Episode 111: Bigfoot Bookshelf feat. Matt B. Hooks

March 14, 2017
00:0000:00

Matt B. Hooks is a dyslexic author who learned how to face and overcome his fears of reading and writing. He went on to earn his Master's degree from the University of Hawaii at Manoa to become a special education teacher. It is now his mission to reach out to those who are at risk of developing a "learned helplessness" attitude towards reading. He has written the book "Enormous Norm Goes to School," about a boy named Dean who helps his Bigfoot friend learn important social skills. In this episode, Mark and Andy talk to Matt about his life experiences and why he chose Bigfoot to be a central character in his latest work.

But first, the guys give their reviews of Vince Dorse's "Untold Tales of Bigfoot" graphic novel. Suffice it to say they have their fingers crossed for a Volume II.

Matt B. Hooks' books can be found on Amazon, and you can write him at authormattbhooks@wordpress.com

Our next SasWhat Nation episode will focus on Alaska--if you have a story to share, please send it in soon.

February 7, 2017
00:0000:00

SasWhat has awesome listeners, and this episode is proof. Mark and Andy read and respond to some pretty cool letters from the mailbag.

But first they cover an eclectic assortment of news items, and announce an upcoming series of episodes called SASWHAT NATION, a state-by-state examination of the Bigfoot phenomenon. First up will be Alabama. Got an Alabama Sasquatch story? Send it to us at saswhatmail@gmail.com or DM us on Facebook.

The second half of the show is a portion of the Small Town Monsters Facebook Live Kickstarter Launch Party that was broadcast on 97.1 FM--Wadsworth Community Radio. Andy and Mark joined Seth Breedlove, Brandon Dalo, and WCR's Tom Stugmyer to take questions about "Mothman of Point Pleasant" and "Invasion on Chestnut Ridge." A good time was had by all!

Episode 105: Incredible Childhood Encounters

January 31, 2017
00:0000:00

It's an idea that keeps some kids awake at night: "What if I look out my bedroom window and see Bigfoot?" That's the scenario Andy and Mark explore in this episode.

But first they stop by the News Desk for an important announcement regarding Small Town Monsters' next TWO projects, and how you can participate. For more info, go here.

Then they review David Ford's 2016 film "Something in the Woods," which served as the inspiration for the main topic of the show--namely, interaction between human children and Sasquatch. If you're not familiar with the name "Dora Bradley," you will never forget it after hearing her story.

Episode 104: Myth and the Modern Bigfoot Era with Dr. David Floyd

January 24, 2017
00:0000:00

Dr. David Floyd, Associate Professor of English at Charleston Southern University, is becoming an increasingly well-known presenter on the Bigfoot conference circuit. In this episode, he joins Andy and Mark for a conversation that reflects on his experience at the Virginia Bigfoot Conference and anticipates his participation in the International Bigfoot Conference in Kennewick, Washington in early September, where he will share the bill with such Sasquatch luminaries as Dr. Jeff Meldrum, Derek Randles, Lyle Blackburn and Adam Davies.

Dr. Floyd 's research deals with the consistent presence of bigfoot-type creatures in folklore and legend, and the good news is, he is just getting started! We are more than proud to say that Dr. Floyd is a true friend of the show.

You can view his presentation at the Virginia Bigfoot Conference right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3LhaXqFaeI&t=892s
