I guested on Bug in a Rug Podcast to talk about a giant mosquito cryptid!

If you were on Fear Factor and had to decide between an eagle-sized mosquito drinking your blood or a hot coal thrown on your back, which would you choose?

Join us as we discuss the tall tale of the Averasboro Gallinipper, a giant mosquito that supposedly tormented the swamps of North Carolina!


Huge THANK YOU!!! to Kaitlyn for letting me feature my guest appearance from her show! Everyone knows I love talking about giant insects, and how they totally cannot exist in modern times!
