Episode notes

Towering pine trees, ancient granite cliffs, crystal clear water, cannibalistic pioneers... wait, what? Today we travel to Jeremy's favorite place on Earth: Lake Tahoe, California. Strap on your snow goggles and come along as we cover the macabre past and enchanting present of this alpine paradise with more ghosts than you can shake a ski pole at.
