What do you do when you're out in the field for a podcast episode and a kitten comes mewing up to you in the middle of the road? Drop everything and take care of said kitten, right? Right?!

S3: Cleo's Ferry Museum & Nature Trail

For the last hoorah of Season 3, we invite some friends to join us on a trip to Melba to explore a place that specializes in the #perfectlyquirky. Content warning: this episodes contains mentions of peacocks, mannequins, Albert Einstein and sounds of a real life pump organ.

S3: State Street Shops

How is it that we're nearly done with Season Three and we have yet to visit a place on State Street in Boise? We're seriously embarrassed. So, to make up for lost time, we visited a whole strip.

S3: Boise Acupuncture Co-Op

By now, everyone probably understands the concept of acupuncture. But what about an acupuncture co-op? What goes on there? How big are the needles really and what does it mean to "sleep with strangers?" We find out.

S3: Broadway Tattoo Tour

Last season we explored a handful of vape shops within a few miles of each other. This season, we upped the ante: tattoo shops within less than a mile of each other. How do they differentiate themselves? How do they compete? And let's just say this field trip permanently changed us (well, one of us), if you know what we mean.

S3: Ozone Condom Shop

We really thought we knew what we were getting ourselves into on this one, but boy were we wrong—in a good way! Sure, you can buy condoms here, but what you'll really get is a lesson in intimate wellness. And we could all use more of that.

S3: Hap Tallman

We find our way into a shop that is frequented by bikers and rodeo queens, and specializes in leather work and hat shaping. Vocab terms to know this episode: roughy, bridal, britches, and cooler races down the hill. Oh, and LD leaves with a new pair of shoes.

S3: Double Decker Espresso & Tower Grill

What do an airport restaurant and a two-story mobile coffee shop have in common? Not much, if you don't count the quality food and original atmosphere. But we do count that kind of stuff around here, so trust us when we say these places are worth a visit.

S3: Crone's Cupboard

Filled to the brim with dragons, goddesses, cauldrons, and incense, Crone's Cupboard is a place for explorers and believers alike. And spoiler alert: a crone is not a small elf that lives in a cupboard.

S3: Roots Zero Waste Market

If built-in bulk sections get you excited or clamshell plastics give you headaches, we think you're going to like this new kind of grocery store in town.
