Do any of you know about Bear Brook, a podcast done by a man named Jason Moon from New Hampshire Public Radio? I added up the minutes, and I think it is about 6 hours long, and I spent my Sunday afternoon and early evening listening to it. I made bread, did dishes and laundry, and made supper during that time, but often I found myself just sitting, riveted by what I was hearing.
This true story is like none other I've ever heard. There are twists and turns, and the unexpected happens often.
The story begins with some boys in the 1980s coming across a metal barrel in the woods near their homes. They don't really look inside, but some months later a hunter does look in and finds the remains of two people.
Moon has done the most remarkable job. He is clear. He explains well who people are in the story. If there is someone mentioned in an earlier episode he reminds us just who that person is. All of this is very helpful because there are a lot of people mentioned.
I expect most people will listen to it an episode at a time, but it just happened to work out that I could "binge-listen" taking time out only to eat supper.
Here is the site. This is not just a NH story. It covers several different places in the country. I so hope you will listen. It is truly amazing.
