Ferrill Gibbs is a podcast producer, writer, and musician who has podcasted for The Houston Chronicle, City Cast Houston, and most recently, for KBTX in College Station, Texas.
His work on the Gonazlo Lopez escape for KBTX helped win an Edward R. Murrow award for KBTX's digital team.
Ferrill has produced hundreds of episodes on a myriad of topics, including: politics, music, news, sports, weather, science, true crime, biology, and even A.I.
In 2020, his friend Abe Partridge discovered undocumented music in serpent handling churches across Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama and West Virginia. The lively, frenetic music is unique with lyrics describing the Five Signs of Mark 16: the consumption of poisonous substances and the free-handling of venomous snakes.
Ferrill co-produced, edited, and sound designed the acclaimed podcast Alabama Astronaut, which details their adventure, and resulted in a Nashville-produced album of songs from the faith.
This podcast ranked on Lifehacker's Best of the Year list as one of 2022's 13 best new podcasts.
For fun, Ferrill hangs out with his wife “Fish,” and plays his two acoustic guitars. He's also a published writer. (Ferrill writes all the time.) His 2017 novel, The Secret Island of Edgar Dewitt, is about a kid from Alabama who finds a hole through the earth. It's available on Amazon and Kindle.
