Kentucky Bigfoot Goes International -- Again

Charlie Raymond, international Bigfoot ambassador from
Kentucky Bigfoot visit his group at

Forget Finding Bigfoot, It seems Charlie Raymond and his band of merry Bigfooters at Kentucky Bigfoot are our American Bigfoot representatives to our cousins across the pond. You may remember them escorting BBC news earlier this year, it seems the Irish want in on the action. More specifically, Seán Moncrieff, an an Irish broadcaster, journalist and writer. Moncrieff currently presents the weekday afternoon radio show Moncrieff on Newstalk. Tuesdauy's episode. 

Part of the show was slightly misrepresented at You can read the recap below and listen to the interview yourself further down. In our opinion, and we are completely biased, Charlie did an excellent job fielding the predictable questions we have all encountered. You may want to fast forward to the 23:12 mark to get to Charlies Interview. Once again, we salute Kentucky Bigfooters, we are your biggest fans. Great job Charlie.

Seán Moncrieff continued his speciality of drawing interesting information from the most ridiculous of sources.
Tuesday’s unsuspecting subject on Moncrieff (Newstalk, weekdays) was Charlie Raymond of the Kentucky Bigfoot Research Organisation. The communication methods of Bigfoot (Bigfeet?), we were informed, involve “tree knocking”. One Bigfoot will knock on a tree – an extremely loud noise, apparently – and another in a different part of the woods will respond. Raymond and his fellow researchers emulate this by bashing trees with baseball bats.
“I’ve got immediately a reply back,” Raymond said.
“And you’re sure it’s not an echo?” Moncrieff asked, playing it serious, before asking: “What do you suspect Bigfoot is hitting the tree with? I presume he doesn’t have a baseball bat. Is he bashing his head off it?”
That’s a good question, said Raymond. “We assume they have a large stick, but some other scientists think they might use handclaps.”
Moncrieff drew him out, asking how he knew it wasn’t another researcher hitting a tree – and “Bigfoot could be up some other place, clapping his hands”.
No one can choreograph farce like Moncrieff zipping along with a series of Sunset Beach-esque cliffhangers before the ads kick in. “Up next, robot cats!” he declared gleefully as one’s about-to-switch-over hand dropped in defeat. Robot cats. Well, you’d have to give that a listen.

  1. I regret that he mentioned Ketchum. However, I believe we all will. Remember that her last rumored release is October 18th of 2012.

    A long time ago, I saw the effects of public editing on my H3 Haplogroup on Wikipedia, so I started tracking the information I was finding. The subclades are not updated with the most recent paper of Dr. DM Behar, his second since the beginning of the year.

    Of course, Behar does not work alone. He is processing samples from 100s of individuals, not just a few. His 2012b paper has over 4,000 NEW mtDNA sequences and created about a dozen new subclades in H3 along, including mine, H3t based on my 6776 polymorphism. Mine may be part of the over 8,000 he used already in the base.

    I have been waiting for him to broaden my haplogroup's subclade as long as you have been waiting for Bigfoot's DNA.

    By now many know I am "harping" on this. Some have mischaracterized it as a "vendetta." If you enter the scientific community, expect to be criticized. If you start giving speaking engagements, then you are subject to public scrutiny. I have been doing this with consumer DNA testing for about five years.

    Every time someone mentions Ketchum when she has not demonstrated even a DNA sequence, they set us up for another Freezer Boy Dyer problem and it kills the disciplined research in this area.


Let's keep the language clean, keep in mind we have younger fans and we want to make this the best bigfoot website for bigfoot news and bigfoot research.
