S1E2: Bigfoot - Man, Monkey, or Myth?

Almost every culture on our planet has a legend about a giant half man, half ape creature.  Sometimes it's benevolent, sometimes it's indifferent, and sometimes it's dangerous.  

Join me as I tell you what I think about Bigfoot - evidence (some of which is debunked), eyewitness encounters, and hoaxes.
