This episode revisits the Bigfoot naming circus and discusses the latest news on the identity of the Yeti. Flat earth testing is delayed and pointless, nonetheless. We also discuss “scientism” and how the real news gets corrupted under the barrage of crazy tweets.
A former ghost hunter is nominated for a Federal Court position; Bigfoot is given a new name according to zoological rules by a pendulum healing specialist; and, the flat earth convention took place in North Carolina.

Jumping right into news of the same silly TV schtick being sold to audiences, what paranormal beliefs are popular with Americans today, two former rock stars now exist at the fringes, and DNA test failed a psychic who thought she was the offspring of a famous painter.

We also examine the Wendigo/Windigo creature of Native folklore that has been invoked as a town monster in Manitowoc, WI. Full show notes are at doubtfulnews.com
