Love the randomness and humor. Pretty bad for actual cryptozoology research, but it has the crazy, outlandish, and absurd “theories” and commentary that I love. To all those who gave poor ratings, learn to laugh and that this show obviously is not supposed to be a rigorous project on proving cryptids and providing facts.

fun !

Read more

This month on Cryptid Zone we talk about Mokele-Mbembe, or "one who stops the flow of rivers". It's a creature from Congo River basin folklore, considered a cryptid mostly by Europeans and Americans. We spend most of our time discussing various attempts to hunt it down — and how some of these attempts are motivated by creationism.

In this episode we discuss the mysterious CHUPACABRA ("goat sucker"), the legendary livestock exsanguinator of the Americas. We trace from its origins in Puerto Rico, across the ocean to the United States, and then around the world, and conclude that, to be honest, it's not all that.

Rank #7: Cryptid Zone 12: Melon Heads

Podcast cover
Read more

On this episode of Cryptid Zone we discuss Melon Heads, which are creatures from North American folklore. They're wrapped up in a lot of gross ableism, so we spend most of the episode avoiding talking about them in favour of improvising a blues song and talking about cats. Also, Lois formally debuts the regular feature "Lois Overexplains Bad Films About Cryptids" (we're workshopping the title).
