If there is something you would like to know more about, odds are it will be covered at this year’s Know-It-All Festival! Listen to hear about Birdwatching and the Didgeridoo, two topics covered in 2017.
Below is a link to the Library’s homepage. Go there to learn more before the First Saturday in October.
This week we look at three instances of what the internet says is weird about Berea. Not ‘Weird’ like Austin, Texas; but weird like Bigfoot and perplexing archaeological evidence!
Definitely click above to listen to this week’s episode.
Below are the links and pictures mentioned:
Here are the pictures Michael shared of the crouching Bigfoot he saw at the Pinnacles. This is an extreme close-up of a section of the picture further below. You may have difficulty making it out at first, but it does look like a human-like shape in shadows with a lighted outline… Click on the image and zoom in…
Here is the larger picture that shows the context of the sighting…
Here is the original Patterson/Gimlin film of Bigfoot
Here is a link that discusses the Rockcastle County Footprints as a possible unexplained discovery:
Sustainable Berea and community partners are addressing the Opioid Crisis. Listen to hear about how working with the soil and each other are offering support for those wanting to break their addictions.
We spent a lovely evening with our Tourism Commission and other concerned citizens. The discussion about Tourism, Murals, and Outdoor Concerts was so engaging that we thought we would share it with you!
While it is a long episode, every second is worth it.
Here are some links that go along with what was discussed during the meeting:
Musician Jeff Parker shares stories on this week’s Berea Podcast. From playing guitar when he was six to playing Carnegie Hall, Jeff talks about the impact that music has had on his life. To hear more stories and hear him play, come to a benefit concert for the Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen on July 14th, 2018 at Brock Auditorium in the Coates Building at EKU in Richmond, Kentucky.
What is it like to grow up in a small town like Berea Kentucky? Listen in and learn about what members of the Berea Band, Turning Age, have been able to do while they grew up in our small town. Hear about their upcoming concert on June 15 and a sample of their music.
Here are the members of Turning Age gathered around the dinner table as I interview them before their last Saturday practice before their June 15 concert.

The digital archives at the Berea College Hutchins Library holds a treasure trove of Berea’s history. Listen to this special interview with Mayor Clinton C. Hensley recorded by Joyce Hannan. I would rather listen to 10,000 of these interviews than the political back and forth that is taking place today.
