With Albatwitch Day approaching, James and Timothy discuss albatwitches: the short in temper – as well as stature – hair covered ape-men said to haunt the riparian regions of South-Central Pennsylvania. We discuss albatwitch legends, some modern sightings, and the etymology of the name “albatwitch”. We also talk to Colin Schneider (aka The Crypto-Kid) about other “little people”, hairy dwarves, and diminutive humanoids from around the world.
