84 – Meriwether Lewis Conspiracy – Hohenwald, TN


Amy, Brett and Harley have been scheming and plotting lots of new material and formats for the show. On this week’s episode, Harley and Amy skip the travel by sea and opt for the sketchier Natchez Trace, a dangerous trail in a very remote area of Tennessee…or at least it used to be during the late 1700’s. Now the town of Hohenwald, TN is like a step back in time with a diverse mix of sites all packed into a small area – an Amish settlement and General Store, award-winning wineries, working Alpaca and horse farms, a 1960’s era commune and streams, waterfalls, and beautiful forests.

We cover the conspiracy around the death of famed explorer, Meriwether Lewis of Lewis & Clark fame.

The oddity of this conspiracy is that it seems to have been largely ignored by history

The views from the Natchez Trace are incredible and the entire area is steeped in history.

If you are planning a trip to visit the grave of Lewis, there is plenty of other things to do in the area…so make a few days of the trip.

No Episode of the Travel Oddities Podcast would be complete without a place to grab a bite, and you cannot beat a place with a name like the Junkyard Dog Steakhouse. Warning: They do not serve elephant.

56 – Bobby Mackeys Hell Gate – Wilder, KY


Hop in the pickup with Harley,Brett, and Josh and “head” on down to Bobby Mackey’s Music world in Wilder, KY. Where they have a date at Hell’s Gate. Heads will roll and blood will spill as they attempt to uncover the mystery surrounding this infamous haunt. This haunted honky tonk offers more spirits than a bottle of Kentucky Bourbon. Ghostly cowboys, pregnant poltergeists, and guy named COOOOOORAL.
Can you hang with the legend or will you end up on the killing floor. Brett sends out a heartfelt apology to Kentuckians around the world and promises not to do that “one thing EVER again”
In The News- There is SNOW in the forecast. Fishermen reel in a Kilo of Blow and immediately test it for quality assurance. We have audio of the Disco Dust recovery and all the deets of the deep Sea Booger Sugar rescue.
