Episode Info:

I can’t believe it took me the long to do the Jersey Devil. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a fascination with New Jersey. Don’t’ ask why, I’m well aware of the states reputation. Nevertheless, the allure of the hockey team, Kevin Smith films, and coastline has always been there – oh, and of course the Jersey Devil. In the same tier as Bigfoot and Loch Ness, the Jersey Devil ranks as one of the premier cryptids out there, with a history dating back to the 1700’s. With a legend that old, and that rich, there’s got to be a lot to talk about, and boy is there, and somehow I managed to keep the cast to just 25 minutes. It may be something I explore later on as well.


From the Leeds’ family, to the mythological figure of Mother Leeds and her 13th son, to the geological location of the Pine Barrens and curses, this legend has it all. Like with any good origin story or legend the Jersey Devil has a lore rich in actual history, with historical figures such as Daniel Leeds and Benjamin Franklin being involved in the possible creation of the myth, to the supernatural in a cursed birth. Like I said, it has everything, and it’s all available in this easily digestible episode; so, enjoy!
