A Wild Mystery Podcast Appears

09-03-2023 • 33 mins

Hello Everyone! Welcome back for season 3!

Today we are discussing Sundown Towns. What they are, a little bit of their history, and some recent incidents in Sundown Towns.

Trigger Warnings for today are Racial profiling, disappearances, murder, mentions of suicide, mentions of the KKK, racist language, and mentions of hanging/lynching.

I wanted to add links directly because I use more quotes than usual in this episode. For photos and additional contact details for the missing cases please check out our social media on TikTok and Instagram as they will have the missing person photos.
