Season 4 of Appalachian Mysteria will be a little different than our previous seasons.


We're asking you, the listeners, to suggest cases that you think are important to the


region. We'll be selecting stories that we think are a good fit, and crediting those


who bring our attention to them, each story will be at least one full episode in length.


What makes for a good story? Lots of things, some of which you hopefully already appreciate


on the show, twists and turns, aspects of the unexplained, and the less it's been reported


on, the more interesting it is, of course. If you've got an Appalachian mystery, send


it our way. We set up an email address just for you at mysterious suggestions at gmail.com.


That email address again is mysterious suggestions at gmail.com. Help us make season 4 awesome.
