Richard Freeman returns to the show to update us on the exciting expedition he has just returned from on the hunt for the Orang Pendek in Sumatra.

Richard, Carl Marshall and Geordie Jackson, along with their guide Dally spent a month staking out several locations on behalf of the CFZ on the first of several new expeditions the CFZ are undertaking in the next couple of years.

We here about the new witnesses they interviewed, the new locations they explored, a tantalising close encounter and the amazing footage of something totally unexpected that the team stumbled across by accident.

Richard also gives us a sneak preview of his new book, which sounds very weird, to say the least!

Thank you as always to Richard for joining me on the show.

His last book can be found here:
