S1E1: Dogman - Fact or Fiction?

Wolves seem to tap into our primal fears.  Myths, legends, and stories about werewolves have been around for what seems like forever, and there are many films about them.  But, they're all just fiction, right?

What if there's a creature out there that looks like one, and perhaps inspired the stories?  There are countless, frightening eyewitness reports of something that looks like a giant wolf that walks on its hind legs.  Could this thing be real?

I'll take a look at one of my favorite cryptids and tell you what I think.

I listened to this Toddcast in its entirety and I've been reading your last name wrong. I've always read it as sort of like the name Lauren with a "z" on the end. Mahn
