Episode 30 : Parasitic Twins & The Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp : Bigfoot, King of the Forest Podcast

On Episode 30 of the Bigfoot, King of the Forest Podcast Sara & Jeff are back again in Rougarou Studios to talk about the weird, the strange, and the obscure.

After the news, Sara discusses parasitic twins. One of Sara’s favorite books growing up was the Dark Half by Steven King. What exactly are parasitic twins? How is it different from conjoined twins? How does this happen and what are the repercussions and options when parasitic twins become a reality.

In the second part of the show, Jeff digs into the strange tale of the Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp. In 1988, an upright Lizard-type creature was repeatedly reported in and around Bishopville, South Carolina. Known to terrorize residents, gnaw on vehicles, and cause quite the ruckus, what was the Lizard Man? Was it a real creature? A hoax? A Bigfoot in disguise? And is there still a creature roaming the swamps of South Carolina.

Episode 29 : Are We Living in A Simulation & Is Cryptozoology a Cult | Bigfoot, King of the Forest

On Episode 29 of the Bigfoot, King of the Forest Podcast Sara & Jeff are back and asking the BIG questions that really matter. Are we living in a simulation and Is Cryptozoology a cult?

Jeff also introduces you to the dance craze sensation that will soon sweep the nation: The Bob Heironimus.

After an eventful news segment, Sara asks, “are living in a simulation?” What if computers have become so powerful that we are simply living in a program and have no idea? What does it mean to exist? Are we merely living in a reality created by others…even aliens? Are we living in a game of extraterrestrial sims?

Jeff also goes on a diatribe on why the Popeye’s chicken sandwich is far superior to Chick-Fil-A.

In the second part of the show, Jeff talks about a recent blog he read which asked, Is Cryptozoology a Cult? by Andrew McGrath, author of Beasts of Britain. While he understands where Andrew is coming from, Jeff disagrees with the assumption that people who believe in Bigfoot, Jersey Devil, or Fairies are the same as the followers of the Peoples’ Temple or Charles Manson. What actually constitutes a cult?

On Episode 28 of the Bigfoot, King of the Forest Podcast Sara & Jeff are joined by Keegan and Madelyn at Rougarou Studios to celebrate the One Year (and a Week) Anniversary of the show!

After the news, Jeff reads a listener submission from Donald in which the listener recounts experiences he has had in the Black Hills of South Dakota, including sightings, sounds, and even tracks.

Then, the team goes around the room and reads listener submissions to answer the question we posed: “Why Bigfoot? What is it about the big ape that tickles our fancies and why do we love him so much. We also give our own reasons as to why we are drawn to our favorite cryptid.

Jeff also introduces the team to his first homebrew beer attempt. The verdict: We don’t hate it. Score!

Episode 27: Best Found Footage Films & Extraterrestrial Sasquatch | Bigfoot, King of the Forest Podcast

On Episode 27 of the Bigfoot, King of the Forest Podcast Sara & Jeff are back at it from Rougarou Studios after anther brief hiatus. Before the news, they discuss what has been going on with the studio, work and family obligations that have been keeping them from podcasting regularly, but look to be slowing down as they get settled in to the studio.

After the news, Sara gets into one of Jeff’s favorite things: found footage films. She goes through a recent list of the top 10 found footage films of all time, though Jeff tends to disagree with some of the rankings. How the Hell the Bad Ben series or a single Bigfoot found footage film made it on the list is still confusing them both. In the second half, Jeff goes over a topic they have glazed over a few times: what if Bigfoot is an alien? While there is often a line in the sand drawn between Bigfoot researchers and UFO enthusiasts, there is a subset of the groups that believe an alien Sasquatch could help explain blurry photos, tracks stopping in the middle of nowhere and other issues that have stumped Bigfoot researchers for decades.

Ron Morehead is the dude Jeff was talking about and is the author of the Sierra Sounds book, Voices in the Wilderness.

Minisode 3 - A BKOTF Baby Squatch: ZenSquatch

For our third Bigfoot, King of the Forest Podcast, Baby Squatch (mini episode), Jeff is alone again (sadface), but never fear, he gets a little philosophical (yes, after a couple of drinks) and rambles on about whether Bigfoot could be a Zen Master.

That's right! Along with his love of Bigfoot, Jeff is also very interested in Zen Buddhism and Meditation, and he often likes to put these two loves together and think about whether or not Bigfoot has Buddha nature, and what that might mean for the species and for us humans.
