On this week's edition of Get Illuminated! we chatted with Loren Coleman. As BB readers know, Loren is the world's leading cryptozoologist who has spent the last four decades studying "hidden animals," from Bigfoot and Yeti to Nessie and Chupacabras, and the culture surrounding them. He blogs about his curious findings at Cryptomundo and is the author of seventeen books, including my favorites Bigfoot: The True Story of Apes in America, Mysterious America, and Tom Slick: True Life Encounters in Cryptozoology. We spoke with Loren about how he became a cryptozoologist, what it means to be a Fortean, recent tales of Sasquatch, the case of the Dover Demon, and why the world is getting weirder.
