Show Notes: Six Impossible Episodes

We haven't really hidden the fact that we get a lot of listener requests. The ones we get repeatedly usually rise to the top a little faster (with "the top" really meaning "out of the pile of more requests than we could ever reasonably do, since we've gotten 500+ and we only do 104 episodes a year").

But a few rise to the top and then fall straight down again, because it turns out there's just not enough information for us to be able to devote a whole show to them. Today, we talk about six of those: Stagecoach Mary, the London Beer Flood, Edward Mordrake, Robert the Haunted (or Enchanted) Doll, the Lost Army of Cambyses and Julie D'Aubigny.

(We've gotten at least five Julie D'Aubigny requests just since recording this.)

Our episode link is to come - I wrote this post in advance of being out on vacation, and the link didn't exist yet. In the meantime, you can find the show on our podcast page, our rss feed, iTunes and Stitcher.

My research:
