EPISODE #997 A STRANGE TALE FROM APPALACHIA COMES WITH A WARNING ABOUT A.I.
Richard welcomes writer Forrest Maready who shares a strange story and never-before-seen photographs of a forsaken place and its forgotten people of Appalachia. In 1872, a hardy group of Nordic Americans, disenfranchised with the direction of the American nation, began to carve out a slice of the beautiful land they had come to love.
GUEST: Forrest Maready graduated from Wake Forest University with a degree in Religion and Music, and plied his trade in the film industry for several years, working on several Muppet movies, four seasons of Dawson’s Creek, and many other films and television shows as an audio engineer, editor, composer, and animator. He transitioned into technology as a designer and developer for visual effects software and CTO at NextGlass (now called Untappd).
Creator of the popular “My Incredible Opinion” and “VaxBaby” video series, he has spent the last few years researching and writing about some of the most enigmatic riddles of science and medicine, notably autism and polio. Forrest has spoken at events and conferences around the country, but prefers to stay close to his writing home in the cab of a 1992 F-150, where many of his manuscripts were composed.
