S4E3: Halloween Podcast: Vanished From the Face of the Earth

For Halloween, Stan tells four of his favorite stories of people who simply vanished into thin air: The story of one of our Founding Fathers who vanished while mailing a letter; the most famous maritime missing persons mystery ever; the story of a man who literally was there one minute and gone the next; and finally perhaps the most notorious missing person case of the 20th century. Plus This Week in History: Duane Allman, King Tut, Jimmy Carter, Juliette Gordon Low, and more.

S3E2: The Monkey’s Paw

In honor of All Hallow’s Eve, Stan reads an old favorite, W.W. Jacob’s “The Monkey’s Paw.” Enjoy!
