    Where the Footprints End with Joshua Cutchin and Timothy Renner

    Where the Footprints End with Joshua Cutchin and Timothy Renner

    On this episode of Expanded Perspectives the guys start the show off talking about Cam's recent remodel of his bathrooms in his house and the return of baseball up in Oklahoma. Then, they get into some news about an unknown green eyed bided in Kentucky, another Glimmer Man sighting from North Carolina and a sparsely furred humanoid in Kentucky. After the break we speak with Joshua Cutchin and Timothy Renner about their new book "Where the Footprints End: High Strangeness and the Bigfoot Phenomenon, Volume I: Folklore". Our forests seem to be hiding something much more complex than an undiscovered gorilla. Bigfoot may be howling from a lonely mountaintop, but the bigfoot phenomenon is whispering secrets... if we will only listen.



    Eyewitnesses, investigators, and cryptozoologists worldwide contend ample evidence exists supporting the survival of large, hairy, apelike creatures alongside mankind today, lurking in the wilderness. By all appearances, these beings seem wholly natural, interacting with their surroundings and leaving behind hair, blood, droppings, and, of course, footprints.



    Yet despite their apparently physical nature, bigfoot and its hairy hominid kin consistently appear mired in High Strangeness—the peculiar, ineffable, and nonsensical absurdities so often encountered in paranormal phenomena.Some sightings seem more consistent with mythology than biology. Bigfoot often present supernatual attributes, like luminescent eyes or the ability to pass, ghostlike, through structures. Anomalous lights are regulalry seen in areas of frequent sasquatch activity. Footprints persistently, if rarely, display odd numbered toes, and—most bafflingly—bigfoot trackways suddenly terminate in the middle of open, untouched terrain.



    In Volume 1 of Where the Footprints End: High Strangeness and the Bigfoot Phenomenon, authors Joshua Cutchin and Timothy Renner carefully examine not only the intersection of hairy apemen with global folklore—of poltergeists, faeries, extraterrestrials, magic, witches, ghosts, and archetypal women-in-white—but also question the fundamental assumptions underlying contemporary cryptozoological beliefs surrounding bigfoot.

He holds a Masters in Music Literature and a Masters in Journalism from the University of Georgia, and currently resides in Roswell, Georgia.

    Above the Law

    Above the Law

    On this episode of Expanded Perspectives the boys start the show off talking about Kyle had to get up early and help an old man who fell down at his house next door to where Kyle lives. Then, the guys into some strange sightings including a limping Humanoid, a devil dog, a werewolf and a possible Rake! After the break Kyle brings up some UFO encounters by people in law enforcement.



    Among the many witnesses of UFOs, some of them make up the men and women of law enforcement. Like we talk about so many times on this show, for some reason stories from credible witnesses like pilots, radar operators and police officers seem to have more believability over stories from just any old person. These are people out doing their job to serve and protect, yet sometimes it seems that they come across things that nothing in their experience or training has prepared them for. On todays show we talk about some very strange encounters by people in law enforcement.

Like the giants, their spirits are forever bound to the earth, according to the Book of Enoch. Along with this many Native American tribes have a shared legend about a race of dwarves or pygmies.

These guys rock.

Great sense of humor. Fun topics, even when it’s a heavy it’s still light enough to listen to before bed. You can tell these guys have been friends for ever. The stories can be incredible, but Cam and Big Phizzy keep it real. And the tunes slap. Keep it up boys!
