The Lost Colony of Roanoke: It’s Not Cannibalism, OK?!

It’s almost Thanksgiving, so it’s time to get Colonial! Eat some turkey and settle in for this jumbo-sized episode on the mystery of the Lost Colony of Roanoke. For this episode, we were joined by the amazing Sarah Head and Karen Stollznow from the Archaeological Fantasies and Monster Talk podcasts, respectively. We discuss all of the possibilities of what may have happened to these colonists, from the obvious — they joined up with a local Native American tribe — to the (probably) absurd — they ate each other.

We also discuss how the story of A Nightmare on Elm Street may be more real than you’d think. Soon you will know what is really lurking under your child’s bed (Spoiler alert: it’s nothing.
