    BONUS - The Thing in the Bush

    Bonus Content! We are happy to bring you this absolutely horrifying story from Australia. Found on reddit - User Bananana_Bread

    This is a snippet from a full episode we recorded but never used b/c SOMEONE didn't do their settings correctly and the audio is no good. 

    But we would be amiss to not give our listeners the chance to hear Erica'a famous Australian accent.
