This week, Patrice & Marleah talk about not thinking through hashtags, how all things are haunted in Savannah and the many different attacks one can die from while there. Then Patrice adds a new destination for the Summer while talking about the kidnapping of one of the greatest Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey’s sideshow acts and how a mother’s love, persistence, & general badassness reunites her family. All this and more on The Strange South.
