    DOWNLOAD (Free Version): Gene and Randall welcome UFO researcher Richard Hoffman for a return visit. As of this interview, Rich has been following the topic for well over 50 decades. He is a member of NARCAP, the Planetary Society, and works among a group of academics and scientists with the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies (SCU). In his working life, he is an Enterprise Architect working at Redstone Arsenal and the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. One of Rich’s projects is the investigation of mysterious balls of lights that appear in Alabama. In this interview, we talk to Rich about this light phenomenon, its history, and Rich’s ongoing investigation into UFOs. He also talks about the Pentagon’s UFO task force, and what the government might know about the phenomenon.

    Coming September 20: Gene and Randall present a return visit from John B. Alexander, Ph.D. This wide-ranging discussion covers topics that range from the History Channel’s “Project Blue Book” TV show, that was very loosely based on the life of Dr. J. Allen Hynek, to the Pentagon’s UAP Task Force, the Roswell legend, the book “The Day After Roswell” by Philip J. Corso and William J. Birnes, cosmic consciousness, the afterlife and even reincarnation. Dr. Alexander is a retired senior Army officer with nearly half a century experience in special operations, intelligence, and research and development. He is author of many articles, monographs and books, including, “UFOS: Myths, Conspiracies, and Realities” and “Reality Denied: Firsthand Experiences with Things that Can’t Happen – But Did.”

    After The Paracast: Available exclusively to Paracast+ subscribers on September 20: Curt Collins joins Gene and Randall for an extended discussion that includes: The History Channel’s “Project Blue Book” TV show and its flaws, Dr. John B. Alexander’s wide-ranging interests that cover such topics as UFOs and include life after death. The trio also looks at the U.S. government’s recent efforts to examine UAP sightings. Curtis runs Blue Blurry Lines , a website focused on the UFO mysteries, as well as its legends and hoaxes. He also runs The Saucers That Time Forgot with Claude Falkstrom, focused on unearthing “tales that UFO history has overlooked or would rather forget.” A recent example is an article on how legends of flying saucers were used in the late 1940s and also the 1950s as a gimmick to sell stuff to children.

General Freewheeling Chit-Chat

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.

Youth and UFOs

Why is it that teenagers no longer seem to get involved in looking for UFOs, as we did when we were young? Your ideas are welcomed, and we'd like to also hear from those under 21, if they're listening.
