Sticking with the theme of radio interviews, Poole was also profiled and interviewed by the CBS affiliate in St. Louis. Scott un-embarrassingly admits to his lifelong nerd affiliation with monsters.
This brings to point an interesting conversation topic. Can you blame parents for your nerdyness? What about your horror nerdyness?
Scott also talks about how early American fears of monsters actually caused fears over the economic stability in New England. What are we talking about, you ask? Listen to this interview, then search for what New Englanders named their sea serpent in Gloucester harbor. If you can’t find it, Scott writes about the encounter in the early chapters of Monsters in America.
