Call in to speak with the host
For a creature whose very existence is still in dispute, Bigfoot sure has been in the news a lot lately. Whether it be the viral Provo Canyon, Utah video, the equally controversial Vermont orchard mother/baby images, or Melba Ketchum's DNA analysis alleging Bigfoot is a human/unknown hybrid that popped into existence just 15k years ago, the big guy is a hot topic.
FINDING BIGFOOT, Sundays at 10pE/P, is one of Animal Planet’s top-performing series ever. The fascinating and entertaining show, starring the Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO) - president Matt Moneymaker, researchers James “Bobo” Fay and Cliff Barackman and skeptical scientist Ranae Holland - recently returned for the second half of its Season 2, with 20 all-new episodes that take the team farther across the globe and further into sasquatch history than they’ve ever traveled.
We'll be speaking with Cliff and Ranae about the show and all things squatchy.
Cliff started camping with the singular purpose of conducting Bigfoot research in the '90s. On his first expedition to Bluff Creek, CA in '94, he stumbled across possible Bigfoot footprints, tree damage evidence, and a hair sample. Cliff's background in biology led him to take a keen interest in footprint casts, and over the years he has amassed one of the largest cast collections in the country.
A research biologist by training, for nearly a decade Ranae has studied aquatics and fishery in the Pacific Northwest. Ranae hopes her presence on the show will help the team apply proven scientific methodology and protocol to their expeditions.
It's good to talk.
