33

33 is a magic number… On the 33rd episode of the Travel Oddities Podcast, Brett and Harley had to break out Google maps to find the Cursed Pyramid Lake of Reno Nevada.

This legend has it all. The story starts with the Paiute Tribe, then we added in some evil settlers, a mermaid, some devil babies, a serpent, a curse and some pyramids just for fun.

Is the curse real?
Is the Pope an Atheist?
Where have Brett and Harley hidden Eric’s body?…hint there is water involved.
Is Bad Mother Trucker allowed to drunk dial?
Are there aliens involved at all?….nope, sorry.
All this and more on a Full Moon aligned Summer Solstice of the Travel Oddities Podcast.

Ep32

Holy places of the Lourds, Batman! On today’s episode Brett and Harley take a pilgrimage to Chimayo New Mexico, to have their heels healed…not really. We will be giving you the dirt on El Santuario de Chimayo.

According to the masses, but not validated by the Pope, this church has the ability to heal the sick, mend the lame and help the blind to see again. There will be mystical crosses and blessed dirt for everyone.

We also discuss the Tewa Tribal legend that predates this church. It would be a sin to skip this episode, as we resurrect another hidden treasure of the Odd.

Bobby Brown makes our news segment, and it has nothing to do with Browntown.

Don’t crucify Eric, as he is currently on a vision quest and will hopefully have found his spirit animal before next weeks show.

Put on your wading boots because Brett, Eric and Harley are taking you on a trip to Browntown. Today we are discussing the legend that is the Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp in Browntown SC.

Is this cryptid really terrorizing people in the swamps around Johnsonville SC?

Tall tales often involve a big fish, but this mystery is all reptile.

Can anybody get through this show without pointing out the names of these towns?

Is Brett going to wait until the skeptics section to call bs?

Was BMT abducted by aliens?

Put on your hard hat and strap on your work boots as Brett, Harley and Eric discuss the haunted Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, Alabama.

The furnaces have been a ghost hotbed in the area, with residents believing that the tortured spirits of factory workers that lost their lives while working there still roam the halls. The furnace opened in 1882 and reports of apparitions started as soon as 1887.

Now, the furnaces are a national landmark, museum and concert venue, and paranormal activity from the site are still being reported today. It’s getting hot in this haunted factory. Is this where the final scene of T2 took place? I want to believe.

29 – Melon Heads Cryptids – Saugatuck MI

28

Take a walk down a dark country road with Harley and Brett as they investigate the legend of the Melon Heads of Saugatuck MI. This cryptid is so grotesque that Eric literally got sick and had to go home. These creatures are said to be three to four feet tall cannibals that live in the forest in and around Saugatuck. Just imagine if an Oompa Loompa and the Toxic Avenger had a baby, and that baby had a baby with those creepy “hills have eyes” people…..then you would end up with one of these freaks.

Are these creatures the result of a mad scientist or are they mutants that didn’t get a scholarship into Professor Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters? Is Saugatuck where the Dover Demon retired with his wife and kids? Are these little ankle biters the product of local lore and legend or are they really terrorizing this small Michigan town?

Frogmen

Are you feeling froggy? Join the boys on this cryptid caper as they attempt to uncover the legend of the “Loveland Frogmen”

The Loveland Frogmen were first reported in 1955 in the tiny town of Loveland, OH. They were described as humanoid creatures with the face of a frog. They have green leathery skin and webbed hands. They were also reported to have held up a bar-like device that emitted sparks.

Are they overgrown lizards, aquatic aliens fueling their UFO, the first wave of the reptoid invasion or are they the product of an overactive imagination?

Brett swears on a stack of Illuminati bibles not to call BS in the first five minutes of the show.

Avoiding the ghosts is hard to do, when they haunt the only way in or out of your town. This appears to be the case at Emily’s Bridge in Stowe, VT…. where you can check out anytime you like, but you can NEVER leave.

Today Brett, Eric and Harley explore the many sides of this mystery. Is Emily a ghost, a vengeful spirit, a poltergeist or just “a bunch ‘a BS?
Will bet call BS or will he dive off the deep end? Will Brett have another “episode?” Is this a tulpa or an actual haunting?

We also cover some other uncovered bridges in the news.
