Unsolved Mysteries Episode Nine: The Murders of Fr. Reynaldo Rivera and Fr. John Kerrigan / The Lucky Rock
Show Notes

This week the Rude and the Prude dive into Catholicism and the unsolved murders of Fr. Reynaldo Rivera and Fr. John Kerrigan. They'll also discuss, much to Brown's dismay, Steve and Patty Johnson's encounter with a strange rock that they believed turned their luck around. Easter wants to know Fr. Rivera's strength training plan and Brown, a lover of all rocks... is ready to never talk about the mysterious boulder in Washington again.
