I mean, the title really does say it all! This week, Rachael digs into (get it?) people who bury others in their backyard. Get ready for some very gratifying karma in this one, folks. Rachael highlights four separate cases and goes into some statistics on backyard burials, because this is apparently something that is common enough for people to write academic journals on...yikes.

When an 11-year-old girl named Sabrina Buie is found murdered, Henry McCollum and Leon Brown are brought in for questioning and eventually confess after long interrogations. They are 19 and 15-years old, respectively, and both have intellectual disabilities, with Leon Brown not even able to read his own signed confession. They are charged with rape and murder and are given the death penalty. Years go by and both men are adamant about their innocence. What evidence exists that ties them to the crime, and what evidence exists that can exonerate them? And if they didn't commit the crime, who did? Sentenced to death at 16, Brown became the youngest person on North Carolina's death row, and McCollum became North Carolina's longest-serving death row prisoner. Stay tuned toward the end for some statistics on wrongful convictions and a discussion about what wrongful convictions mean for the family of victims.Sources: 1) https://www.law.umich.edu/special/exoneration/Pages/casedetail.aspx?caseid=44932) https://deathpenaltyinfo.org/news/north-carolina-jury-awards-death-row-exonerees-henry-mccollum-and-leon-brown-75m-for-their-wrongful-capital-convictions3) https://nccadp.org/stories/henry-mccollum-leon-brown/4) https://ncpolicywatch.com/2022/11/02/court-of-appeals-backs-suspension-for-lawyer-who-swindled-wrongfully-convicted-black-men/ 5) https://wcsj.law.duke.edu/2021/10/event-recap-henry-mccollum-leon-brown-attorneys-talk-wrongful-convictions/ 6) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_McCollum_and_Leon_Brown 7) https://abc11.com/child-rape-murder-red-springs-1983-killed/293662/ 8) https://www.theroot.com/my-sister-s-convicted-killer-was-innocent-23-years-lat-1790877141 9) https://www.georgiainnocenceproject.org/2022/02/01/beneath-the-statistics-the-structural-and-systemic-causes-of-our-wrongful-conviction-problem/#:~:text=Studies%20estimate%20that%20between%204,result%20in%20a%20wrongful%20conviction.
This Tuesday, Kate talks about the infamous D.B. Cooper skyjacking case, in which a man who called himself "Dan Cooper" alerted a flight attendant that he had a bomb and demanded 1.3 million dollars (in today's money) in cash ransom. The plane lands, cash is brought aboard, and Cooper parachutes out of the plane, never to be seen again. Who is D.B. Cooper? Well, that's still unknown. But there are always theories :) Missing person spotlight of the week: Greisy Ramirez Cruz is 16 yo hispanic female who was last seen in Seattle, WA on October 8, 2022. Greisy has brown hair and brown eyes. She is 5 foot 1 and weighs 105 pounds.

For this week's episode, Rachael first goes over some very exciting true crime news involving a decades-old unsolved case in Massachusetts. The main case this week surrounds a triple murder in the VERY small town of Machias, Maine, which is only about 30 minutes south of Canada. Thomas Bonfanti killed three individuals and attempted to kill a fourth. He claims that all murders and attempted murders were either accidental or in self-defense. Cue suspicious looks/noises.

This week, hear about the incredible survival of an 8-year-old girl who was kidnapped, raped, and left for dead in a field. Jennifer Schuett waited almost two decades to get the answers she desperately wanted: what was the name of her kidnapper? Was he still out there, potentially harming others?Today, Jennifer is an advocate for other victims of crime and has continued to beat all the odds.

A true crime episode TWICE this week? YES. Rachael talks about true crime in the Bridgewater Triangle in this episode. Several murders, including the well-known murder of Mary Lou Arruda, are discussed. We also talk about (and get very angry about) the rape of Cheryl Ann Araujo, which occurred in a bar (and yes, there were multiple people in the bar who did absolutely nothing). Her case was actually one of the first to be publicly televised, and inspired the movie, The Accused, which featured Jodie Foster as Cheryl.Lesser known and unsolved murders, assaults, and missing person cases are also discussed.Sources: 1) https://www.enterprisenews.com/story/news/crime/2008/09/25/conviction-upheld-for-man-who/40363654007/2) https://www.wcvb.com/article/with-death-of-mary-lou-arruda-s-killer-raynham-hopes-wounds-will-heal/82311513) https://themorbidlibrary.com/2020/03/30/murdered-the-bridgewater-triangle-part-iv/4) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheryl_Araujo5) https://www.wpri.com/news/local-news/se-mass/freetown-police-searching-for-car-involved-in-deadly-hit-and-run-last-year/6) https://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum/topic/93244-freetown-state-forest/7) https://www.wickedlocal.com/story/journal-sun/2015/03/25/bodies-found-in-brockton-woods/34902023007/8) https://www.patriotledger.com/story/news/crime/2014/12/31/gruesome-discovery-shocks-brockton-man/35622917007/9) https://fletchermarple.com/post/137633110144/the-mystery-of-two-women-and-a-potential-serial10) https://www.wcvb.com/article/brockton-killer-likely-did-it-before-may-do-it-again-experts-say/821507411) http://www.truecrimedeadline.com/episode-show-notes/previous/312) https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2019/03/01/closer-look-louis-coleman-man-charged-connection-with-murder-jassy-correia/lNX6LBiDUdvfcJ51HiNpeJ/story.html13) https://www.websleuths.com/forums/threads/ma-jassy-correia-23-last-seen-at-club-venu-phone-shut-off-boston-24-feb-2019-arrest.427946/page-1014) https://unsolvednews.substack.com/p/a-serial-killer-at-work15) https://www.justice.gov/usao-ma/pr/louis-coleman-iii-convicted-federal-jury-kidnapping-resulting-death16) https://www.masslive.com/police-fire/2022/05/louis-d-coleman-iii-accused-of-kidnapping-and-killing-23-year-old-jassy-correia-heads-to-trial-in-boston.html17) https://nypost.com/2022/06/02/louis-coleman-guilty-of-kidnapping-murder-of-boston-mom/18) https://caselaw.findlaw.com/ma-supreme-judicial-court/1038292.html19) https://www.wickedlocal.com/story/journal-news-independent/2016/01/26/no-tears-in-raynham-on/987501007/20) https://apnews.com/article/348f4ce7d6d08d260c7cc15b8718b48d21) https://www.encyclopedia.com/law/law-magazines/new-bedford-rape-trial-198422) https://www.850wftl.com/first-the-accuser-book-now-netflix-features-big-dans-rape-trials/23) https://www.southcoasttoday.com/story/news/2020/05/13/new-netflix-series-puts-spotlight/1208033007/24) https://www.westfield.ma.edu/historical-journal/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/2018-Winter-Michael-New-Bedfords-Infamous-1983-Rape-Case.pdf25) https://www.esquire.com/entertainment/tv/a32585426/cheryl-araujo-trial-by-media-true-story/
Tune in to this week's episode to hear Rachael talk about a possible serial killer in Brockton, Massachusetts...or is it two different killers, using the same dumping ground? Authorities have connected this potential serial killer's DNA to several rapes as well, though no successful matches have come from it. Rachael connects this to the 2019 kidnapping and murder of Jassy Correia which happened in downtown Boston. When the killer's picture was released, there was an influx of calls from people who thought he looked identical to a sketch of this supposed Brockton serial killer. Jassy Correia's killer was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole only a few days prior to the release of this episode.Sources:1) https://www.boston.com/news/crime/2022/10/11/louis-coleman-life-sentence-prison-kidnapping-death-jassy-correia/2) https://www.delawareonline.com/story/news/2019/03/01/donations-pour-2-year-old-daughter-boston-victim-found-delaware/3026361002/3) https://www.wickedlocal.com/story/journal-sun/2015/03/25/bodies-found-in-brockton-woods/34902023007/4) https://www.patriotledger.com/story/news/crime/2014/12/31/gruesome-discovery-shocks-brockton-man/35622917007/5) https://fletchermarple.com/post/137633110144/the-mystery-of-two-women-and-a-potential-serial6) https://www.wcvb.com/article/brockton-killer-likely-did-it-before-may-do-it-again-experts-say/82150747) http://www.truecrimedeadline.com/episode-show-notes/previous/38) https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2019/03/01/closer-look-louis-coleman-man-charged-connection-with-murder-jassy-correia/lNX6LBiDUdvfcJ51HiNpeJ/story.html9) https://www.websleuths.com/forums/threads/ma-jassy-correia-23-last-seen-at-club-venu-phone-shut-off-boston-24-feb-2019-arrest.427946/page-1010) https://unsolvednews.substack.com/p/a-serial-killer-at-work11) https://www.justice.gov/usao-ma/pr/louis-coleman-iii-convicted-federal-jury-kidnapping-resulting-death12) https://www.masslive.com/police-fire/2022/05/louis-d-coleman-iii-accused-of-kidnapping-and-killing-23-year-old-jassy-correia-heads-to-trial-in-boston.html13) https://nypost.com/2022/06/02/louis-coleman-guilty-of-kidnapping-murder-of-boston-mom/14) https://caselaw.findlaw.com/ma-supreme-judicial-court/1038292.html15) https://www.wickedlocal.com/story/journal-news-independent/2016/01/26/no-tears-in-raynham-on/987501007/16) https://apnews.com/article/348f4ce7d6d08d260c7cc15b8718b48d

A podcast to answer all your questions about productivity, time management, self-development and goal planning. My name is Carl Pullein and I am your host for this show. How do you manage running a new business, or even running your own department with multiple things happening each day and projects that need to be got off the ground, or maintained. It a real challenge and leave you feeling exhausted, and more importantly, stressed out about what you may or may not have done. This is one of the many reasons why getting yourself organised and being consistent with your daily and weekly planning is so important. It's this planning that gives you an edge. It elevates you above the fray and keeps you focused on the bigger picture. Without a plan for the week, you will inevitably get sucked into the daily churn of low and high important tasks. It will feel endless and it doesn't lead to a great outcome. Sure, you may have a reasonably successful business or department, but you, as an individual, will be exhausted, tired and stressed out and that leads to poor decision making and mistakes. Now, before we get into the question, I just wanted to give you a heads up that I have just launched my latest mini-course. The Goal Setting course will give you a blueprint to build the life you want to live by developing the vision of what you want, and then using goals to make sure you are moving along the right pathway. It's an exciting course that will inspire you to grow, develop and start making the changes you need to make to become the person you want to be. Full details of this mini-course will be in the show notes. Now, on with this show and that means it's time to hand you over to the Mystery Podcast voice for this week's question. This week's question comes from Cara. Cara asks: Hi Carl, I run a growing start up business and have found managing multiple tasks and projects each day is a real pain point. How would you suggest we manage multi-tasking to keep the business running and developing new projects? Hi Cara, thank you for your question. Now, we better first deal with the concept of “multi-tasking”. Straight up, don't ever do it. Or rather try to do it. It's impossible, never works and only leads to mistakes which will need correcting later. Slow down. There is more than enough time each day to work on the important things. You don't have to do everything in one day. I know our minds are telling us it has to be done today, but really? Does it? When you step back, take a breath and look at what you have on your list of things to do, you will see that many of those tasks don't really need to be done today. It might be nice to be able to do them, but it would not be the end of your business if you rescheduled the less important tasks to later in the week. Now, there's a good reason for rescheduling less important things to later in the week and that is most of these will not need doing anyway. They are what I call “reactive” tasks. Tasks that seem important right now, but with a little time resolve themselves and can be discarded. I'm reminded of a story about former Israel Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, who would put aside his letters and memos for ten days before reading them. What he found was 90% of the issues resolved themselves and the remaining 10% was where he needed to put his attention. Now, in today's world things move a lot faster than they did in the 1980s, but the principle still remains, most of what comes into our inboxes will resolve themselves, there is no need to rush. You can put aside most issues for twenty-four to forty-eight hours without any problems. When you do come to them, it's likely many of them will have resolved themselves. I'm always surprised at how many emails I get asking a question, only to find an hour later the same person writes to tell me they've resolved the issue. That taught me to slow down and not rush into a response. Of course, there are some issues that do need dealing with straight away. But most don't. Learn to slow down. You will thank yourself for that later. Now, I mentioned in the opening about the importance of planning. Planning is the key to staying on top of everything being thrown at you. You need some time each day and week to step back and evaluate what is important. What needs to get done about all else. For instance, last week, my priority was to launch my Goal Setting course. I still had my core work to do—content and coaching client feedback—but aside from that work, my priority last week was launching the course. Now, this was not the first course I have launched, so I have a process for launching courses. However, that process still requires a lot of time. This meant, each day last week, I made sure my core work was done early. For instance, on Monday, when I wrote the blog post, I started my day by getting that written. Once that was written, I blocked out two hours to work on the course. For those of you who don't know, your core work is your most important work—the work you are employed to do. If you are a salesperson, your core work is any activity that results in a sale. If you are an analyst, your core work is any activity that involves analysing. Everything else (email replies, meetings and admin work) is secondary to that. When I finished each day, I gave myself ten minutes to go through my task list to see what I had on for the next day and prioritised two things: my core work and the course. I then looked at my calendar to see where I could fit those tasks in. This month I have two courses to work on. That's unusual, not only do I need to launch my Goal Setting mini-course, but I also need to work on the update to my Apple Productivity course. It would be easy to stress myself about the Apple Productivity course, but what's the point? I can only work on one course at a time, so the only question is which one do I work on tomorrow? Now that the goals setting course is launched, I can turn my attention to updating my Apple Productivity course. My work is much more manageable and realistic. If I had tried to do both at the same time, I would be stressed out and inevitably make a lot of mistakes that will need to be resolved later. The key is to focus on one project at a time. Of course, you may have multiple projects going on at the same time, but given that you cannot work effectively on two or more projects at the same time, you need to decide, at a weekly level, which projects you will focus on that week. One thing that has worked for me, is to allocate time each week for certain activities. I also know a lot of business founders have also found this method effective. That is to block time out each day of the week for certain activities. For instance, email and communications. These come in every day and it's unlikely you will be able to stop them. This means, you need time each day for managing your communications. For me, I need around forty minutes a day to stay on top of my communications. So, I have a one hour block each day between 7 and 8pm for responding to my actionable messages. Find an appropriate time in the day and block it out on your calendar for managing your email. Other activities you need to do regularly, for example, prospecting, accounting, admin and your personal life need time allocating to them. You could dedicate Mondays to prospecting, Tuesdays to admin and Fridays to accounting. Wednesday and Thursday could be dedicated to project work. Knowing you have time allocated to prospecting, admin and accounting leaves you feeling less stressed and it makes it easier to decide when you will do something. I would add, that it helps to keep one day each week as free as possible for catching up when you have fallen behind with something.This is one of those inevitable things in life that our carefully laid out plans will get disrupted by an emergency. Knowing you have a reasonably free day later in the week for catching up helps to keep ion track with the things we need to do. Finally, as a start-up business everything will be new and so you won't have any settled processes in place. It's important to be looking for the process for doing your work. I have a number of admin tasks to do each day. When I first began collecting the information, it would take me around ninety minutes each day. I focused on building the process and now, three or four years later, I still have the same admin tasks to do, but it takes me around twenty minutes to do. Because I have settled processes, I know how to start, where to look for the information and can do the work in a lot less time. If your projects are similar in nature—in my case creating or updating courses—you can develop checklists and processes there too. This makes doing project work a lot easier. You know where to start, have a reasonably good idea how long each part will take and you can build that time into your calendar. Essentially, it all boils down to giving yourself time each day and each week to look at what needs to be done and planning out when you will do the work. If you are not planning out when the work will get done, your brain will convince you that you don't have sufficient time—when you do—and that's where stress and anxiety will come from. Make sure you are planning the week. Identifying which project, or projects, you will work on each week. On a daily level, give yourself ten to fifteen minutes to plan the next day. What will be your priority the next day and make sure you have the time blocked out in your calendar so you know you have the time to work on it. I hope that has helped, Cara. Thank you for your question. And thank you to you too for listening. Don't forget, if you want to learn more about my brand new Goal Setting course, the links are in the show notes. It just remains for me now, to wish you all a very very productive week.
This is the second episode of our October series! In this one, Rachael discusses all things folklore and paranormal. She covers The Freetown State Forest, the Taunton State Hospital, and the legend of Pukwudgies (which culminates in a tantalizing discussing surrounding...strawberry bread? It'll all make sense in the end, trust me).There's mention of Big Foot (because how could there not be?), UFOs, and several different ghosts, each with very different personalities and methods of inducing fear.This is very likely our most unhinged episode thus far.

A family purchases a house in an affluent neighborhood and only three days later begins to receive eerie and threatening letters from someone who calls themselves "The Watcher". Kate did some great research on this one, and goes into the details of the case, the investigation, and theories (because, yup: it's still unsolved).

This is the first episode of our Bridgewater Triangle Series!!!Kate provides historical context for why many believe the Bridgewater Triangle is a hotspot of paranormal activity. She talks about the Native American land that the swamp is in, King Philip's War, and about a BUNCH of different rocks (these are cool, interesting rocks, we promise). Kate also delves into different theories for the origin of the mysterious inscriptions that are found on some of these rocks.Sources:1) “Hockomock: Place Where the Spirits Dwell” by Peter Tower2) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wampanoag3) https://openlibrary.org/books/OL26124680M/Haunted_Objects_Stories_Of_Ghosts_On_Your_Shelf4) https://web.archive.org/web/20071026061648/http://www.historyplace.com/specials/kingphilip.htm5) https://web.archive.org/web/20070527112525/http://www.boston.com/news/local/articles/2006/10/30/the_old_haunting_grounds/ 6) http://archive.boston.com/news/local/articles/2005/10/30/tales_from_the_swamp/https://web.archive.org/web/20171014083258/http://www.thebridgewatertriangle.com/2013/12/hockomock-swamp_2.html?m=1 7) http://www.strange-new-england.com/2015/10/22/ministers-rock/
54-year old Colonel Philip Shue left to go to work on the morning of April 16, 2003. He left an hour earlier than usual, at 5:30AM, in order to get a jumpstart on some paperwork. He made his wife, Tracy, coffee, kissed her, and said “I love you”. The next report of Shue is from two witnesses who saw him driving his vehicle on the highway, going around 60mph. After swerving from one lane to another, his car eventually hit a tree. When firefighters arrived on the scene, they noticed several oddities about this particular accident. First, Shue's shirt is ripped from his chest to his navel. Shue's nipples were cut off. There was an almost 6-inch slash on his chest, and he was missing part of his finger. Shue also had duct tape around both of his arms and ankles. The case was determined to be a suicide.Listen to this week's episode in order to find out why, for many people, this case is still unsolved.Sources:1) https://www.cbsnews.com/htdocs/pdf/BCME_autopsy.pdf 2) https://www.cbsnews.com/htdocs/pdf/first_warning_note.pdf 3) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0itSpglLimo 4) https://www.cbsnews.com/htdocs/pdf/psychological_autopsy.pdf 5)https://airforce.togetherweserved.com/usaf/servlet/tws.webapp.WebApp?ID=155997&cmd=ShadowBoxProfile&type=Person
In this episode we sit down with Seth Davis. Seth is Avram's Godson and founder of The Avram Davidson Universe. We listen to "The Third Sacred Well of the Temple" originally published in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, May 1965.
Christine opens up the episode with a new segment. Each week, we will be briefly reporting on a recent missing child case, as we all feel that it is important to spread awareness for cases that may not be getting the recognition they deserve.During the main segment this week, Kate tackles a couple of different hate crimes relating to the arsons of several Jewish-affiliated buildings. She also goes over some very interesting aspects of how hate crimes are charged and categorized. If someone commits a hate crime, is it also a hate crime if a person covers for them? Rachael (who is Jewish) leads an important discussion on acts of anti-semitism that she and others have faced.

In der ersten Geschichte hält eine Serie von Kindesentführungen eine Kleinstadt in Atem. Streifenpolizist Glenn ist zwar nicht direkt in den Fall involviert, kennt aber wie fast alle Bewohner der Stadt die groben Fakten. Als Glenn eines Tages mit seinem besten Freund Walt zum Angeln fährt, stößt der Polizist plötzlich auf eine Auffälligkeit, die er vorher nur aus dem Zusammenhang der Entführungsserie zu kennen schien. In der zweiten Geschichte geht es um einen gelangweilten Erbmillionär, der schon seit Jahren nicht mehr gearbeitet hat und ständig auf der Suche nach neuen Hobbys ist, um seine Zeit totzuschlagen. Seine Frau profitiert zwar vom Erbe ihres Mannes, doch läuft die Ehe alles andere als rosig. Eines Tages stehen in der Auffahrt des prunkvollen Anwesens plötzlich mehrere Bienenkästen, mit denen das Ehepaar offenbar unterschiedliche Pläne zu haben scheint.

Kate talks about the infamous 1892 murder case of Lizzie Borden's father and stepmother, which Lizzie was tried and acquitted for. We discuss the events in Lizzie's life leading up the murders, possible accomplices, multiple theories, and how gossip spreads through a small town. This one is infamous for a reason!Sources:1)https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lizzie_Borden2)https://web.archive.org/web/20140201220523/http://www.thelizziebordencollection.com/fall-river-history.php3)https://www.newspapers.com/clip/22543295/the-seattle-post-intelligencer/4)https://www.newspapers.com/clip/22529704/statesman-journal/5)https://www.newspapers.com/clip/22543087/the-boston-globe/
Christine starts off this episode talking about the disappearance of Cleashindra Hall, a smart, soon-to-be pre-med student who vanished after clocking out of her part-time job in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Twenty-eight years later, her case is still unsolved, and one particular individual remains a person of interest.Kate then talks about the Watts Family Murders, which took place in Frederick, Colorado in 2018. Chris Watts murdered his wife, who was 15 weeks pregnant, along with his two children. This is a huge case, but Kate delves into the small town aspects of it that aided in the investigation.
In the early hours of the morning, 12-year-old Christopher Pittman walks into his grandparent's room and shoots 4 times, killing both Joe and Joy Pittman before setting their house on fire. We discuss Christopher's difficult early childhood leading up to this moment, and analyze his legal team's "Zoloft defense", as Christopher had recently been made to switch from antidepressant Paxil to Zoloft and double his prescription dosage. He was allegedly experiencing severe side effects in the weeks leading up to the murders. So many factors add to the mix in this case, making you question what could have been if just one had been different.Sources:1) https://www.cbsnews.com/news/prescription-for-murder-13-04-2005/2) https://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/sertraline-oral-route/proper-use/drg-20065940 3) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUuAVO3nKTk4) https://murderpedia.org/male.P/p/pittman-christopher-opinion.htm5) https://public.doc.state.sc.us/scdc-public/inmateDetails.do?id=%2000307734
In this episode, Kate first investigates the serial killer Tony Costa, locally known in Massachusetts as the Cape Cod Cannibal. Tony Costa committed a series of murders in the late 1960s. Famous writer Kurt Vonnegut was intrigued by Costa, comparing him to Jack the Ripper. This case is still talked about today in the small town community in which it originated, and several books have been written about Costa which have been quite controversial...Next, Rachael covers the case of 17-year-old Maggie Long, who was burned in a fire in a burglary gone wrong. It was revealed that a physical altercation likely took place during this burglary between Maggie and her assailants. Recently, the FBI has explored the possibility that this was actually a hate crime. Maggie's case is still active, and a reward is being offered for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individuals responsible for her death.

This week, we discuss two cases that will make your stomach turn. First, Christine covers the case of Keiosha Marie Felix, a 15-year-old who went missing and was immediately labeled a "runaway" by police. Keiosha was last seen in the tiny town of Duson, Louisiana on April 30, 2012, where she went to visit her aunt with her 1-year-old daughter. A botched police investigation interferes heavily with this case.Next, Rachael covers the recent murder of Jonathan Amerault, who was murdered by a jealous husband by the name of Armando Barron. Armando believed that his wife, Britany, was having an affair with Jon, who was her co-worker. Armando ended up forcing Britany to decapitate Jon's body. Trigger warning for domestic violence on this one!

On this episode of Death By DVD we've gone on holiday by mistake. The 1987 British black comedy WITHNAIL & I is discussed at length! Possibly the quintessential British movie, join THE Linus Fitness-Centre & Harry-Scott as they pour a shot of lighter fluid and get into the politics of WITHNAIL & I. Two out-of-work actors -- the anxious, luckless Marwood (Paul McGann) and his acerbic, alcoholic friend, Withnail (Richard E. Grant) -- spend their days drifting between their squalid flat, the unemployment office and the pub. When they take a holiday "by mistake" at the country house of Withnail's flamboyantly gay uncle, Monty (Richard Griffiths), they encounter the unpleasant side of the English countryside: tedium, terrifying locals and torrential rain.This is an episode you DON'T wanna miss!
