Aleksandar has an extraordinary knowledge of the strange creatures in our midst, and provided fascinating stories and the history of Bigfoot research around the world during our main episode and After The Paracast.

For someone so young (like 30), he's got a wealth of experience.
Interesting and knowledgable guest. I do question the sasquatch researchers who do look at it from a strictly flesh and blood perspective though. From my opinion there's too many cases that have a level of high strangeness to simply ignore that aspect of it and I find it troubling that a lot of researchers believe the first hand stories that fit in with their flesh and blood narrative but simply refuse to acknowledge those that don't fit in with that narrative.
