Our third episode for patrons finds Timothy and Alison continuing the discussion from Episode 6, “Barnum’s Cannibals”. We talk about other supposed “cannibals” exhibited by P.T. Barnum, Tambo Tambo and Sussy – a husband and wife who were lured, or possibly taken, from their homeland and who each died on a separate continent, thousands of miles apart, and thousands of miles from home. We also talk about another Fiji “cannibal dwarf” who preceded the “Little General” by a number of years as well as dime shows, mummies, and more….and Tim finally gets to talk about banjos, however briefly, on Strange Familiars.
This episode is for patrons only. To get the patron episodes and other bonus content all you need to do is go to the Strange Familiars Patreon and pledge… $3.00 / month will get you the bonus episodes and other bonus content, but we have plenty of other levels with rewards like vinyl stickers, pins, t-shirts, and more.
We are getting more patrons every week, which is wonderful. The more patrons we have, the more content we can make – both in terms of the bonus, patron-only content and the regular biweekly podcast.
