Used to be good
It’s sad to see that they continue to produce this show after it jumped the shark. The early episodes are good: great guests, great analyses, cryptid focused shows. But they moved away from that and have largely been focusing on monsters in fiction and film (under the guise of “folklore”), and it’s just not interesting. I would expect “the science show about monsters” to be just that. Listen to the first couple of years and then eschew the rest. At the very least, I feel the creators could have ended Monster Talk and started a different show with a more accurate (and relevant) title and description. But, if you like listening to people talk about movies, then maybe this is for you. If you’re looking for skeptical and open minded discussions about cryptids, look elsewhere.

Whether your a skeptic, or a believer Monstertalk is both funny and informative. Blake, Ben, and Karen keep open minds while conducting their interviews even when dealing with the most hard core believers. A great podcast that has lead me to numerous great books on all sorts of topics.

Hopefully you'll take up Mekele Membe (and other 'lost' dinosaurs) as a topic soon and answer such mysterious questions like why do...Read full review »
