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.

85 – Ghosts of Moon River Brewing – Savannah, GA

Play

All settled in the new studio, we’re finally able to get to work. And by ‘work’, I mean eating candy, hitting up the neighboehood taco truck and debating what size coffee pot to buy. And somewhere in there we managed to throw together a fantastic new episode.

Harley and Amy are talking beer, ethereal hookers, a-hole ball stealing kid ghosts and an honest to goodness speakeasy in the beautiful Savannah Georgia. A town even the highly destructive forces of Union General Sherman didn’t have the heart to destroy, Savannah has evolved into a dynamic city abuzz with art, festivals and culture. And yet it’s historic homes and cobblestone streets take you back to the bygone days of the antebellum south.

We visit the Moon River Brewing Company whose spirits dont just come in a bottle. Violence, murder, war, women and booze have a funny way of creating the perfect recipe for a turbulent haunting.

No episode of Travel Oddities would be complete without a great place to eat. We’re a little leary of the peanut butter and jelly wings at the Treylor Park but the Fancy Treylor Park Nachos make this eatery well worth the drive.

Step back in time with a visit to the Mata Hari, one of the last true speak easy’s of it’s kind. Bribe the doorman or hit up Craig’s List for a key to enjoy sultry singers and classic burlesque while sipping on an absinthe cocktail. Give some Travel Oddities love to Kit (the owner) while you’re there.

Brett’s soul stirring groundbreaking research for his Top Five destroys the misconceptions about the classic Georgia Peach myth.

It’s almost time for Cryptid Con! It’s September 9th and 10th in Frankfort, Kentucky. Be sure to check out their website for all the latest updates.

We have first hand accounts of sightings of Pinhead in a Pontiac Fiero in Chickasha Oklahoma and white Sinbad in OKC.
