S04E05: Metal detecting, geocaching, and digging up stuff in your own backyard!
It’s digging in the dirt and tromping through the woods season! Come along with us while Haley contemplates metal detecting, breaking the law, and digging up her basement, and Natali goes on a fantastic geocaching and letterboxing adventure (and also partakes in some light botanical thievery).
Note: We had a slight Mercury-in-retrograde-related sound kerfuffle. Some of Haley’s audio might sound a bit echoey.
