Yeti: Himalayan Horror or Hiker’s Hooey? | 150

Spread the love

Bigfoot seems to be getting all of the press these days, but what about his O.G. cousin from the far north? The Abominable Snowman or Yeti has appeared in legend, folklore, and adventurer’s stories for years…but what is it? Are we dealing with a, yet unidentified, specimen of ape or bear? Perhaps a hominid cousin we’re not yet aware of? A true snow monster? This week we strap on our crampons and go in search of Yeti. Plus, we learn the origin of C-BOT’S pet, Kyle’s, CPU (it involves a Tamagotchi). Pecker is somehow back in the lower 4th (it probably also involves a Tamagotchi). And we welcome in first timer, Erik Severinghaus, who claims Hysteria 51 is the sole reason he was able to summit Everest (oxygen deprivation is a helluva drug). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t have a pet Yeti…we left the backyard gate open – Hysteria 51.
