Bigfoot in Maine update, upcoming events!

Hi everyone! Well, the air is getting crisper, and with October my work schedule at the shop will settle down, and with any luck I'll be able to take some fieldtrips out into the Maine woods again. I haven't been out to hike and explore since last February (see my posts Maine Wildlife in the Snow Part 1 and Part 2). It's going to be great to get out there again after too many months of too many hours of retail work (ahhhh, the joys of Maine's seasonal economy). 

But somehow along with all the rest of that nonsense, I've managed to squeeze in some awesome, fun interviews to talk about my book, and set aside time in October for some Zoom library talks. I've also continued to interview eyewitnesses for volume 2. 

Here are some links to some of the stuff I've been doing and other events I will be doing soon. Enjoy! 

Fresh out of the gate is the latest episode (#35) of Cryptid Creatures with Brian Brock and Todd Stevens, where they quiz me about what the heck is up with Bigfoot in Maine: 



A little earlier in the summer I had a great chat with Ryan Knights on Episode #14 (darn it, missed Lucky 13) of The Chaos Effect. Hopefully this is one of many!



I also had the pleasure of talking with Paul Bestall on episode 140 of his very intriguing UK podcast, Mysteries and Monsters.  You can listen to it here -- definitely add the show to your list if you're looking for a lot of great conversations to binge! 



And waaaaaayyyy back in May I got to visit with Aleks Petakov (and Nate Brislin!) before Aleks and his team went deep into the Maine woods to explore for Beyond the Trail: Sasquatch in the Pine Tree State.  You can find the episode here!



On Oct 13, 2021 at 7:00pm, I will be very excited for my Zoom conversation with Kathleen Neumann, the Curator of Education & Public Programs at the Maine Historical Society, about what makes this corner of New England such a perfect place for this cryptid to live.  Guests will learn about the ecology and geography that support the legend, and the people forever changed by close encounters with these creatures.  You can register at the link below.


Later in October, at 6:30pm on Wednesday, October 20, 2021, we're going to give things a little tweak and peek over the border into neighboring New Hampshire.  I'll be doing a Zoom talk for the Fortier Library at the White Mountains Community College.  This program is a free Zoom event, and all are welcome.  Preregistration is required at (click the “Register for WMCC Library events here” button).

I'm sure there will be more, but I hope you all enjoy at least a few of these when you have the chance!
