A Conversation With Gary Cook: This episode came about quite unintentionally as I was researching the Patupaiarehe episode. A gentleman’s name kept popping up in my search results. Finally, I took the hint that spirit/universe, or whatever term you wish to use, was throwing in my face, literally with every search for information on NZ fairy folk, his name was there. I looked at his website and got his contact details…. Took a deep breath and thought, well, the worst he can

Episode 12: The Patupaiarehe

The Patupaiarehe: When I started this series of episodes on NZ Cryptids, it was only ever meant to be a one off episode. But as I started researching these subjects, it just took on a life of it’s own and I realised that I couldn’t do these subjects justice in merely one episode. As I mentioned previously, this would be the last in this series on New Zealand cryptids, and also my favourite subject in this area…. Supernatural beings are a part

Then I’ll discuss briefly Anomalous Big Cat sightings in New Zealand, and there have been very many of these – which continue to this day. Actually it was sightings reported in the NZ media in the past couple of months, of this huge cat,  that actually

Episode 10: The Moehau Man

The Moehau Man: When I started researching NZ cryptids, my plan was to produce only one episode. I honestly was unaware of how many cryptids NZ had, apart from the Taniwha, that pretty much every single New Zealander has at least heard of, in one capacity or another. So I was really shocked to discover how many we have, and I realised that one episode would not do them justice in the least. I also learned that some of our cryptids have

Episode 9: The Taniwha

The Taniwha: Humankind as a rule, loves mystery. We love things that are unexplained – unknown to us, perhaps unseen, but by a few. We love to find out the stories behind these mysteries, perhaps in hope of being the one to solve them, if only for our own satisfaction and sense of curiosity and wonder. Although, because of our love of mystery, sometimes we create one out of nothing. But is that the case with strange and unusual animals that have
