LR074 - The Beast Of Busco & Other Indiana Cryptids w/ Sarah Crosley

Lost Rhetoric

Nov 14 2023 • 2 hrs 7 mins

Sarah Crosley is back! This time we discuss some of the most intriguing Cryptids from her home state of Indiana.  We focus mainly on the story of Oscar AKA The Beast Of Busco who, in the late 1940's caused a farmer so much grief that he went bankrupt trying to capture him & eventually sold his farm as a result of his fruitless efforts.  We also dig a bit into the aptly named Crosley Monster, who is also known as Indiana's Bigfoot & we dip our toes into the creepy waters of Puckwudgie lore.  Enjoy!
