Ep. 116: The Big Depression: Lasseter's Lost Reef

Oh narr! It may not be a leprechaun, but someone is out for gold this St. Patrick’s Day! Emma tells Shannon about the legendary story of Lasseter and his reef in the middle of the Australian outback. Is there really a huge gold deposit just waiting to be uncovered? Was Lasseter the only one who ever found it, and will it ever be found again?
