Ep-233 Timothy Renner Bigfoot in Pennsylvania. News reports from the 1830’s to the 1920’s

6Aug

This week we welcome guest Timothy Renner to talk about his book "Bigfoot in Pennsylvania". Long before the term " Bigfoot" was used to describe our big furry friend, people referred to sightings as Wild-men, Gorillas or Apes. Tim takes a comprehensive look at news paper articles from the 1830's to the 1920's that report encounters with these creatures. We also discuss a variety of other strange happenings in the Keystone state and talk a bit about Tim's fantastic Podcast, " Strange Familiars"
