Journalist Laura Krantz doesn’t believe in Bigfoot. She’s trained to be skeptical, and all the best Sasquatch sightings and photos have been debunked. Then she heard about Grover Krantz, a serious academic and long-lost relative who had spent his career researching the possibility that an upright, bipedal hominid had once roamed the forest. Some of the evidence was pretty compelling, and so Laura dove into the subject headfirst. The result is Wild Thing, a nine-part series that takes a good hard look at what exactly we know and don’t know about Bigfoot, and why some form of this legend persists all over the world.
