Join host Lauren Smith on the Nite Callers as she chats with Craig Woolheater, host of the Texas Bigfoot Conference and Texas researcher.
Craig Woolheater started on his journey in cryptozoology in the summer of 1969 with the strange case of the Lake Worth Monster on the front page of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. He later obtained a copy of John A. Keel’s book Strange Creatures from Time & Space in 1970. He found it influential to his life. Interested in Bigfoot, he also saw the movie The Legend of Boggy Creek. In 1994, his reality came crashing down, when he had a sighting of what he feels was a Bigfoot creature. It occurred while driving back to Dallas from New Orleans on May 30, 1994. He got more deeply involved in organized Bigfootery, and was a cofounder of the Texas Bigfoot Research Center in June of 1999. In 2005, he founded Cryptomundo. In January, 2007, the TBRC reorganized as a 501(c)(3), non-profit, scientific research organization. The organization’s name was then the Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy, which he resigned from in 2010, due to differences with the leadership. On December 24, 2013, Woolheater resurrected the original TBRC, the Texas Bigfoot Research Center. He has appeared on or contributed to several Bigfoot and cryptozoology television programs, documentaries and films. He has hosted the Texas Bigfoot Conferences for nearly two decades.
