Back in the Saddle Aginn
I'm pleased to announce that my invitation to Dr. Jeffrey Meldrum has finally been accepted! He has a really busy schedule, but we finally managed to get him to make room in his schedule to be on the show. He'll be our next guest on The Paracast.
I'm sure most of you have heard of Meldrum. He is one of only a handful of fully credentialed scientists to publicly conduct Bigfoot/hairy hominid investigation and research. He is a courageous trailblazer and is one of the world's foremost experts on the subject.
Jeffrey received his B.S. in zoology specializing in vertebrate locomotion at Brigham Young University (BYU) in 1982, his M.S. at BYU in 1984 and a Ph.D. in anatomical sciences, with an emphasis in biological anthropology, from Stony Brook University in 1989 (then referred to as State University of New York at Stony Brook). He held the position of postdoctoral visiting assistant professor at Duke University Medical Center from 1989 to 1991. Meldrum worked at Northwestern University's Department of Cell, Molecular and Structural Biology for a short while in 1993 before joining the faculty of Idaho State University where he currently teaches.
Meldrum has published numerous academic papers ranging from vertebrate evolutionary morphology, the emergence of bipedal locomotion in modern humans and Sasquatch (Bigfoot) and is a co-editor of a series of books on paleontology. Meldrum also coedited From Biped to Strider: The Emergence of Modern Human Walking with Charles E. Hilton. He edited the textbook From Biped to Strider (Springer, 2004)
Meldrum has attracted media attention due to his interest in Bigfoot. Skeptic Brian Dunning writes that "The work of responsible scientists like Dr. Meldrum is exactly what true skeptics should be asking the Bigfoot community for, not criticizing him for it."
This is the QUESTION only thread, so please post your QUESTIONS here. We will be taping tomorrow, Wednesday at 4 PM MT
