Last Show Recap

Thunderbirds & Other Creatures

Professor of creative writing at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Marjorie Sandor, talked about her latest work compiling stories from the deeply unsettling to the possibly supernatural and why we love tales that delve into our increasingly unstable sense of self, home, and planet. In the first hour, bestselling author Juan Enriquez discussed how man is in a different phase of evolution and the future of life on the planet is now in our hands.

Thunderbirds & Other Creatures

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - July 20, 2006
Host: George Noory
Guests: Mark Hall, Gary Busey

Mark A. Hall presented reports of Thunderbirds and other mysterious creatures.One cryptoid he's studied is the "Lizardman"-- a 7 ft. tall scaly creature that was reportedly seen in South Carolina in 1988. Hall related the Lizardman to folkloric tales of mermen and mermaids, who were said to inhabit the water yet be able to remove their fish parts like scuba gear when they came on land and sometimes mated with humans.

In the Yukon Territory and Alaska, there are modern day reports of Neanderthals seen wearing crude clothing and carrying axes, said Hall.

Thunderbirds, with a serrated beak and a 15 to 25 ft. wingspan, were likely more plentiful in America in centuries past, when there was a larger supply of bison, he noted. Hall suggested that these birds could be related to Teratornis, a huge predator from the Pleistocene era. He also shared reports of giant owls, snakes and bats.

Gary Busey: In Studio

First hour guest, actor Gary Busey recounted his severe motorcycle accident and subsequent out-of-body experience. He described encountering angelic beings who communicated to him telepathically in androgynous voices. Eventually, Busey said he reversed his earlier position and became an advocate for motorcycle helmet laws.
