Pitch a tent and tip -toe through Boggy Creek with Brett and Harley as they travel to Fauke Arkansas with a Beast of an Oddity and thats just the Monster Mart. On this weeks episode we visit Fauke, Arkansas and investigate the story behind the 1972 cult classic “The Boggy Creek Monster” with the man who literally wrote the book on the ‘The Beast” with “The Beast of Boggy Creek “.Crypto legend, author, producer and musician ; Lyle Blackburn. Gather around the campfire as Lyle takes you on a guided tour of Fauke and tells you what stories inspired him as a child and what stories still give him the chills to this very day. We talk about how a little hole in the wall Oddity shop became a “Monster Quest” of a road trip destination.
So pack up the Henderson’s and strap in for the long haul…. Cause Travel Oddities snagged Lyle Blackburn Ya’ll.
Our news story this week comes from Futurism Magazine. Can scientists generate power that will last long after the robots have taken over? Are Nuclear Diamonds actually forever? Researchers from some fancy college with two names seem to think so.
