We've talked about potential extra-terrestrial life, and now we're talking about potential extraordinary terrestrial life. The search for, and study of, mysterious or unknown creatures - or cryptozoology - is our subject of interest this week. We take a generous look at this often-mocked fringe pseudoscience by exploring the known, real animals who were once thought to only be creatures of myth and legend.

And then we make fun of some of the wackier cryptids.  Like these:

Humans are portrayed in most extra-terrestrial science fiction as puny, weak, insignificant, and utterly outclassed by any and all offworld explorers who happen upon them. This week, Carissa and Evan ask: what if humanity isn't a pile of crap but is, instead, terrifying and bewildering to our galactic neighbors? Maybe we are the horror movie villain of ET's nightmares, and we set out to explain why we might not be the primitive hairless apes of most modern science fiction.

Humanity! Fuck yeah!
