Episode #18: R&R / How to Care for Hyacinths / Fate and Starlight / The Man Who Shot Stonewall Jackson

This four-part episode focuses on stories of war and combat and the various effects it has on the psyche. With Memorial Day right around the corner, we figured it was the perfect time to run these stories, some of which are written by veterans. Claude Smith ("R&R") leads off the episode, followed by Clayton Bradshaw ("How to Care for Hyacinths"), Christine Estopare ("Fate and Starlight"), and Gary Beck ("The Man Who Shot Stonewall Jackson"). As a warning to our listeners, all but one of our stories grapples with suicide in one way or another and deal with some mature content and themes.
