Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 120 The Loch Ness Monster with Ken Gerhard

Spread the love
After two years, we finally tackle the UK’s most famous cryptid in the company of Ken Gerhard. Ken has recently released his latest book “The Essential Guide To Loch Ness and other Aquatic Cryptids” and we dive into the history of Nessie since she first came to the media’s attention in 1933.   

We cover some of the famous early sightings, THAT photo, the famous cryptozoologists who have joined the search for this enigmatic creature and Ken’s theory on what Nessie could possibly be.   

We then hop across the Atlantic Ocean to look into another aquatic beasty allegedly caught on camera more than once, Champ. Lake Champlain’s own mysterious creature has been reported for the best part of 300 years and we look at the Sandra Mansi incident, some notable sightings and the work people like Katy Elizabeth are doing hunting for the USA’s top aquatic monster.
