Join Jon Hanrahan and Sarah Axtell in their search for the ROCK, a Lawrence University icon missing since 1998. A Sisyphean journey in podcast form.

    Episode 5: We Call a Lawyer

    Episode 5: We Call a Lawyer

    In the fall of 1998 the nicest of boulders, the greatest of all granite, The ROCK disappeared from the Lawrence University campus in Appleton, Wisc. Seventeen years later, we found it. We left it there—in the sun and in the snow, hidden away behind a yellow agricultural tub and assorted grasses of the Midwest—with nothing more than a vague hope that maybe, someday that two-ton hunk of stone could come home.

    In Episode Five of No Stone Unturned we dig into court records. We call an attorney. We answer the questions we left murky in Episode Four. And we ask: How soon until The ROCK comes home?

Thanks

Y’all are great and this podcast is interesting and fun!

OTIS 1984 ,

A great slice of LU

As a former WLFM radio show host, trivia grandmaster, Sig Ep, and person known only by his nickname (not "Guy Super") from the class of the 1984 & devoted podcast listener, I just wanted to say you guys did a great job! Fantastic storytelling that hits the genre perfectly. I never heard of the Rock during my time at LU (nice job Plantz boys - I can easily picture Rik Warch's smirk when he oversaw the return of the Rock at your reunion). Your story caused me to remember the things that I loved about LU but also how much I hate it when people refuse to let go. Come on Phi Delt's it is time to let it go #returntheRock!
