Since the early days of European arrival, hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people have claimed to have seen a two-metre tall, hairy, ape-like figure stalking the Australian bush, right across the country. So what is this mythical creature we know as the yowie? Join us as we look at the legend and meet a man who has devoted decades tracking it down.

Host: Chris Hook

Producer: Malin Hägglund

    Serial is a podcast from Serial Productions, a New York Times company, hosted by Sarah Koenig. Serial unfolds one story - a true story - over the course of a whole season. The show follows the plot and characters wherever they lead, through many surprising twists and turns. Sarah won't know what happens at the end of the story until she gets there, not long before you get there with her. Each week she'll bring you the latest chapter, so it's important to listen in, starting with Episode 1. New episodes are released on Thursday mornings.
