The Final Aftershow

February 6, 2018

In the final Aftershow, Josh, Sara, and Jess (The Beth Chronicles & Murder Road Trip) listen to a rough draft of the final episode (for the first time), starring Josh as both Mark and Ellen. 

In this episode: You'll get to listen to the Mark letters that didn't make it into the finale. We try to solve the most important mystery: whatever happened to all those dead fish? Additionally, did Sara find Hal? We laugh, we cry, we talk about what's to come.
