RW-2: “Extraction” by Jessica McHugh



Let’s REWIND! You can never have too much Jessica McHugh!

Dig this one we dug up from Season 2. This is the story that made your current host, Daniel Foytik a devoted listener and fan of the show. This Wicked, saucy, funny, naughty, gross, and scary as hell  episode hits on so many points we can’t help but love it. Enjoy a truly Wicked tale that goes in a direction you’re not expecting. Pulled from a hidden shelf where the Librarian keeps his favorite episodes, and ready to spin, it’s “Extraction.”

Just for extra fun, our rewinds feature an opening that pays homage to classic shows from The Golden Age of Radio that inspired The Wicked Library.
