Bigfoot in Pennsylvania with Timothy Renner - June 24, 2017

BigfootI discuss with Timothy Renner, his fascinating book, Bigfoot in Pennsylvania. In this book, Tim has collected news clippings from the 1800's and early 1900's that clearly refer to Bigfoot-like creatures. It is interesting to see how this is treated then, and what similarities and differences there are with modern accounts. And there are also some very strange ones mixed in...

Outro Song by Tim's band, Stone Breath. The song is Apples for the Albatwitch, and the album is Cryptids.

The Role of Fiction in our Study of the Strange... - June 9, 2017

BurningTarotI am joined by Joshua Cutchin, Adam Sayne, and Timothy Renner for a discussion of Fiction and how it relates to the subjects we study. We discuss fiction as a release valve, as an influence on ideas, as well as how fiction can muddy the waters of what is fact and what is fiction. We get into a lot of stuff in this show, including recommending some excellent fictional podcasts. We also talk everything from Star Trek to Lovecraft. Enjoy.
