Believe in Bigfoot? Think it’s total BS? Host Laura Krantz spent a year in the woods and in the lab, trying to answer that question. What she found might surprise even the staunchest non-believer. This legendary creature represents a mystery that still captures our imaginations and Sasquatch is as popular now as it’s ever been. Companies market Bigfoot-themed goods: beer, television shows, bikes, coffee, socks... erotica. People slap “I believe” bumper stickers on their cars and kayaks and binge-watch Bigfoot-themed reality shows. Part of this is tongue-in-cheek—Bigfoot as hipster accessory. But many people take Sasquatch seriously. Very seriously. Primatologists, naturalists, academics—perfectly rational people who swear to his existence and know he (she? it?) is real. Veteran public radio producer Laura Krantz has met them. Wild Thing is Laura’s journey into the world of Bigfoot, introducing us to the true believers and the I-want-to-believers, while seeking to explore why this creature ignites our imaginations, where that fascination comes from, and why it persists.

Yes, Laura. First cousin twice removed!!
Lucky you. Calipers huh?!!! Bwahaaaa. Funny guy. He would be very impressed with you and the nest. I’ll tell him Hi when I get to the Body Farm. Do you listen to Sasquatch Chronicles? You really should. Thanks so very much. Love the podcast.
Host Laura is very anxious to explore the field of sasquatch research and looking for answers to all the questions we want asked. She has an energetic and inquisitive mind, eager to learn as much as she can and share what she finds with the listeners. Please support this podcast !
One of the best podcasts I have ever heard. I would even venture to put Laura Krantz at the same level as Les Stroud; serious thinker but with an open mind.
