Ep. 4: Cryptids

Fear the Batsquatch!  In this lighter episode, Jack and J. J. discuss the grandest cryptids the world over.  From the darkest hearts of Africa and South America to the frozen, piney wastes of Wisconsin, cryptids are found everywhere.  Aside from folksy joking, your hosts also discuss the very real science behind the discovery of new species, and where the boundaries between biology and myth begin to blur.
