Here it is, our interview with Les Stroud in its entirety.

Today we had Les Stroud from Discovery Channel’s Surviorman on the air to talk about his new book “The Will to Live.” He gave us some incredible insight on his background as a survival expert as well as how he got into the business of making Survivorman.  We asked him to share some of his wildest stories which range from the extremely sensational, such as being chased by a jaguar in the Amazon, to the physically taxing, such as fighting off heat stroke in the desert.  After some quick lessons on why not to drink your own pee, or anyone else’s for that matter, he got into the topic of other “Survival” hosts.  We couldn’t agree more that these people don’t have the chops or the balls to really go for true survival without the constant aid of a camera crew.  We even got him to tell us that Bear Grylls better buy him a beer if they ever meet in a bar!

Yea, he really is that badass.

Here’s Les Stroud talking about his potential Bigfoot encounter.

Finally, Jeremy brought up his favorite subject of Sasquatch which we thought was a ridiculous question.  Surprisingly, Les brought up an extremely intriguing story that gave us the chills about a possible Sasquatch experience. That’s right, you heard it here first, Les Stroud believes in Bigfoot!  If you’ve never listened to the program before, you won’t regret checking out the audio above to hear the entirety of our interview with this fascinating, and extreme, man.

  1. Ah…shoot…I love Les but i’m not sure that depiction of “ape sounds” has the ring of truth. Hope i’m wrong.

  2. BEN, GET A LIFE …WHY WOULD LES STROUD DO AN INTERVIEW AND FABRICATE HIS STORY…THEY ARE OUT THERE …I GUESS YOU’LL HAVE TO HAVE A FIRST HAND ENCOUNTER WITH ONE BEFORE YOU BECOME A BELIEVER…

  3. I read Les’s blog a few years ago and he mentions this episode shortly after it happened.
    I believed him then and I believe him now. The blog can be found on Discovery channel’s webpage under Survivorman

  4. I love to watch Les, He’s the real deal..I rather not watch Bear Grylls, he’s very annoying!!
    Les is very believable and make good sense. (most of the time) I don’t think I’d strip down to get into frigid water for a couple of roots or bulbs in a bog. He’s got great outdoor survival skills. He would make a great partner in the woods/forest looking for Sas! Not to mention an honest good friend. Mark Stenberg

  5. [...] of the top Bigfoot research Facebook groups took our interview with Les Stroud talking about Bigfoot and posted it on their page. Well, it got 10′s and 10′s of [...]

  6. I enjoyed this interview and was very glad to have an opportunity to hear it. Les is a person that I have always thought of as being honest, open, and real. I have always trusted what he says, partly because I feel he can be trusted, and partly because I have consistently had positive experiences when following his lead. I was most interested in the Bigfoot discussion because it is the first time I have ever heard him discuss that topic. I have always believed in Bigfoot and now, without having had an encounter myself, I am certain Bigfoot exists because of the experiences Les has had.

  7. UNTIL YOU HEAR ONE OF THESE THING’S AND THE HAIR ON THE BACK OF YOUR NECK STANDS UP, YOU WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND.

  9. [...] I’d ask him if he had ever had any experiences with Bigfoot. It seems like one of the DJs at KZOZ 93.3 beat me to the punch. And the answer Les gives is extremely interesting. Les Stroud of [...]
