Ep. 316, Jerimiah Fountain - New York Bigfoot Researcher

April 12, 2021

Join me as I speak with Jerimiah Fountain, New York Cryptid Researcher and Podcast Host. 

NOTE: My audio is a little low in the beginning but levels out shortly after that. Working out the kinks of new equipment to bring you all a better show!

Jerimiah was always taught the ways of woods. His Gramm would tell him stories of the bigfoot and other cryptids in the Mohawk lore. He enjoyed the stories until one day at the age of 7, his mother showed him a picture in a book called mysteries of the unexplained. There was a picture of the famous bigfoot by the name of Patty and from that point on he was obsessed. He was always a believer. But he didn’t become a knower until he had his first encounter in 2000. Jerimiah has researched all over the country and experienced many of the same things from different types of this creature. Since his first sighting in 2000, Jerimiah has witnessed and had up close and personal experiences with several other Sasquatch as well as other entities as well if that's what you want to call them.

Jerimiah teamed up with Gary Spikes, Travis Bowen, Israel Barreto, Nate Rudd, Corey Rudd, JR Kitchen and Shawn Wilson to start a collaboration group. This is a collaboration of Jerimiah’s group which is called “On The Trail Cryptid Paranormal Research Group”, Gary's group “D3 Productions”, and Nate's group “Washington Idaho Bigfoot Research Society”. They run three shows are about to start more projects called “On The Trail - In Search of Living Legends”, which is their interview show talking to people that have had encounters of many different types of beings including Bigfoot. They also have the scoop session round table which is a discussion group strictly on Bigfoot topics. In addition to that, they also have the CIS the Cryptid Investigation Society. Which is Jerimiah, Gary, and an affiliate for a certain agency who is a forensics investigator. Lastly Gary and Jerimiah just started the new show which will be released very shortly called “The Bigfoot Tribal Tribute with Fountain and Spikes”. Jerimiah is married to paranormal investigator, fellow Cryptid Investigator, and best friend Stacey Fountain. They have been married for 6 years and have schooled each other in each of their fields and become very well rounded, which adds to their research.

Ep. 315, Tate Hieronymus Bluff Creek Project

March 29, 2021

Join me as I interview Tate Hieronymus of the Bluff Creek Project!

Tate Hieronymus, is originally from Kansas City, MO, but ended up moving to Des Moines, IA which he adopted as his home. There, he grew up around music and played music most of his life. Iowa is where his interest in Sasquatch started, primarily with the Patterson Gimlin Film. Tate ended up moving to California where his Bigfoot research really took off. Tate eventually made it to Bluff Creek with his Dad and a couple friends. It wasn’t until the second time he went, he accidentally ran into Tom Yamarone, Terry Smith and Cliff and Bobo from Finding Bigfoot. A few more times of going back up to Bluff Creek, around 2017, he ended up meeting the guys from the Bluff Creek Project and joining the group. Tate made a short documentary film about the BCP (Bluff Creek Project), and was able to get an interview of Bob Gimlin standing in front of the Big Tree that can be seen in the PG Film. It was a great addition to the film. The full interview is one of a kind, according to Daniel Perez, which per request had Tate write a little bit about that interview for the Bigfoot Times. Only 1 minute and 32 seconds are publicly available. The full 6 minute interview is not. The full interview can be seen at the North American Bigfoot Center in Boring, OR. In his time living in California, Tate was able to join the BFRO.

Tate has had a few encounters as well. One in Bluff Creek and one in Southern California which he was able to obtain a thermal video. The thermal video will be released later this year (2021) in a new film he currently working on. Tate eventually moved back to Iowa where he started doing more music. He joined a band called The Paddlers, and became the guitar tech for a band called The Envy Corps. When COVID hit, and Tate suggested to BCP guys that they should all should start a podcast and that’s when the Bluff Creek Project Podcast was made and Tate has been doing that since.
