Do you know the real history of the Jersey Devil?

The Jersey Devil has been a part of South Jersey folklore for over 250 years. In an interview last weekend on WPG Talk Radio 1450, John DeMasi talked to Dr. Brial Regal, Jersey Devil expert and assistant professor of the history of science at Kean University.

Dr. Regal discussed the real history of the Jersey Devil -- both of them: the Leeds Devil and the Jersey Devil, what you think you know about the Leeds family is not true, how the Leeds Devil is a political monster more than anything, and how the legend of the Jersey Devil has evolved since the early 1900s.
