    Sorry. I just can’t watch. Where’s the fun, when you already know everything they’re gonna trot out beforehand?

    If you can stand a boring almost monologue by arch sceptic Todd Disotell then this might be worth listening to if only to get his measure and appreciate what cryptozoology is unfairly up against. He does appear to be moving however in the right direction as far as accepting the obvious that there is a case for sasquatch. He also seems to be scrabbling hard to catch up.

    Interesting that those that sit at his feet at these monster talk love-ins like Ben Radford were without any of there previous enthusiasms.

    Whatever Dr Ketcham has done, she has certainly focused minds and fired off the paradigm shift that is taking place!
