S2 E5: Organism 46-b

This time, on Counting Cryptids:

We discuss secret alien bases, movie plots, and what could be the most horrific "discovery" ever, Organism 46-b. The story of 46-b, better known as the Vostok Monster, was born from an actual scientific expedition, in which researches drilled into the ice in Antarctica for decades to access a sub-glacial lake, that had been covered in ice for an estimated 20 million years. Upon examination of the lake, the crew was met by something horrible; a 33 foot long, 14 tentacled, squid-thing, that was out for blood. The creature allegedly killed several members of the crew before finally being captured, and sent off to the Russian government to be examined, and potentially weaponized. While contradictory information, lack of evidence, and bad science point to a hoax; the unnamed crew members, government conspiracies, "missing scientist", and obfuscated information lend credence to this creepy creatures continued existence. So join us, Cryptid Counters, as we dive into what we know about lake Vostok.
