readers we are reeling, as you probably are, after watching events at our nation’s Capitol. So bear with Beth and Kelly because it will take a little time and interruption of subjects to get to the heart of today’s podcast- Flat Earthers. We want to make sure we all agree here; planet earth is a round wonder. Right?! Of course. And the notion that …
 
Get out your cloudbuster and strap into your orgone accumulator because it's time to talk about the sexual electricity that courses through the sky. Psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich discovered this energy after studying specimens of milk steak under a microscope. Strange Country cohosts Beth and Kelly talk about Reich's claims that orgone could cure can…
 
Don’t give up hope! That is the tagline for 2021 and the intention of lovehaswon- a religion that is really a tax-exempt cult currently operating and looking for new members (read $). Beth and Kelly will chat about why people join cults, why Beth is ready to sign up, and why you really should question everything. Find out if you are in fact already…
 
You better deck the halls with boughs of barbed wire because we are in the midst of war, dash hounds. Trees are being maligned as "holiday trees" and to-go cups are strangely under-decorated to the point where Jesus doesn't even want to attend his own party. And he can't!! Because Dr. Fauci forbids it. Strange Country cohosts Beth and Kelly talk ab…
 
What is about losers and coups? While we battle our current takedown of democracy, residents of Wilmington, N.C, dealt with the real thing in 1898. Angry over the loss of the war and the meager rights gained by black men, Democrats gunned down black residents and took control away from the rightly elected. And no traitor suffered any consequence. E…
 
Strange Country Readers: always and forever you know we are here for you, especially in this time of universal sadness. But sadly you cannot pet us. Actually it is better that way- can you imagine? Don’t. Instead we suggest the importance of animals and pets during this bleak winter. A lesson we take from the Roosevelt family who lived in the White…
 
In the early '90s, facilitated communication was the big breakthrough. It was finally a way for nonverbal people to communicate their innermost thoughts while getting an assist from a facilitator. But then it started to become more clear that it was the facilitator who was actually communicating, and communicating some horrific allegations of sexua…
 
Happy Turkey Lurkey Day Dash Hounds! Beth and Kelly hope you are just as miserable as they are eating your meal alone in a closet this Covidsgiving. Or not at all. This week’s tale of truth is about Mollie Fancher - a fasting girl of the Victorian Er-ah who thought it would be cool to not eat. For years. And brag all about it. And other women did t…
 
Hey Dash Hounds, it might be helpful to grab a pen, some paper, some alcohol as Strange Country co-hosts Beth and Kelly take you on the winding, confusing tale of Anthony Godby Johnson. In the early 1990s, Johnson was or was not a teen who was or was not abused who did or did not write a memoir about him suffering or not suffering from AIDS. Unders…
 
In ep. 167 of Strange Country, we learn the answer to: What does the fox say? Well, not really, but cohosts Beth and Kelly talk about the Office of Strategic Services' "illuminating" plan to demoralize the Japanese during World War II. It's a plan that is as cunning as a fox, if you get our drift. You don't? Yeah, we don't either. Theme music: Big …
 
This Strange Country episode doesn't suck. And that is the solid comedy gold to expect as you listen to Beth and Kelly try not to talk about the election that hasn't happened as they recorded but has happened when this airs. The cortisol is definitely traipsing through their 60,000 mile-long circulatory systems. Oh, and vampires, yes, they're talki…
