Monster Hunters

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

Monster Hunters

Show Archive
Date: Saturday - February 23, 2008
Host: Ian Punnett
Guests: Peter von Puttkamer, Galen Cook

Filmmaker Peter Von Puttkamer discussed his most recent work tracking six groups of Monster Hunters on a mission to find physical evidence of the Jersey Devil, Chupacabras, and Yowies.

According to Puttkamer, the Jersey Devil legend may have started in the 18th century when a deformed child was born to the Leeds family. There are many reports of people seeing an actual biological creature, he explained, including a detailed account from a fire department that used their hoses to trap the Jersey Devil on the roof of a house.

Puttkamer shared his investigation into the Yowie, an Australian cryptid similar the North American Bigfoot. He said one community he spoke with claimed to have had regular sightings of the eight foot tall hairy ape-man.

Puttkamer also talked about Cadborasaurus and the Naden Harbor carcass, the Tasmanian Tiger, his bloody encounter with land leeches in Australia, as well as his upcoming documentary, Peyote to LSD, in which he explores the untold story of the psychedelic era.
