CryptoLogic Radio – Episode 45 – April Fools & Hoaxes
Happy April Fool’s Day! What an opportune time to discuss some of the more prominent hoaxes and alleged hoaxes in the field of Bigfoot. Join us as we discuss some of the more memorable and infamous examples of this convoluted and mysterious phenomenon that we know as hoaxing. And if you have any favorite examples of trickery and chicanery then please call in and share with us.
Mark Pilkington is the writer and Roland Denning is the co-director to a new documentary on UFO disinformation called Mirage Men. Much of the movie includes interviews with ex-Air Force Office of Special Investigation Agent Richard Doty. Doty says he was part of an elaborate program to disseminate disinformation to Ufologists throughout the 80s. He continues to claim he has official knowledge of the Air Force’s UFO and extraterrestrial secrets. We talk about Doty’s claims, the circumstance surrounding his disinformation, and the UFO mythology which has its roots in Doty’s disinformation and hoaxing campaign.
You can watch the documentary here, and read more about it at www.MirageMen.com.

This Thursday night at 8pm central, we will have on the program the latest, most recent booger sighting encounter, still fresher then hot cow manure, and it ain't Mr. Peeler from Mayberry RFD, North Carolina, who shook his walking stick at a booger trying to get aholt of his dawgs either. No it ain't! There has been one since then in the Indian Territory of Oklahoma by a person who never wanted to ever actually see one! This person swore they did not get into boogering to see one, she done it all for the people she has grown to know and love, but now have been cursed with the fever! "Don't look Ethel! Too late, she already been incensed! Slapped rite upside the head!" Not only did this person see it, her better half and a skeptic (her dawg trimmer and fishing buddy) saw it also, so this ain't a "one person only" sighting. Naw sir, and there was not a jug of corn likker in sight! Maybe some fruit preserves she has been recently canning, but she cannot say she has never seen one now. It is our own Maw Kettle, Shasta, along with Paw, Dan the Man! Join in as they both relate their latest adventure in Oklahoma, where Vicky is now a member of the crazy, lying, hoaxing, booger viewing Southern variety. It will be a treat to finally hear from a very sincere, totally honest, and loved member of this community relating of her adventure. You don't want to miss it!
YOUTUBE USER KINGUFOKID CLAIMS MORE PEOPLE BELIEVE HIS AIRPLANES ARE UF OS THEN THOSE WHO DON'TCALL IN AND GIVE YOUR OPINION.YOUTUBE HOAXERS AND WHY THEY KEEP HOAXING,AND WE WILL FINISH UP WITH WHAT IS A YOUTUBE HATER?.
Filmmaker Suzanne Taylor is part of an international
community of visionary artists, scientists, philosophers, geometers,
educators, writers, and farmers who marvel at crop circles. This
documentary tracks her interactions with these ‘croppies,’
in England, where they converge every summer and go circle-chasing,
indulge in circle-analysis, and talk about why they have
changed their lives because of this phenomenon.
A big question that’s repeatedly addressed is why something so
startling and so spectacular is so largely ignored. Croppies
express their opinions and their frustrations about how the hoaxing of
some circles, and the limitations on our thinking
imposed by a worldview that’s grounded in scientific materialism,
deflect attention from the phenomenon and hamper serious
investigation of it.
Evidence is presented that defies the idea that the circles all are
made by people, and the possible motives of the hoaxers is
a subject for speculation.
The circles are looked at as art, as instigators to reexamine ancient
knowledge lost to a culture separated from nature, and as
coming from a source that is aware of us, delivering formations that
point to events on Earth and in response to whims and
wishes that individuals and groups express.
The most startling revelations we get from the circles come from their
Join me and Jeff Hilling tonight as we discuss the pros and cons of
perhaps the most well known Bigfoot case in
history The Patterson Case
Jeff is convinced the Patterson footage is real and not a man in a suit
as some claim. Jim has spent considerable time researching this case
trying to prove or disprove the validity of the film he has also been
on The Tom Biscardi Show discussing this issue. Jeff welcomes all
feedback whether it agrees with his opinion or not
excerpt from website
1967 Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin film is the second most analyzed
film in world history. Only the Zupruder film of the Kennedy
assassination has been studied more. Was it just a man in a gorilla
suit, or was it really an unknown creature. After 40 plus years, the
952 frames of 16mm film are still hotly debated amongst believers and
skeptics alike. Could an "average joe" former rodeo rider put together
such an elaborate hoax, that has not been disproved to this day?
In 1966 Patterson self-published paperback book entitled "Do Abominable
Snowmen of America really exist?" this established Patterson in the
bigfoot business. Some say if you are in the cryptozoology field, and
do not come up with any substantial evidence, you will ultimately quit,
or resort to "hoaxing" in order to promote your work. (i.e. book,
movie, website, tv show etc.) This is one possible motivation Patterson
may have had for a hoax. On the other hand, a believable hoax would
take a significant amount of funds
