The Strange and BRILLIANT podcast

I recently discovered this podcast and it’s now a favorite! Alyson is a magical storyteller, discussing interesting and assorted topics she finds interesting. I can’t say enough about The Strange and Unusual podcast. Give it a listen!

Worth a listen if you like your chills intelligent!

Love the research and some of the odd topics she covers (the clown one? Perfection! Loved hearing about the origins of clowns) the color green? never knew!

She’s a lovely narrator. I enjoy the format of each episode, sends the best kind of chills - intellectual and supernatural!

I just wish it there were more, but if fewer mean keeping the quality, it’s worth it.
