SPECIAL TREAT FOR ALL [BIGFOOT] FANS
Benjamin Radford and Cryptozoologist Loren Coleman will be conducting a special discussion Panel at the event about the recent Bigfoot Body Hoax in Georgia since both men were interviewed numerous times during the incident [by] several National media outlets. Believe me when I say no punches will be pulled during this discussion. Questions will be taken from the audience.

Above is the official announcement about this. A little background: I’ve been on the speakers list for months, and when they added Ben on Friday, as opposed to the created drama of a debate, I threw out the counterproposal for a panel to discuss the events and details of the recent media circus on Biscardi’s Folly, the Georgia Bigfoot hoax, something we could both agree on and discuss reasonably. If anyone here is attending the Lexington event, let me know. I’m looking for a media personality and one other Bigfoot researcher for the panel. ~ Loren
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
