Episode 87: Road Trip

Every now and then a story comes along that is so powerful and compelling that it creates a new branch on the tree of folklore. Yes, it has deeper roots, but sometimes a new expression of fear grows out to cast new shade on our already-fearful lives. And one of these rare moments happened less than six decades ago.

Written and produced by Aaron Mahnke, with research assistance from Marcet Crockett and music by Chad Lawson.
