We're starting off our month-long Halloween series with a fit of the vapors! Our first Halloween episode will take us to the mad, mad world of Mattoon, Illinois in 1944, where the "Phantom Anesthetist" attacked dozens of people with...well, we still don't know. But we have theories and rampant speculation, as always.
And don't miss several seriously random fun facts involving fast food restaurants, popular comic books, and well-known children's writers. Plus helium voices and a truly beautiful Broadway song commemorating this week's topic.
Also, give us that 5-star review you know we deserve! You can also follow us here on Podbean, Stitcher, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts. While you're at it, hit us up on our FB group or Twitter to talk Old Timey Crime.
Thanks for listening, and remember: just, you know, don't gas people.
