We're cooking up a new season of Endless Thread as we speak, dear listeners. But in the meantime, we realized we could probably all use a "snack" to hold us over. In this episode, we hear about a Redditor who created a fake press pass and found himself in a war zone, and another who accidentally assembled an army of crows.
Original music in this episode by Paul Vaitkus.
- Ben's story from r/OldSchoolCool (now deleted): Circa 1992 - I decided to see what war was truly like. At 21 I made a fake press pass for a fake newspaper and pretended to be a real journalist. I was too dumb to understand the risks and too convincing to be denied. The UN put me on an aid flight out of Zagreb into the besieged Sarajevo by redditor u/TJH48932
