That changed when the geeked-out history folks of Orhistory.com Doug Kenck-Crispin and Andy Lindberg (a.k.a., the crack hustlers of Oregon History) released the spooky and riveting story of The Great Astoria Plague of 1901 (in which we learn that something fishy lurks beneath the surface of Astoria) on April 1, 2012.
Listen to it now!
This was volume 4, episode 4 of the long running podcast, Kick Ass Oregon History, which covers just the good stuff: Sex, Drugs, Rock and Roll and Earth Shattering, Devastating Destruction.
P.S. On April 1 fans of cosmic horror . . . and perceptive joke-getters aren’t fools . . .
