Please join Undiscovered Beasts and Strange Phenomena Tuesday May 8, as we welcome Cliff Barackman to discuss the Orang-Pendek of Sumatra. For centuries, tribes of the Sumatran forest have reported the “Short Person”. Local villagers and western visitors have reported encounters for at least one hundred years. Usually reported to be about 3-4 feet in height and mostly covered in brown to gray hair, the peculiar primate like animal is said to live deep in the remote mountainous rain forests of central Sumatra. We’ll be talking about Cliff’s and Adam’s various expeditions to this remote locale in search of evidence of the fabled creature. We will also discuss the evidence for the case for existence, and some of the many compelling and fascinating eyewitness reports. The evidence is mounting, and the Orang-Pendek may just be the next cryptid to be documented as a new species. Please join us on May 8 at 9 PM ET (6 PM PT) for this very exciting broadcast.
