Show Notes

We're wrapping up our global tour of the Top 10 Ding Dong Countries by bringing you a mystery from the final five. What are they? Well... we'll leave you to listen and find out, but they do all have one thing in common: GERMANY IS EVERYWHERE.

This episode is bringing you Van Gogh (murder or suicide?), a possible cryptic code to a mysterious homicide (YOGTZE), a pair of wicked coin heists, the possible identification of the Somerton Man, and a mysterious woman's skeleton in a nightmarish tree.

Pack your bags, Ding Dongs. This is gonna be one helluva sojourn.
