Jason Dinges Lost Rhetoric Leave a Comment

Animal Lovers Rejoice! We’ve got the 1st ever Pet-centric & wholesome (but still weird as hell) episode of the show.  Suzanne Hogan from the band NATURE BOYS & the podcast A PEOPLE’S HISTORY OF KANSAS CITY joins me to tell the story of Jim The Wonder Dog.  He truly was wonderful.  A mysterious Llewellyn Setter that, during the Depression Era 20’s & 30’s, wowed crowds with marvelous feats of out of this world genius.  He could not only find the girl wearing the red dress, or the pastor, or doctor in the room…he could also find cars after being shown the license plate number, take commands in morse code & many different written languages, identify trees by species, predict Kentucky Derby & World Series winners & well…just make people happy.  We not only discuss his life but the possibilities of where he came from & if there was a missed opportunity to learn more from him while he graced us with his presence on Earth.
