It’s tax season. That time of year when everyone’s pockets get a little lighter.
To help you through this rough patch, we here at the Lost and Found Show offer you the “Wallets & Purses” edition, designed with your fiscal needs in mind. It comes fully-stocked with amazing storytellers, brain-enhancing trivia, and prizes to inspire jealousy in all your broke-ass friends.
Prepare yourself for tales and trivia about Time Square muggers, penny-pinching grandmas, fanny-packed tourists, Hell’s Angels, a carnival of freakish purses, and the strange saga behind the iWallet.
All of this can be yours at no charge. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen. It’s FREE (*booze sold separately).
