What is cryptozoology? We break it down in this episode with the cryptozoologist and musician Lyle Blackburn.

Lyle basically studies the phenomenon of unconfirmed monsters – think Bigfoot, Loch Ness Monster, and he even told me about a dinosaur that lives in Congo. I don’t know, my mind is open! There’s been a ton of Bigfoot sightings in Texas, and it’s cool to talk to someone who knows about this stuff.  

He takes it all very seriously, it’s all pretty fascinating, and I really enjoyed Lyle’s professionalism and expertise in this.   

“As long as I don’t die, it makes a good story.” – Lyle Blackburn
