DOWNLOAD (Free Version for December 3, 2023): We feature a special UFO Roundtable, featuring cohosts Curt Collins and Tim Swartz. The list of topics includes UFO research updates, the influence of pop culture on the phenomenon, faulty memories of reported UFO crashes such as Roswell, and remembrances of the late Tim Beckley, known to some as “Mr. UFO.” Curt is the author behind Blue Blurry Lines , a website focused on the UFO mystery, as well as its legends and hoaxes. After a career in retail management Curt began writing about UFOs, with a special interest in re-investigating the paradoxical 1980 Texas Cash-Landrum case.More recently, he launched The Saucers That Time Forgot with Claude Falkstrom, focused on unearthing “tales that UFO history has overlooked, or would rather forget.” Tim is an Indiana native and Emmy-Award winning television producer/videographer. He is also the author of a number of popular books including “The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla,” “America’s Strange and Supernatural History,” and “Time Travel: Fact Not Fiction!”
Coming December 10: Gene and cohost Tim Swartz present a thought-provoking episode featuring Richard Thieme. He is an author/professional speaker who addresses challenges posed by new technologies, how to redesign ourselves to meet these challenges, and creativity in response to radical change. His speaking addresses “the human in the machine,” technology-related security and intelligence issues as they come home to our humanity. For the past 30 years, his speaking, writing and consulting has focused on security, intelligence, IT, and empowering people who live on the sharper edges of life and work. His books include: “UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry” (2013). When a senior at the NSA told him, “the only way you can tell the truth is through fiction,” he heeded his advice, and four novels and dozens of stories later, he completed his magnum opus, the Mobius Trilogy: “Mobius: A Memoir,” a novel about an intelligence professional that is receiving great reviews, “The Mobius Vector: The Long Road Home,” and the third book in the trilogy, “Mobius: Out of Time.”

Gene and cohost Tim Swartz will also talk about their encounters with psychics and psychic readings over the years. Zanotti got interested in UFOs back in the 50’s as a pre-teen. In the 1960’s he hosted a New York college radio talk show called “Coffee Klatsch,” which was devoted to the offbeat and the paranormal. After broadcast journalism studies in New York and Montreal, his calling led him to Switzerland, where he was a full-time broadcast journalist and presenter at Swiss Radio International, Switzerland’s international shortwave station. During his 32 years with SRI, Bob also produced a number of features involving the paranormal and the esoteric.
