Last month, Finding Bigfoot aired an episode in Whitehall, New York, a place well known for Bigfoot sightings. On July 16th, manchesternewspapers.com had an article that was an interview with Paul Bartholomew, who was interviewed on the show.
Here's the start of the interview:
"Q: First, just give us your overall impression of the episode.
"A: I think it went well. I think Whitehall came off in a favorable light. It acknowledged that we have this history here and that Whitehall has now become synonymous with the creature phenomenon and I think that's a positive thing. If you go back to the Algonquin and the Iroquois that talked about stone giants or the giants of the mountains, so this is a rich history we have here, right up to modern sightings. So, I think it's something we should embrace. That was the rationale of the legislation that we passed, acknowledge this phenomenon and that we educate people about it, so it's not something to be ashamed of if someone has a sighting, that they know other people have had similar sightings and that it is something to be embraced."

I, too, thought the Whitehall episode was a good one.
