17 years ago! This one is a mix of recordings from various SubGenius shows at various stations, including KPFA’s Puzzling Evidence and Cleveland’s WCSB from long before the SubGenius Foundation moved to Cleveland! You’ll hear people who have long since been unpersoned, and much younger voices of people you now think of as old. There’s also some great kook, prank-call and Bad Music material for the bulldada collectors. Hopefully you will be inspired to donate to the WCSB.org pledge drive coming up next week. We could all use a donation, actually. DID I MENTION that there is a SubGenius devival with the Amino Acids in Detroit this November 28, and weekly devivals in Chicago all through December? No? Well, see subgenius.com events for details. And with that, we hop into the wayback machine and vanish, backwards!

Cryptozoological creatures like Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster and the Chupacabra have fascinated and inspired monster hunters for generations, providing endless reports of sightings, unverified film footage and blurry photographs to feed the public imagination. Thankfully, this kind of speculation and storytelling has also given rise to a new generation of skeptical investigators who use the tools of science to dig into monster claims. This week on Skepticality, Derek & Swoopy talk with Benjamin Radford, Dr. Karen Stollznow, and Blake Smith â the team from the podcast MonsterTalk.
Public radio’s Jesse Thorn talks about his new web series "Put This On", a show for men who want to dress like grown ups. In the course of this freewheeling, semi-erotic conversation, Jesse busts myths about men’s style, including myths about when it’s appropriate to wear spats over your Air Jordans, when to slap on a tie (both bow and unbow), why you have time to dress well if you have time to make yourself not smell like poop, and just how amazing the graphics are on your 3DO.
