Season 2, Episode 5: Shutterbug (17 min)

This week’s story touches on the subject of trust, those who are trustworthy, and those who put on the mask of trust. Be careful with whom you share your secrets and interests, even if you crave the company of another. Today, we follow our shutterbug, a curious and creative young man with a penchant for photography who loved to shoot his favorite subject – a single, lone dead ash tree. Sit and listen. Though I must warn you, this particular story deals with some potentially triggering material.
