Stories date back centuries of wolf and dog-like creatures that have preyed on humans and animals alike. Everyone knows the fables of the werewolf, but have you heard of the Nalusa Falaya? We talk about all these terrifying creatures and share some of the eye witness stories from the people who have seen them.

People are disappearing in cannabis country, and bigfoot might be to blame. We have a candid conversation about the recently released Hulu true crime documentary "Sasquatch", where three cannabis farmers were found ripped apart and torn limb from limb, and it was all blamed on the local bigfoot.
