In August 1976, Police Officer Brian Gosselin had a face-to-face encounter with a Bigfoot-type creature on Abair Road in Whitehall, NY. This event set off a firestorm of publicity and has become a landmark case that has withstood the test of time. Brian encountered this creature just 30 feet in front of him, in his spotlight, with his pistol pointed directly at it, but he did not shoot. In “Abair Road, The True Story,” Brian is sharing the events that took place that night along with a great deal of information that has never been shared before.

I will be also speaking to Greg and Greg writes “Hello Wes, I wish greatly that I could maintain a correspondence and tell you how proud I am of your tireless effort in this area, but, unfortunately, I am wrestling w/ sending you an account, an encounter as you call it.”
The encounter took place in 1979 in Texas. The witness had been giving food to a homeless veteran. The witness who was 10 at the time rode with his friends on their bikes down to see the man. When they pulled up the homeless vet was yelling at the boys to get out of there and than he turned and was yelling at something else in the bushes. The homeless man took the food and started throwing it at this thing.
The creature came out on all fours, Greg said “It moved kind of like a spider, it came out of the bushes on all fours grabbing the food and eating it.”
The homeless man took off running. Greg said “I hold so much regret in my heart for giving this man food. I feel like this thing ate this guy and it was my fault. We never saw him again, he left everything behind.”
My final guest tonight is Christopher Noel. Christopher Noel is a Burlington, Vermont-based sasquatch researcher. Noel brings to his study an academic tone, and rightly so. For two decades, this Yale philosophy graduate taught at the Vermont College of Fine Arts.
Chris writes “We need a radically new approach to Sasquatch research. For much too long, we have stereotyped our next of kin, certain that they must confine themselves only to the most remote wilderness, occasionally sneaking up to campsites just long enough to scare the hell out of us before withdrawing once again to the far corners of the forest. Incorrect. Increasingly, evidence is pointing a different way, toward an intimate proximity between our two species.”
We will be discussing Chris’s new book: Next of Kin Next Door: How to Find Sasquatch a Stone’s Throw Away
