99 – The Spottsville Monster – Owensboro, KY


We are back in Kentucky and hoping that we don’t offend the locals(like last time).

Brett and Amy are traveling to Owensboro and a spot on the map, called Spottsville to find an oddity that is so terrifying that the locals just call it the Spottsville monster.

So what is the Spottsville monster? How does a red-eyed, chicken stealing bigfoot sound?

This cryptid is spooky, but don’t let that sway you from the fun along the banks of the Green River.

There is more to do in the town of Owensboro than you could find at Disneyland.

We discuss the Haunts of Owensboro Ghost Tour and then Amy explains why haunted carriage rides are not for picky agoraphobes with no taste for the outdoors.

If you are planning a trip to hunt for the Spottsville Monster, be sure to pack your spell-book so you can try some voodoo Supernatural tricks which will be fully explained in this very special episode.

No Episode of the Travel Oddities Podcast would be complete without a place to grab a bite, and Amy and Brett decided to go all high class with Shrimp from Bill’s Restaurant.

The Top 5 some sticky stuff on the back, so we are going to write our grocery list on it….some of us need sleep, so deal with my weird ramblings or just listen to the damn show already.

48 – Bigfoot Conference – Honobia, OK



Better throw out your GPS for this trip with Brett and Harley as they take you to the mountains of Oklahoma! On this week’s episode, we travel to Honobia, OK to check out the Honobia Bigfoot Conference. Where else are you going to find bigfoot, but in the mountains of Oklahoma. The people of this town are super nice and they can point you in the direction of all of the bigfoot hangouts. Bigfoot may not be the only cryptid walking in these woods, but he is the only one that gets his own conference. We like to support cool people doing cool things, and what is cooler than having a bigfoot event to raise scholarship money for the local youths. Bigfoot has been around these parts for as far back as anyone can remember, but was brought to the attention in 2001 when a horrifying encounter made the news. We discuss the event that happens at the beginning of every October and some of the cool people we me along the way. This is an epic oddity hidden away in a scenic location.

Our news story is truly disgusting and ripped from the headlines. ScienceNews.org brings us a new super-food.

If you are planning a trip to Honobia, these are just a few other activities that you might be interested in checking out:

Beavers Bend State Park 45 minutes away – Eagle watches are available from November through February. Trout fishing, fly fishing clinics, guided horseback rides, and hayrides throughout the park are other activities offered at Beavers Bend.
