The Kentucky Meat Shower: The Day It Rained Meat | 178

Spread the love

Weird things happen in Kentucky…chili buns…distilleries in dry counties…Johnny Depp. But perhaps the strangest was the day it rained meat on a rural farmstead. The event, now known as the Kentucky Meat Shower, is not only 100% real, it’s also yet to be fully explained. What would cause the heavens to open and drop a meaty monsoon on an unsuspecting farmer’s wife? We grab our umbrellas (and grills) and dive in to the Kentucky Meat Shower this week. Plus, Joe Peck returns to the show (it was unexpected), Kyle gets buggy again (less unexpected), and Conspiracy Bot has a new song (we wish we hadn’t expected it). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never been in a shower of meat, but one can dream – Hysteria 51.
