**SKIP TO 33:33 TO HEAR THE STORY**
In April of 1944, Finnish ski patrol soldier Aimo Koivunen was fleeing an attack from Soviets when he accidentally overdosed on a ration of Pervitin (Nazi Meth pills) large enough for his entire squad. In the meth-fueled chaos that ensued, Aimo became lost while high for two weeks in the Arctic Circle with no food, ammunition, or any idea of his location. Somehow he survived, and we have all the haunted details! Join Nat and Aly in their quest to find out: Meth Good?
