Episode 33: Tally-ho Tailypo! / The Fouke Monster

Patrice and Marleah drink Pimm’s Cups and talk beaver nuggets, tail-eating mountain men, swamp apes, and the joy of scaring the shit out of kids.

 I Want My Tailypo! //

Tailypo is a creature of North American folklore, particularly in Appalachia. Different versions of this story have been passed down to many as campfire tales – and a lot of folks say it’s the story they still have nightmares about.

 The Fouke Monster //

In 1971 the Ford family was attacked in their home by a creature they said was seven feet tall, covered in hair, with large, red eyes, that walked like a man. They moved out of town the next day. Their experience brought monster hunters from across the country to the little town of Fouke, AK, and it spawned a classic B movie, The Legend of Boggy Creek. But the Fouke Monster was around long before the movie, and it’s still being seen today.
