The Paranormal Bouquet
Full Preview: We kick things off by finding out how and why Gian, the world's foremost Bermuda Triangle researcher, decided to examine the Sasquatch phenomenon. We dive right intoRecasting Bigfoot by discussing Gian's general thesis and how it is shaped by early Native American accounts of Sasquatch which detail a much different concept for 'Bigfoot.' Gian then traces how those original versions of Sasquatch got confabulated over time and turned into the mainstream version of 'Bigfoot' that we know today.Gian specifically talks about how the explosion of the Abominable Snowman phenomenon in the 1950's, built on remarkably credible evidence, planted the seeds for the birth of Bigfootery in America but also had a deleterious effect on the original (and subsequent) concept of what Bigfoot was. He also discusses how Ray Wallace's fraudulent Bigfoot prints set the stage for additional misconceptions which further twisted the idea of Bigfoot in North America. Gian also details why he believes the Patterson film to be fake and examines why the actions of the principal players surrounding the film suggest that they fabricated a hoax.Having dismantled the popular concept of Bigfoot, we then turn towards what Gian thinks account for some of the various Bigfoot-like creatures reported around the world. Gian starts by detailing the infamous Loysi photo, the story behind it, and how he thinks it fits into the Sasquatch phenomenon. Gian also differentiates the Skookum creature from the Sasquatch legends and talks about what he believes that animal is. Moving on to creatures in Asia, Gian looks at the Yeti and the Almas and talks about what his research indicates about these mystery animals.Gian goes into great detail about the Russian studies of the Almas and how they reveal how the Soviet conclusions were profoundly different from the American perspective but also similar in their flaws. This leads to finding out about the Feral Human / Neanderthal aspect of Sasquatch and Gian recounts the notorious story of Zana, a 'wild woman' that was captured in Russia around the 1860's. Ultimately, Gian ties it all together to show how the combined mistakes of the Russian and American research communities resulted in the obliteration of the Neanderthal suspect for some Sasquatch-like creatures.
