Episode #122 “GOAT”

What do you really call a mountain goat? A hillbilly. On today’s show, I’m featuring a freaky topic…goats!  I’ll be talking about a few weird goat stories including the tale of the Powell Mountain Goat, the Sheepsquash, an Appalachian cryptid, and more including a reading of a Russian fairy tale called “The Goat and The Ram”. I promise you today’s show won’t be too baaaad.
