This week, we discuss one of Northern California’s most enduring mysteries. In February of 1878c five friends attended a basketball game at UC Davis. After a great evening watching their favorite team win, something caused their lives to take an unexpected turn. It’s what caused that turn that remains a mystery. Join us as we explore the evidence, stories, and theories of the Yuba County Five.
DEFINITELY A MANTID ATTACK!
