Rhys Darby, Dan Schreiber, David Farrier and 'Buttons' bring you The Cryptid Factor - a show dedicated to the weird and the wonderful, and in particular, Cryptozoology.

Hear the team passionately (and often awkwardly) discuss animals yet to be proven by science - like the Mongolian Death Worm, Chupacabra, Bigfoot, and the Loch Ness Monster. Though they take the pseudo-science as seriously as they can, they struggle to take themselves seriously at all.

Its hosts are comedian & actor Rhys Darby, respected television journalist and documentarian David Farrier, host of top rating podcast 'No Such Thing as a Fish' Dan Schreiber - and Pulling it all together is their best friend, 'Buttons'. If anything goes wrong, it is probably his fault.

    #051 The Tongue Biting Issue

    Well, it's episode 51, and just like the Area after the same name, this episode is a real enigma. Rhys has a LA Jet-packing Mothman, Dan has  a brand new yet historically exclusive interview with actor, thespian and explorer Brian Blessed, and Buttons has a fat tongue. Also in this ep, there's 4G on the moon, a Drummer goes to hell and back and a Mothman doco gets released.

    #050 The Fifty Issue

    (5th October 2020) Guys! We made it halfway to a century! To celebrate, Dan helps the us rise in the rankings, Rhys starts modeling, and Buttons sneaks in super star special guest BENEE! You'll also find swearing parrots, a Nessie the size of a bus and the shape of a log, a Yowie poo on a termite mound, board games played with the dead and a Rat metal detector who gets a medal. Yay!

    #049 The 7 Issue

    In an exciting run of 7 episodes in a row, Rhys is enjoying living life as a 7 year old in a Lockdown hotel/prison. We celebrate our 7th patreoner and get excited about the 7th Nessie sighting this year, whilst Dan and Buttons argue over whose news of 7 musical notes is the longest (and enjoy testing the patience of Rhys in the process). All these fun 7's and more... so get amongst it!

    #048 The Segmented Issue

    (20 September 2020) In a vain attempt to be helpful, Buttons creates his first (and hopefully last) segment. Also covered in this chaotic ep: an explosive fly swatting experience, some snake swallowing surgery, taxidermied high fives, and a sighting (and a shooting) of New Zealand's own ABC's!
