The world is full of strange stories and marvelous mysteries, from crop circles to monsters, aliens to psychics.

The claims are big—but are they true? Join "Skeptical Inquirer" investigator, folklorist, and Research Fellow Benjamin Radford as he discusses highlights from two decades of first-hand investigations using forensics, science, psychology, folklore, and more. His recent book "Big—If True" examines 70 mysteries including curses, Bigfoot, reincarnation, chupacabras, Icelandic elves, conspiracy theories, UFOs, miracles, the terrifying Texas Goat-Man, crop circles, subliminal advertising, sea serpents, wandering trees, medical mysteries, and hypnotist thieves—plus a 1990 Elvis sighting.

Benjamin Radford, M.Ed., is an award-winning author, co-author, or contributor to more than twenty books on mysteries, science literacy, and critical thinking, including "Investigating Ghosts," "Scientific Paranormal Investigation," "Tracking the Chupacabra," and "Mysterious New Mexico."
