Strange Familiars: Episode 37: The Oldest Bigfoot Photo?

Ep37_cover.jpg

Alison and Timothy have a discussion about some antique photos which purport to show paranormal entities. First they discuss an article which is being shared on social media of a photo which is supposed to be the oldest bigfoot photo and the many reasons why they doubt this photo is what it is claimed to be. In the second part of the show they discuss the Cottingly fairy photographs, ghost photographs, spirit photography, and more.

Episode 37 notes and links:

The cover image is from a photograph in Timothy’s collection. This is not the image we discuss in this episode and is, in fact, a man holding a bear skin. It is an example of the type of old photograph which often gets shared as a “bigfoot photo”.

This is a link to the article on Ancient Origins website which shows the “bigfoot” photo we discuss in this episode: https://www.ancient-origins.net/unexplained-phenomena/bigfoot-cryptozoology-conspiracy-0010179

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”.
