In 2012, popular radio personalities Jeffery Pritchett and Andy Colvin invited a number of prominent Bigfoot researchers onto their wild and woolly show, The Church of Mabus, in order to get a handle on the controversial Bigfoot scene. Praise for the Hairy Man: The Secret Life of Bigfoot (named one of the Top 10 Cryptozoology Books of 2013) is the result of this intensive yearlong examination.
Using a simple "10 Questions" interview format, the authors provide a useful snapshot of this burgeoning field of research. In these colorful discussions, Pritchett and Colvin - who have both seen Bigfoot and experienced a variety of paranormal phenomena over the course of their lives - ask the difficult questions point-blank, yet delicately extract many secrets about the elusive creature from researchers like Dr. Jeff Meldrum, Sali Sheppard-Wolford, Kewaunee Lapseritis, Barton Nunnelly, Jeffery Wells, Lyle Blackburn, David Paulides, Christopher Munch, Nick Redfern, Christopher Noël, Brent Raynes, Ross Hamilton, Freeman Young, W.R. Matts, Stacy Brown, Jack Barnes, Julie Scott, and the Bigfoot Chicks.
But this audiobook is more than just an overview. Pritchett and Colvin also deliver extended, free-form interviews with groundbreaking investigators such as Ken Gerhard, Stan Gordon, Dave Coleman, Thom Powell, Kathy Strain, Ardy Sixkiller Clarke, Thomas Hughes, and Jim Marrs, taking the listener into uncharted realms of Sasquatch high-strangeness: the Bigfoot-UFO connection; the possible role of ancient aliens in the genetic history of the Yeti; the sex habits of Sasquatch; reports of Bigfoot telepathy, shapeshifting, and flight; the "pro-kill vs. no-kill" debate; the widespread Native American belief in Sasquatch; and the controversies surrounding Bigfoot DNA - whether or not the Hairy Man should be recognized as an endangered species.
