ISO 202: ...And Then Things Got Kooky

So apparently there was this guy who was supposedly a couple thousand years old and he was well liked in the days of Louis XV. We have cosplayers (historical re-enactors) and stories of a man who apparently never died...and that's not the weird part.

ISO 201: Silly Superstitions

We kick off Season 2 of the In Search Of... series discussing the Lost Dutchman Mine. We discuss the gold rush, greed, and wardrobe choices. There is one story that was the impetus for the mine actually being famous, and we get a fascinating history of Apache legend.
