91 – Were-otter – Sitka, AK

Play

We’re taking a trip to the seaside town of Sitka, Alaska this week to discuss (arguably) the most adorable cryptid we’ve ever covered. The Kooshdakhaa are a mythical shape-shifting race of were-otters found in the stories of the Tlingit and Tsimshian Indians of Southeastern Alaska. Vicious soul stealing monster or cute and cuddly life saver? I’m still waiting on an email response from Charlie Sheen…..

We’ll visit the Fortress of the Bear for an up close and personal look at these incredible Alaskan Bears. Set against the Tongass National Forest, this habitat offers daily tours. Learn the challenges they face as the staff work to rescue these incredible giants. And I think Amy has found her spirit animal.

We’ll stop for a bite at the Bayview Pub for a delicious Elk burger. Tony and Patricia have created a warm and welcoming restaurant sourcing their seafood fresh from the docks. Harley may scoff at the deliciousness of it but Amy is ready for some Rockfish tacos-served grilled, blackened, or house-dipped beer-battered and fried. With the largest selection of beer in town and 10 TVs, we may just have to move in.

We’ll honor a true Iditarod hero in the top 5 and learn what not to do with a moose.

66 -The Van Meter Visitor – Van Meter, IA

Play

On this weeks episode Brett and Harley travel north(ish) to VanMeter, IA in search of the Van Meter Visitor, Mothman, Mystery Creature whatcha ma call it.

Try saying that 5 times fast, that’s a real oddity. Again this week with the tongue twisters.

They had the pleasure of interviewing Jessica Freeburg, co-author of the”Hitch Hikers Guide to Cryptids” ‘Monsters of the Midwest

They also talk about the Vameter Visitor Festival that comes around every late September…do the math on that one.

In The News: Pojo’s Pure Vermont Soaps that are saito ward off Vampires and Werewolves and anychance at true love; unless of course you find someone that doesn’t have the sense of smell.

We discuss Van Meter #inanutshell

No Episode of the Travel Oddities Podcast would be complete without a place to grab a bite, the boys give you the “skinny” on Fat Randi’s Bar and Grill and why Iowa has a state bird, rock, flower and apparently a state sandwhich.

Brett’s Top 5 is a top 5 of epic perportions only because he never stays on topic

Brett and Harley ‘It’s better to burn out than to Fae away’ I believe that’s the saying. The Fairy welcoming committee is well under way. Can Brett find it in his heart to open his mind, body and spirit to the the fae. Tune in next time to find out if it was a Bang or Bust.
