Strange Familiars: Episode 31: Wild Men of the Circus and Asylums

Alison returns to talk with Timothy about historical wild men of a different sort (not bigfoot). Circus sideshow and dime museum “wild men” performers as well as unfortunate souls – itinerants, the insane, or simply people who wandered away from society, looked different, and were labeled “wild men” often out of fear. We talk about Houdini, The Wild Men of Borneo, the Fiji Cannibals, Eko and Iko, and other circus performers. We also discuss the strange and sad case of a York County “wild man” who eventually ended up in the County Alms House with the diagnosis “troubled with ghosts”.


Two forms which note Dan Luckenbaugh’s Form of Disease – first “Troubled with ghosts” – and later, simply “ghosts”.
