Episode 30: Deep and Twisted Roots

When two boys discovered a macabre surprise while playing in a Connecticut gravel pit, they uncovered more than a piece of the past. Their discovery echoes stories that are much older, stories with roots that reach far deeper than anyone might imagine.

Researched, written, and produced by Aaron Mahnke. Soundtrack playlist is available here.
