Hey, remember us? SasWhat returns with a full recap of our trip to Portland, Maine, for the International Cryptozoology Conference. It’s like you were there with us, except you don’t have to do a punishing drive through New England on Labor Day weekend! (Actually, it wasn’t that bad. OK, parts of it were…oh never mind.) The phrase “once in a lifetime” gets thrown around a lot, but it truly applies in this case. The ICC was everything we imagined it would be, except way better. We will always be grateful to Loren Coleman and Seth Breedlove for getting us to Portland for this fantastic event. THE INVASION IS ALMOST HERE! “Invasion on Chestnut Ridge,” Small Town Monsters’ latest production, will be released this month! It was co-written and narrated by Mark. See it live and in person Saturday, October 21st at the Space Visitors Film Festival in San Francisco, CA and/or Creature Weekend at Salt Fork State Park, [...]

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.

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 [...]

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!

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!

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.

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. Don’t forget to check out www.cryptidcrate.com and find them on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. COME SEE US July 5 & 6 at the Willoughby Hills (OH) Public Library, 6:00 p.m. both nights!

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. COME SEE US July 5 & 6 at the Willoughby Hills (OH) Public Library, 6:00 p.m. both nights!

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.

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! Please check out Stan’s website at www.stangordon.info Eric’ show can be found here:

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! COME SEE US July 5 & 6 at the Willoughby Hills (OH) Public Library, 6:00 p.m. both nights!

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 [...]

Lots going on this week! Andy and Mark announce a birth; they talk about stolen Bigfoot; read a letter; review the DVD “Sasquatch Odyssey”; and promote the next Small Town Monsters LIVE taking place this Thursday at 7:00 p.m. on Facebook. Then they reach into the audio archives to share a presentation by Paul Bartholomew, who is a well known and highly respected researcher and author from New York.

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!

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.

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 abou [...]

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. SasWhat Nation: Ar [...]

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.” Check out Colin’s blog at: www.paranorm101.blogspot.com Find him on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/paranorm101/ Check out his latest article, “Monsters of the Fay,” in Cryptid Culture M [...]
