74: #074 The Padding Issue
In this issue Buttons gives his masterclass on padding - which is so good that even the internet takes up the skill. There's busy exorcists and satan himself rating apps, Mona Lisa gets cake on her face and Rhys gets a LinkedIn. Also in this ep - Dolphins don't get memories from dolphin-piss, whales do get mistaken for monsters by showing their bits and Buttons don't want you to buy his old Alien book. Oh, there's also some meagre scratchings at some Cryptid news too... but it's all pretty lame... but at least we're honest!

73: #073 The Synchronicity Issue
This issue is packed with synchronous happenings at the Erich Von Däniken and Sphinx Eyes magnitude! Buttons shares a long story about a short visit to a UFO symposium where he encountered a Loyal Brown Pet in a beat up Porsche. There's news of robot goo, robot goats and robot cryptid food deliveries. Also - Rhys has reports of a Turkey sighting from a Squatch hunter, Dan's found a video of Cousin It pretending to be a hand-standing skunk and Buttons has exciting sports news!

72: #072 The Alleged Issue
Aaaaaaaaand we're back!!! This episode begins with a recap on xmas presents then quickly moves onto old pubs closing, spoon benders PR attempts, artefacts found in ice caves in Antartica, fish driving cars and making 90's techno noises.... and hitchhiking dogs (allegedly). Also, Rhys and Buttons make a plea to be adopted by Dans dreaming Dad, there's a tree swinging Aussie Dogman, a psychic Wimbledon Nessie, and a tiny-tiny Mothman. Enjoy! **NB - This episode was originally recorded back in January 2022, but was thought to be lost to the ravages of bad audio (and bad organisation), but with the help of a wonderful Cryptid Knight (Shout out to Jen Jones!) it's alive! **NB - This episode was recorded before the war broke out in Ukraine. Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by that tragedy.

71: #071 The Belated Christmas Issue
Due to Buttons being busy having a southern hemisphere summer holiday, this Christmas special clearly is well late (which he apologies for profusely) but it's worth the wait - not least due to the amazing ____________*1 as well as the ____________*2! In here you'll find news on time travelers from Mars, theoretically Anthrax ridden conspiracy theorists and auto-replicating Pacman-esque xenobots made from frog cells... in a dish non the less! Also; some new Bigfoot footage from Georgia along with some old footage from a cowboy, alien bases below the ice, an expletive ridden speed sighting and a Jelly fish with 30ft mouth-arms... or is it arse-hands... you decide!

70: #070 The Pick-a-Path Issue
Welcome to Ep 70 where we try and 'choose our own adventure' through segments and end up picking a bad path. No doubt you'll find yourself just as confused and lost as we were. In the mess we somehow manage to cover multi-crash planes, almost crashed ISS space station, recaps on birds and marriages, a UK bigfoot and the hatching of decades old dormant underground shrimp eggs. Also, Dan levels-up to 'premiere grade' whilst Buttons levels-down to a 'back-sider'. *New Segment alert* Weird animals doing strange things! (the animals are normal, what they do is weird). First episode covers Bovine hydro-slides and Possum kidnappers.... as in, it's the nasty possums doing the 'napping!!

69: #069 The Challenging Issue
We're back! After a long break from the shortest season ever (of 1 episode), we bring you EP 69 where you'll find a bunch of terribly challenging awards, hippos challenged to be human and a magic museum thats a challenge to find. There's also challenging news of Nessie sonars and Mamophants. To be quite honest though, the most challenged things in this ep are simply the three rusty hosts. Thanks for enduring this mess with us!

68: #068 The Come Back Special - Bumper Issue
An incredible 'Schreiber Unveil' was meant to see this episode be all about the phenom of ‘Past Life Experiences’, but as per usual, we just couldn't stay on task - so now this episode also includes the art of 'No Blink' and 'Light Cry' acting, Coast Guards with hamster wheel problems, and experts who will never reply to Buttons ever again. Oh, and some zombie fish and stolen penises thrown in for good measure. Enjoy the extra 30mins it took to get that all in!
59 minutes | Aug 10, 2021
67: #067 The Buzz Bingo Issue
Ep 67 has some great finds in it - Dan finds the Alien Sex capital of the UK, Rhys finds a nazi tank in a basement, and Buttons finds the elevator service hut in Superman's Building. We also shoe-horn in a Jet-pack Re-cap, a Fairy/Theory Time, a Rapisode Sandwich and a Sci-fi Robot Rangers Prequel - before the 'quel' is even quelled!
73 minutes | Jul 29, 2021
66: #066 The Quoting Issue
In this ramshackled episode, Rhys fails to deliver Rapisodes, Dan fails in health and Buttons fails to be articulate. Also you'll find a kidnapped Nanna raised by Monkeys, AI Robots meeting Aliens, and Elon predictions from 1953. Also a Bigfoot crossing a river carrying a deer or two babies and a big(ish) cat let loose by a pig buddy. Enjoy!

65: #65 The Missing Pigeons Issue
Welcome to episode 65, where we're lucky Rhys is present due to self inflicted partying - and lucky Dan is alive due to self inflicted poisoning! Also in this ep you'll discover 50 pilot sky-spider collectors, lots of lost pigeons, an eating restrictor/ventriloquism training device and we find prehistoric man Dennis Oven in a Chinese well! Also Loch Less news and a spooky Slenderman in India. Ooooohhh! *Trigger warning* We discuss weight loss and dieting, if this is triggering for you - perhaps sit this one out.
55 minutes | Jun 28, 2021
64: #064 The UAP Report Issue
Welcome to the UAP Report special edition. This episode was recorded live as the Pentagon released it's long awaited report on the UFO/UAP situation - and as you'd rightly imagine, we cover the report with delft professionalism and deep insight - Dan even reports live from Buckingham Palace to check if the Queen comments! Also in this ep - Rapisode 5 (yay!), invisible sculptures, a real life Tarzan, Astronauts seeing Sky Serpents, and Rhys invents the revolutionary 'Audio Signature'!
71 minutes | Jun 22, 2021
63: #063 The Paradox Issue
Episode 63 is here at last! 'Rapisode 4' kicks it all off with an almighty bang, closely followed by Rhys telling tales of Whales eating Lobstermen, Dan teaching superhuman 'Batman' skills, and Buttons paradoxing his way to no friends. Lots of exciting (and global!) Bigfoot news to boot!
73 minutes | May 1, 2021
62: #062 The IIVI Issue
In this jammed-packed, over-time issue we kick off with the next ep of the Rapisodes. Then Rhys gets an annoying internets service inserted in his head - then Dan gets a haunted book - then Buttons brings joystick monkeys. Then we hear of over-loved chandeliers, fireproof artwork fire-suits, misplaced space trees and cryptid croissants. We then get a small tease of a big cat hunt and an important notice in the noticeboard. So just a normal episode really. Enjoy!

61: #061 The Other Podcasts Issue
Well, If you hoping this show wouldn't get any more chaotic - then we have some bad news for you. In here Rhys busts out the worlds first Rapisode, Dan gets fooled by a Schnart, a Badger and a River Walrus, and Buttons reveals his get rich quick scheme - painfully slowly. Theres also intel on how to become immortal, a Squatch thumb bone under a rug in a river, an Uncle skeletal guitar, and questions about Big Cats in Thrupp. All this - whilst the hosts are simultaneously hosting other podcasts!
57 minutes | Mar 29, 2021
60: #060 The Long Dong Issue
Well, it was only a matter of time that the show went to the gutter and the guys started resorting to toilet humor, and sadly, this show is it - though apparently it's all in the name of science(!!). Outside of that nonsense, there's also some normal nonsense - like glowing mermaids, a new 'official' Loch Ness sighting, a Mothman sighted on Google Maps, and some new lifeforms sighted in the space station disco lounge (??)
66 minutes | Mar 15, 2021
59: #059 The Poignancy Issue
In this jam-packed issue; Rhys has mic issues which leads to news stealing and a new branch on the 'Poignancy Tree'. Ships in the sea start flying and Slugs in the Sea lead to a new proverb (and possibly a new tee-shirt). All this plus super fresh alien big cat news, increases in Bigfoot bounty and Rhys reads old fan mail. Phewf!
47 minutes | Mar 6, 2021
58: #058 The Pitakinesis Issue
This week there's the usual stolen Alligator heads and space news... but the REAL highlight in this issue - Rhys brings back the long lost art of Pitakinesis with an actual live on-air *science* experiment!! Also, with Tasmanian Tiger photos jamming up the internet, we actual get to discussing actual Cryptozoology on a show about Cryptids! Will the wonders actual ever cease?
72 minutes | Feb 25, 2021
57: #057 The Birthday Issue
Well, It's a very special day at the Cryptid Factor! Firstly, we're back from a wee summer break, secondly a Mars rover landed, and lastly and leastly... it's Buttons Birthday! To celebrate, Rhys brings his Grandad along, Dan brings many diversion facts, Buttons brings his new birthday floral shirt. Also in this issue - Nasa gets its rover stolen, Blackholes get blacker, Blackpool gets an Ancient Alien Disneyland, the Area 51 farm is up for sale, Pentagon give up their UFO secrets, and the 5th Dimension gets found. Woahzers! Enjoy!
76 minutes | Dec 20, 2020
56: #056 The Utter Chaos Issue
Just as the title says - this has to be the messiest, most chaos ridden episode in quite some time. Arguments about re-caps, pre-caps and updates, disagreements about a cat being a dog or a cat-dog... oh and Buttons gets kicked off the Internet and is relegated to a privileged listener. Also, more on the monolith craze, retired Israeli security chiefs giving the goss on UFOs and the dying art of Iron crotched kung-fu. Wowzers!
62 minutes | Dec 1, 2020
55: #055 The Ho Ho Ho Issue
It's Ep 55! Where Rhys steals monolith news, Dan speaks of pole vaulting defectors and Buttons brings the tone down with sad satellite dish news. Also, you'll learn about a never to be seen cryptid exhibition; hear about an incessantly muffled Santa; and enjoy yet more Bigfoot braiding! Yay!
