Three best buddies - Rhys Darby, Dan Schreiber, and Leon 'Buttons' Kirkbeck bring you The Cryptid Factor - a podcast dedicated to all things weird that are yet to be defined by science. Since 2008 they have passionately (and often awkwardly) been discussing 'cryptids' and monsters like Yeti, Chupacabra, Bigfoot and Nessie - as well as weird news of the world, UFO's, Time travellers, robots and space stuff. Though they take these pseudo-sciences as seriously as they can, they struggle to take themselves seriously at all. Hosted by comedian and actor Rhys Darby, star of top rating podcast 'No Such Thing as a Fish' Dan Schreiber - and Pulling it all together is their best friend, 'Buttons'. If anything goes wrong, it is probably his fault.

  • Never know what I’m listening to 🤣

    Each episode is a crazy ride. It’s like climbing into these best friends heads for an hour or so and learn a few things about crytids. I have never laughed so hard while questioning mine, and their, sanity. It’s my favorite!

  • Really irritating presenter

    I’ve listened to three episodes, after a lot of effort and the presenter who talks nonstop through his nose, over everybody else makes it unlistenable. Maybe if they had a comedian onboard it would help but I doubt it.

  • Wholesome dads

    What’s not to love!? They are so wholesome, funny, and make you wish they were all your dads! I love cryptids and when I found out my favorite actor had a podcast about them with his friends I was over the moon. Keep putting them out if you guys can and I’ll be waiting to laugh along.
