Ep. 1: The Myth of the Southern Mountain Lion
There are two types of people in the South -- those who have seen mountain lions and those who haven’t. Supposedly extirpated from the South, the native species has lived on through backwoods lore and many believe they never left. Did they? Clay Newcomb explores the touchy topic by interviewing biologists, investigating two eye-witness sightings, and talking with a psychologist about people seeing things that aren’t real. This is a lesson in biology and human nature, and a great story that gets to the truth about mountain lions in the South.
