Found these guys last week. Really good. Surprised to hear Darth Vader taking a leak during episode #144! 😂😂🤘
Welcome to the Cryptonaut Podcast hosted by Marc Storrs, Chris Carnicelli and Rob Morphy. Exploring everything from Aliens, Cryptozoology, Cryptids, Ghosts, Monsters, The Occult, Paranormal Phenomenon, UFOs, Ufology and Unsolved Mysteries .... all while keeping a close eye on our reptilian overlords that dwell in the flat, hallow, robot infested Earth. This is the Cryptonaut Podcast.
These guys are the best (thanks to Monsters Among Us Podcast for letting me know about them). Just 3 friends having some beers talking about the things they enjoy. I love all things they discuss but unfortunately my friends and family love sports and I would be shunned if I tried to talk about this over Pittsburgh Steelers Football. Thank you guys for an outlet for my need of all things Cryptid. I patiently wait every week for a new episode every Monday morning that I listen to on the drive into work. Could you please do an episode on the Kelly/Hopkinsville Encounter? It’s one of my all time favorites and I would love to hear your take on it.
would be five but he is sooo annoying and interrupts waaaay too much.. and word on the streets is he has an inverted penis and puffy nipples.
These guys are so cool! I love their energy. They have a great repartee together, and it feels like we are hanging out together for an evening around a fire or at a bar for a few drinks. I love that the episodes are jam-packed with info and bite-sized. I have been binging the past few days, and it is so great! Keep up the wonderful work. Much love!
Love the stories. Great energy, great voice tone. Fun energetic entertaining stories, BUT every 2-3 sentences includes F in some form or another. 1 sentence contained 3 versions. I can’t play this around the kids. Since I have to hide my listening and be concerned about young ears over healing, I just decided it is easier to not listen. Sorry, lost this listener to your F words...
I’m new to podcasts and this one is super perfect for a geek like me, it gets me through my day I listen while I cook drive work or just hang out at home, the hosts are awesome I’m 40 episodes in from episode 1 I listen to at minimum one to two a day. Can’t WAIT to get to the most recent 2020 episodes. Keep going strong bro’s
The hosts have great back and forth while discussing interesting topics which makes the best combination in my opinion. Epic cryptozoology and conspiracy lore
In all seriousness, listening to these guys reminds me of hanging out with a couple of dear friends in the 90's who are now deceased. We'd sit up all night in a dirty garage chugging Dr. Pepper, laughing, discussing the unexplained and breaking each other's balls. Seriousness with a healthy dose of goofing off. It was a blast. The gentlemen in this podcast are obviously old friends and it makes each episode shine. The fact that they dig up the really obscure, weird stories makes it even better. They always drop old horror film references, too (check out their sweet rendition of Ro-man in the thumbnail) so I officially wanna have a beer with them. I'm a 45-year-old horror and monster freak laughing maniacally all night just from listening to these guys. It's truly great stuff.
I am a stitcher user on iphone so I had to get on here to help support the podcast.
I have started listening from the first episodes and decided to make my way through the whole library of content.
This has greatly helped with being stuck at home working remotely to support the grocery industry.
Thank you gentlemen!
Before I praise the content let me point out the amazing connection these casters have with each other. Their style of humor compliment each other and they differ in opinions but in the best way possible!
The content is well researched. They give out the story as it is and they give their opinion without trying to make something cannon that isn’t. Not overplaying any hype but they are passionate about their content and it shows.
You guys got a subscriber! Gonna check out the merch! I don’t do merch often at all but I believe in these guys vision and commentary.
Nestled somewhere in the pantheon of paranormal podcasts is a group of cavorting cryptid critics whose love for fear & beer makes their show unforgettable. Rob, Chris, and Mark are a truly tumultuous trio providing nonstop thrills and chills for all things weird. Keep up the great work, boys! Choose life, choose love!
I was listening to this paranormal podcast as I was on the loo, as I had assumed (and rightfully so) the content betwixt my earholes would speed me along with the dangerous task at hand. After several intermissions and much effort in excreting my business, I hastily stood forth and turned to face the dreadful depths before papering my battle worn stern (as we all do). To my absolute astonishment... there was no bounty to be seen! Not a squirt, not a pebble, not a single dingle to sway! I was furious. What manner of paranormal thievery was this? Ultraterrestrial? Had my dookie been 411nd? Or was it Bruce Willis all along? My poor, dear, sweet dookie... I hardly knew thee...
The first episode I listened to was about The Devil Monkeys while I was driving home through the Pocono mountains. When I got there I made my way inside as fast as I could. I was hooked.
This podcast is perfect for fans of cryptozoology, paranormal and extra/ ultraterrestrial phenomena. The stories are incredibly well told and the tangents the guys go on are hilarious. Great audio quality and a hell of a theme tune.
I am slowly listening through the back catalogue and will most likely relisten during my cross country honeymoon. Hopefully visiting some of the locations of the phenomenons.
Just do it
What’s up with the sound quality? This is the only podcast that is like -9db lower then everything else I listen to. Volume knob goes up but then I get a bit of a hissssss. Maybe a noise gate and normalize your recordings to 0db!
Oh and the content is ace! Only pod that does the dead dive on the more obscure stuff!
So much fun to listen to you guys. Just like sitting around your living room, garage or bonfire pit listening to your friends talk. I only wish I could participate because I find myself talking back constantly. Keep up the great work guys!
These gentlemen obviously are the happiest podcasters on the planet. I never miss an episode!
For me it was not about the cryptids enough and more about these guys trying to be funny and talking over each other. Seems like you got about a minute about the actual creature and the rest was a mishmash of talk, and not more sightings or stories of the cryptid. Just not for me.
These three warriors of truth and justice are a blast to listen to! I love the banter between them which makes you realize these dudes are true friends. I can listen to these guys in the background all day whether it be at work or home doing some household chores! Love this pod and these 3 fine gentlemen even if Mark’s “alleged moon” statements sometimes make me want to smash my head into a wall! Keep it going guys!
P.S. I got the theme song as a ringtone and so many people ask about it. I point them towards Chris’ musical genius and the podcast!
Great podcast! I listen to a lot of podcasts at work. However I refuse to sully my enjoyment of this gem while trying to multitask. Cryptonauts is reserved for my pure unadulterated enjoyment at home. The banter and chemistry between the guys is hilarious. These Cats will have you laughing out loud. The stories are unique and well told. Do yourself a solid and listen!
Entertaining and surprising. It’s not even just about the topics, but about how smooth the conversation flows (or derails.) The review doesn’t just stop at the podcast, their T-shirt designs are refreshing and unique. Keep going strong!
Great podcast both funny and informative. The fact that they cover lesser known cryptics instead of going over the same ones over and over again. Also the way they approach the subject saying that they want proof of debunked things just like the proof you would want to prove it’s real is a nice change of place and makes it all the funnier with the way they go down the rabbit hole.
As some one who is genuinely obsessed with Cryptids and mythological creatures, I love this pod. It has humor to keep you engaged but also is based on information that can be “documented”. My favorite is how you guys try to actually debunk the Cryptid like is it even plausible to exist, versus the people that raise the Cryptid flag and say oh for sure this exists. 100% how I get through my work day
I have an hour commute to and from a not so thrilling job, but you guys actually make me look forward to Mondays. I anxiously await being enlightened about enigmatic entities once unfamiliar to me. Thank you for making me laugh out loud like a complete fool in my car. You guys are the best.
I found the guys through Monsters Among Us (thanks Derek and Addy). A lot of times, hosts just think they’re funny, but Marc, Chris and Rob actually are. Yes, they talk about cryptids, and yes, they know all about them and know weird ones you’ve never heard of. But let’s be honest. We’ve all heard ‘casts with know-it-alls who go on and on and they’re boring or have zero charisma or are technically inept and sound like garbage (after all these years, why do you still sound like you’re calling in to your own show on a pay phone? You know who you are), or their cohost is a tool. Not here! These guys are the real deal. Funny, informed, and never boring! Viva el Crypto!
Marc, Chris and Rob’s banter is CLEARLY out of this world. The way in which the stories are told make you feel as if you’re sitting next to them, having a conversation with old pals. Easily one of my all time favorite podcasts.
P.S. Rob: Talk to your agent! As an aspiring filmmaker myself, I would love to see you all turn this into something like a mini series!
Cryptonaut is essentially an R-rated version of Astonishing Legends if it was done by The Howard Stern Show. The hosts have great chemistry, and present weird, esoteric topics in a way that they are both interesting and factual. I’m hooked and it’s going to be my next binge.
Discovered this podcast about a week ago and have been bingeing it since. I’m currently at episode 35 and can’t wait to listen to the rest. I’ve been a fan of cryptozoology since I was a kid when my elementary school librarian introduced me to the subject and love how you guys talk about the one offs and the really weird ones. I love the friend dynamics you guy have going, and if you ever visit Eastern Washington I would love to buy you guys a beer or three.
These guys are awesome! Like others have said they make me laugh out loud at work which makes my coworkers look at me funny but man screw those guys. I love the rabbit holes they go down and the bickering and when they talk over each other. Their friendship shows through and it’s very endearing to me. And despite all the comic value the research done is great and while they they’re silly at most of the times, they still seem to treat the subject with respect and not like it’s all a big joke. But yeah awesome show and I’m glad to be a Patreon supporter as well as an avid listener.
Can’t get enough of you three!!! You make the work day seem so much shorter, I catch myself laughing out loud at your hilarious banter back and forth! So I get to listen to a comedy with cryptids mixed in! You guys are number 1!
Deep dive into cryptids, demons, and of course Ultra-terrestrials. Unique cases but great detail, packaged with a heavy dose of humor. Find myself laughing out loud while listening at work. 5 stars is not enough. Keep it up guys.
Alas the travails of listening to this back catalogue and all those of podcasts associated with this gem!
Lots of info on cryptids, with a sprinkle of fun. You literally listen to three friends discussing sightings while having amazing time.
I found this podcast by random looking to satisfy my cravings for missing persons with no shoes. I downloaded the cowman episodes and then soon downloaded all the episodes. I work long hours and listen to about 25 different podcasts. Unfortunately I can no longer listen to other podcasts. I find my mind wandering back to these three stooges and their witty commentary and arguments between themselves. It is mystery science theater without the screen. I binge listen to these fools for hours a day. I try to ignore the constant cursing, sometimes I think I need to shut it off but then I hear Chris go into his professor voice while Mark is laughing in the background, and I find myself laughing out loud with tears streaming down my face while my coworker just stares at me in wonderment. I even turned a young kid from church onto this podcast. He is on a mission in the Dominican Republic at the moment and I get messages from him that simply say, “Big Lou!!!” Lord forgive me. Thanks for opening my mind to so many stories I would have never came across on my own. Keep it up!
Sincerely, Ron of the North
Amazing podcast..the guys have me laughing to and from work..keep up the great work. Best podcast ever!! Hail the crypto kingpins!!
After listening to a couple shows with interesting topics and funny banter with references to Krull, The Lost Boys, and Big Trouble in Little China, among others, I’m hooked!
Spooky and very entertaining. Thumbs up.
Even if you listen to tons of other pods about cryptids/aliens, I can almost guarantee you haven’t heard a lot of these cases.
Also, pretty funny!
Just started listening and I'm only a few shows in (so i have a lot of catching up to do), but already hooked. Great information and told in a way that keeps the stories entertaining. Thanks for the added knowledge.
Combining obscure, rarely heard tales of cryptids with eloquent storytelling, sprinkled with just the right amount of cuss words and pop-culture references, this podcast is now on the top of my listening list. The references are often from my era (yay, 80s!) and the rapport between the three hosts is just right. Friendly occasional jabbing, but clearly between people who have a real affection and respect for each other, yet you never feel like you stumbled into a private conversation where you’re not welcome. Keep it up guys, and thanks for making my daily drudge tasks much more enjoyable!
Kinda ruined the experience with the swipe at The President. It would be nice if I could just enjoy a podcast without a host interjecting their political bias. I don’t wanna know your opinion on the matter,especially when the podcast has absolutely nothing to do with politics. I was enjoying it up until that point. If I want politics I’ll listen to something on the subject with the understanding that opinions on the matter will be given. Don’t like being blindsided with the topic when I’m listening to something I expect to be silly.
Outstanding. Listening to these guys is like eavesdropping on the cast of Stranger Things all grown up....and drunk!
I rarely listen to every episode of a podcast — I’ll usually listen to subjects or topics I’m interested in and skip the rest. Not the case with these three crypto boys. They amuse and interest me even if I have no idea about the particular monster-of-the-week. Keep it up, my dudes.
I binged every episode in less then a month after running out of DND podcasts and now all I think about is cryptids. It’s an amazing work of art but only gets 4 stars cause the plugging of their sites and stuff at both the beginning and end of EVERY episode gets annoying and time wasting very quickly.
A friend of mine recommended this podcast to me the other day and I haven’t stopped listening since. These guys are hilarious and the topics they discuss are all interesting and I’ve never heard of most of what they talk about before. Definitely recommend to anyone into the unknown!
Good time with a bunch of real dudes covering mysteries I haven’t heard in many podcasts. But......... what does Chris do? “I don’t know!?”
I finally started listening (on episode 9 RN) and these guys are cool. I heard about them from Cryptid Crate when i got their business card in one of the boxes. Their banter is laugh out loud hilarious and quotable and they have smart discussions on the monsters, with both believer and skeptic POV’s for them. Plus, they have covered some monsters i have never heard of before and i’m always happy to find cryptids i have never heard of.
PS: I am from Missouri and if you guys haven’t done it yet, it would be cool if you guys covered some monsters from my state. Momo and the Joplin Butterfly Women are two interesting ones.
I’m a new listener (currently on episode 12: Gargantuan Gliders) and I’m OBSESSED! The hosts, Marc, Chris, and Rob are hilarious with their takes and asides on every phenomenon and they make you feel like you’re part of the conversation. Every episode of the show features a new monster/alien/story that I’ve never heard before, which keeps the show unique and interesting. I stream this podcast every day on Spotify during my commute to work, and I’m trying to convince my boss (who is a HUGE Bigfoot fan) to listen to this show next!
Thanks for the great podcast! I can’t wait to catch up on all of the episodes!
Hosts are good and the subject matter is also really good as well At first I was a little put off by the banter and cross-talk but once you get used to it and feel out the group dynamic it’s actually really good. Like the sense of humor (to be honest their sense of humor reminds me of my D&D buddies and I), and really enjoy the balanced mindset of skepticism vs believing. Great work!
