For many decades, stories about large apelike creatures in the remote forested regions of America have persisted. Commonly known as Sasquatch or Bigfoot, many would rule out the possibility that a creature so large and similar to humans could have evaded detection by humans, let alone exist in the modern world at all.

Is this prospect really so unlikely? While many are very accepting of the notion that UFOs exist and represent a credible pursuit for science, Sasquatch is far more often relegated to myth and folklore by academics. Joining us to discuss the necessity for the pursuit of Sasquatch and the application of science to the mystery is researcher Matt Pruitt, a member of the North American Wood Ape Conservancy. Matt joins us to present the case for the serious study of Sasquatch on this week’s edition of The Micah Hanks Program.
