Episode Summary

EDIT
Eugenie Scott: Bigfoot and Other Wild Men of the Forest
AIRED:
Bummer. The recent claim by two Georgia men to have discovered the remains of a Bigfoot corpse turned out to be a hoax.Sure, you didn't fall for it, but somehow a couple of blockheads and a frozen gorilla costume did manage to capture public attention and create a minor media stir.After all, Bigfoot, Yeti, and hordes of other cryptoid missing links have been igniting human imagination for ages. Even the most skeptical of us must wonder if it's possible there really could be large, undiscovered primates on earth, still unknown to us humans.Can we be so sure we've found them all? And if some enticing evidence presented itself, how would we test it scientifically?Tonight physical anthropologist Eugenie Scott will help us answer the question of whether or not we might one day be able to welcome some long lost relatives to the family tree.This event is presented in collaboration with the Bay Area Skeptics - Ask a Scientistmoreless
