He 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 RoguePlanet. Another contributor to the book, our own Curt Collins, is our guest co-host. During this episode, MJ will reveal his reasons for quitting MUFON, and the panel will discuss the impact of the Roswell case on UFO culture.

    After The Paracast: Available exclusively for Paracast+ subscribers: Gene is joined by guest co-host Curt Collins in what may be, in part, an “ain’t it awful” episode in which the duo have lots of criticize. They cover the situation over at MUFON and the conditions that caused such people as researcher MJ Banias to depart. With the 70th anniversary of the Roswell case approaching, Gene and Curt talk about the recent controversial collection of MJ-12 documents and their apparent flaws. There’s also a discussion about the fact that there are two Roswell festivals, one of which has a more responsible range of speakers that include Greg Bishop, whereas the other event mostly includes old-timers, which reminds Gene of bringing back doo-wop bands to perform their greatest hit(s) one more time.

      There are many things that fall within the field of the paranormal, and this is your place to discuss the issues that interest you. What's more, it doesn't have to be related to the paranormal. Most any subject is fair game.
