Tonight Finding Bigfoot Looks For Ghosts

Dana Matthews and Greg Newkirk

"For the last few years, we’ve been convinced that Bigfoot is a ghost. We realize how it sounds, but trust us, there’s a compelling case for the supernatural squatch." --Greg Newkirk; Planet Weird 

In an official press release Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot announced they are going into the paranormal aspects of bigfoot research:
The Search for Sasquatch Returns to Animal Planet with Two-Hour Premiere Thursday, March 31, at 9 PM ET/PT

(Silver Spring, Md.) – A man, a myth, a legend? Animal Planet’s FINDING BIGFOOT investigates new theories and never-before-squatched locations as the bigfoot team, Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO) president Matt Moneymaker, researchers James “Bobo” Fay and Cliff Barackman and skeptical scientist Ranae Holland, return with explorations so big they have to recruit family, friends and others to join the search parties. All-new episodes of FINDING BIGFOOT return to Animal Planet beginning with a two-hour special on Thursday, March 31, at 9 PM ET/PT.

In the March 31 premiere “Supernatural Bigfoot,” the bigfoot team heads to North California to meet up with another group of bigfooters – the Supernatural Bigfoot Group – which believe the only explanation for the lack of physical evidence is that bigfoot must be beyond this world.
The supernatural group consist of Greg Newkirk and Dana Matthews. For you long-time readers you will remember Greg Newkirk was on our radar over 5 years ago when we first covered his online zine Who Forted?, an excellent zine with great writing and interesting articles. Their college-level humor was a refreshing take on all things paranormal.

Looks like Mr. Newkirk has taken a more serious approach to Fortean phenomena with a two new websites; Planet Wierd, a website chronically his adventures with Dana Matthews and a weekly aggregation website of paranormal news at WeekInWierd.com.

You may also remember Mr. Newkirk for his Bigfoot documentary The Bigfoot Hunter Still Searching, and our review here.

  1. Hey, Guy! Thanks for the kind mention of us and "Still Searching"! I can't wait to hear what everyone thinks about the episode, it's a strange one, and we're thrilled that we could be a part of it.

    Fun fact: WeekInWeird.com is actually Who Forted, we just rebranded last year because too many people didn't get the Charles Fort reference. It's a bit more serious now, we're just... well.. not as snarky as we used to be.

    I wish I could make it out to Hopsquatch sometime, but I'll see you at in Salt Fork in a couple months! I'll buy you a beer then and make up for it.

  2. I, for one, got the Charles Fort reference. I also like snarkiness. The episode was interesting. Good to see my friend Kathleen get some time on-air. Bobo stole the show!

  3. A guy dies and is sent to hell. Satan meets him, shows him doors to three rooms, and says he must choose one to spend eternity in. In the first room, people are standing in dirt up to their necks. The guy says, "No, let me see the next room." In the second room, people are standing in dirt up to their noses. Guy says no again. Finally Satan opens the third room. People are standing with dirt up to their knees, drinking coffee and eating pastries. The guy says, "I pick this room." Satan says Ok and starts to leave, and the guy wades in and starts pouring some coffee. On the way out Satan yells, "OK, coffee break’s over. Everyone back on your heads!"
    ==== have fun!
