The Slender Man is the internet's monster - the subject of countless remixes, tributes, and parodies. He's so ubiquitous he feels like he's been around for ages, like folklore. But Slender Man has an owner and a point of origin. Alex talks to Eric Knudsen, the creator of Slender Man.

I listened to the podcast thinking: this is BS. I've heard stories of the tall white man with long limbs since I was a kid in Mexico in the 80s. My grandmother ever swore she saw him once.

Ah well it was worth a shot. SA still feels like a secret club despite being at the forefront of so much Internet culture.

Negative. We are not protected. We just had a couple SA-related stories we were interested in is all.
