    Introducing AIPT SciPhi Fest 2021

    The online convention starts at 10 am and I'll be participating in a couple of ways if you're interested. At noon, I've got a special interview with Stephen R. Bissette. You might know him as a key artist on Alan Moore's run of Swamp Thing in the 80s - but if you've been subscribing to BIG FOOTAGE the Patreon bonus cast, you'll know him as the author of CRYPTID CINEMA.

    I'll also be on at 3:30 pm with Jeb Card to discuss conspiracies and comics.

This show has ruined me

This show has ruined me for all the other cryptozoology podcasts. It’s nice to hear a skeptical view, and interesting to listen to a rational viewpoint.

One of my top ten

I absolutely love this podcast! So we’ll researched and presented. I even love the corny dad-jokes. Long may you haunt the podcast community!
