In this episode of The Box of Oddities, we're talking about the Aghori Sadhus. Now, we know what you're thinking. "What the heck is an Aghori Sadhu?" Well, strap in Freaks, because this is gonna get weird. The Aghori Sadhus are a group of Hindu holy men who have some, let's say, unconventional religious practices.

Next, we're switching gears and diving into the inspiring life of Sarah Rector, a bonafide badass. Sarah was born in 1902 in Oklahoma and, through a strange twist of fate, became one of the wealthiest black people in America at the age of 11. That's right, 11 years old and rolling in the dough. But it wasn't just about the money. Sarah used her wealth and influence to fight for civil rights and make a difference in her community.
