Meet Randall Sullivan:

Journalist Randall Sullivan serves up a detailed account of the centuries-old history of the island and its treasure hunters who have driven themselves to financial ruin, psychotic breakdowns, and even death. The latest explorers, of course, are the Lagina brothers, Marty and Rick, along with engineer Craig Tester who star on the History Channel’s Curse of Oak Island reality TV series. Marty will take the stage with Randall!

Sullivan is a former contributing editor to Rolling Stone, which published his original report on Oak Island in 2004. Author of  five books, including The Price of Experience, Labyrinth, The Miracle Detective and Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson, he is also a producer and writer, known for City of Lies, A Friend to Die For, and Reckless Indifference. His writing has been published in EsquireOutsideMen’s JournalWashington Post, and the Guardian, among many other places. 

Marty Lagina grew up in Kingsford in the Upper Peninsula and earned a degree in mechanical engineering from Michigan Tech University. He worked for decades as a petroleum engineer, establishing an oil and gas exploration company in 1982 before taking time out to earn a law degree at the University of Michigan. He sold the company in 1995 and founded Heritage Sustainable in 2004, a renewable energy company that produces enough power for 57,000 Michigan homes. He also owns Mari Vineyards, first planted in 1999. He came into the national spotlight after he and his brother, Rick, created The Curse of Oak Island, a TV show in which the Laginas’ technical ingenuity takes center stage. He lives with his family in Traverse City.
