Apr 8, 2019 01:00:25

Description:

On episode 103 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan is joined once again by Joey Chait, an ex-member of the church of Scientology. In part 2 of this series, they discuss what happened after Joey was kicked out of the infamous "Sea Org" for being gay. Then Joey runs us through the incredible story of how and why he was sent to federal prison, testified under oath about what he endured in his lifetime with the church of Scientology, and what happened when he finally left completely.

Then, Joey describes his interactions with the mysterious, new leader of Scientology, David Miscaviage, and his complete hijacking of the entire religion. Joey then answers listener questions to help clear up misconceptions and confirmations about the church, its followers, and what comes next for him as an ex-member speaking out against Scientology.

Guest Bio: Joey Chait is a former member of the Church of Scientology and was raised in the cult since birth. He was forced into Scientology training courses at a very young age, and worked in the family business, with his Scientology family for most of his life. In 2016, Joey decided to publicly speak out against Scientology, including his story of being gay and growing up in a homophobic cult. Joey continues to speak publicly about the abusive practices of Scientology and is currently writing an autobiography about his life in the cult. Joey is happily engaged to his long-time partner in Los Angeles and continues to work with ex-Scientologists, or anyone wishing to leave a cult, especially those that are part of the LGBTQ + community.

Apr 1, 2019 01:17:00

Description:

On episode 102 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan is joined by Joey Chait, an ex-member of the church of Scientology. Born into this highly controversial religion, Chait navigated his way up the ranks of the Church's many "spiritual" levels to become a prominent member. But it all came crashing down with a string of events so disturbing that it led to him leaving Scientology behind, along with losing his entire family in the process.

In part 1 of this series, we learn the incredible creation myth of the religion itself, the horrible things Chait endured, and what prompted him to finally break free at a very unfortunate cost.

Guest Bio: Joey Chait is a former member of the Church of Scientology and was raised in the cult since birth. He was forced into Scientology training courses at a very young age, and worked in the family business, with his Scientology family for most of his life.

Joey continues to speak publicly about the abusive practices of Scientology and is currently writing an autobiography about his life in the cult. Joey is happily engaged to his long-time partner in Los Angeles and continues to work with ex-Scientologists, or anyone wishing to leave a cult, especially those that are part of the LGBTQ + community.

Lance Mungia: THIRD EYE SPIES

Mar 25, 2019 01:17:19

Description:

On episode 101 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan welcomes Lance Mungia to the show. Mungia is the director of the recently released documentary, Third Eye Spies 

For more than 20 years the CIA used psychic abilities in a top-secret program. You paid for it; you deserve to know about it. A psychic spy program developed during the Cold War escalated after a Stanford Research Institute experiment publicized classified intel. As a result, the highly successful work of physicist Russell Targ was co-opted by the CIA and hidden for decades due to the demands of ‘national security.’ But when America’s greatest psychic spy dies mysteriously, Targ fights to get their work declassified; even if it means going directly to his former enemies in the Soviet Union to prove the reality of ESP to the world at large.

Mungia runs us through some of the most compelling moments from the documentary, and then he shares, for the very first time, his personal UFO story.

Guest Bio: Lance Mungia is an American screenwriter and film director of the film Six-String Samurai and co-writer/director of The Crow: Wicked Prayer for Dimension Films. Mungia also wrote and directed the short film Garden for Rio, produced at Loyola Marymount University, where he attended as a film student. To learn more, visit: www.wakinguniversefilms.com - Third Eye Spies is available on all streaming platforms, including Itunes, Amazon, and Vimeo.

Mar 11, 2019 01:51:36

Description:

On episode 99 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, MJ Banias returns to talk about his new book, The UFO People: A Curious Culture. Part narrative journey and part cultural study, it's a challenge to the UFO subculture and the broader public to recognize that UFOs, and the people who study them, challenge societal norms, institutions, and ideology. The UFO phenomenon, real or not, abandons us to a ghostly realm where nothing should be taken for granted. Take a journey into a curious culture and meet individuals who have been reshaped and changed by the impossible. Meet the UFO people.

Guest Bio: MJ Banias is an educator, writer and blogger. He was a former field investigator with the Mutual UFO Network, has been featured on multiple podcasts and radio shows, and contributes to Mysterious Universe and RoguePlanet. His work has been included in Fortean TimesFATE Magazine, and in a book entitled UFOs: Reframing the Debate. He is the author of The UFO People: A Curious Culture. He lives in Canada with his wife, two children, and a massive cat. To learn more, visit: www.TerraObscura.net

If Anything Happens to Me, Investigate

Mar 4, 2019 32:41

Description:

On episode 98 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan looks into the dark and disturbing topic of deaths within the UFO research community. Throughout the years, several individuals investigating UFOs and various other fringe topics were found dead in the most mysterious and tragic of ways. Were these simply suicides or unfortunate fatalities? Or was there a more nefarious and conspiratorial angle to their deaths?

The stories of Max Spiers, Morris K. Jessup, Dorothy Kilgallen, Frank Edwards, Ron Rummel, and Phil Schneider are explored in great depth. Are these stories just fuel for conspiracy theory, or could they possibly beg the question; if you dig deep enough into UFOs, do you risk being monitored, targeted, and permanently silenced for knowing, and possibly divulging too much?

Diana Walsh Pasulka: AMERICAN COSMIC

Jan 28, 2019 01:10:27

Description:

On episode 93 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan welcomes author and professor of religious studies, Diana Walsh Pasulka to the show to talk about her new book, American Cosmic: UFOs, Religion, Technology

More than half of American adults and more than seventy-five percent of young Americans believe in intelligent extraterrestrial life. This level of belief rivals that of belief in God. American Cosmic examines the mechanisms at work behind the thriving belief system in extraterrestrial life, a system that is changing and even supplanting traditional religions.

Over the course of a six-year ethnographic study, Pasulka interviewed successful and influential scientists, professionals, and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who believe in extraterrestrial intelligence, thereby disproving the common misconception that only fringe members of society believe in UFOs. American Cosmic explores the intriguing question of how people interpret unexplainable experiences and argues that the media is replacing religion as a cultural authority that offers believers answers about non-human intelligent life and the enigmatic phenomena often connected to all this... UFOs.

Listeners can get a 30% discount on the book right now by CLICKING HERE and using promo code: AAFLYG6

Guest Bio: Diana Walsh Pasulka is a Professor of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington and Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religion. Her research focuses on religion and technology, including supernatural belief and its connections to digital technologies and environments. Her current projects include two edited volumes, Believing in Bits: New Media and the Supernatural, co-edited with Simone Natalie and forthcoming with Oxford University Press, and Post Humanism: The Future of Homo Sapiens, co-edited with Michael Bess and forthcoming with Palgrave MacMillan Reference.

In 2009, he won the first season of Syfy's Ghost Hunters Academy and went on to appear on Ghost Hunters International.

Project Blue Book is based on the true, top-secret investigations into Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and related phenomena conducted by the United States Air Force from 1952 to 1969. The investigations were headed by the noted astronomer, J. Allen Hynek.

What prompted creator, David O'Leary to pen a script based on the life and career of J. Allen Hynek? What cases did he find most compelling to bring to the mainstream? And just exactly what is up with that alien in the tube that we keep seeing in many of the publicity photos?

Next, Ryan speaks with co-writer and showrunner, Sean Jablonski. He runs us through the inception of the show, to casting, researching, and eventually producing and running the entire endeavor. How close to real-life is the show? And what can expect in the first season? All this and more in this week's jam-packed episode on Project Blue Book.

John Greenewald: The Black Vault, AATIP, and Behavioral Modification

Dec 10, 2018 01:43:06

Description:

On episode 86 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan is joined by John Greenewald, the creator and moderator of The Black Vault.

The Black Vault is the largest privately run online repository of declassified government documents anywhere in the world. With more than 2 Million pages of documents to read, on nearly every government secret imaginable, The Black Vault is known worldwide for getting down to the truth... and nothing but. Every document in its archive was obtained through the Freedom of Information Act Begun in 1996, at the age of 15, John Greenewald, Jr., began hammering the U.S. Government with FOIA requests to obtain information. The Black Vault is the result of that near two-decade effort. And today, we talk about how it all began, the most important documents he came across pertaining to UFOs, and then we do a deep dive into AATIP, the supposed Secret Pentagon UFO Program, and the critical observations John has come across in relation to the head of the program, Luis Elizondo. We wrap things up talking about a stunning amount of never-before-seen documents pertaining to the CIA's involvement in a Behavioral Modification program that involved mind control and other MK ULTRA-like experiments.

Guest Bio: In 1996, John Greenewald, Jr. began researching the secret inner workings of the U.S. Government at the young age of fifteen. He targeted such groups as the CIA, FBI, Pentagon, Air Force, Army, Navy, NSA, DIA, and countless others. Greenewald utilized the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to gain access to thousands of records. He accumulated an astonishing number of documents on topics related to UFOs, the JFK Assassination, chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons, and top secret aircraft. Over two million pages later, and the Black Vault website was created.Greenewald  has been featured on television networks such as The History Channel, Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel, A&E, FOX, NBC, along with international networks such as the BBC (UK) and NTV (Russia) and many others. At the age of twenty-one, Greenewald published his first book Beyond UFO Secrecy in 2002. His book has recently been put into a second expanded edition, and was re-published by Galde Press in January, 2008. Website: TheBlackVault.com

Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers with Jeremy Corbell

Nov 26, 2018 50:08

Description:

On episode 84 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan welcomes back Jeremy Corbell to the show to talk about his latest film, Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers.

Bob Lazar remains the singular most famous and controversial name in the world of UFOs. The reason you know about Area 51 is because Lazar came forward and told you about it. His disclosures have turned his life upside-down and he has tried to stay out of the spotlight. For this reason, he has never let any filmmaker into the private world of his daily life - that is - until now. Corbell’s film explores Lazar’s claims through the decades - providing rare and never before revealed footage - guaranteed to alter the landscape of the debate. And today, we cover some of the biggest controversies surrounding the Lazar mythos and Corbell's approach to covering this story, over thirty years in the making.

The film will premiere in Los Angeles on December 3rd at the Ace Theater. CLICK HERE for tickets.

The film will release worldwide on all streaming platforms. To pre-order with hours of bonus footage, CLICK HERE

Guest Bio: Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell is an Investigative filmmaker. He has been deep in the trenches documenting extra-ordinary individuals and their belief systems. This research has taken him into the worlds of nanotechnology, advanced aerospace exploration, and exotic propulsion systems. Corbell has documented the surgical removal of alleged off-world alien implants, and with access to NASA and a contingency of dedicated scientists, he has filmed the analysis of anomalous materials alleged to be physical evidence of extraterrestrial nanotechnology from UFO landing sites. Corbell has obtained death-bed confessions from former CIA and government intelligence officials, who claim to expose the truth about the UFO reality and the worldwide coverup of the ultimate truth. He has deeply investigated the Bob Lazar UFO case, and all the individuals associated with his claims, and has broken elements of the story that have sparked vigorous public debate. Corbell’s film work reveals how ideas, held by credible individuals, can alter the way we experience the world and force us to reconsider the fabric of our own beliefs.

Description:

On episode 83 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we drop you smack dab in the center of AlienCon Baltimore! When Ryan wasn't speaking, moderating panels, and facilitating UFO witness sessions, he was invading the vendor hall and green room to bring a collection of interviews from some of the most notable speakers at this three-day event.

Tell My Story: June Crain, the Air Force & UFOs

Nov 5, 2018 01:58:03

Description:

On episode 81 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we return to UFOs in full force with an explosive interview with military veteran, retired police detective, and current UFO investigator, James Clarkson. After lecturing about government secrecy pertaining to UFOs, an elderly woman approached him and told him that she agreed that the government wasn't sharing with the public all they knew about UFOs. Upon asking her how she knew, Clarkson was intrigued by her answer; "Because I worked there..."

This is the June Crain story, placed into the context of the history of the UFO phenomenon since WWII. This is a strong indictment of the last official word from the Air Force on Roswell. Tell My Story explains why Roswell and UFOs, in general, are anything but "case closed." Clarkson runs us through some of the more compelling aspects of both June Crain's life and her handling of possible materials from the Roswell UFO incident.

We also get the inside scoop on why Clarkson quit MUFON and recently rejoined, and his personal thoughts on To the Stars Academy and the future of UFO research.

Guest Bio: James Clarkson is a career investigator with over 30 years’ experience in criminal investigation and in the mysterious world of UFOs. He brings these skills and a no-nonsense approach to bear on the mystery of UFOs. He has lectured extensively throughout Washington State, at symposiums across the country and in Paris. He also served as State Director for MUFON and continues to investigate UFOs up until today. He is the interviewer and author of TELL MY STORY – June Crain, the Air Force & UFOs. All of his current investigations and other work can be found at www.JamesClarksonUFO.com

The Power of Urban Legends with Josh Zeman

Oct 29, 2018 01:10:12

Description:

On episode 80 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan shares one last listener ghost story from Angela to ring in the Halloween season and the end of the Halloween series of the show. He then speaks with investigative filmmaker, Josh Zeman.

Zeman first discusses his film, "Cropsey", a boogeyman-like figure from New York City urban legend, before segueing into the story of one Andre Rand, a convicted child kidnapper from Staten Island. Zeman journies into the underbelly as more information and clues unravel. The reality he uncovers is more terrifying than any urban legend. 

Zeman then transitions into a television special he created titled, "Killer Legends", in which he investigates four other deeply disturbing urban legends throughout the country and questions which came first, the urban legend or the real events? What power does storytelling have over us when it comes to reality and fantasy? Do we create the monsters in these legends? Or do they create us? It's a fascinating discussion and the perfect way to count the final days until Halloween.

Guest Bio: Josh Zeman has been at the forefront of the true crime genre for the past decade. His critically acclaimed horror documentary CROPSEY, a critic’s pick with The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and Roger Ebert, was called “one of the year’s best documentaries” and “one of the scariest films of the year” in 2011. Off the success of CROPSEY, Zeman created KILLER LEGENDS for NBC Universal, an anthology series that examines true crimes that have inspired our scariest urban legends. Premiering as both the #1 downloaded documentary and horror film on iTunes in July of 2014, KILLER LEGENDS has since become one of the most watched true crime documentaries on both Netflix and Hulu.

From Kuji to Solo: Hacking the UFO Mystery

Oct 1, 2018 36:53

Description:

On episode 76 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan weaves the digital web of events that centered around two computer hackers, a decade apart from one another, who were accused of the largest NASA, U.S. military, and U.S. intelligence agency hacks of all time. Having caused millions of dollars in breaches and security damage, both men faced possible extradition to the United States and imprisonment for their cyber crimes. But what exactly was it that they were searching for that seemingly could have caused a world war or even possible nuclear annihilation?

Top secret classified information on UFOs.

Calling All Earthlings

Sep 17, 2018 56:45

Description:

On episode 74 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan speaks with documentary filmmaker, Jonathan Berman, about his latest film, Calling All Earthlings, based on the life and work of George Van Tassel.

In 1947, George Van Tassel, a Howard Hughes employee and confidante, suddenly quits working for his mentor and ditches the straight life, moving deep into the Mojave Desert where he and his family sleep under a rock. He leaves behind a tattered Los Angeles in the grips of postwar paranoia, opting for the quietude of the Joshua Tree area. It is during an August 1953 full moon that Van Tassel has an encounter with extraterrestrials, who give him the information to build a rejuvenation machine he dubs “The Integratron.” 

Is Van Tassel crazy or could the Integratron really work? FBI agents try to halt the army of eccentrics who gather in the desert to create a collective, possibly threatening reality on the edge of the American Dream. A gentle inquiry into alternative culture, the story is told by the current residents of the Joshua Tree area, who must defend against rampant militarism and commercialization, all while still waiting for their spaceship.

We get in the inside scoop on the making of the film, Berman's experiences while deeply embedding himself into the Joshua Tree communities that still believe in Van Tassel's mission, and we even touch on UFO disclosure and how it was viewed back in the days of the contactees and how it is viewed now post-Secret Pentagon UFO program.

Guest Bio: Jonathan Berman is a Project Director, Producer, and Associate Professor in Arts and Technology. His films explore subculture and identity, challenging and redefining how alternative people, groups and ideas are represented. Berman began by working on Pee Wee's Playhouse, The Toxic Avenger 2, and on other TV, genre and art projects, soon shifting to documentary since “real life is more fantastic than most fiction.” He made The Shvitz, a National Endowment for the Arts supported project that found a wealth of characters and attitudes in the diverse patrons of a traditional New York bathhouse. My Friend Paul, produced with the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, focused upon the turbulence of bipolar illness and was one of the first modern documentaries about the friends and family of the mentally ill. His most recent film, Commune, reexamined the legacy of Sixties counterculture wins and excesses through communal living. Calling All Earthlings is his most recent film.

Hunt for the Skinwalker

Sep 10, 2018 01:01:54

Description:

On episode 73 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Jeremy Corbell returns to the show to discuss his latest film, Hunt for the Skinwalker.

Based on the best-selling book by George Knapp & Dr. Colm Kelleher, Hunt for the Skinwalker is an intimate and unnerving portrait of the events surrounding the most extensive scientific study of a paranormal hotspot in human history.

This Utah ranch includes sightings of orbs, UFOs, animal mutilations, unknown creatures, poltergeist-type activity, and many other inexplicable incidents. An exhaustive, multidisciplinary scientific study began in 1996, spearheaded by an enigmatic Las Vegas billionaire. A team of PhD-level investigators was deployed to collect evidence and spent more than a decade on the ground, interviewing witnesses, searching for explanations, and directly confronting an unknown intelligence. Recent headlines have revealed that a second, government-funded but confidential study was initiated by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). This second investigation was designed to determine if the phenomena at the ranch might have national security implications or could point to technological breakthroughs.

The shroud of mystery hanging above Skinwalker Ranch and the Uintah Basin has fascinated director Jeremy Corbell for years. He finally journeyed to the property to interview eyewitnesses including the new owner of the ranch and uncover rare, previously unreleased recordings. We discuss all of this and some very interesting connections between the Secret Pentagon UFO Program (AATIP) and Skinwalker Ranch.

Guest Bio: Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell is an investigative filmmaker based in Los Angeles California. Corbell documents the ExtraOrdinary claims of credible individuals. This research has taken him into the worlds of nanotechnology, aerospace exploration, exotic propulsion systems and an in-depth examination/documentation of ufology and phenomenology. Corbell’s film work reveals how ideas, held by credible individuals, can alter the way we experience reality and force us to reconsider the fabric of our own beliefs.

Finding Mrs. Moreland

Sep 3, 2018 40:34

Description:

On episode 72 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan presents an exclusive audio documentary based on a relatively unknown UFO event that occurred in New Zealand in 1959. 

Eileen Moreland went out to milk the cows one morning in the South Island town of Blenheim. She returned home about eighty minutes later with an extraordinary story. "You may think I am mad,” she told police, “but I saw a flying saucer." After reporting the incident to the police, the local Air Force Base got involved and began to privately investigate the report. What they uncovered, and the events that followed, would both haunt the Air Force investigators and the Moreland family for many years to come.

This is the incredible story; "Finding Mrs. Moreland: How One Woman's UFO Claim Exposed Paranoia and Fear in 1950s New Zealand." Set to the backdrop of the Cold War, this little known UFO event was covered in great detail by a New Zealand journalist named Charlie Gates. In association with Gates and the news site, Stuff Limited, this audio documentary consists of Gates' massive article in its entirety. To read an interactive version of the article, CLICK HERE.

Description:

On episode 71 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan is joined by UFO journalist, Jason McClellan and UFO blogger and academic, MJ Banias. The three sit down, whiskey in hand, to discuss the recent happenings over at To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science. With the announcement of a new research project knows as The Acquisition and Data Analysis of Materials (A.D.A.M), things are getting very interesting in the UFO field and beyond.

With this project, Tom DeLonge, Luis Elizondo, and the rest of the science team will recover materials that are said to have possibly been from downed UFO craft. With the assistance of TTSA member, Hal Putoff, and a group of scientists, these materials will undergo rigorous analysis to determine its composition and possible origins. But will we be privy to what they find? And if they do determine these materials to be from off-planet, what comes next? 

Ryan, Jason, and MJ weave their whiskey-fueled way through the project including its pros, cons, and what may come next for the future of To the Stars Academy and even the future of UFO research on a grander scale.

Description:

On episode 69 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we take a much more serious approach this week with the fourth installment of witness accounts.

How did these dramatic encounters affect those who witnessed them? What did they believe they saw? We hear the startling stories of the witnesses directly from their own voices, hearts, and minds as they continue to search for their own answers somewhere in the skies.

UFO Happy Hour!

Aug 6, 2018 01:47:11

Description:

On episode 68 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan is joined by Rob Kristoffersen of the Our Strange Skies Podcast. They pull up a stool at the cosmic watering hole, crack open a couple beers, and let it rip. From skeletons and mummies being touted as aliens... to the dated and inaccurate Air Force-appointed acronym of "U.F.O"... to their thoughts on the new History Channel television series, Project Blue Book, which both praises and completely botches our "UFO Dad"; J. Allen Hynek. 

Round two of drinks finds the guys answering listener questions with brutal honesty. What do they really think of Billy Meir? What cases do they wish they could personally investigate and what conclusions would they come up with? Did aliens really ask a chicken farmer for jugs of water, and in return, cooked him some pancakes? And what do they think is the biggest misconception when it comes to the UFO topic and study of it?

Sit back, have a drink, and join us for an uncensored and unapologetic booze-fueled romp as we explore the mysteries somewhere in our strange skies! 

Guest Bio: Rob Kristoffersen is the host of the Our Strange Skies podcast, and has been an amateur UFO researcher/paranormal investigator for nearly 10 years. He has been a lifelong resident of the Adirondacks and has had an interest in the paranormal from a very early age.

Jul 30, 2018 49:35

Description:

On episode 67 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan welcomes Mike Damante back to the show to discuss his newly released follow-up book, Punk Rock and UFOs: True Believers.

Punk Rock and UFOs: True Believers is a call to arms to the common populace and UFO community to come together to better understand the unexplained. It tackles topics like the process of belief, religion, mythology, popular culture, disclosure, media, advances, science, the unexplained, the UFO phenomena becoming mainstream all in a thought-provoking package aimed at the common reader, as well as the UFO community.

In a time where UFOs are slowly creeping more and more into the mainstream consciousness, it is important that we as a society WANT to know the truth, and are actively seeking it. The book is a wake-up call to the every-day person and looks to bridge the gap to the UFO research community. The book was written to simultaneously synergize both groups to a higher level of thinking. This, and so much more, is discussed this week. We also get Mike's thoughts on the developments happening with To the Stars Academy and we even dive into his own personal beliefs on if we are truly being visited by some sort of non-human intelligence(s).

Guest Bio: Mike Damante worked for the Houston Chronicle as a copy editor, writer, reporter and web producer. He currently produces their "MIKED" music blog and has interviewed bands and musicians like Bad Religion, Blink-182, Taking Back Sunday, Tom DeLonge, Tegan and Sara, Aerosmith, B.o.B and countless others. He’s appeared on Fox 26 Houston, Spectrum News Austin, “Somewhere In The Skies” podcast, Rogue Planet TV, “UFO Classified” with Erica Lukes, Radio Wasteland, Newsweek, the Houston Chronicle and other media outlet, and has been considered one of the “best fresh faces in the field."

Kiss the Sky: The Abduction of Linda Napolitano

Jul 23, 2018 53:40

Description:

On episode 66 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan shares the incredible story of the Brooklyn Bridge UFO abduction. In New York City, on November 30th, 1989, Linda Napolitano was seen emerging from an apartment building window twelve stories above the ground accompanied by three small alien figures. Suspended within a blue beam of light, Linda and her captors were lifted into a large reddish-orange glowing UFO, which then moved off in the direction of the Brooklyn Bridge. Noted abduction researcher, Budd Hopkin, conducted an exhaustive investigation of the case. Several witnesses, including a world political leader, saw - and later independently corroborated - this event. It is the evidence of numerous and influential eyewitnesses to this abduction that shatters all previous patterns of UFO encounters.

The highly dramatic and controversial accounts of Linda and the witnesses have left both the believers and skeptics debating the Brooklyn Bridge abduction up until today. To further the debate, Ryan invites Peter Robbins to the show. Robbins is a UFO researcher, author, and former assistant to Budd Hopkins. Robbins runs us through his personal experiences with both Hopkins and Linda, and sheds light on this dark and disturbing case like never before.

Guest Bio: Peter Robbins is an investigative writer, author, and lecturer, best known for his books, columns, articles, radio commentaries, interviews and conference talks. He has appeared as a guest on and been a consultant to numerous television programs and documentaries. Peter was born in Queens, New York and studied art, design, and theater at the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut. He received his BFA (painting, film history) from New York City’s School of Visual Arts (SVA) where he also taught painting for a dozen years. In the mid-1980s, he became seriously involved in UFO research when his knowledge of classified data indicated to him the US government was not telling the public the truth about UFOs.

Engaging the Strange

Jul 9, 2018 01:08:39

Description:

On episode 64 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan and Shannon LeGro of INTO THE FRAY, speak with the "Real Life Mulder and Scully", Dana and Greg Newkirk. Originally broadcast on INTO THE FRAY, this interview reintroduces listeners to the incredible work by the dynamic paranormal couple and their many adventures investigating the unknown.

What happens when you own the world's only traveling paranormal and occult museum? And even stranger, what happens when the items are all in your home and constantly try to communicate with you? From a pitch-black mirror where witnesses claim to have seen pure evil, to a small statue with nails in its eyes and noose around its neck that moves on its own and causes poltergeist-like activity in their home on a consistent basis. These are just a few of the objects that Greg and Dana own. And this is only a sliver of the experiences they've had. So join Shannon and Ryan on their journey with the professional weirdos as they engage the strange like never before!

Guest Bios:

Greg Newkirk is a paranormal investigator, travel writer, and real-life monster hunter. In other words, he’s a professional weirdo. As if Greg’s eerie adventures and odd experiments weren’t enough to qualify him as one today’s foremost authorities on the subject of the unexplained, he’s also the director of the world’s only Traveling Museum of the Paranormal and the Occult, a roving display filled with terrifying relics from real hauntings, occult crimes, and startling evidence collected during his nearly twenty years of anomalous research. In addition to researching, investigating, and writing about the anomalous, Greg has appeared on numerous hit television series including Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot, TLC’s Paranormal Lockdown, and Travel Channel’s Mysteries at the Museum, has served as a paranormal consultant on projects that have aired on A&E, Destination America, and the Discovery Channel, and is a regular guest on highly-rated radio programs like Coast to Coast AM. He enjoys collecting vintage paranormal ephemera, a strong cup of coffee, and driving long stretches of dirt road. He once scored 19 out of 25 correct choices in a Zener card test. He doesn’t like it when people yell at ghosts.

Dana Matthews is a supernatural sleuth, occult museum curator, and magic practitioner, and she’s been actively investigating the strange and the anomalous for well over 15 years. Founder of the world’s first all-female paranormal investigation team, Dana formally began her adventures into the world of the unexplained in the late 90’s, though she chalks her interest in the subject of the strange to way too many episodes of The X-Files as a kid. With nearly two decades of research into everything from residual hauntings, to Bigfoot hotspots, to bizarre Fortean events, Dana is one of the paranormal field’s most seasoned veterans when it comes to investigating and documenting strange claims. Dana’s paranormal expertise has been featured in appearances on hit television series like TLC’s Paranormal Lockdown, Kindred Spirits, and Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot, and if you’re Canadian, you might even recognize Dana as the lead investigator on SPACE’s internationally syndicated series The Girly Ghosthunters. Premiering in 2004, The Girly Ghosthunters stands as one the first North American ghost hunting series to feature a real paranormal investigation team each week, launching alongside SyFy’s Ghost Hunters and helping pave the way for programs like Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures. Her passions include all things Tolkien, M-rated Sherlock fan fiction, late-night paranormal adventures, and her two cat-children Gordon and Pete.

Witness Accounts: Volume Three

Jul 2, 2018 43:50

Description:

On episode 63 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan shares five mysterious and deeply personal UFO encounters from witnesses from around the world. From orbs that shut down the power in a family's home to an egg-shaped craft that floated ominously over a witness's head. From a multi-colored triangle keeping pace with a moving vehicle to a young boy in who stared up at a burning red sphere that stopped in mid-air and then shot off into the distance. We then cap it off with a dramatic string of events that left a witness in England completely baffled to this day.

On episode 59 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan starts things off with a portion of his recent appearance on the Hound Tall Discussion Series with Moshe Kasher. Along with Moshe was Irish comedian, Aisling Bea, and the Oscar-nominated husband-and-wife duo, Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon. Recorded live at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, the four discussed over seventy years of UFOs with Ryan to a sold-out audience. Were they convinced of a legitimate UFO phenomenon and cover-up?

Then, Ryan speaks with podcast host, Jim Perry, about the surprise return of his highly acclaimed show, Euphomet. Euphomet is a podcast about occulture, the esoteric and the enchanted. We are in search of the other side…the thing under your bed…that signal of unknown origin…and the true stories behind the strange phenomena that are outside the sphere of popular consciousness. They discuss this and so much more in this week's episode.

Today, we talk all about the return of the show, along with its parent company, Gnomish Hat. We also talk about Jim's other endeavors while Euphomet was on hiatus, including starting DEFY Wrestling and visiting the enigmatic and UFO-infested mountains of the Eseti Ranch. We then hear exclusive audio from the all-new Euphomet episode, "Possession". We cap things off getting deep into the occult and lifting the veil on spiritualism and science.

Special thanks to Moshe Kasher, Nerdist, Euphomet, Gnomish Hat, and to all the listeners!

TRAVIS: The True Story of Travis Walton

May 14, 2018 01:26:22

Description:

On episode 56 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan first speaks with Greg Bishop about the 2018 Esotericon that they will be speaking at on May 19th and 20th in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The event is completely free to the public. To learn more and to attend, use the contact tab at: www.winterlightproductions.com

Then Ryan sits down face-to-face with Jennifer Stein and Peter Robbins, co-producers of the award-winning documentary, Travis: The True Story of Travis Walton

Driving home after a day of clearing brush in the forest, six lumberjacks come upon a 40-foot disk hovering silently over the crest of a ridge. As if spellbound, Travis Walton jumps from the passenger side of the truck, running towards it for a closer look. That decision on November 5th, 1975, would change him forever. The 21-year-old logger from Snowflake, Arizona was struck by a powerful blue beam of light from the craft. He disappeared for five days, igniting a firestorm of controversy aimed at the logging crew who were the last to see him. Travis Walton’s 1975 experience comes alive as he recounts the ordeal.

TRAVIS combines new and archived interviews with the logging crew, police and the polygraph examiner. Walton explains how this event changed his life forever, as the media, skeptics and debunkers attacked him, his friends and family. UFO experts explain why this story continues to astound investigators, astrophysicists and journalists as they investigate for reliable evidence of other worlds, other beings, and more advanced technologies. 

Guest Bios:

Greg Bishop: Greg Bishop is a writer, researcher and radio host from Los Angeles. He hosts the long-running program Radio Mistirioso, and is the author of Project Beta, It Defies Language, Weird California, and Wake Up Down There.

Incident in Lake County: A Found Footage Conspiracy

May 7, 2018 01:51:39

Description:

On episode 55 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we welcome filmmaker, Dean Alioto to the show.

Dean Alioto is the creator of the mysterious and enigmatic UPN TV special Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County (aka The McPherson Tape). For two decades, Alioto’s TV special has generated conspiracies worldwide and has been studied by top experts in the field of UFOs and alien abductions. Alioto runs us through the trials and tribulations of creating the TV special and the reaction to it upon airing. In addition, Alioto also talks about the original video that the controversial TV special was based on. Known simply as, UFO Abduction, this video brought the house down at the 1993 International UFO Congress Convention with its shocking footage of a family being abducted by aliens.

Alioto and Ryan then dig deep into why so many people refuse to believe these two films were created instead of "found". Then Alioto runs us through a few of his favorite UFO cases. This is a jam-packed interview with the filmmaker who arguably created the entire "Found Footage" genre, almost ten years prior to The Blair Witch Project.

Guest Bio: Dean Alioto studied film at both University of Southern California and San Francisco State University. Alioto’s theatrical film debut, Crashing Eden, won several national and international awards. The dark satire was praised by Variety, singling out Alioto’s writing and his ability to work with actors. Alioto’s second film, L.A. Dicks, told the story of two Los Angeles detectives who pitch their real-life cases to Hollywood. The film went on to receive the Spirit Award at the Toronto International RebelFest Film Festival. In addition to filmmaking, Alioto is a drummer and enjoys playing with his fellow musicians in the band, Uncle Bob and The Wonderland Express.

Frankenstein and Flying Saucers

Apr 30, 2018 29:07

Description:

On episode 54 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan shares his essay that was featured in the recently released book, UFOs: Reframing the Debate. The book, comprised and edited by Robbie Graham, features over a dozen authors from around the world who have contributed their thoughts, theories, and approaches to studying the UFO phenomenon. 

The essay, titled, "Frankenstein and Flying Saucers: Creating, Destroying, and Re-animating a Phenomenal Monster," draws parallels between the universally praised story of Frankenstein's monster and the ever-evolving, devolving, and monstrous phenomena and study of UFOs. 

As you'll hear in the essay, Ryan draws from the work of theorists and researchers including Carl Jung, Jacques Vallée, Jenny Randles, David Clarke, and Greg Bishop. It considers the enduring appeal of the UFO in modern culture, ufology’s long (and perhaps futile) struggle for legitimacy, and the questionable inclination of so many UFO researchers to label the phenomenon as “extraterrestrial.” Ryan does not discount the possibility of otherworldly visitation, but he ushers the reader gently down other avenues of inquiry and suggests we may sooner come to grips with the nature of the UFO phenomenon by seeking to unravel the complexities of human cognition and our own perceptual apparatus.

Special thanks to Robbie Graham and White Crow Books for allowing Ryan to share the essay in its entirety. To purchase the book, CLICK HERE

Owls, UFOs, and a Deeper Reality

Mar 26, 2018 01:18:10

Description:

On episode 49 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan speaks with author, Mike Clelland, about his recently released book, Stories From the Messengers: Owls, UFOs, and a Deeper Reality. This book is a companion to the groundbreaking ideas that began with Mike Clelland's earlier book, The Messengers. It is a further exploration of the connection, both symbolic and literal, between owls and UFOs. There is a strangeness to these accounts that defies any simple explanation. Each chapter tells a deeply personal story where these mysterious experiences are explored in depth. The ancient mythology of the owl is repeating itself within the modern UFO report. What plays out is a journey of transformation, with an owl at the heart of each story. And in this episode, Mike tells some of those incredible stories and where they may fit in the entire UFO mystery and beyond.

Guest Bio: Mike Clelland’s 2015 book, The Messengers, was met with high praise. In it, he explores the mysterious connection between owls, synchronicities and UFO abduction. It was his first-hand experiences with these elusive events that have been the foundation for his research. The book is also a personal memoir and a journey of self-discovery. His website, www.hiddenexperience.blogspot.com, explores these events and their connection to the alien contact phenomenon. It also features extended audio interviews with visionaries and experts examining the complexities of the overall UFO experience. Mike is also considered an expert in the skills of ultralight backpacking and is the author and illustrator of a series of instructional books on advanced outdoor techniques. After 25 years living in the Rockies, he now lives in the Adirondacks.

This is the story of David Huggins, a seventy-two-year-old who lost his virginity to an alien woman-among a hundred other E.T. encounters- and chronicled it all in surreal paintings, few of which have ever been seen. Until now.

Ryan and Brad discuss the film in depth, diving deep into the bizarre accounts of Huggins and what the people in his life think about it all.

The Extraordinary Life and Strange Death of James Forrestal - Part 2

Feb 12, 2018 49:41

Description:

On episode 43 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we continue our journey with Peter Robbins through the mysterious death of James Forrestal. This is PART 2 of the series.

On May 22nd, 1949, Forrestal fell to his death from the sixteenth-floor window of Bethesda Naval Hospital, where he was treated for “depression”. An official U.S. Navy Medical Review Board convened on his death, after examining all doctors and witnesses who were in the vicinity. They could not establish the reason for Forrestal's fall. The peculiar circumstances of Forrestal's death, and the U.S. government's withholding of the complete report of the review board until 2004 has led to much speculation and controversy.

What many are not aware of is that Forrestal has also been connected to the controversial MJ-12 group, an alleged secret committee of scientists, military leaders, and government officials, formed in 1947 by an executive order by then U.S. President, Harry Truman, to facilitate recovery and investigation of alien spacecraft. Before his departure as Secretary of Defense, Forrestal had a mental breakdown, which ultimately led to his untimely death. What did he know? What was he told? And what exactly happened to him in the hospital as he plunged downward into tragedy and questionable history?

Guest Bio: Peter Robbins is an investigative writer, author, and lecturer, best known for his books, columns, articles, radio commentaries, interviews and conference talks. He has appeared as a guest on and been a consultant to numerous television programs and documentaries. Peter was born in Queens, New York and studied art, design, and theater at the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut. He received his BFA (painting, film history) from New York City’s School of Visual Arts (SVA) where he also taught painting for a dozen years. In the mid-1980s, he became seriously involved in UFO research when his knowledge of classified data indicated to him the US government was not telling the public the truth about UFOs.

Brian Huskey: X-Files, People of Earth, and the Lost Art of Forehead Sweat

Feb 5, 2018 39:44

Description:

On episode 42 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan speaks with actor, Brian Huskey, about his recent appearance on the stand-out episode of The X-Files, "The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat", written and directed by beloved fan-favorite, Darin Morgan, best known for his meta comedic episodes of the hit series.

While exploring the idea of the Mandela Effect, in which groups of people remember an alternate history, Mulder and Scully discover how the X-Files may have originated. Huskey plays the role of "Reggie Something", a peculiar stranger who confronts Mulder and Scully, explaining that he may, in fact, be no stranger, but their third partner. Not only that, but Reggie may have been the originator of the X-Files, and may hold the key to finding the Truth to what is, and always has, been out there.

Huskey navigates us through his experiences on the episode, his thoughts on what the episode meant both on the surface and the bigger picture, and then he gives his personal thoughts on UFOs, alien abductions, and the great debate of facts v.s. proof in today's truth-malleable world. It was a funny, fascinating, and refreshing journey to find answers by one of today's most talented performers and newfound X-Files favorite!

Guest Bio: Brian Huskey was an original member of the Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB), having been featured early on in Late Night with Conan O'Brien and VH1's Best Week Ever.  He's also made many guest appearances on comedy programs including Community, Parks and Recreation, Happy Endings, Animal Practice, The Inbetweeners, Workaholics, Veep, and most recently, The X-Files. He appeared in films such as Superbad, Step Brothers, Semi-Pro, and Meet Dave. In 2014, Huskey co-wrote the film, A Better You, with UCB co-founder, Matt Walsh. Currently, he stars as Richard on the TBS alien abduction comedy, People of Earth.

The Incredible Story of Bob Lazar

Jan 8, 2018 55:17

Description:

On episode 38 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan gives a detailed overview of the Bob Lazar story. 

Bob Lazar claims to have worked on reverse engineering extraterrestrial technology at a site called S-4, near the Area 51 test facility, and that the UFOs use gravity wave propulsion. When he broke the story to KLAS news, all hell broke loose, and we now know of Area 51 primarily because of Bob Lazar. 

With audio documentation from Lazar himself, and featuring investigative news reporter, George Knapp, we hear all about how the story came to be. We also hear criticisms of the story from UFO researcher, Stanton Friedman. We wrap things up hearing about recent developments discovered by investigative filmmaker, Jeremy Corbell. This episode navigates the crazy maze that is Bob Lazar and his incredible story of flying saucers and the facility that may have possibly reverse-engineered them. 

Audio clips provided by George Knapp and KLAS News. Additional audio provided by Jeremy Corbell and Open Minds Production LLC.

Robbie Graham: Silver Screen Saucers

Nov 12, 2017 01:34:16

Description:

On episode 31 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan speaks with Robbie Graham, author of Silver Screen Saucers: Sorting Fact From Fantasy in Hollywood's UFO Movies

More so than any other medium, cinema has shaped our expectations of potential alien life and visitation. But what messages does Hollywood project to us about our possible otherworldly neighbors? From where do UFO movies draw their inspiration, and what other factors—cultural and conspiratorial—might influence their production and content? 

Robbie brings us through his examination of the DNA that builds our perceptions of the UFO mystery. One strand of this DNA weaves real events, stories, and people from the historical record of UFOlogy, while the other spins and twists with the film and TV products they have inspired. It is a marriage of reality and mythology that perpetuates and manipulates everything we know, or at least think we know about UFOs.

Guest Bio: Robbie Graham has lectured around the world on the UFO subject and has been interviewed for the BBC, Coast to Coast AM, Canal+ TV, Channel 4, and Vanity Fair, among many others. His articles have appeared in numerous publications, including The Guardian, New Statesman, Filmfax, and Fortean Times. He holds first class degrees in Film, Television and Radio Studies and Cinema Studies from Staffordshire University and the University of Bristol respectively. He is the author of Silver Screen Saucers: Sorting Fact from Fantasy in Hollywood’s UFO Movies (White Crow Books, 2015) and the editor of UFOs: Reframing the Debate(White Crow Books, 2017).

The Andreasson Abduction

Nov 6, 2017 46:36

Description:

On episode 30 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan returns to UFOs with a detailed overview of the 1967 Betty Andreasson UFO abduction case. 

One calm night, Betty was finishing dinner with her family when a group of non-human creatures entered her home, paralyzed her family into a state of suspended animation, and proceeded to abduct her and perform examinations on her aboard their craft. 

This case is highly controversial and hotly debated. We'll hear from listeners on just what they think of the entire affair. We will then hear from Peter Robbins, UFO researcher and former assistant of the late abduction researcher, Budd Hopkins. What does Robbins make of this bizarre case? Could it all be an elaborate hoax? Or was Betty Andreasson taken aboard a craft in what she believed to be a half alien/half religious experience of cosmic proportions?

Guest Bio: Peter Robbins is an investigative writer, author, and lecturer, best known for his books, columns, articles, radio commentaries, interviews and conference talks. He has appeared as a guest on and been a consultant to numerous television programs and documentaries. Peter was born in Queens New York and studied art, design, and theater at the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut. He received his BFA (painting, film history) from New York City’s School of Visual Arts (SVA) where he also taught painting for a dozen years. In the mid-1980s, he became seriously involved in UFO research when his knowledge of classified data indicated to him the US government was not telling the public the truth about UFOs.

Brian Bethel: Black Eyed Kid Phenomenon

Oct 30, 2017 53:11

Description:

On episode 29 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan speaks with Brian Bethel, arguably the first ever witness to come across the Black-Eyed Kids (BEKs) phenomenon. In 1996, Bethel was parked in a desolate parking lot when two young boys began to knock on his window, begging and pleading for a ride home. What happened next would completely terrify Bethel and change the rest of his life.

Since this first account of these mysterious black-eyed children, thousands of stories have permeated through both word-of-mouth and online lore, sparking a phenomenon that has grown in both mystery and debate. Bethel recounts that harrowing night, how his story ultimately was leaked and went viral at the advent of the internet, and just exactly what he believes may lay behind the dark, soulless eyes of the black-eyed kids.

Oct 16, 2017 48:23

Description:

On episode 27 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan first discusses the recent announcement made by Tom DeLonge regarding his new endeavor, the To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science. The academy has mobilized a team of the most experienced, connected and passionately curious minds from the US intelligence community, including the CIA and Department of Defense that have been operating under the shadows of top-secrecy for decades.   The team members all share a common thread of frustration and determination to disrupt the status quo, wanting to use their expertise and credibility to bring transformative science and engineering out of the shadows and collaborate with global citizens to apply that knowledge in a way that benefits humanity.

Then Ryan speaks with Aaron Mahnke, creator, and host of the critically acclaimed LORE Podcast. With the recent release of the Amazon television adaptation, Mahnke and Ryan discuss the power of storytelling and that the mysteries of humankind can often be much scarier than anything we could conjure up in our minds.

Guest Bio: Aaron is the writer, host, and producer of Lore, as well as the author of a number of supernatural thrillers. Aaron has a deep love of the mysterious and frightening that began with Unsolved Mysteries and The X-Files - a love that continues to this day.

He lives with his family in the historic Boston area, in the very heart of Lovecraft Country and the epicenter of the Salem witch trials.

Chris Garetano: Dark Files and the Montauk Project

Sep 25, 2017 59:48

Description:

On episode 24 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan speaks with Chris Garetano about his lifelong search for answers to the Montauk Project, said to have been carried out at Camp Hero on Long Island, NY.

The government claims that this site is a shuttered military base that once protected Americans, but for decades endless rumors maintain that the United States government engaged in a pattern of covert behavior that saw it experiment on its own citizens in such programs as the Tuskegee Experiments and MK Ultra. Could Montauk’s Camp Hero–with its rumors of mind control experiments, acid tests, child abductions, possible alien contact, and time travel have any truth behind it? 

Chris is a filmmaker who released a documentary in 2015 titled, THE MONTAUK CHRONICLES, which covered these very rumors and accusations by those who claimed to have been there. Some admitted having participated in the experiments while some even claimed to have been those experimented on. The film was then expanded on in a recent History Channel special called THE DARK FILES. With a thorough investigation by Steve Volk, Barry Eisler, and Chris himself, they unravel the mystery one witness at a time and find stunning evidence that the Montauk Project may be shockingly all too real. Chris gives us the inside scoop on both the documentary and the television special and reveals some of the incredible evidence they uncovered in their dark and mysterious investigation.

Guest Bio: Christopher Paul Garetano is the owner and president of White Phosphorus Pictures LLC. In 2005 He released his first documentary titled, Horror Business; an experimental study regarding the struggles of independent horror movie making. In 2006 he set out to make Montauk Chronicles, focusing on the alleged secret experiments that are said to have been conducted between 1971 and 1983. The final version of Montauk Chronicles was completed in the winter of 2014 and it premiered at the Philip K. Dick Film Festival, in New York City (in January of 2015) where it won the “Best Documentary Prize.” Christopher is an executive producer, director of re-creations and the co-host of the new History Channel show, The Dark Files. In addition to several motion picture projects, he is currently developing a new science fiction thriller with another Network, for 2018.

The Truth Is Out There with the Guilty Pleasure Podcast

Sep 18, 2017 01:00:54

Description:

On episode 23 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan sits down at The Nerdist School in Los Angeles to talk with Amanda Salvatore and Jackie Rae Aubel of The Guilty Pleasure Podcast. Each week, the ladies bring on guests to discuss their guiltiest of pleasures, and they grill Ryan on his most guilty obsession; The X-Files.

In one of the longest-running science fiction series in network TV history, FBI special agents investigate unexplained, mind-bending cases known as "X-Files." Though the government is convinced that the outlandish reports are false, conspiracy theorist Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and realist Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson), for most of the series, stop at nothing to prove that "the truth is out there."

Amanda, Jackie, and Ryan navigate their way through the insanely complex alien conspiracy throughout the series, the steamy sexual tension between Mulder and Scully, and where the show is heading when it returns for an eleventh season in early 2018. The truth is in this episode, and you have been given top secret access to listen now. TRUST NO ONE! 

Guest Bios:

Jackie Rae Aubel is a writer, comedian, and producer based in Los Angeles. She has studied improv and sketch comedy at the Upright Citizen's Brigade (NY), the People's Improv Theatre (NY) and the Nerdist School (LA). For the past 5 years, she's written, produced and directed both live and scripted comedy. She's currently a writer and actor on the Nerdist School house sketch team, 'The Vanities'. She is also co-host and producer of the 'Guilty Pleasure Show' on Project Alpha and the 'Guilty Pleasure Podcast' on the Nerdist School Network.

Amanda Salvatore recently moved from her beloved New York to the ever sunny LA. She's loving her time here, but not so surprisingly misses Dollar Slice (specifically 99 Cent Express Pizza on 43rd and 8th). She used to sing and "dance" in musicals for many years but decided that writing jokes was a way more sensible life choice. She has studied improv and/or sketch writing with UCB, IO West, The Magnet, and The Nerdist School. She is a part of the improv group, The Vanities.

Mike Clelland: The Messengers

Sep 12, 2017 01:25:02

Description:

On episode 22 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan pulls another fascinating interview out of the INTO THE FRAY archives. This time, he speaks with author and researcher, Mike Clelland, about his book, The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity and the UFO Abductee.

Without question, this is a classic by one of the most exciting new authors in the UFO field today. After reading it, your view of reality will never be the same. The owl has held a place of reverence and mystique throughout history. And as strange as this might seem, owls are also showing up in conjunction with the UFO experience.

Mike Clelland has collected a wealth of first-hand accounts in which owls manifest in the highly charged moments that surround alien contact. There is a strangeness to these accounts that defy simple explanations. This book explores implications that go far beyond what more conservative researchers would dare consider. But the owl connection encompasses more than the UFO experience. It also includes profound synchronicities, ancient archetypes, dreams, shamanistic experiences, personal transformation, and death. From the mythic legends of our ancient past to the first-hand accounts of the UFO abductee, owls are playing some vital role. This is also a deeply personal story. It is an odyssey of self-discovery as the author grapples with his own owl and UFO encounters. What plays out is a story of transformation with the owl at the heart of this journey.

Guest Bio: Mike Clelland is an avid outdoorsman, illustrator and UFO researcher. He has written extensively on the subject of alien abductions, synchronicities and owls. It was his first-hand experiences with these elusive events that have been the foundation for this research. His website explores these events and their connections to the alien contact phenomenon. This site also features extended audio interviews with visionaries and experts examining the complexities of the overall UFO experience.  Beyond that, Mike is considered an expert in the skills of ultralight backpacking, and has authored or illustrated a series of instructional books focused on advanced outdoor techniques. He spent nearly 25 years living in the Rockies, and now lives in the Adirondacks. Visit his website at: www.hiddenexperience.blogspot.com

BONUS EPISODE : Reviewing "IT" with Andrew Sanford

Sep 11, 2017 57:20

Description:

On a special BONUS episode of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan and Andrew sit down after both attending opening night releases of the highly anticipated 2017 remake of 'IT'.

'IT' tells the story of seven children in Derry, Maine, who are terrorized by the eponymous being, only to face their own personal demons in the process. Adapted from the 1986 Stephen King novel, the 2017 film was directed by Andy Muschietti and written by Chase Palmer, Cary Fukunaga, and Gary Dauberman. It starred Bill Skarsgard, Jaeden Lieberher, Sophia Lillis, and Finn Wolfhard

With opening box office numbers skyrocketing through the roof, the film garnered a lot of positive reviews and buzz. But did it truly live up to the hype? This is a SPOILER HEAVY and very opinionated dissection of the film by two die-hard Stephen King fans and horror movie buffs in general. So grab your popcorn, hold on to your paper boats, and tune in to hear our thoughts on The Loser's Club. And maybe... just maybe... you'll float too!

Guest Bio: Andrew Sanford is a writer/performer in New York City. As a writer he has written a full-length graphic novel, Gwendolyn, that was published in 2014 and he has twice been a featured writer in the 2014 and 2016 ABC New Talent Showcases.

MJ Banias: Whiskey, UFOs, and Shaking the ET Hypothesis

Aug 14, 2017 01:14:31

Description:

On episode 18 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan sits down with MJ Banias. This was a deep conversation that could only be processed with whiskey in hand. In this case, it was Maple Whiskey for Ryan, and a 15-year-old scotch for MJ. As a cultural theorist and peripheral student of philosophy, MJ runs us through his thoughts on the UFO topic, the UFO subculture, and the many ways to approach ufology as we move forward in this deeply enigmatic and unapologetic topic. What does ufology have to do with capitalism? Is there room for skeptics and debunkers when it comes to the UFO question? And just exactly how can we move forward without even connecting aliens to the UFO mystery? All these questions and more are asked in this booze-fueled episode that shatters the UFO mythos and picks up the pieces in a whole new light. 

Guest Bio: MJ Banias is a writer, blogger, and theorist with a background in Critical Theory, History, and Cultural Studies who critically and philosophically examines the weird, the strange and the anomalous.  He was a former field investigator with MUFON, has been featured on multiple podcasts and contributes to Mysterious Universe and Rogue Planet. His work is also featured in a new book entitled UFOs: Reframing the Debate. He is also the creator of the blog, TERRA OBSCURA. This blog is aimed at critically exploring the culture, the people, and the ideas that shape what society considers inexplicable. Using aspects of philosophy, critical theory, and cultural studies, TO questions the common ideologies that form and inform our knowledge concerning bizarre incidents, anomalous paranormal events, UFOs, synchronicities, and other events people consider "strange."

Peter Robbins: Imagery, Reality, and UFOs: Sorting Truth From Fiction

Aug 7, 2017 01:55:12

Description:

This episode is dedicated to the memory of Jim Marrs (1943-2017)

On episode 17 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan speaks briefly about the recent passing of conspiracy legend and author, Jim Marrs. Then, he sits down with Peter Robbins, UFO researcher and author for an in-studio discussion. After a few beers, Robbins runs us through a brand new lecture he's currently shaping and refining on the following: 

The lecture begins with questioning why 'we' respond to the subject of UFOs the way we do and how society was conditioned to understand that UFOs are nonsense. What constitutes 'proof,' or at the least, UFO related images we should consider taking seriously? What about 'ancient aliens' type images? What about other historical imagery? What we can learn from pre-digital UFO photographs, and what marks the 'real' ones as authentic? How did UFO news coverage, that is print journalism, impact public thinking in the 1940s? And what was the legacy it implanted in the public's psyches? How will the truth ultimately manifest itself? Alternate theories are examined and considered in this episode.

WARNING: This conversation relied heavily on images. For the best representation, It's highly suggested that you follow along at the following link while listening for the best experience.

Guest Bio: Peter Robbins is an investigative writer, author, and lecturer, best known for his books, columns, articles, radio commentaries, interviews and conference talks He has appeared as a guest on and been a consultant to numerous television programs and documentaries.

On episode 16 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan is joined by Sammy Waisenen, host of the popular podcast, THE HOWL HORROR PROGRAM. This is a podcast mash-up where Ryan and Sammy discuss their personal UFO sightings, what they love about horror movies, and their admiration for the 1993 film, FIRE IN THE SKY.

FIRE IN THE SKY is the comprehensive story of a logger named Travis Walton who mysteriously disappears in 1975. Walton and co-workers accidentally discover a UFO and unfortunately, they all escape except Walton who is elevated aboard the bizarre aircraft. As time passes, the small town of Snowflake, Arizona begins to believe that the other loggers are covering up the murder of Walton. But when Walton shows up sometime later, his story of what happened is both incredible and downright terrifying.

Sammy and Ryan dissect the film and go in depth about the dichotomy between the Hollywood version and the actual events that Travis Walton recounted to the public. It was a fresh take on this classic UFO film. Will there be a remake that follows Walton's version in a more accurate light? And what stunning revelations has Travis Walton brought forward about what truly happened to him on the craft that night? Tune in to find out.

Guest Bio: Sammy Waisanen is the creator and host of the HOWL HORROR PROGRAM; a podcast devoted to horror movies of all kinds, from all eras. Each episode, Sammy brings on a wide range of guests including musicians, authors, burlesque performers, and television horror hosts to discuss the movies they love, and why they love them. Sammy is also the co-host of the BACK TO LIFE PODCAST, a podcast about the finer things in life like; fast food, television, aliens, music, and complaining about anything and everything. Both shows can be found on iTunes, Stitcher, and at www.backtolifepodcast.com. Outside of podcasting, Sammy has always been interested in a wide range of topics including talk radio, cryptozoology, UFO's & aliens, the paranormal, and true crime.

David Jenkins: People of Earth

Jul 24, 2017 51:17

Description:

On episode 15 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan is joined by David Jenkins. Jenkins is the creator and executive producer of the hit television series, PEOPLE OF EARTH, on TBS Network. The show is a gentle and modestly pleasing comedy about a support group for alien abductees, but as we learn in this interview, it's about much more. Jenkins explains the inception of the show, his thorough research into the UFO and abduction phenomenon, and where the show is heading with its second season premiering tonight!

Jenkins doesn't do podcast interviews often, let alone a UFO one, so it was a huge honor to have him on the show. It's also very clear that although the show may be considered a comedy, the heart and compassion brought forward by the creative team behind PEOPLE OF EARTH is palpable, and no matter your beliefs on the alien abduction phenomenon, this is a show worth watching, and a topic worth discussing as we continue to reach further and further out into the cosmos. 

Guest Bio: David Jenkins received undergraduate degrees in political science and philosophy from Boston University, and an MFA in acting from New York University. While working as an actor in both New York and Chicago, he began writing plays, eventually founding a theater company called "Human Animals". PEOPLE OF EARTH is his first television project.

Jeremy Corbell: UFOs as a Clockwork Orange

Jul 17, 2017 01:15:03

Description:

On episode 14 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan first reads an email from Tommy, a listener out of Fife, Scotland. Tommy recounts perhaps one of the strangest UFO encounters Ryan's ever come across. So strange in fact, that it seems as though something truly trickster-like was at play. Whatever Tommy saw, it seemed as though it were some sort of performance or display played out before his innocent eyes. This bleeds into the interview this week with filmmaker, Jeremy Corbell. Jeremy speaks of his recent experiences at Contact in the Desert, including introducing UFO researchers, Linda Moulton Howe and Jacques Vallée. Jeremy then dives deep into his own presentation, 'UFOs are a Clockwork Orange.' Could the UFO phenomenon be some sort of display set forth by an advanced artificial intelligence? Could the machines or objects we see somewhere in the skies be a projection whose source lay somewhere in time and space? And if so, are we truly helpless against its playful agenda? The conversation then moves into a shocking film of Jeremy's called 'Patient Seventeen', in which a surgeon claims to remove highly advanced implants which could represent nanotechnology microchips, supposedly embedded by aliens. We then move into Jeremy's current work with investigative news reporter, George Knapp, on the infamous Skinwalker Ranch. It was a vast and deeply compelling conversation in which Jeremy Corbell hopes to weaponize your curiosity. 

Guest Bio: Jeremy Corbell is an American contemporary artist and investigative filmmaker based in Los Angeles, California. He's has been deep in the trenches documenting extraordinary individuals and their belief systems. This research has taken him into the worlds of nanotechnology, advanced aerospace exploration, exotic propulsion systems, as well as, an in-depth examination into the life and discoveries of the enigmatic “Godfather of Conspiracy” John Lear. Corbell has documented the surgical removal of alleged off-world alien implants, and with access to NASA, he has filmed the analysis of anomalous materials alleged to be physical evidence of extraterrestrial nanotechnology from UFO landing sites. Corbell has obtained death-bed confessions from former CIA and government intelligence officials, who claim to expose the truth about the UFO reality and the worldwide coverup of the ultimate truth. He has deeply investigated the Bob Lazar UFO case, and all the individuals associated with his claims. Corbell’s film work reveals how ideas, held by credible individuals, can alter the way we experience reality, and force us to reconsider the fabric of our own beliefs.

What exactly does punk music have in common with the UFO topic? And how has Damante infused this into his own research into the topic?

Simon Sharman: Cosmic Whistleblowers

Jul 3, 2017 01:11:27

Description:

On Episode 12 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES: In celebration of the 70th anniversary of the 1947 Roswell crash, Ryan speaks with documentary filmmaker, Simon Sharman. They discuss his new film, Cosmic Whistleblowers. What began as one final attempt to interview the last living witnesses of the Roswell UFO incident of 1947 unexpectedly turns into a two-year investigation of the UFO investigators themselves, in what some have said is the most revealing documentary ever made about the UFO issue. With incredible interviews given by retired military personnel with Top Secret clearance, ex-NASA officials and others who became embroiled in this extraordinary event, Cosmic Whistleblowers is the final and perhaps last chance at discovering the truth on the biggest UFO mystery of the last century.

Guest Bio: Simon Sharman grew up in the 1970s on a tv and film diet of Space 1999, Star Wars, and Alien, but it was 1960s tv series, The Invaders, that sticks in his mind over all the rest. During his early twenties whilst studying a business degree, he realized he wanted to make films more than making money. Since then, he's made countless films in the form of tv broadcasts across major UK channels. His work covered producing live format studio shows, music documentaries, entertainment series and even directing shoots on real life crime shows. And whilst all this was happening he was still finding the time to build what eventually became a substantial personal library on the UFO subject. He started researching UFO material in 1989 and never stopped.  Being the one topic he doesn't get bored of, he decided it was probably a good idea to make his films about this. Cosmic Whistleblowers was his debut feature film on the subject.

Jane Kyle: UFOs Over Texas

Jun 5, 2017 51:26

Description:

On episode 08 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan begins with a recent '60 Minutes' interview with aerospace millionaire, Robert Bigelow, where he made dramatic claims that not only are UFOs real, but that the occupants of these craft have already visited the planet and continue to do so. Ryan then speaks with Jane Kyle, a UFO researcher out of Texas. They discuss some of the more famous cases to come out of the area, such as the Cash/Landrum incident and the Stephenville Lights. Jane then brings us through some of her personal investigations and research into local cases, including a strange ring of light in Houston and mysterious humming noises throughout Texas. The conversation is rounded out by Jane's personal thoughts on getting younger people involved in UFO studies, and she also comments on the whole Tom DeLonge controversy in respect to his UFO work. In a state whose unofficial motto is "Go Big or Go Home!", we certainly lived up to said motto in this episode.

Jane Kyle is a UFO researcher and writer living in Texas, and has documented over 1,000 local and worldwide UFO sightings since beginning the site in 2012. With a journalism degree from the University of Texas at Austin, a ten-year career in writing and marketing, and an addiction to exploring the unknown, she offers up a unique perspective on the subject matter. Jane lives with her husband, son, three dogs, and cat in her home state of Texas. She is definitely not an alien hybrid. Visit Jane at: www.TexasUFOs.com

Nick Redfern: The Roswell UFO Conspiracy

May 29, 2017 01:10:03

Description:

On episode 07 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan speaks with author and researcher, Nick Redfern. 

In 2005, a book hit the shelves that completely shattered the Roswell UFO incident into pieces, and caused quite a stir in the UFO community and beyond. Rather than a crashed UFO piloted by alien beings, a new theory was brought to the table: a highly confidential, U.S. government-sanctioned program to conduct medical experiments on handicapped, disfigured, and diseased Japanese POWs, exploited as "expendable" victims by their captors and flown at high altitudes in advanced balloons and possible aircraft over the New Mexico desert. That book was Bodysnatchers in the Desert: The Horrible Truth at the Heart of the Roswell Story. Now, author, Nick Redfern, has stirred the pot once more expanding on the information in a follow-up book, The Roswell UFO Conspiracy: Exposing a Shocking and Sinister Secret. Ryan speaks with Redfern about the new information he's uncovered concerning his original theories on what crashed in 1947, and who may have been responsible. As we head toward the 70th anniversary, is it possible that the most famous UFO incident of all time may, in fact, have had nothing to do with UFOs and aliens at all?

Guest Bio: Nick Redfern is the author of more than forty books. They include Men in Black; Women in Black; and 365 Days of UFOs. Nick has appeared on many TV shows, including the BBC’s Out of This World; the SyFy Channel’s Proof Positive; the History Channel’s Monster Quest, America’s Book of Secrets, Ancient Aliens UFO Hunters, the National Geographic Channel’s Paranatural, and MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann.

Susan Demeter-St. Clair : UFOs and the Parapsychological

May 22, 2017 01:19:08

Description:

On episode six of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan reads a very compelling listener email from a UFO witness, who in 1980 at the age of fourteen, watched in awe as a large triangular craft hovered over her vehicle near Man Lake in Alberta, Canada. As she stared upward, she felt as though whatever controlled the craft was also controlling her thoughts, and somehow knew what she was feeling and thinking. 

The notion of a psychic aspect to UFO sightings bleeds over into this week's discussion with guest, Susan Demeter-St. Clair. Ryan and Susan discuss several cases that she's researched where not only psychic and telepathic communications may have been involved, but that elements of high strangeness and the paranormal may, in fact, have more to do with the UFO question than we truly give it credit for. And how do these aspects affect the witness or experiencer during and after the event? It was a fascinating discussion of these often overlooked aspects of UFO reports that certainly raise new questions.

Guest Bio: Susan Demeter-St. Clair is a professional research assistant, author, editor, and PSI experimenter. Her research interests include individual and institutional responses to anomalies and exceptional human experiences, and how they interact and enact change within groups and large institutions, such as the military. Her life took on the framework of UFO experience after an encounter in 1990, and she considers anomaly studies to be her true life’s work. She has established both ParaResearchers of Ontario, and Paranormal Studies and Inquiry Canada as online educational resources for those wishing to explore the subject of anomalous events. Susan has conducted field research on unusual light phenomena and lectured on this subject at the Ontario Institute for Studies & Education, University of Toronto. She is currently collaborating with Eric Ouellet, Ph.D. of the Canadian Forces College on new approaches to UFO studies through the lenses of scientific Parapsychology. At the time of this publication, Susan is conducting a series of independent experiments based in part on the work of the late mathematician, Dr. A.R.G Owen and psychotherapist Dr. Joel Whitton that will be the focus of a book on UFOs, social PSI, and Magick.

Ruben Uriarte: UFOs Over Mexico and the Southwest

May 15, 2017 01:21:24

Description:

On episode five of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan introduces us to a UFO sighting that occurred in 2004 in which the Mexican Air Force reported eleven UFOs during a routine patrol flight. Infrared cameras mounted on the plane were able to capture the UFOs. Radio transmissions and an official report given to the Mexican Secretary of Defense made this a very intriguing case that received very little attention in the United States. 

The UFO topic is often seen through very western eyes within the United States. But many extraordinary cases have occurred both on the southwestern border and through the skies and grounds of Mexico. And one individual who has looked extensively into these cases is Ruben Uriarte. In this episode, he and Ryan discuss the strange case known as the Cisco Grove incident, in which a UFO witness spent an entire night fighting off an entire fleet of alien humanoids and a robot-looking being. Ruben also speaks of the 1975 Carlos de los Santos case in which a pilot encountered three saucer-shaped UFOs surrounding his plane. They end the conversation talking about a lesser known UFO crash over the town of Coyame in which a mid-air collision supposedly took place between a conventional plane and an unknown aircraft.

Guest Bio: Ruben Jose Uriarte graduated from Cal State University at Hayward/East Bay with a B.A. degree in Psychology and Latin American Studies. Ruben is a member of MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) as a Field Investigator, State MUFON Director for Northern California and Deputy Director of Investigations/International Affairs. Ruben has been involved with a large network of research organizations and served as a California State Coordinator for Crop Circle Phenomena Research International. He was a former research director for Beyond Boundaries, a company specializing in taking tour groups to various UFO "hotspots" around the world. Ruben currently serves as a board member for OPUS (Organization for Paranormal and Support Understanding). He as authored a number of books, co-written with Texas UFO researcher Noe Torres, about major UFO crashes and other historical cases that have occurred along the borders of the United States and Mexico.

Description:

On episode 04 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan speaks with Annie Jacobsen, author of Phenomena: The Secret History of the U.S. Government's Investigations Into Extrasensory Perception and Psychokinesis. Annie goes into great detail on how the U.S. obtained extremely bizarre nazi documents after WWII that had to do with studying psychic phenomena. These studies would then be manipulated and reformed to be researched by the U.S. Government under the direction of the C.I.A. This culminated into several decades of working with psychics and remote viewers who would spy on the Soviets during the Cold War. Annie brings us up to date on many of these covert projects and how they have evolved into a whole new cyber and mind war in today's military industrial complex. And yes... we touch on ufology. So don't fret!

Guest Bio: Annie Jacobsen is a journalist, bestselling author, and 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist. Her books, Area 51, Operation Paperclip, and The Pentagon's Brain were New York Times bestsellers and have been collectively published in many languages. OPERATION PAPERCLIP was chosen as one of the best non-fiction books of 2014 by The Boston Globe, Apple iBooks, and Publishers Weekly. THE PENTAGON’S BRAIN was a 2016 Pulitzer Prize Finalist in history and was chosen as one of the best books of the year by The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, and Amazon. Each of her books is in television development (Valhalla/AMC, Plan B/RatPac, Warner Brothers/J.J.

Micah Hanks: Toward a Better Ufology

Apr 24, 2017 01:34:18

Description:

On Episode 02 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan talks about the mysterious case of a young man that has supposedly gone missing in Brazil. Left behind in his bedroom is a conspiracy theorist's dream come true; cryptic messages, occult-like symbols, a series of self-published books completely in code and a large, hand-made statue of a 16th-century philosopher. This entire story is made all the more intriguing after learning the young man was obsessed with aliens, a hand-painted portrait left hanging on the wall showing him dressed as the late philosopher, and an alien being holding him on the shoulder. Is this story the mystery of the year? Or is it an intricate prank or performance piece set to fool the online community?

Next, we hear from Ryan's guest, noted author and radio personality, Micah Hanks. They speak about a fascinating UFO sighting that Hank's personally researched and investigated, and then they dig deep into the famous Cash/Landrum UFO case and the mysterious Frederick Valentich disappearance. They round out the conversation looking at the work of Allan Hendry, an investigator for the Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS) throughout the late 1970s, whose work alongside J. Allen Hynek resulted in his book, The UFO Handbook: A Guide to Investigating, Evaluating and Reporting UFO Sightings.

Micah Hanks is a writer, researcher, podcaster, lecturer and radio personality whose work addresses a variety of areas, including history, politics, scientific theories and unexplained phenomena. Open minded, but skeptical in his approach, his research has examined a broad variety of subjects over the years, incorporating an interest in scientific anomalies, cultural studies, psychology, sci-fi and pop culture, government secrecy, and the prospects of our technological future as a species as influenced by science. He is the author of The Ghost Rockets, as well as his 2011 release Magic, Mysticism and the Molecule: The Search for Sentient Intelligence from Other Worlds, and his in-depth podcasting instructional handbook, The Complete Guide to Maverick Podcasting. In 2012, his book The UFO Singularity explored themes that incorporated futurism and technology–both speculatively, and at times skeptically–into an analysis of UFO phenomena. He also hosts the weekly radio show, The Gralien Report. In addition, he also has a news and current events podcast, Middle Theory.

Richard Dolan: Media Bias in UFO Coverage

Apr 18, 2017 01:33:41

Description:

On the premiere episode of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, host, Ryan Sprague, introduces the listeners to the show and then speaks with historian and author, Richard Dolan, about the media and UFOs. They also discuss the possibility and forms of disclosure that may occur in a new American political era, and then they wrap things up by confronting the future of UFO studies.

Richard Dolan is the author of two volumes of history, UFOs and the National Security State, both ground-breaking works which together provide the most factually complete and accessible narrative of the UFO subject available anywhere.

After Disclosure, the first-ever analysis not only of how UFO secrecy might end, but of the all-important question: what happens next Richard’s latest work, UFOs for the 21st Century Mind, provides a fresh treatment of the entire subject. In it, he discusses the important sightings, the encounters, the politics, the cover-up, ancient aliens, the bizarre science, disclosure, and offers advice on being both critical and open-minded in today’s world. Like his previous three books, it asks fresh questions and offers new insights to further our understanding of the UFO mystery.

Richard hosts a weekly radio show, The Richard Dolan Show on KGRA Radio, is a frequent guest on Coast-to-Coast AM. He is currently featured on several television series and documentaries, including Ancient Aliens, Hangar One: The UFO Files, Close Encounters, and UFOs: The Lost Evidence.

Before that, he had studied at Alfred University and Oxford University, and had been a finalist for a Rhodes scholarship. In addition to his research, Richard’s company, Richard Dolan Press, actively publishes innovative books by authors from around the world. His website is www.richarddolanpress.com
