136 – Demon Leaper – Louisville, KY


On ep 136 of The Travel Oddities Podcast, look out Louisville! The boys are back in town and this time they’re hot on the trail of the Louisville Demon Leaper. This time around Brett promises to keep his halves to minimum.

As anyone who visits soon discovers, Louisville is one of the most uniquely authentic destinations on the planet. Welcome to “Bourbon City!”
Yes, Bourbon is a spirit that comes in a glass, but it’s also a spirit that defines their culture and compassion, their arts and parks, their creative energy. It’s this same spirit that continued and created Louisville itself – a city that combines heritage with innovation, authenticity with originality, quirkiness with friendliness in a way that’s completely unique.

While this isn’t their first trip to Louisville and definitely not their first cryptid, this may in fact be a Travel Oddities first, though..a Gargoyle. That’s right, The Louisville Demon Leaper has been terrorizing residents and onlookers at the Walnut Baptist Church for years. A creature believed to be a cross between a Moth Man and some even say Batman?

If gargoyles and Batmen aren’t in the itinerary then you definitely need to check out Bardstown Road. It’s the Vegas strip of the South without deviant behavior and showgirls. Although there may in fact be show girls. There is soooo much to do on Bardstown that they could hardly fit it in. Some deep cuts and choice cuts were made but you’re bound to find something to do and eat.

Speaking of eating on Bardstown. This week they hit another national treasure, Jack Fry’s. This gem dates back to the ‘30s and is a must when you are in the area.

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.
