There you are walking along the shores of the Salish Sea when you spot it. What is that, a fish? Some Trash? Nah, just a human foot washed up in a sneaker! Sounds crazy but since 2007 this very thing has happened 21 times! What could be the cause; a killer, mob hits, or something more mundane? We lace up our most buoyant shoes and try to get to the bottom of it with the returning help of Kevin Crispin. Plus, Brent’s demons say hello, Kevin discusses the body parts he expects to find on breaches, and science comes to the rescue. All that and more on the podcast that never finds human feet at the beach, there are enough in our robot’s closet – Hysteria 51.
