Brett Manzer –
As a quintessential child of the 80’s, Brett grew up in the heart of Oklahoma City. He is an avid VHS collector and spends his free time trolling swap meets and thrift shops in search of the ultimate find. His second passion, t-shirts, can be seen on his personal Facebook page #tshirttime.
Brett is a broadcasting school graduate who has spent his career on the airwaves of Oklahoma radio. As a natural comedian, Brett’s quick whit, spot on impressions and racy commentary test the limits of our PG-13 rating sometimes but never fails to get a laugh.
Brett is our resident horror officinado and loves to discuss, ad nauseum, the ins and outs of all things horror.
His favorite oddities are ghosts and werewolves. Like most kids from the 80’s, Werewolf movies were his absolute favorites. He was about 11 or 12 when he came across a paperback book at a local thrift store called, “How to Become a Werewolf”. It gave the history of Lycans from early Europe and abroad and it gave detailed instructions on rituals to become a werewolf. So at one point-if the ritual took-you could expect two men dressed in white with white wide brimmed hats to appear at your door. Brett would have dreams about them coming to visit him. It should be noted that he’s combed the outter limits of the internet to find that book……to know avail…..
Brett’s idea of the Ultimate Roadtrip would be Travel Oddities International…….with Tom Cruise. Seriously…….
Born in Kentucky and raised on the road, Amy’s Gypsy hearted parents finally settled in Oklahoma in the early 90’s where she has since called home.
Amy joined the crew as the official Twitter Maven in 2016 before quickly moving up the ladder to become the Social Media Goddess. Her current title is a perpetual work in progress but ‘Queen of Damn Near Everything ‘ does have a nice ring…..
While Brett and Harley love hittin the road at a moments notice, Amy-as our resident researcher and book nerd-prefers well planned adventures. Preferably involving air conditioning, dusty old books, reliable wifi and no bugs!!
Amy’s favorite topics are those involving historical mysteries, cemeteries and ghosts.
Amy has worked in guest relations and marketing for over 25 years but spends her free time (when not slaving away at the proverbial Travel Oddities research grindstone) surrounded by a menagerie of fur babies, oddball friends, crazy neighbors and a very understanding and patient wife. Her personal research projects include the genealogical mapping of the Hatfield/McCoy lineage and trying to piece together ‘that damn Cummins family ‘ one historical document at a time.
Amy’s other accomplishments include ordaination as a Dudeist Priestess by the Church of the Latter Day Dude, Design and Marketing Manager for Glitter Dame Designs, Project Manager and researcher for Branched Out Genealogy, Lead Marketing and Project Manager for New Breeds MMA, hostess of the Second Saturday Society, blogger and former member of the Monster Squad (yes, it was a thing).
