This episode of Monster Men is such a big event, we had to present it in two parts. This time out we interview renowned monster hunter Lyle Blackburn, author of THE BEAST OF BOGGY CREEK and LIZARD MAN. His books are must reads for fans of cryptozoology, urban legends and monsters.
Lyle Blackburn Part 1: The Lizard Man
Lyle Blackburn Part 2: The Beast of Boggy Creek
In part one of our interview we focus on the Lizard Man, the mysterious monster of Bishopville, NC. Lyle investigated this case firsthand and his stories and accounts from actual witnesses will astound you. He’s got every angle covered and his book is fascinating.
In part two of our interview, we discuss Lyle’s true passion, the legendary Fouke Monster of Boggy Creek. Ever since Lyle saw the movie “The Legend of Boggy Creek” as a kid, he has been fascinated by this Bigfoot-like creature that lurked the very swamps near where his family would vacation. Now Lyle is a leading authority on this topic and his book, THE BEAST OF BOGGY CREEK, is the definitive source on the subject.
Naturally, it would not be an episode of Monster Men if we didn’t do a little movie and TV talk. We also discuss some of Lyle’s favorite horror movies, monsters and TV shows and find we have a lot in common with him. We also find out what it’s like to hang out with the guys from FINDING BIGFOOT.
We are sure you’re going to love this episode. We sure did. After the show, be sure to check out Lyle’s books. For all things Lyle Blackburn, you can visit his website at www.lyleblackburn.com

Man, was I thrilled to interview Lyle Blackburn on the Monster Men. He is fast becoming a legend in the field of cryptozoology, and he’s a damn fine writer to boot. We spent over an hour talking monsters, so we broke the interview up into 2 parts. Enjoy!
