Lost Boys of Hannibal


Mark welcomes John Wingate to show!
In 1967, the largest cave search in US history unfolded in historic Hannibal, Missouri, the boyhood home of author Mark Twain. Three modern day Tom Sawyers, with no caving expertise but an abundance of bravado, made Hannibal ground zero for a terrifying calamity that would leave its traumatic mark for half a century. The book, The Lost Boys of Hannibal :Inside America’s Largest Cave Search brings us back to the 1967 tragedy that held the attention of the nation

    Hey, I love that you used the Stone Breath song for this episode. Seemed fitting. Not sure if you know , but Timmothy also has a podcast called “Strange Familiars”. You may find it interesting… Also the name of the song is actually “Eyes of Fire”, off the album “Fallow”.
