“The Skeptical Scientist” Ranae Holland TEDxSeatlle: What Bigfoot Means to Her

audio-1851517_960_720

Biologist and investigator for the television program “Finding Bigfoot” Ranae Holland spoke in Seattle about her views on Bigfoot, science and curiosity.  Holland states that while she does not believe in Bigfoot as a biological organism, she is fascinated with her interactions with the people who do.  She stated she is driven to keep investigating with the rest of the “Finding Bigfoot” crew because it helps spur and drive curiosity about science and the natural world.  

“As a cohost of the Animal Planet television show Finding Bigfoot, she draws on her scientific skills to sift through evidence and testimony of the elusive legend. In this funny and personal talk, she shares why both a strong sense of curiosity and patient listening has helped her bridge the divide between those who believe and those who don’t and argues that nurturing curiosity might be the best way to engage people in the joys of science and exploration. Even if that curiosity is about something as far fetched and elusive as Bigfoot.”
