Derek Hayes, the host of Here There Be Monsters Podcast hails from Los Angeles, California but originates from the backwoods of Southeast Ohio. He’s worked in the film industry for 10 years in addition to producing oddity inspired artwork on the side. An chance encounter when he was 10 years old drives his passion in the cryptozoology world and inspired him to create Here There Be Monsters Podcast as a way to learn more and hear stories from all over the world.
Episode one focuses on the existence of black, panther-like creatures that reportedly roam the Ohio Valley countryside. Host Derek Hayes explores several options for the origin of these mystery beasts which include an exotic animal massacre at the hands of armed sheriff’s deputies. Several callers offer their unsettling accounts and the host spins a yarn of his own in this first of many shows that focuses on a new creature or new mysterious region each week.
