Episode 5: Wisconsin Folklore - Skeletons, Graveyards, Owls, Undertakers, and Ghosts

For this episode we are taking a short break from the cryptids and instead focusing on our second biggest passion, Wisconsin folklore. We traded in the Sasquatch for Ghosts, the Lake Monsters for Skeletons, and the Thunderbirds for Undertakers. We use the full 42min of this episode to retell classic folktales from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. These tales are humorous, spooky, cautionary, and downright ghostly. So why not sit back, relax, and learn about the morbid side of the badger state. This is not only Midwest Cryptozoology at its finest, it’s also Midwest Folklore at its finest!
