Christmas legends and folklore from around the world!
We have all heard tales and stories of Bigfoot, The Jersey Devil, chupacabra, and the Loch Ness Monster. What is it about these creatures that hold our attention. But did you know that there is more to Cryptids than just these four specimens. Did you know the story of the Kraken is actually based on a real life proven Cryptid? What about real life "monsters"? Who is this "Green Man"? What the heck is an Architeuthis? Is there really a “Devil Bird of Sri Lanka”? Was there really an “Ice Man of Minnesota”? Can I hunt a “Jackalope”?
Hear about some of the more elaborate hoaxes in the years. P.T. Barnum was at the forefront of the hoaxes at the pinnacle of the with his real life “Mermaid”. Don’t be lumped in with his famous “There is a sucker born every minute” quote. Learn the facts on fakes here.
But even with great fakes out there, we have discovered actual cryptids to be alive and well. Just because it is a cryptid doesn’t mean it can’t really be out there. Learn about some real life Cryptids that are alive and well!

Today on Never a Niche Live, I would like to share some folklore about Oregon.
"Today's presentation is a famous work of fiction that many people mistakenly think is a true story. It’s a story written in 1899 by Lischen Miller, the sister-in-law of famous Oregon writer Joachin Miller, and published in a West Coast literary magazine called Pacific Monthly. Published, I should say, as a work of fiction. Miller never represented her story as anything else."
--Finn of "Lies of Oregon"
Today's podcast examines a tale of an Oregon lighthouse and, I felt, was an interesting story of how tales like these continue to grow and mold into truth.
We journey to the island of St. Vincent to explore ancient places and the history of a proud people few know anything about. Our first stop is to the Botanical Gardens of St. Vincent, the oldest such garden of its type in the Western Hemisphere, and we are joined by historian Dr. Edgar Adams for a look into some of the events and experiences that have defined his life and the history of St. Vincent. Then we travel to Fort Charlotte where we meet Augustine Sutherland, a decendant of one of St. Vincent's indigeneous ethnic groups, the Garafuna. Fort Charlotte was built by the British (1793-1806), not to defend against a naval attack but as an inland defense against attacks from the Garafuna, Kalinago and the French. This in evidenced by the fact that the cannons of Fort Charlotte face inland. Augustine shares some of the tragic history his ancestors faced here and some of the challenges he faced growing up as a Garafuna on St. Vincent.
