Episode 129: Listener Letters and Crackpot Science

August 27, 2017
00:0000:00

SasWhat is back with a full bag of mail! Dr. Ruminski's article from our previous episode prompted a variety of responses, and you'll hear them all.

Then it's on to an article featuring Dr. Richard Stepp and Dr. Jeff Meldrum, which underscores the professional price paid by scientists who are willing to investigate Bigfoot.

A week from today, we'll be at the International Cryptozoology Conference in Portland, Maine. Watch our Facebook page for updates from the conference.

Episode 128: Man-made: A Skeptical Viewpoint

August 1, 2017
00:0000:00

We've always said that SasWhat is recorded for the skeptics...and we put that to the test with this episode. We are happy to have Dr. Jarret Ruminski as a listener, and he was kind enough to share an article with us, written by him, that appeared in The Skeptic magazine in September 2015. (I think I said November in the episode--a thousand pardons!!!) Anyhow, we share massive amounts of the article and then respond. It was a very stimulating exercise, and we obviously hope you will agree! For more of Jarret Ruminski's writing, check out his comprehensive blog:http://thatdevilhistory.com/ 

But first, we try to come to terms with the Russian Baby Bigfoot video that has been making the rounds on the old internets. All I can tell you is that Andy named him. Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YHEAC_ggvM

PROGRAMMING NOTE: We are taking a short break from recording. Our next episode should post the week of August 21st. Thanks for your patience!

COMING UP FAST!!! It's the SasWhat Meetup: Thursday, August 17th at Fisher's Cafe and Pub, Peninsula, Ohio, beginning at 6:00 p.m. We'll get together, eat, gab, and if the weather cooperates, go for a hike in CVNP!

Episode 127: SasWhat Reunion/Boggy Q & A

July 24, 2017
00:0000:00

It's been a long time! We shouldn't have left you without some SasWhat to step to. Sorry about that, but we were out of town, and since getting back, quite a bit of our free time has been devoted to post-production on Small Town Monsters' "Invasion on Chestnut Ridge." All of this is covered in the episode you're about to listen to, plus news about being guests on the "Parent Pastor Podcast" with our pals Jonathan, Matt and Matt!

Then, it's part three of our library presentation with Seth, where we answer questions about southern Bigfoot, for the most part. Again, thanks to everyone who showed up and to the Willoughby Hills Library for hosting us!

We are announcing our next SasWhat Meetup: Thursday, August 17th at Fisher's Cafe and Pub, Peninsula, Ohio, beginning at 6:00 p.m. We'll get together, eat, gab, and if the weather cooperates, go for a hike in CVNP!

Episode 126: SasWhat Reunion/Buckeye State Bigfoot

July 11, 2017
00:0000:00

This is part two of Seth, Andy and Mark's presentation at the Willoughby Hills Library. The focus is squarely on classic Bigfoot cases from the great state of Ohio. From tales of Big Head and old Orange Eyes to the legend of Salt Fork State Park, the guys have got it covered. The entire Q & A session is also included, and the trio gets to talk about some issues that have long gone unaddressed...until now.

Once again, thank you to Holly and Mark at the Willoughby Hills Library for working with us on this very enjoyable mini-conference!

Episode 125: SasWhat Reunion/What Is Bigfoot?

July 5, 2017
00:0000:00

Couldn't make it to Willoughby Hills? Want to relive the magic? We've got you covered with part one of the library presentation that took place July 5, 2017. Seth, Andy and Mark recount the origins of SasWhat, get all philosophical about the identity of Bigfoot, and begin a discussion of Buckeye Bigfoot cases that ought to whet your appetite for part two, which will post next week. We are very grateful for everyone who came out to see us!

Episode 124: Bigfoot at the Bash

June 27, 2017
00:0000:00

Andy and Mark have returned from Monster Bash in Pennsylvania, and have some good stuff to share--in particular, part of Stan Gordon's brand new presentation entitled "Stange Aspects of the Elusive Bigfoot."

The guys also read a great letter from Stephen in Scotland and touch on a number of great communications they've received in recent days.

Episode 123: Seniors Talk About Bigfoot

June 20, 2017
00:0000:00

Full Disclosure: There is only one "senior" talking about Bigfoot on this episode. (The title is a riff on SasWhat Ep. 35, "Kids Talk About Bigfoot," which we're pretty sure was Andy's SasWhat debut.) It's Gerald Matzke, Mark's Dad and Andy's Grampy, and he steps up to the microphone quite admirably, if we do say so ourselves. We had a great time recording this episode on Father's Day, for somewhat obvious reasons.

Episode 122: Weird Bigfoot of the West Coast

June 13, 2017
00:0000:00

Inspired by their recent escapades in the Chestnut Ridge region, Andy and Mark spend this episode sifting through the pages of Jerome Clark and Loren Coleman's "Creatures of the Outer Edge" for more odd Bigfoot reports. What emerges is a pattern of West Coast weirdness that has to be heard to be believed...and if you don't believe it, that's really OK.

Small Town Monsters latest film, "Mothman of Point Pleasant," is making a splash over on Amazon Video. Check out www.smalltownmonsters.com for more details!

The Big Sky Bigfoot Conference is coming up soon (Sept. 22-23) in beautiful Hamilton, Montana! Wish we could go! Doesn't mean you can't. Check out the lineup and more at: www.bigskybigfootconference.com

Episode 121: The Chestnut Ridge Recordings (feat. Stan Gordon)

June 6, 2017
00:0000:00

This past weekend, Mark and Andy were present for the shooting of the next Small Town Monsters documentary, "Invasion on Chestnut Ridge," and found the time to record a segment for your listening enjoyment! In this episode, they explore the mysteries of southwestern Pennsylvania with guests Brandon Dalo and Stan Gordon. Standing in the shadow of the Kecksburg UFO replica, Andy, Mark, Brandon and Stan discuss the many strange features of this otherwise beautiful region. Don't worry, the conversation is 99.99% spoiler free as far the movie is concerned!

Special thanks to Stan Gordon for his invaluable assitance in the making of "Invasion on Chestnut Ridge," and for spending time with us on the shoot.

A special shout-out to Eric Altman; it was great to finally meet you face-to-face!

Andy and Mark are back! Thank you for the prayers and kind words directed Andy's way. He's feeling much better.

One of our listeners (Ryan from Pittsburgh, to be precise) provided the inspiration for this week's episode. He asked us to name our top 10 best "Non-Small Town Monsters" Bigfoot movies. We happily obliged, and you may listen to the results right here, right now. Thanks, Ryan!
