The Monster Talk Podcast

The other day I ran into the science show Monster Talk:

Monster Talk is the science show about monsters — a free audio podcast that critically examines the science behind cryptozoological (and legendary) creatures, such as Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, or werewolves. Hosted by Blake Smith and Dr. Karen Stollznow, MonsterTalk interviews the scientists and investigators who shine a spotlight on the things that go bump in the night. For once (and unlike mystery-mongering television shows) a monster-themed program gives skepticism more than just a couple minutes of lip service!

The show is around since 2009 and judging by the episodes1 that I have been listening to so far right up my alley. Seemingly well researched analyses and eventually debunking urban myths and legends. Think of it as a science version of Lore.

Subscribe to it on iTunes link or find more info as well as the RSS feed on their website.

  1. So far I have been listening to only a few episodes and the episode A Wolf in the Fold is an interesting histroy of the werewolf lore. 
  2. More on that show and some other recommendations in an upcoming post.
