#610: Grand Gesture

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0000

This week we have stories of people going to very extreme measures to demonstrate their feelings. Elna Baker makes a questionable trip to Africa, while a man in Florida commits a series of disturbing acts in the name of love. Ira also goes to a high school to talk to kids before a dance.(image)

#582: When the Beasts Come Marching In

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0000

We human beings think we run the world, that we’ve got things under control. And then an animal shows up, and things don’t go as planned. We have stories this week where seals, wolves and a moose drop in and show us who isn't boss.(image)

#609: It’s Working Out Very Nicely

Mon, 06 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0000

This week we document what happened when the President’s executive order went into effect temporarily banning travel from seven countries, and we talk about the way it was implemented. A major policy change thrown into the world like a fastball with no warning. It’s hard not to ask: “What just happened? What was that all about?”(image)

#489: No Coincidence, No Story!

Mon, 30 Jan 2017 00:00:00 +0000

We asked listeners to send us their best coincidence stories, and we got more than 1,300 submissions! There were so many good ones we decided to make a whole show about them. From a chance encounter at a bus station to a romantic dollar bill to a baffling apparition in a college shower stall. See more of your coincidence stories — with photos — here.(image)
