Ep 591 - The Orchid Thief, by Susan Orlean
This week: a non-fiction book that sometimes reads a lot like fiction, The Orchid Thief is only a little about the titular thief and a LOT about Florida and its history and its denizens. Plus, "orchidelirium," the part of the 19th century where the English aristocracy would just go wild for these bad boys.
Our theme music was composed by Nick Lerangis.
