Welcome to the very first episode of "Bigfoot and Beyond with Cliff and Bobo"! Cliff Barackman and James "Bobo" Fay discuss this brand new podcast, how they met each other, how they came to be cast members of Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot, answer fan questions, and much more!
Sasquatch sells. So does sex. And Sasquatch sex? Well, you can make quite a living off of that. We talk to Virginia Wade, renowned Bigfoot erotica author, about her work and how she started writing steamy Sasquatch scenes. (This one's probably not for the kiddos...)
Time for a little 80s nostalgia! We pay homage to the movie classic, Harry and the Hendersons, the ultimate (if fictional) Bigfoot encounter. William Dear, the movie’s director, talks to us about the movie’s origins.
Bigfoot researchers remain optimistic that Sasquatch is out there; that the creature will one day be found. Why? Why do people continue to believe? We’ll talk to professional skeptic Michael Shermer about the nature of belief. And we’ll look at why—even for those who think Bigfoot is a complete myth—the idea of Bigfoot holds so much appeal. What makes us so fascinated by this creature? Why do we want so badly to believe that it’s out there?
Who are the people who build their lives around Bigfoot, the people who’ve risked their professional careers and personal reputations, and expended a lot of time, money and energy seeking out Sasquatch? We’ll attend an exclusive Bigfoot symposium, for the crème de la crème of Bigfoot researchers, and hear from many who’ve been ridiculed for their interest in Bigfoot.
Chances are, you’ve already seen Bigfoot. On pizza boxes, advertising jerky, drinking beer, driving monster trucks. There are a lot of people who really do believe. There are even more who just think the idea of Bigfoot is fun. And then there are those who see Sasquatch as a real cash cow. A Cash-squatch. We’ll sit down with CEOs and creative directors to find out what’s in a name and a logo. No doubt about it—Bigfoot is big business and Sasquatch sells.
Of the Four Horsemen of Sasquatchery - the four men held up as the pioneers of Bigfoot research - only one remains: Peter Byrne. The 93-year-old tracker has looked for Bigfoot for decades but, as we learned when we sat down with him, that’s only one adventure in a life that’s jam-packed with them.
Let’s look at the evidence. There are footprints and sounds, grainy pictures, and the notorious Patterson-Gimlin film—that shaky 1967 video of a big, hairy beast striding through the forest. But how well does it hold up? We hear from a variety of people—the skeptics and the certain—who make their case for what evidence is out there. How much of it stands up to scrutiny?
Laura Krantz is a veteran public radio editor and producer. So how did she end up in the wilds of the Pacific Northwest, eyeballing some giant ground nests… that might have been made by Bigfoot? You can place the blame squarely on the shoulders of a guy named Grover. He was a tenured professor of anthropology at Washington State University and one of world’s preeminent experts on Sasquatch. And it turns out that Grover is also Laura’s long-lost cousin. How could she not do a story about this guy?
