115 – Huggin’ Molly – Abbeville, AL

Play

On this week’s episode, Harley and Brett fight the spring snow to explore Abbeville, Alabama, you know….the Yellowhammer State, the “Heart of Dixie” or the “CottonState”.

We discuss a creepy haunting, phantom, cryptid or something called Huggin’ Molly. How scary can it be with a name like Huggin’ Molly?

This oddity may or may not scare you, but don’t let that keep you from traveling here. The town is like a time-capsule.

The Statue of Leroy Brown, the famous fish? Yes we are telling fish stories and ours is bigger than yours.

Brett spends some time explaining his theories on hugs and he is offering free hugs from the back of his panel van. So come one, come all…

No Episode of the Travel Oddities Podcast would be complete without a place to grab a bite. Huggin’ Molly’s restaurant obviously has been listening to our show. They have the lore and they built a store! If you run into the propriators…..tell them we accept cash or card.

The Top 5 was instrumental in the completion of this episode.

Specials thanks to Logan for the beautiful feedback and for sharing his story.

Yes, we admit it….we were originally biased against Pittsburgh, PN, but we have seen the light! Join us as we explore one of the coolest and livable(?) cities in the country!

Pittsburgh is the 63rd-largest city in the U.S, a tech mecca, and a must-see destination.
Find out more about one of the “Best Places to Travel.

We have all the inside information on Randyland, a place Anthony Bourdain said is essential for the “Perfect Day in Pittsburgh”.

Brett has some deep breakthroughs about his youth in the Catholic Church. Apparently they are perfect for renovating into world class restaurants.

109 – Lalaurie Mansion – New Orleans, LA

Play

On this week’s episode, Harley and Brett are gearing up for Mardi Gras in the most unique city in America, New Orleans, Louisiana.

Harley is a year older and apparently the light is fading fast…you know, because he is 44.

We have a great interview with Lyn Gibson, aka The Twisted Southern Horror Queen about Madame Lalaurie and the Lalaurie Mansion. Madame Lalaurie might have been the sickest person alive at the time.

New Orleans is one of the world’s most fascinating cities – it’s home to a truly unique melting pot of cultures, and we explore some of the more unusual aspects.

We found a way to get a real behind-the-scenes look at New Orleans Mardi Gras at Mardi Gras World.

Harley and Brett never stop scouring a town until we find something awesome to eat…and we found the fat dude at BigCheezy at Henry’s uptown Bar. This place takes the grilled cheese to a whole new level.

The Travel Oddities Top Five is full of music and good times, just like New Orleans, LA.

Play

On this week’s episode, Harley and Brett get “high” into the mountains to explore one of the most beautiful places in the US, Index, WA.

We discuss the The Haunted Bush House. This is not a reference to a haunted marijuana grow house and we do not believe that it is haunted by George W.

This oddity is spooky, but don’t let that sway you from this gorgeous wildlife mountains.

The views are breathtaking and the outdoorsy fun is dialed up to eleven, and we have a Travel Oddities first with the other activity.

No Episode of the Travel Oddities Podcast would be complete without a place to grab a bite, and we found the COOLEST place ever. Don’t miss this restaurant….Jesus is making the chicken!

The Top 5 is a little squatchy, but watch what you say or you could end up in the slammer.

98 – Haunted Ortega Highway – Lake Elsinore, CA

Play

Happy Monday, Odd Squad! On this super spooky episode of the Travel Oddities Podcast, Brett and Harley have partially recovered from an electrically charged ESP test just in time for a trip down the Haunted Ortega Highway in Lake Elsinore, California.

Highway 74 or the Haunted Ortega Highway has claims of hauntings and many other odd sightings, and since it has seen more than its fair share of death, it’s no wonder why it is considered one of the most haunted places in California. From phantom clowns to crazed gnomes to the truly unspeakable, this stretch of road has something for every paranormal thrill seeker.

If you find that you are brave enough to take this highway, the spoils are more than worth the trip. Lake Elsinore, CA is a beautiful resort town nestled in the Santa Ana Mountains with breathtaking views and activities for every taste.

If you need some assistance to make it past the paranormal, the boys share the recipe for a witch’s bottle. We cannot guarantee the effectiveness, but we can guarantee it is really gross.

Road trips, even terrify road trips on haunted highways are our jam, but if you want to skip that piece, maybe you can “jump” past the obstacles. Skydive Elsinore is world renown of its thermals…so dive on in.

If breakfast all day is more your speed, we have you covered. The Lookout Roadhouse has been voted the best breakfast in town, and the patio offers mountain top views that will blow you away.

Listen to the show already, I am sick of typing!
