Wild Thing: Why We Want to Believe

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on December 5th, 2018

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?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on November 26th, 2018

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.

Wild Thing: Taboo

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on November 24th, 2018

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?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on October 24th, 2018

Bob Gimlin is half of the famous duo that was there that day in 1967, when the Patterson-Gimlin film was shot. Despite years of ridicule and harassment, he stands by his story. Now, fifty years after that fateful day, he sits down to tell us about what happened and the fallout he experienced.

Wild Thing: The Evidence

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on October 16th, 2018

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?

Wild Thing: Distant Relative or Kissing Cousin?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on October 10th, 2018

Just what is Bigfoot? Descendant of ancient apes? Close human ancestor? Evolution might hold the answer to this question. Homo sapiens may rule the planet now but once upon a time, we weren’t the only hominid creatures walking around. Who’s to say that Bigfoot wasn’t—and still isn’t—among us? We talk to evolution experts and anthropologists, including Ian Tattersall, curator at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

Wild Thing: Grover

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on October 8th, 2018

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?

The ‘Wild Thing’ podcast is like ‘Serial’ for Sasquatches

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on October 5th, 2018

For more than a year, Laura Krantz searched for Sasquatches and the people who love them. She tromped through the Pacific Northwest looking for Bigfoot nests, frequented Sasquatch-enthusiast chat rooms, and talked to scientists about how DNA testing may be able to be used to help prove — or at least explain — the hairy fella’s existence.

So, Why Do People Believe In Bigfoot Anyway?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on July 19th, 2018

Relatively few people, in or out of the field of science, believe in Bigfoot. A purported Bigfoot sighting would likely be met with the same level of credulity as a discovery of Casper, Elvis, Tupac, or Santa Claus. With only 16 percent of Americans Bigfoot believers, you might just write them off as crazy. But contrary to popular assumption, folklore experts say, Bigfoot believers may not be as irrational as you’d think.

Does Science Benefit From the Search for Sasquatch?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on July 3rd, 2018
