S1.Ep03 The Parcel

Posted: January 21, 2014 in Podcast

The 2013 Christmas Season ended recently, and with it the busiest time of the year for postal workers came to a close. Each year, millions of us around the world depend on the postal service to deliver our letters and packages to loved ones everywhere. As long as you’ve got the right amount of postage on your letter or package, the postal workers will see it to it’s final destination. As you’ll hear in this episode, a family living in Idaho during the early 20th Century tested the limits of this reasoning, when they sent a very special parcel through the Post.
