Love this show! But…

But I really wish they didn’t wait a whole week to release their strange news stories in general. Specifically, listening to the Gabby Patito story today as if she were still missing is notably difficult.

Hard to listen to this.

These guys are half-baked. Literally and “figuratively”. Do this subject matter like experts, not like 3 bros drinking beer.

The Little People (Cherokee Legend)

Just got around to responding to your episode where you mention the Cherokee legend about the little people. I am a Cherokee citizen of the Western band in Oklahoma and grew up in thus community. I’ve heard these whispered stories of the little people my whole life.

Why whispers? I’ll explain.

Generally these little people are supposed to help lost travelers or children, and generally do good things, but there is one steadfast rule and if you break the this rule, they are…not so nice. I will leave it at that.

What is the rule…you don’t talk about the little people.

I guess we all (myself included) broke that rule. lol

(Big fan of the show)
