Episode 20 – Kidnappings

 

On this episode we hit the topic Kidnappings.  We cover three stories and also do a quick review of The Girls Are Gone a novel.

The Not so Magic School Bus

This may seem like a horrible story about the largest kidnapping in US history but stick with me. It’s really about being a hero no matter what your age.

Beer pairing for this story is a beer cocktail called School bus

Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre

It’s February 14th 1929. People are buying last minute gifts for their significant others, maybe receiving flowers from secret admirers, or maybe… just maybe… dying in a hail of gunfire. This episode is called The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre: well at least now I don’t have to buy a gift.

This story pairs with Bridge Brewing Company Turf War Modern IPA.
