Stiff Investigations - EP 18 "Double Down on Danger!"

OK this is also a bit different - Stiff Investigations is a "detective radio play" with stand-Up comedy by Nicholas Rouley who I like, so if your looking for something a bit eccentric, this could be just for you.
Tonight!

Seven performers (storytellers, readers, comedians, actors, etc) each take on one of the seven sins and tells a story in theme of that sin.
