a bite-sized podcast about Newfoundland

Episode 14 – The Giant Squid of Newfoundland

Newfoundland holds a few Guinness World Records: the first trans-Atlantic flight, the first European settlers in North America, the earliest record of animal tracks (from 565 million years ago) and the world’s largest squid. This episode is about those devil fish, those Kraken, those giant squid. Squids?
