Episode 119: Paul Bartholomew Volume Two

May 9, 2017
00:0000:00

Mark is the sole host of episode 119, so he takes the opportunity to tell all kind of embarrassing stories about when Andy was a baby...

Just kidding. Actually, Andy was not feeling well, so Mark starts the show by himself, dipping into the mailbag,  briefly reviewing David Coleman's "The Bigfoot Filmography," and talking about a number of upcoming events.

Speaking of which, Saturday, May 20th is Bigfoot Day in Canton's Stark Parks! To register for this FREE event, which features Small Town Monsters, visit reservations.starkparks.com

Then it's time for part two of a talk given by Paul Bartholomew, who is a well known and highly respected researcher and author from New York. If you have seen STM's "Beast of Whitehall," you have seen and heard Paul. This is the first half of a talk that he gave at Burr Oak State Park in Southeast Ohio in September 2015.

SPECIAL THANKS to Paul for his permission to share this audio with you!

Episode 117: The Most Important Classic Case

April 25, 2017
00:0000:00

This episode operates on a simple premise: Andy and Mark attempt to answer the question, "What is the most important classic Bigfoot case?" Their answers may surprise you. Then again, they might not!

They also highlight the excellent e-book "Bigfoot: Encounters Past to Present" by Daniel Perez and illustrated by Steven DeMarco. Another great source for this installment was Loren Coleman's "Bigfoot! The True Story of Apes in America."

Sincere thanks to everyone who wrote in this past week! Let us know YOUR most important classic case at saswhatmail@gmail.com

Episode 116: SasWhat Nation — Arizona

April 18, 2017
00:0000:00

In this freewheeling episode, Mark and Andy present tales from the Grand Canyon State for your listening pleasure! (With it being Dyngus Day and all (Google it), the guys had a full day of fun before sitting down to record.) After discussing the general geography of Arizona and the mystery of place names, they get into the goods: stories of Sasquatch activity in the north-northeast quadrant of the state, with a concentration on the Mogollon Rim. They touch on the work of the late Mitchell Waite and present the full story of Don Davis' encounter with Bigfoot near Tonto Creek. Then there is the "wild man of the rocks" account from 1903; Native American connections; you've just got to listen!

But before all that, they give their impressions of the new Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode, "Cry Wilderness," which is a really, really bad Bigfoot movie, and therefore, a stellar MST3K entry.

Episode 115: Darin Richardson, Part Two

April 11, 2017
00:0000:00

This week, Darin Richardson returns to discuss his experiences while living in The Dalles, Oregon, beginning in 2007. From a wooded ravine behind his apartment came a series of sights and sounds that caused him to conclude that Sasquatch was back in his life. Darin also shares his thoughts about what this mysterious creature really is, as well as a sighting that his daughter had while at a Civil War renactment.

There were some technical issues with the first couple of minutes of Darin's interview, but it quickly straightens out. The shaky audio is included because the information sets up the rest of Darin's story. Thanks for your understanding.

Mark and Andy begin the show by announcing incredibly huge news: they have been invited to participate in the 2nd International Cryptozoology Conference in Portland Maine! They share their reaction to this amazing opportunity and try to articulate what it means to them. It isn't easy. To learn more about ICC17, go to Loren Coleman's blog at: www.cryptozoonews.com

Darin Richardson has written a book about his experiences called "Bigfoot and I: A Personal Journey into the World of Sasquatch." You can find it on Amazon right here.

April 4, 2017
00:0000:00

Darin Richardson's life changed in 1991, when he had a close-range encounter with Bigfoot near Mineral Lake, Washington. He shares the details of his story and talks openly about the aftermath of his sighting on this episode.

Before that, Mark and Andy discuss the recent Idaho report that made major headlines, and one prominent Bigfoot authority's take on the matter.

Darin has written a book about his experiences called "Bigfoot and I: A Personal Journey into the World of Sasquatch." You can find it on Amazon right here.

The next "Small Town Monsters: LIVE" is this Thursday, April 6th at 7PM EST. Join us at the Small Town Monsters Facebook page for all the fun. The show is archived as a podcast in all the usual places.

Episode 113: Colin Schneider — The Crypto-Kid

March 28, 2017
00:0000:00

Colin Schneider is one of the youngest active researchers in the United States. He has been published in such magazines as Animals and Men and Cryptid Culture, maintains an informative blog, and hosts his own show called "Crypto-Kid." As you will hear, his knowledge of the unexplained runs deep, and his enthusiasm for cryptozoology in general and Bigfoot in particular is contagious.

Before the interview with Colin, Andy and Mark talk about a recent bill in Washington State that would designate Sasquatch as the state cryptid, as well as books they are currently reading, such as Glen Boulier's "Witnessing Bigfoot."

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
