118 – The Museum of Natural History – Phoenix, AZ

Play

On this week’s episode, Harley and Brett have to brave the heat to explore a beautiful desert city, Phoenix, AZ.

Phoenix is a thriving desert metropolis, the fifth most populous city in the country and is steeped in Native history.

We have a great talk with Katie Mullaly and J. Patrick Ohlde about The Museum of Natural History in Phoenix. Katie and Patrick are prolific Paranormal Authors and Investigators.

What is Sensory Replication and how does it apply to the field of the paranormal?

Does the museum come to life at night?

Why would a demon be stuck in a nightstand?

Who were the Hohokam people? Where did they go? Should we do a full show?

If you are tired of chasing ghosts through priceless historical artifacts, may we suggest Curious Nature? This is a science and natural history emporium with an emphasis on the strange and fantastical….ohhh and you can buy creepy taxidermy stuff.

Chino Bandido Takee Outee may have the strangest coolest menu ever. #travelodditiesapproved

The Top 5 may contain the secret to enlightenment or we could just be Rick-Rollin’ you.

112 – Mount Holly Cemetery – Little Rock, AR

Play

Harley has come down from the mountain top and joined Brett for a trip to The Natural State.

On this episode we discuss the haunted Mount Holly Cemetery in Little Rock, Arkansas. What happens when you start moving people’s graves?

We have a great interview with Linda Howell, author of Haunted Little Rock and Life At Cedar Meadows Farm, is an independent tour guide and owner of the tour company, Haunted Tours of Little Rock.
She starred in the national television show A & E Biography, My Ghost Story and assisted Ghost Hunters in acquiring a location for their show, Ghost Friends Forever.

As location coordinator for the movie, The Trial of David O. Dodd, she was instrumental in acquiring historic locations and props.

She is a paranormal researcher, investigator and history advisor to the Arkansas Ghost Catchers.

This oddity is spooky, but if you don’t like spooky, then you may want to check out Pinnacle Mountain.

No Episode of the Travel Oddities Podcast would be complete without a place to grab a bite, and since we are a travel show, we couldn’t pass up a the All Aboard Restaurant & Grill…they deliver your food to your table via model trains!

108 – The Haunted Bush House Inn – Index WA

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.

106 – Haunted Green-Wood Cemetery – Brooklyn, NY

Play

On this week’s episode, Brett and Amy get their subway passes out to explore one of the biggest tourist attractions during the last turn of the century and apparently one of the biggest spectral tourist attractions today.

Welcome to Brooklyn, NY and the Haunted Green-Wood Cemetery. With a population in the millions and annual deaths of about 50,000, you may wonder where do they go(literally and figuratively), and we have some answers.

This oddity is spooky, but don’t let that sway you from this … it’s part of the five bouroughs.

If you want to get a bird’s eye view of the area, may we suggest Deno’s Wonder Wheel? This iconic NYC Landmark is almost a hundred yeats old and has a PERFECT safety record.

Amy explains why she is too good to eat Katz’s Deli. You know, the 150 year old shining example of a classic Jewish deli?

If you are a pinball wizard, there may be some incriminating entries on this week’s TOP 5.

Harley and Amy are traveling to swamp country, to soak in an oddity that has all the makings of a terrifying thrill ride. Welcome to Prattville, AL, home of the Specters of Bear Creek Swamp.

The phenomenon in this area go way back into the past and there is something for everybody. From ghosts to bigfoot and chupacabra to haunted dolls…this place really has it all.

There is definitley some weirdness in the swamps her, but Prattville is older than the state of Alabama and there are activities for any taste. This is a road trip that you have to make.

If you don’t want to trudge through the swamp, you could always take part in their annual 4th of July cardboard boat race.

The Travel Oddities Podcast restaurant pick is a place called Fat Boy’s BBQ Ranch because Amy’s diet has given her a one-=track-appetite.

The Top 5…Did you know that Alabama has a state biscuit? Do they have state gravy? Listen to the show already!

103 – Hauntings of Hunting Island – Beaufort, SC

Play

Amy and Brett are taking a road trip to one of the South’s best small towns. Beaufort, SC is located on Port Royal Island and has more activities than you could handle in a dozen vacations. We love the outdoor activities(except Amy….she hates fun), but that is not the draw for this particular show.

There is a haunted light house and people are dying to check it out…get it? We have all of the creepy details and you have to check it out.

Have you ever wondered who is the King of Kazoos? Well we have you covered. Kazoobie Kazoos has sold millions of kazoos and you can tour their facility.

If you love seafood, you are going to love Gullah Grub.

The Top 5 will knock your legs off…at least one of them.

OS – Guardian Lions of Route 66 – Amboy, CA

Play

Join Amy and Brett for a trip along Route 66. Four miles east of Roy’s Motel and Café sign, you can see two large white statues. These solid marble Chinese guardian lions, are spaced a quarter-mile apart in the empty desert.

How did these marble beasts end up here?

These “foo dogs” or Chinese guardian lions are standing about five feet high and elevated on pedestals.
They were first sighted in 2013, and nobody has ever claimed responsibility.

OS – Grave of Bert Barrett’s Left Arm – San Jose, CA

Play

Okay, it’s Monday and this is not a full show. We know that it is a little underhanded, but some of us are all thumbs and we fumbled the regular show. We try to take a hands-on approach to our release schedule, but even with all hands on deck the glitches got the upper hand on us. With that being said, you should’t bite the hand that feeds you because forgiveness goes hand in hand with happiness. On the other hand, you still have an Odd Spot to get you through the day. Episode 102 will be on hand next Monday, so we don’t have any blood on our hands.

This particular odd spot should be an armful of fun. Brett and Amy discuss the grave of Bert Barrett’s left arm in San Jose, California. How do you get a partial grave? What did they do with the rest of him? We will attempt to answer all of the important questions!

It might be playing into our hand, but you should totally listen to this show now!

100 – Haunted Hot Lake Hotel – La Grande, OR

Play

Harley and Amy are traveling to the west coast, to soak in an oddity that has all the makings of a terrifying thrill ride. Welcome to La Grande, OR, home of the haunted Hot Lake Hotel.

The haunted Hot Lake Hotel has a very long and storied past that could not result in anything other than a gaping tear into the void.

This hotel may be haunted but since it is nestled in one of the most beautiful places in the country, you may not be able to resist a road-trip to check it out.

With over two million acres of national parks in the area, there are activities for everyone….even Amy.

We discuss Wallowa lake which is a must if you are the least bit interested in the outdoors and gorgeous vistas.

The Travel Oddities Podcast restaurant pick is a place called 10 Depot Street, and apparently they are known for their Lamb Meatballs….so you know we are not going to make any jokes about that.

The Top 5 from Oregon includes a place called Whorehouse Meadows in Harney County…so really why are you not listening to the show already?
