HEX - File 0096 - Bette-Jean's Crystal Cattle - Pt.2

Season 3 | Episode 96
52m | Apr 21, 2023

In this three-part episode our hosts, Cayla, Nathan and Halli take a look at three cases of intrigue:

  • Bette-Jean Masters: On Sunday July 3rd 1960, Edna Bette-Jean Masters, a 21 month old disappeared without a trace from the small logging community of Red Lake, British Columbia, Canada. It has been over 60 years, and yet we're still no closer to figuring out what happened 
  • Feral Cattle: While listening to the book Islands of Abandonment by Cal Flyn, Nathan was reminded of the crazy world of wild Cattle. Cal takes a trip to the island of Swona in northern Scotland and encounters the local herd which she gives us insights about in her book, but did you know that there are multiple herds of wild cattle all over the world? Nathan takes us to a few of these places.
  • Failed Products: NewProductWorks is a collection of thousands of consumer products from around the world (over 140,000 by an account from 2017). But it's not all brand empowerment and new design ideas. The warehouse also serves as a cautionary tale, that even brands can fail, and fail big time. Anyone remember Crystal Pepsi? How about toaster eggs?
