00:11:32

We strive to put out a brand new episode of The Other Stories every single Monday but sometimes it doesn’t quite work out. This is a small operation and sometimes narrators are busy, equipment fails, and demons kidnap our children and take them off to mountain tops to sacrifice in the name of some ancient cosmos diety 


But all this means, is we get to bring you one of our favourite Patreon exclusive episodes out from the lock-box, and present it to you on the main feed. 


This one, in particular is one of our audio editor, Karl’s, favourite episodes.


As such… we hope you enjoy it and we’ll be back to our regular programming next week.
