Outer core: These Yetis

V–A–C Sreda online magazine continues its three-month series of podcasts dedicated to earth and its variety of meanings, associations, and interpretations in culture, art, folklore, and science.

In this episode, we talk about cryptozoology. Why do people search for mythological creatures? Where do Mothman, Chupacabra and Wolfdog live? And what happens if you go for a walk dressed as an imaginary animal?

V–A–C Sreda editor Maxim Shibaev discussed these and other questions with Eugene Koblik, a senior researcher at the Zoological Museum of Moscow State University and candidate of biological sciences, Ilya Butov, a candidate of agricultural sciences and coordinator of the Ufokom project, and Serafima Sazhina, an artist who works with fantastic plots and the symbolism of the unconscious in her artistic practice.

The podcast features a fragment of the “Misanthrop” composition by Blod Besvimelse.
