Second Guest Speaker - Steven James
Steven James has studied unexplained cryptid reports since 1997. His interest in the field originates from his own involvement in an encounter outside Lewiston, California in 1996. In the past, he actively researched the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, and was part of the team that first identified and studied the Skookum Meadow region. More recently, Mr. James has relocated to Texas, where he has been examining claims and evidence since 2015, with a critical eye towards documentation and scientific based reasoning and methodology. In 2016 he started the Lonestar Apes Project, which ran until 2019. He has been featured in podcast interviews on such shows as Sasquatch Chronicles, Bigfoot Outlaw Radio, and others. He presented at Footstock 2019 on audio analysis and collection methodology. In 2019, he founded The Cryptid Connection, a podcast that focuses on researchers and their methods and accomplishments, as well as administrating The Cryptid Connection website, where members can experience a private social media experience without the limitations of major social media sites. Mr. James is currently examining the role that watersheds may play in association with reported activity in the Texas and Oklahoma region. He spends several days in the field on a monthly basis, year round. Mr. James is a former pilot and now is a successful Technology Consultant for Texas government and law enforcement since 2004. He is married to his wife and Co-Host, Jennifer James.
