Would you like your very own Blister and Muck t-shirt? Visit the Support the Show page and check out the awesome shirts, hats, tote bags, and face masks. Basin Printing lovingly prints and ships each item right here in the Colorado Rocky Mountain town I call home. A portion of every purchase helps keep this show running week after week. A face mask can cover the cost of music or sound FX. A t-shirt fulfills next month’s web hosting fees. And I enclose a special surprise with every order.

For the curious, here are some books and articles that dig deeper into secret keeping and body snatching discussed during the introduction:

The Lady and Her Monsters: A Tale of Dissections, Real-Life Dr. Frankensteins, and the Creation of Mary Shelley’s Masterpiece by Roseanne Montillo

The Anatomist: A True Story about Gray’s Anatomy by Bill Hayes

Scientists Test How Well Children Keep Secrets

Should Parents Teach Children to Keep Secrets?

Special thanks to composer Roland Rudzitis for serving up the Blister and Muck theme song. Additional music from John Bartmann, Monplaisir, and Kevin MacLeod. Electrical contraption sounds from thatjeffcarter, M-Wolfe, Wakerone, and Grantorino551 at freesound.org. Mike Koenig at soundbible.com brought the ocean waves and the flickering city lights while Lisa Redfern brought the crickets. I am always grateful for my family, friends, and fans. One for one and all for you.
