November 22, 2020
Paranormal researcher and lecturer Morgan Knudsen continues the discussion that began on the November 22, 2020 episode of The Paracast.

Bassett is the executive director of Paradigm Research Group (PRG) founded in 1996 to end what he regards as a government imposed embargo on the truth behind extraterrestrial related phenomena.

November 8, 2020
For Part II of an interview that began on the November 8, 2020 episode, author Nick Redfern expands the discussion of his book, “The Martians” to cover the so-called “unified field theory” of the paranormal, in which such phenomena as UFOs, ghosts, Bigfoot and other strange events are in some way interconnected. The discussion also covers the U.S. government’s ongoing interests in the paranormal, and the possibilities of reverse engineering alleged alien technology, such as the unverified claims made in the 1997 book, “The Day After Roswell,” written by Army Colonel Philip J. Corso and William J. Birnes. Is there any advanced technology at all that may have been funneled to private industry to somehow take apart and exploit?

November 1, 2020
Physicist and UFO investigator Dr. Bruce Maccabee continues the discussions that began on the November 1, 2020 episode of The Paracast.

Investigative UFO researcher Samuel J. Maranto continues the discussion that started on the October 18 , 2020 episode of The Paracast.

Sam paints a detailed picture of the case, which involved a disc-shaped craft that was seen to shoot through the clouds at high speed, leaving a clear blue hole in the cloud layer. He also explains why theories that the UFO was itself an unusual cloud formation simply don't apply, and also covers some potential explanations to the UFO mystery with Gene and Randall.

May 10, 2020
So it is another one of “those” episodes, where Gene and Randall wonder aloud just what might have gone wrong when author/channeler Dianne Tessman appeared on The Paracast on May 10, 2020 to talk about her time-travel book, “Future Humans and UFOs.” Your humble hosts speculate about the potential consequences of time travel and why a book author might be disappointed when they are asked less-than-softball questions about their theories and beliefs.

Do the edicts about staying at home, wearing face masks, and "social distancing," staying six feet apart, present a potential threat to personal freedoms? Don muses about political outcomes before returning to the UFO field and whether proof of their reality might be handed off to private industry to shield that evidence from Freedom of Information Act requests and other attempts to discover the truth. And where is the next generation of investigators willing to put in the hard research to follow through on the evidence?

March 15, 2020
For a change, Gene and Randall play catch up, talking about current events and issues and possibilities in the UFO field. Topics include the possibility that some UFO sightings are actually psyops staged by governments, dealing with major unexpected events, citing the coronavirus as an example, and relating it to how we'd deal with extraterrestrials staging a public landing at one or more locations around the world. What about the danger of ET accidentally bringing an unknown, virulent virus with them? The discussion also includes a sci-fi movie, "Arrival," in 2016, which deals with finding ways to communicate with alien visitors.

March 8, 2020

February 16, 2020
Author/screenwriter/producer Bryce Zabel returns to continue a discussion that started on the February 16 episode of The Paracast.

This week, Special Correspondent William Puckett focuses on two notable cases among the sighting reports he has received. The “sighting of the week” occurred in Frackville, PA on June 29, 2019 and involved a hovering dark metallic object. William also talks about a possible abduction episode from Stout, OH, dating back to 1998, where a couple was taken aboard a UFO and given the “usual” physical examination. Ghost hunter Jill Foote-Shelley, from St. Croix Paranormal, continues the discussion that began on the December 28, 2019 episode of The Paracast. She tells about ghosts in such places as an infirmary, a “castle house,” a ship, and a dance studio.

In another extended segment, Special Correspondent William Puckett discusses another quartet of UFO cases.

William also joins Gene and Randall in discussions about whether the Roswell crash of 1947 might have involved a Skyhook balloon, and some observations about the case of Captain Thomas F. Mantell, who died on January 7, 1948 as the result of a crash that occurred after he attempted to pursue a UFO — or was it just a balloon!

Gene and Randall present an extended segment with Special Correspondent William Puckett, who discusses another quartet of UFO cases. They include: Yet another UFO, this time a vertical bar of light, observed in a ring doorbell video. This one occurred on November 24, 2019 in Portland, OH, a report of a triangular multicolored light observed in Dallas, OR on November 21, 2019, very bright lights moving northeast in a straight line in Boulder, CO on November 25, 2019, and reports of 20 to 30 starlike objects moving northeast in a straight line in Lakefield, Ontario, Canada. The last two appear to be among a surge of UFO sightings reported in the wake of the launch of SpaceX Starlink communication satellites that began in May of 2019. These satellites, in low orbit, are expected to begin to provide broadband Internet beginning in 2020. Astronomers are concerned that they will disrupt ground and space observations.
