Tate also discusses his forthcoming documentary series, "A Search for Sabe," and shares some of the locations that are chronicled in the series.

Daniel Perez: Bigfoot Times, Bluff Creek, and Beyond | ST 028
In this very special installment of Sasquatch Tracks, the team is proud to welcome longtime researcher Daniel Perez to the program, a historian and chronicler of the Sasquatch subject and editor/publisher of the legendary newsletter Bigfoot Times.  According to Perez, The Bigfoot Times is "where you go when you need to know!" when it comes to the subject of Bigfoot. As of January 2022, Bigfoot Times  has celebrated an incredible 24 years of continuous publishing, which Perez points out that "Few -- if anyone -- can make that claim." In an era where the majority (if not virtually all) publications dealing with the Sasquatch subject are found exclusively online, Perez's lasting contributions with Bigfoot Times have long remained a cornerstone for innovative discourse on the Sasquatch mystery. Our conversation with Daniel Perez covers everything from the early beginnings of The Bigfoot Times (which you can subscribe to online here), to his in-depth research into one of the most famous and controversial films of all time: the Patterson/Gimlin film of 1967, which purportedly depicts a large, female Sasquatch at Bluff Creek, California.

On this episode of Sasquatch Tracks, the team is joined by the legendary Thomas Steenburg, a veteran Canadian researcher who has devoted decades to the pursuit of North America's mysterious relict hominoid.  Steenburg's journey began at a young age following his early fascination with Hammer horror films, although his very serious interest in the study of Sasquatch from early adulthood onward has put him in touch with many of the true "giants" in the field, which includes legendary names like John Green, Rene Dahinden, Peter Byrne, and many others. Steenburg remains an active researcher and lecturer on the subject, and frequently spends time in the field searching for tracks and other signs of the elusive beast, in addition to documenting eyewitness reports that he transcribes and keeps on file.  Thomas Steenburg is the author of several books on the topic of Sasquatch and also hosts the show "On the Shoulders of Giants" where he interviews other researchers and a wide range of other guests.  Stories and other links discussed in this episode:  The Official Website of Thomas SteenburgBOOKS: Sasquatch: Bigfoot: The Continuing Mystery Sasquatch in Alberta: Bigfoot in Wild Rose Country In Search of Giants: Bigfoot Sasquatch EncountersSteenburg in Reader's Digest: "Searching for Sasquatch" Follow Sasquatch Tracks on Twitter.
