Wild Thing

Sasquatch. Bigfoot. A dark shape running through the trees, a bit of fur caught on a twig, the rustling in the forest. Its legend extends back to pre-colonial times, but still captures modern imaginations. Companies market Bigfoot-themed goods: coolers, beer, television shows, bikes, chocolates, music festivals, coffee, socks. People slap “I believe” bumper stickers on their cars and kayaks and binge-watch Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot. Part of this is tongue-in-cheek—Bigfoot as hipster accessory. But many take Sasquatch seriously. Very seriously. Primatologists, naturalists, academics—perfectly rational and evidence-driven people who swear to his existence and know he (she? it?) is real. What it is about Sasquatch that ignites people’s imaginations? Something drives people to join the International Society of Cryptozoology, to write academic treatises on the existence of Sasquatch, and to spend weeks tromping through remote forests, searching for Bigfoot. This podcast delves into that world, introducing us to the true believers and the I-want-to-believers, while seeking to explore where that fascination comes from and why it persists.
