    Robert Leiterman: The Bluff Creek Project

    Robert Leiterman: The Bluff Creek Project

    In this installment of Sasquatch Tracks, we are joined by former Park Ranger and Sasquatch researcher Robert Leiterman, author of books that include "The Bluff Creek Project: The Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot Film Site A Journey of Rediscovery." 
    As Leiterman's book explains, "By the 1990s the [Patterson/Gimlin] film site had been lost to public knowledge and reclaimed by dense regrowth. During the prestigious 2003 International Bigfoot Symposium in nearby Willow Creek, none of the supposed experts could agree on the exact location of the once-famous encounter. Doubt lurked behind the numerous assertions as nature and time attempted to erase history."
    Enter Robert Leiterman and his crew of companions, who decided to piece together this historical mystery. "The members of the group lived nearby, so they had a unique opportunity to conduct local historical studies on site, and to explore the whole watershed intimately." Join us in hearing the insightful story of the Bluff Creek Project right from Robert Leiterman, as he joins us on Sasquatch Tracks.

    Charlie Raymond: Bigfoot in the Bluegrass State

    Charlie Raymond: Bigfoot in the Bluegrass State

    On this edition of Sasquatch Tracks, we are joined by Kentucky researcher Charlie Raymond for a discussion of his ongoing Bigfoot research in the Bluegrass State, and many decades of studies into the possible existence of relict hominoids. 
    Charlie founded the Kentucky Bigfoot Research Organization in 1997, in an effort to document all credible Bigfoot encounters in the state of Kentucky. For over three decades he has interviewed witnesses, conducted investigations, and held expeditions in the hopes of one day proving the existence of the creatures. He believes Bigfoot to be a "flesh and blood" unidentified hominin, very closely related to humans. One day he hopes to establish laws in Kentucky to protect these magnificent creatures. Charlie Raymond is also a BFRO Investigator for the state of Kentucky, and holds a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Florida, and can be found online at his website, www.kentuckybigfoot.com.

    Cliff Barackman: Bigfoot Studies and Track Analysis

    Cliff Barackman: Bigfoot Studies and Track Analysis

    In this installment of Sasquatch Tracks, as the team reconvenes at the Appalachian Institute for Hominology Studies this week, we are joined by researcher Cliff Barackman, co-host of Bigfoot 'n' Beyond podcast and one of the longtime costars of the hit Animal Planet television series Finding Bigfoot. 
    Cliff says he has been involved with Sasquatch research since at least as early as 1994, and since that time has traveled the world visiting many continents in search of evidence of purported relict hominoids. According to his website, "Cliff is especially familiar with the footprint and handprint evidence for sasquatches, and he is the curator for one of the largest collections of cast evidence in the world.  His collection includes impressions from North America, Asia, Australia, and Europe." 
    We enjoy an in-depth conversation with Cliff about his castings, how he analyzes them, and what this conveys about the reality of the Bigfoot phenomenon in this special edition of Sasquatch Tracks.

    Daniel Perez: Bigfoot Times, Bluff Creek, and Beyond

    Daniel Perez: Bigfoot Times, Bluff Creek, and Beyond

    In this very special installment of Sasquatch Tracks, the team is proud to welcome longtime researcher Daniel Perez to the program, a historian and chronicler of the Sasquatch subject and editor/publisher of the legendary newsletter Bigfoot Times. 
    According to Perez, The Bigfoot Times is "where you go when you need to know!" when it comes to the subject of Bigfoot. As of January 2022, Bigfoot Times  has celebrated an incredible 24 years of continuous publishing, which Perez points out that "Few -- if anyone -- can make that claim." In an era where the majority (if not virtually all) publications dealing with the Sasquatch subject are found exclusively online, Perez's lasting contributions with Bigfoot Times have long remained a cornerstone for innovative discourse on the Sasquatch mystery.
    Our conversation with Daniel Perez covers everything from the early beginnings of The Bigfoot Times (which you can subscribe to online here), to his in-depth research into one of the most famous and controversial films of all time: the Patterson/Gimlin film of 1967, which purportedly depicts a large, female Sasquatch at Bluff Creek, California.

    John Mionczynski: The Biologist and Bigfoot

    John Mionczynski: The Biologist and Bigfoot

    On this special holiday edition of Sasquatch Tracks, the team is joined by legendary biologist John Mionczynski, whose personal experience with a Sasquatch in 1972 while camping in the Wind River Mountains propelled him on a decades-long search for answers about the creatures and their existence. 
    A naturalist, ethnobotanist, and musician with a penchant for old BMW motorcycles, Mionczynski is a revered and well-regarded field scientist who has worked with the U.S. Forest Service and a number of agencies on various wildlife projects. His study of Sasquatch in the decades since his 1972 encounter has led him to pursue indigenous American knowledge about the creatures, their habits, and behavior. Our conversation with Mionczynski takes us deep into the lingering questions about Sasquatch, and how science can be applied toward their study.

What’s up

Miss you guys on the pod. What’s happing?

CajunTech ,

Finally another great podcast!!

After sifting through so much garbage in the podcast world, it’s great to find this show, which approaches the subject with intelligence and doesn’t bring in a bunch of crackpots and wackos just to knock out another episode. This is one of the best podcasts out there! Hope other shows watch & learn from this. Only downside is at times Micah (host) can be a little full of himself, and detract from the guest as a result

LisaLoc ,

Good content

Nice to have a host who is intelligent and asks meaningful questions. There are too many podcasts about Bigfoot that let the guest go on and on and on about their encounters. Let’s be real most encounters last a minute ….maybe. If the story is stretched out an for an hour? Liar liar pants on fire. Just saying
