TRR: Episode 50, “Lost Pond”



Many states have a legend of a so-called “lost pond,” a place found by the early pioneers and woodsmen, but never marked properly on a map. All that remained were the stories told by the old-timers, the location itself lost to the wilderness. In this episode, we follow a pair of anglers in search of one such lost pond.
