Disgraced Monster Studies professor Dr. Anton Jessup has made it his mission to bridge the unnatural world of monsters to the natural world of science. Through pirate transmissions and underground VHS tape syndicates, his lectures continue to circulate.

So let us collect his first series of lectures here in one place for easy viewing. We do not recommend watching them all simultaneously.

About the Author: Robert Lamb spent his childhood reading books and staring into the woods — first in Newfoundland, Canada and then in rural Tennessee. There was also a long stretch in which he was terrified of alien abduction. He earned a degree in creative writing. He taught high school and then attended journalism school. He wrote for the smallest of small-town newspapers before finally becoming a full-time science writer and podcaster. He’s currently a senior writer at HowStuffWorks and has co-hosted the science podcast Stuff to Blow Your Mind since its inception in 2010. In his spare time, he enjoys traveling with his wife Bonnie, discussing dinosaurs with his son Bastian and crafting the occasional work of fiction.
