Podcast 33 – The North Pond Hermit

The North Pond Hermit

In Episode 33 Jeff Belanger and Ray Auger head to the woods of central Maine in search of the North Pond Hermit. In 1986 Christopher Knight walked into the forest and lived out there for 27 years stealing supplies from local cabins and camps. How did he survive the Maine winters outside? How did he live with no human contact for almost three decades? How did he get caught? The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit author Michael Finkel joins us to discuss the legend of the North Pond Hermit.
