The Case of the Mysterious Letter
Every great mystery begins with a first clue. For listener Hannah Robinson it was a series of letters in the mail…. letters from the AARP. But Robinson is just 37 years old; she’s decades away from retirement. She did have a stroke just a few months before the letters starting arriving. So she wondered: Did AARP somehow find out that she had a stroke? Were they using her medical data to sell her a membership? Or is this just a coincidence?

Last summer, Story Land threw "Nostalgia Night," an event that offered the chance for adults to revisit their childhood memories. Sam returned to both parks and reflected on what it means to pursue the past.
