David Floyd is an Associate Professor of English at Charleston Southern University, where he teaches British fiction. He earned his PhD from the University of Stirling, Scotland, and is the author of Street Urchins, Sociopaths, and Degenerates: Orphans of Late-Victorian and Edwardian Fiction. David has published work on medieval, Gothic, and Victorian literature and presented at conferences in England, Scotland, and the US. He is currently pursuing a second PhD, in psychology, through the University of Helsinki.

David has spoken at the Ohio Bigfoot Conference, last year’s Virginia Bigfoot Conference, and will speak at 2017’s International Bigfoot Conference. He has also appeared several times on the SasWhat podcast. His primary research deals with the consistent presence of bigfoot-type creatures in folklore and legend throughout human history, and the theory that, far from being merely some psychological archetype or cultural emblem, that there is a substantive, biological reality behind the accounts of this mysterious creature. His presentation for this year’s conference focuses on swamp-dwelling Bigfoot.


Gunnar Monson is a long time Bigfoot researcher. He is the lead investigator of the Tillamook Forest Research Group (TFRG) as well as a member of The Olympic Project.  He is also the founder of Monster X Radio sponsor, The Sasquatch Coffee Company (www.squatchcoffee.com)

Born in Scotland, Shane Corson's interest in cryptids began at an early age. His 2011 sighting while on a fishing trip in the Mt. Hood National Forest only served to fuel his passion for the pursuit. Shane is a core member of the TFRG as well as the Olympic Project. (www.olympicproject.com)
