About Us

Believe in Bigfoot? Think it’s total BS? Host Laura Krantz spent a year in the woods and in the lab, trying to answer that question. What she found might surprise even the staunchest non-believer. This legendary creature represents a mystery that still captures our imaginations and Sasquatch is as popular now as it’s ever been. Part of this is tongue-in-cheek—Bigfoot as hipster accessory. But many people take Sasquatch seriously—perfectly rational people who swear to its existence. Why does this creature ignite our imagination? Where does that fascination come from? And why does it persist?

Episode 9: Why We Want To Believe

Bigfoot researchers remain optimistic that Sasquatch is out there; that the creature will one day be found. Why? Why do people continue to believe? We’ll talk to professional skeptic Michael Shermer about the nature of belief. And we’ll look at why—even for those who think Bigfoot is a complete myth—the idea of Bigfoot holds so much appeal. What makes us so fascinated by this creature? Why do we want so badly to believe that it’s out there? --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

Episode 8: $a$quatch

EChances are, you’ve already seen Bigfoot. On pizza boxes, advertising jerky, drinking beer, driving monster trucks. There are a lot of people who really do believe. There are even more who just think the idea of Bigfoot is fun. And then there are those who see Sasquatch as a real cash cow. A Cash-squatch. We’ll sit down with CEOs and creative directors to find out what’s in a name and a logo. No doubt about it—Bigfoot is big business and Sasquatch sells. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

Bonus Interview #3 - Peter Byrne

Of the Four Horsemen of Sasquatchery - the four men held up as the pioneers of Bigfoot research - only one remains: Peter Byrne. The 93-year-old tracker has looked for Bigfoot for decades but, as we learned when we sat down with him, that’s only one adventure in a life that’s jam-packed with them. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

Episode 5: A-C-G-T Spells B-G-F-T

EEverywhere you go, you leave bits of yourself behind - and Bigfoot would 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 New York University and a regular on Spike TV’s $10 Million Bigfoot Bounty, about the magic of DNA analysis and what it might mean for Bigfoot. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
