Here is where will we keep a list of all of our shows to date, from newest to oldest.
Episode 107: One Word: Bigfoot
Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti, Kooshtaka, Skunk Ape, while there are many names, there is commonality in the reports of the strange hairy humanoid/hominoid creature found across remote regions world wide. Usually covered in dark hair, weighing several hundred pounds, and standing over 7-10 feet tall, these beings have become intertwined in legend and pop culture. While some believe this entity is an unidentified species of ape, many researchers have turned to a more paranormal explanation. On this show we are going to talk about the history, the different theories, and some supporting unique and current cases. The second half of the show we are premiering an interview with a very special guest, Timothy Renner. Timothy is the creator of the Strange Familiars podcast, and has written two books on gathered reports of Bigfoot. He is currently working on gathering reports of an untouched subject – the Flannel Man. This is going to be a wild show, so sit back and enjoy a howling good time!
