Cryptid Zone 5: Chupacabra

December 1, 2017

In this episode we discuss the mysterious CHUPACABRA ("goat sucker"), the legendary livestock exsanguinator of the Americas. We trace from its origins in Puerto Rico, across the ocean to the United States, and then around the world, and conclude that, to be honest, it's not all that.

Please donate to the ongoing recovery efforts in Puerto Rico here, if you can!

Cryptid Zone 4: Mokele-Mbembe

October 27, 2017

This month on Cryptid Zone we talk about Mokele-Mbembe, or "one who stops the flow of rivers". It's a creature from Congo River basin folklore, considered a cryptid mostly by Europeans and Americans. We spend most of our time discussing various attempts to hunt it down — and how some of these attempts are motivated by creationism.

In this, the maiden voyage of the great ship Cryptid Zone, Lois and Jeremy discuss the infamous Jersey Devil. Is it the demonic, cursed progeny of the Leeds family? A government experiment gone wrong? Just a weird kangaroo? We have no idea, but oh boy we sure do talk about it for a while.
