Join co-hosts Adam Davies and Julie Rench as they welcome highly acclaimed author Max Hawthorne and our very own Scott Mardis, to explore the dark and forbidding depths of our oceans in a bid to make a case for an extant population of the super-predator Megalodon. Once thought extinct, could this leviathan of the seas still roam freely in the vast oceans of our planet? There may be reason to believe that may be just the case. Please join us as we look at the evidence, review testimony, and closely examine the case for Megalodon!

Scott Mardis has been an active field investigator of the Lake Champlain “Monster” since 1992. He is a former sustaining member of the defunct International Society of Cryptozoology and a former volunteer worker in the Vertebrate Paleontology Dept. of the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences (1990-1992). He co-authored a scientific abstract about the Lake Champlain hydrophone sounds for the Acoustical Society of America in 2010. He currently lives in Bradenton, Florida.

Known as the Prince of Paleofiction, Max Hawthorne is the author of the award-winning KRONOS RISING novel series and an amateur paleontologist to boot. His research credits include solving the mystery of how plesiosaurs utilized all four of their flippers to swim, and how changes in the morphology of the Megalodon shark’s teeth, from birth to adulthood, indicated a conversion from hunting to scavenging.
