Dallas has always told me that Bigfoot spans the globe, and this weekend that was confirmed. I was really happy to make a few new friends in New Zealand – David Farrier, Rhys Darby, and Buttons – and had a fun time chatting with them on their radio program, “The Cryptid Factor.” Below you’ll find the interview in its entirety. (All of you Bigfoot fans out there should tune in regularly to their show for lots of crypto-discussions, interviews, DVD reviews, and plenty of antics! It airs 9am-11am on Sundays in New Zealand, which equates to 4pm-6pm CST on Saturdays. For more info, check out “The Cryptid Factor” website.)
About the hosts, David Farrier and Rhys Darby
While David and Rhys are both funny guys, from talking to them I can tell they also clearly have heart, and I truly appreciate that. In addition to hosting their Bigfoot/cryptozoology radio program, they also have other pursuits. You probably know Rhys from his acting roles. (He’s one of my favorite new actors, in fact.) Rhys stole the show in “Yes Man” as Jim Carrey’s boss Norman and played Murray Hewitt in “The Flight of the Conchords.” He’s currently appearing in lots of HP commercials. (Do yourself a favor and check out his Robot Cool Trick on “Yo Gabba Gabba”.) David is a TV reporter covering arts, entertainment, and technology for TV3 in New Zealand, and he’s also a documentarian. It sounds like he’s covering lots of stories about interesting people like Dallas and Wayne over in New Zealand. (You should check out a story he did about the all-robot band The Trons.)
On to the interview….. It’s about 11 min. in total so we had to divide it up on YouTube. Enjoy.
