Saturday, UWM Ballroom West
Moderator: Sanjay R. Singhal (Beyond the Forest Radio). Panel: Author and researcher Linda S. Godfrey, Jay Bachochin (WPI Hunts the Truth), Larry and Jen Dopke (WI chapter of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization).
Bigfoot, one of the star cases of cryptozoology, has been spotted in states coast to coast and, according to our panel, is no stranger to Wisconsin. Our panel consists of people who have actually gone out into the field in Wisconsin to locations like Kettle Moraine State Forest and beyond to seek evidence of this elusive mystery. They’ve had some interesting encounters along the way and will share some of the unusual (and at times frightening!) experiences they’ve had.
Our panel includes:
Linda S. Godfrey, cryptozoology researcher and author of classics like The Beast of Bray Road: Tailing Wisconsin’s Werewolf, Weird Wisconsin, American Monsters, and many more.
Jay Bachochin of the investigation group WPI Hunts the Truth has led several expeditions looking for Bigfoot and is wrapping up a documentary on his search titled Into the Woods.
Larry and Jen Dopke are leaders of the local branch of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO is the group represented on the show Finding Bigfoot) and have led several Wisconsin expeditions for the organization, in addition to filing reports from witnesses. (See an example HERE from earlier this year.)
Our moderator Sanjay R. Singhal is an investigator and host of the Beyond the Forest Radio show, in which he shares his own experiences and talks to other field researchers.
You can catch Sanjay interviewing the Dopkes TONIGHT (Aug.2) on Beyond the Forest.
Additionally, a trailer was just released for Into the Woods, that stars panelist Jay Bachochin and documents his research along with Mary Marshall, who we’re glad to say is also a 2016 guest speaker.
