Beastly Theories (Ep.59) Life is Better Beneath the Waves - with Jeremy Sanborn

December 21, 2021

This was a great chat that I had with Bigfoot investigator, Lake Champlain and Lake Monster lore aficionado and professional diver - Jeremy Samborn. Although conducted earlier in the year, it was never published due to my heavy writing schedule and the proceeding loss of our mutual friend, Scott Mardis. I hope you enjoy listening to Jeremy's unique view on cryptozoology and his awesome investigation and diving techniques.

Beastly Theories (Episode 57) To Hull & Back - with Colin Keelty

May 4, 2021

Join me as I catch up with likeable lycanthropy researcher - Colin Keelty.

Colin's initiation into cryptozoology and the paranormal happened in the 90s, after being stalked, by what he describes as an emaciated 7ft. tall bipedal wolf, while walking along a country lane at night.

Colin decided to go public with his experience about 10 years ago and has since dedicated his life to revealing the identity of these mysterious creatures that pepper the pages of the paranormal history of the British Isles.

Colin's research covers everything from cryptids to ufology to the paranormal.

Beastly Theories (Episode 55) Paranormal Police - with Andy Rawlins

Beastly Theories (Episode 55) Paranormal Police - with Andy Rawlins

March 9, 2021

Join me as I chat with Andy Rawlins, a retired rural policeman.

Andy shares his strange encounter with a UFO, that left him and a colleague terrified one night whilst driving the country road between the villages of Sturton By Stow and Marton, in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England.

Andy also recalls his own sighting of one of Britain's elusive Big Cats and his struggle to engage his superiors, at that time, in the need to make the public aware that large predators could be roaming the British countryside.

As a former policeman, and an artist and photographer, Andy skills in observation and detail make him a compelling witness of these strange phenomena.

Enjoy!

Beastly Theories (Episode 54) Rewild your Life - with Tom Sewid

Beastly Theories (Episode 54) Rewild your Life - with Tom Sewid

February 16, 2021

Join me as I chat with Sasquatch Island's - Tom Sewid. A Kwakwaka'wakw Indian. Tom talks about his life before Bigfoot, his experiences in one of Canada's infamous 'schools' for first nations children, his decision to embrace his roots and live in the wilderness of Vancouver Island and his experiences with the Dzoonakwa (the Kwaiutl name for Sasquatch) and Bukwus; a small bipedal hair covered creature.

Tom's knowledge of Sasquatch behaviour and the seamless way in which he connects the dots between tribal folklore and modern day reports of these creatures, paints a picture, clear for all to see, of a creature that has been ethno-known from time immemorial.

Enjoy!

BEASTLY THEORIES - is a low tech, low key, low brow endeavour; to discuss the highs and lows of Cryptozoology research and obsession. Although 'podcast' in name, the 'show' is more of an exercise in nepotism, as I seek conversation with those embroiled in the subject I am chiefly interested in and to avail myself (and you) of the prize of knowledge, that lies inside their brawny brains. Beastly Theories is an umbrella dweller under the Beasts of Britain canopy!

Beastly Theories (Episode 50) Beasts in our Backyard - with Mike Potts

Beastly Theories (Episode 50) Beasts in our Backyard - with Mike Potts

November 2, 2020
Join me as I chat with Beast Watch UK's - Mike Potts. We discuss the important work BWUK play in rescuing and rehousing exotic escapees/releases, with their team of nationwide volunteers that specialise in exotic animal welfare and management. The perils and pitfalls of owning popular exotic pets. The DWA, 1976, The Invasive Species Act, DEFRA and the environmental conditions that need to be present for an invasive animal species to become established in a country like Britain.
 
Mike also gives some great tips on animal tracking, trap setting and a few words of advice to counter some of the obvious confirmation bias that exists within the cryptozoological community.
 
"BWUK (BeastWatch UK) is a National voluntary organisation whose members are concerned with the investigation into sightings of non-native animals in the UK. We can also provide support to owners of missing exotic pets & assist in their recapture as well as dealing with animals which appear abandoned. We will also deal with wildlife emergencies."
