THIS WEEK, MonsterTalk continues its discussion of the intersection between science and cryptozoology. The hosts interview Dr. Donald Prothero and Daniel Loxton, who are working on a book that will give a deep overview of the field of cryptozoology and how it intersects with actual science. This interview was recorded at The Amaz!ng Meeting 8 in Las Vegas. Topics discussed include:

[*]Monster Quest’s search for M’kele Mbembe
[*]What does the theory of Omphalos have to do with Nessie?
[*]Most likely cryptids to actually exist
[*]The role of the amateur in real science

Ben Radford and Blake Smith will be appearing at Dragon*Con 2010 recording a live episode on Saturday September 4th at 4:00 pm. They will also be attending the 2nd annual Jeff Medkeff Star Party on September 2nd. If you’re attending these events and listen to the show, please stop by and say hello! Or Humptydoo!

Yes, the sci-fi pop culture convention — which is so huge that it has a full four-day skeptics' convention embedded within it.
