Wild Thing: A-C-G-T Spells B-G-F-T

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on November 6th, 2018

Everywhere you go, you leave bits of yourself behind and Bigfoot is no different. But now, those DNA droppings are easier than ever to analyze, making it possible to identify a species, even without a body. We’ll talk to Dr. Todd Disotell, a molecular primatologist at NYU and a regular on Spike TV’s $10 Million Bigfoot Bounty, about the magic of DNA analysis and what it might mean for Bigfoot.

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.

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?

On the Plausibility of Another Bipedal Primate Species Existing in North America

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on October 26th, 2017

Jeff Meldrum is one of the very few scientists who has not been dissuaded from pursuing research on sasquatch, despite taking heavy flak from mainstream peers. In numerous field trips to remote areas in the north-western part of the United States Jeff has collected interesting evidence that is consistent with the existence in that area of a relict population of an unknown reclusive primate species. Here is his story.
