Wendy and Beth are having a hell of a week, so instead of a usual episode, this week we are posting one of our Extra Extra patron only episodes from the week of October 4th, 2021. We hope you enjoy it!

Extra, Extra, read all about it, Fruitloops has some updates for you, and we are gonna shout it!

This week’s roundup includes a man who joined a search party looking for… himself; racism at a Boston university; Miya Marcano’s story comes to a tragic end; an Oregon man was murdered, allegedly for looking at another man’s girlfriend; lands have been returned to Indigenous Australians; the remains of two people have been found in a wooded area in Portand; folks stood up for a man ridiculed by police for stealing diapers; and a stranded tarantula.

Look alive, y’all, it’s crazy out there!
