131 – Demon House – Hartford City, IN

Play

On this week’s episode, Brett and Harley are monkeying around in Hartford City, IN to check out the Demon House known locally as The Monroe House.

Harftford City, Indiana was an 1800’s boom town that outlasted their neighbors by the strength of the sticky note. If you like hiking trails, you are going to love this little city.

The Monroe House is a realtor’s nightmare and will probably guest star in your nightmares as well. This demon infested house has been running off residents and even hardened paranormal investigators for years. Does the Orkin Man spray for demons?

Would you spend a night in the demon house?

What’s in the basement?

What is the scariest thing to hear on an EVP?

If you don’t want to solve the mystery of the Monroe House, maybe you should check out the Ft Wayne Children’s Zoo. This Zoo is less than an hour away from Hartford City in Ft Wayne, IN, and has some truly unique and fun activities especially for the kids.

We stop in at Ivanhoe’s Ice Cream and Sandwich Shoppe for one of their one hundred flavors of ice cream and Harley screams at another bad review.

Find out how to become a member of the 100 Club. Hint: You do not have to send money to Pat Robertson.

125 – Odon Fire Poltergeist – Odon IN

Play

On episode 125, Harley and Brett have a most excellent adventure exploring Odon, Indiana.

Odon may be small but it has quite a few things to offer the bachelor on the move. Odon has a two thirds female population…

The Odon Fire Poltergeist is a most baffling mystery and the town of Odon has haunted by the tale since the 1940s.
What could cause a house to catch fire over twenty times in a day in front of numerous witnesses? A G.D. Fire Poltergeist!

How can you deal with a poltergeist?

Do the movies have it right when it comes to ghosts?

Want something a little darker? How about a cavernous canoe ride in the Bluespring Caverns?

We cannot vouch for the cooking skills of the Odon Fire Poltergeist, but Smokin Jim’s BBQ knows what to do with the flames!

122 – Puckwudgies – Anderson IN

Play

On this week’s episode, Harley is back from his trip to Florida and he and Brett use the frequent flyer miles to visit Anderson, Indiana.

Brett got to revisit one of his worst fears…little things.

Puckwudgies are knee high(an average knee high) forest spirits with a taste for blood and apparently the Mounds State Park has been overrun.

What is Puckwudgie?

What can you do to increase your chances of a Puckwudgie encounter?

Do Puckwudgies like Skittles?

From festivals, museums, hiking, and theatre to shopping, racing, and a casino, Anderson, IN has something for everyone all year long. There is a reason that it is called the Pittsburgh on White River.

Puckwudgies weren’t scary enough? There is more…Indy Scream Park is rated one of the scariest Halloween events in the country.

You don’t have to have your black belt to eat at Ninja of Japan, but maybe something with an elastic waist might help.

The Top 5 is not Muppet friendly.

87 – Beast of Busco – Churubusco, IN

Play

While Harley’s away, Brett and Amy will play. We test the bounds of our PG rating.

On this week’s episode, Brett and Amy take you into the Indiana backwoods to look for the elusive Beast of Busco in Churobusco Indiana.

Known as Turtle Town USA, Churobusco has one of the longest running cryptozoological festivals in America- “Turtle Days.” held annually in June.

Seems like a lot of hub bub for a little ole turtle, but this legendary beast is bigger than a dining room table and weighs more than 500 pounds.

Access to the Beast of Busco site of the sightings is on private property today. “No trespassing” signs are posted, so please check out the town, the local street art and the giant turtle shell at the local McDonald’s, but be respectful of the actual property.

We discuss Little Turtle, AKA Michikinikwa, Miami people chief and military leader.

No Episode of the Travel Oddities Podcast would be complete without a place to grab a bite, and we found a magical burger landmark decorated in clowns. Lots of clowns. Magic Wand Restaurant famous Indiana landmark that is also a family friendly diner. Of course they serve a mean Turtle sundae.

The Top 5 just gets weirder as time goes by…maybe it’s just Brett.

Cryptid Con is coming up very soon, so be sure to check their site if you are going to be in the area.
