Patron Episode 3

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 is a patron episode. To hear this episode - and every episode of Strange Familiars - become our patron at Patreon.
