Bigfoot: America’s Favorite Cryptid | 71

Bigfoot – sometimes a topic needs no introduction and this is one of them. But just in case you stumbled across this podcast by dumb luck and know nothing about cryptids OR you’ve been living in a bomb shelter, cut off from the world, à la Brendan Fraser in Blast From the Past – here’s a quick rundown. It’s purportedly a large, hairy, ape-like creature that roams the U.S’s Pacific Northwest. While there have been 1000s of sightings, 100s of footprints, and dozens of alleged videos taken of the legend – not one bone, skull, or any other other piece of true forensic evidence has ever been produced substantiating the simian beast’s existence. So, is this a lost species that is either too good at hiding or too endangered to be found? Or, if this the greatest self perpetuating hoax of all-time? We strap on our hiking boots and do some tree knocking to get to the bottom of it this week. Plus, C-Bot has a disturbing notion of what one should bring with them to the zoo (we don’t know why he needed bleach and plumber’s putty), we talk the ins and outs of Bigfoot finding himself (even a Sasquatch can spend his formative years backpacking through Europe), and Brent adds a new voice to his repertoire (Frankenstein’s Bigfoot anyone?). All of that and more on the podcast that has not only seen Bigfoot, but ate it too…a lot of it…from Pizza Hut – Hysteria 51.
