    BOX351: Spiritual Painting Murder

    Can a painting actually be cursed? Many say "The Crying Boy" painting has been the cause of dozens of house fires. And then Kat tells us the story of two men who could quite possibly be the luckiest people to ever hit the high-seas. Warning! The little part which suffocates when the sharp part which gets hurt is swallowed is contained generously.

My kind of odd

I have always loved obscure tales and trivia, so this is right up my alley! Dan Cummins is one of my faves, so Scared to Death is where i heard about this podcast, last year on a deployment in Afghanistan. Fun fact: I have a bunch of family in Maine, Old Orchard Beach i believe. Keep truckin you guys.
