Episode 35: The Yazoo Witch // The Polk County Pot Plane

Patrice and Marleah drink good old classic mimosas and talk vengeful witch rants, quicksand, grave chains, pot, car chases, and Doosh.

 The Yazoo River Witch //

A Mississippi witch who lured men to their deaths in improbable ways prophesied – caused? – a 1904 fire that burned the whole town! Even chains couldn’t keep this bitch in the ground.

The Polk County Pot Plane //

In August of 1975, a DC4 plane landed in the woods on Treat Mountain, GA, with a cargo of 3200 pounds of marijuana and 85 kilos of hash. The escapade, while definitely not one-of-a-kind, provided a lot of in-town entertainment, and was made two years later into a painfully hilarious car chase film called “In Hot Pursuit.”

Just watch the movie.
