He just vanished? And then, what caused Zack Bowen to do the unthinkable? The mysterious disappearance of Brandon Lawson and  the gruesome tale of Zack and Addie. Vacuum sealed for freshness and packed inside BOX129.
Stuff found where it should not be. Is this finally evidence of time travel? And then, why is that bird crawling inside that crocodile's mouth? It's about Incredibly odd inter-species animal symbiosis.

Are the walking zombies of Indonesia real? And then, a town where only women can live. A most unusual funerary practice and a village that one abuse victim built to keep herself and others safe. BOX126 is conveniently located with plenty of free parking! 
This elevator was a real downer. Then Kat's story is sort of like a Jeopardy category. A horrific elevator accident and odd presidential firsts. Box125 was lovingly handcrafted by local podcast artisans.

My great grandfather went to jail once or twice for possessing alcohol. Once he chased the sheriff of his property with a handgun. As a non-drinker, it makes me giggle to know a relative was shaking up my conservative hometown.

One of the best mating things was left out! There's a spider in Australia that will kill and eat any male that intrudes on her den, if she doesn't like him. She's very picky who she mates with.

Koalas in the rain, no fucks given. The dingo really did take the baby. Everyone in Australia made fun of that mother until they found out it was real. Then they felt terrible.

talking about jalapenos and touching sensitive spots. My late husband was an amazing cook. we were newlyweds at the time. And well, he thought he got all of the jalapenos and their juices off his hands and out from under his nails. And that's all I'm going to say about that. Lots of crying.....

Damn Jethro.... that was fucking dark. As a parent of an only child, I can relate to the dad. I would gladly go to jail in that situation. In extreme circumstances there is no lengths a parent wouldn't go to, to avenge their child.
