The Jersey Devil | 219

The Jersey Devil | 219

There are rules in this world. Rules not meant to be broken. Don't feed a Mogwai after midnight. Don't invade Russia in the winter. And for the love of all that's holy, don't curse your 13th child to the devil while living in New Jersey. If you do, you wind up with this week's cryptid - The Jersey Devil. This part dragon, part goat/horse monstrosity as been terrifying New Jersey and its neighbors for the better part of 3 centuries. But where did it come from? Is it real? Are Sandhill Cranes the true devil here? That's all this week as we grab our rope and a rosary to catch The Jersey Devil. Plus, Conspiracy Bot travels to Equatorial Guinea (we don't know either), a prospector finds his way to 17th Century New Jersey (Brent needs help), and the fellas talk about the most important topic of all: Taylor Ham vs pork roll. All of that and more on the podcast that’s never seen The Jersey Devil in person, we’re more into football - Hysteria 51.
