Talking Weird

The Paranormal... UFOs... Monsters... Mysteries... From a cabin deep in the North Woods, it's TALKING WEIRD, with your hosts Dr Dean Bertram and Jenn Dorrell. Join us for insightful, strange, spooky & fun conversations with fantastic guests every episode.

Apr 17, 2020

Lyle Blackburn, leading cryptid researcher and author, joins Dean and Jenn to discuss his highly anticipated upcoming book SINISTER SWAMPS: MONSTERS AND MYSTERIES FROM THE MIRE, some of his previous seminal works, including MOMO: THE STRANGE CASE OF THE MISSOURI MONSTER and THE BEAST OF BOGGY CREEK: THE TRUE STORY OF THE FOUKE MONSTER, and his involvement with several Small Town Monsters documentaries. The conversation delves into Lyle's deep knowledge of Bigfoot type creatures and other cryptids, as well as some of the stranger theories and cases of cryptid research: including paranormal interpretations, three-toed creature tracks, Missouri's own “Minnesota Iceman”, weird parallels between the Fouke Monster and the Kelly/Hopkinsville Goblins, and other disturbing cryptid related attacks and disappearances.
