We head out to discover a cryptid we’ve never covered before in the company of our good friend Richard Freeman.

The Gul of Tajikistan is a hairy bipedal hominid that has been seen for centuries across this mountainous land locked central Asian republic and has a reputation for violent encounters across the region.

Richard tells us about the two expeditions he’s undertaken with colleagues from the Centre for Fortean Zoology and the witnesses and encounters they heard about. The area is also alleged home to an alleged extinct big cat, the Caspian Tiger, but this is also being reported too.

Thank you as always to Richard for joining me this week.
