April 21, 2024
Author Paul Schatzkin reveals more incredible details about the lives of Philo T. Farnsworth, the true inventor of television and antigravity pioneer T. Townsend Brown. He'll tell Gene and cohost Tim Swartz, for example, how Brown became interested in the flying saucer enigma in the 1940s and his ultimate connection with creating National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP). You'll learn more about Farnsworth's ongoing efforts to perfect a practical method of nuclear fusion. Schatzkin's biography of Farnsworth titled, "The Boy Who Invented Television,"and his biography about Brown is titled, "The Man Who Mastered Gravity." Taken together, these two books suggest that if advanced civilizations are gallivanting around the galaxy, then their vessels are propelled by the two technologies that Farnsworth and Brown came close to — fusion energy and gravity control — that remain tantalizingly out of reach of even 21st century humans. In addition to being a biographer of obscure 20th century scientists, Schatzkin has been described variously as a visionary, gadfly, serial entrepreneur, Internet pioneer, staunch McLuhanist, author, occasional bomb-thrower, guitarist and songwriter. He was born in New York City and raised in Springsteen Country (Monmouth County, NJ).

Dr. Lawson has alsoconducted Doctoral level research and consulting in areas of Organizational/Systems Design and improvement, and is a highly capable Public Speaker and Communicator, Mentor, Writer, Motivator and Teacher using both small and large group lectures and facilitation. Over the years, he has done extensive research into the ontology and history of super ancient Egypt and how all of its structures/temples/pyramids are part of a "Messianic/Mashiach Plan," now culminating and which will create a "new heaven and a new Earth." After personal research in Egypt, Dr Lawson developed and presented a number of PowerPoint lectures on antediluvian civilizations whose members fled after a world-wide cataclysm circa 11,000 B.C. to Egypt. This ancient, technological knowledge was used to build the pyramids and recorded this history on the Egyptian temple at Edfu.

British folklore historian Dr. Simon Young returns to discuss the supernatural, including fairy lore, with Gene and cohost Tim Swartz.

Author Linda C. Powell, news editor for The Anomalist, returns to reveal to Gene and cohost Tim Swartz more of the inside details of the life and times of a founder of the modern UFO field, as detailed in her biography, "Against the Odds: Major Donald E. Keyhoe and His Battle to End UFO Secrecy: A Biography." How did Keyhoe get fired from NICAP, the UFO group of which he was Director? What happened to NICAP after he left, and what about Keyhoe's final years as an active UFO researcher? Thanks to his highly-placed contacts in the military and secret informants in the Pentagon, Keyhoe, as a result of his reluctant acceptance of an assignment to write an article on the subject from the editor of True magazine, became the first major figure to truly challenge the official view that UFO reports belonged in the domain of “kooks and fuzzy thinkers.” He was a 51-year-old retired Marine Major, best known for his articles on aviation and his fantasy fiction novels, when his own investigation of a famous 1948 flying saucer case led him to believe that the US Air Force and the CIA knew the Earth was under surveillance by beings from other worlds and were keeping it secret from the public. For the next 21 years, he devoted himself, at great personal cost, to exposing the official cover-up of what he believed was an alien visitation. As you'll learn in this fascinating interview, Keyhoe was far from the perfect messenger delivering evidence in support of UFO reality.

March 24, 2024
Bigfoot investigator and filmmaker Greg Ogles returns to talk with Gene and cohost Tim Swartz about possible efforts by these creatures to communicate with humans. What about possible intelligent behavior displayed by orbs? And is Bigfoot dangerous? What about cases of disappearing people, or people whose bodies are badly mutilated? Greg got into investigating Bigfoot in 2013 and is the founder of the Alabama Bigfoot Society. Initially he just wanted a diversion in his life as his profession can be quite stressful. He has hunted and fished all of his life so being in the woods in remote places was not new to him. Throughout the history of mankind, we have always been curious about the unknown, making new discoveries and trekking our way into the wilderness. Greg's first thoughts were to fully document all of his encounters. As a skeptic he thought there would be little film that he would have to edit. Then one cold day in Alabama, everything changed! Greg runs Relic films, a production company that seeks out the truth about America's greatest Legends and Myths. With the use of modern technology and the study of ancient Indian cultures he attempts to uncover the hidden truth about what is real and what is just a story.

March 17, 2024

Pop culture, especially the super hero and sci-fi kind, lead the agenda as Brian Young speaks with Gene and cohost Tim Swartz. What about the origins of Superman? The character was created by two Jewish teenagers, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and debuted in 1938. In building up the history of the Man of Steel, they adapted elements from Jewish tradition and culture. And was his origin story related to that of Moses?

Emmy Award winning writer, reporter and filmmaker Lee Vander Boegh talks with Gene and cohost Tim Swartz about common memes about the shape of the flying saucers, his favorite trashy horror films and his favorite sci-fi films. So did James Cameron's 1984 hit movie, "The Terminator," predict the consequences of our AI culture? There's also talk about the sometimes unfortunate results if Hollywood buys the rights to a book. He was first introduced to the idea of Cryptids via a series of Time Life books published long before the term "cryptid" was even a thing, and still has the entire set on his bookshelf. A self professed "Paranormal Agnostic," Lee doesn't discount the possibility of such phenomena, but wants irrefutable proof before calling himself a true believer. That said, he's had his fair share of "Did you see that?" moments, including an incident with a night-time aerial light so bright it burnt up his vehicle's alternator, and a one-year residency in a house that went bump-in-the-night on an uncomfortably regular basis.

Winfield has attended and sometimes lectured at various UFO conferences over the last 32 years in both the UK and the US. He has suggested that the UFO subject is best divided into two separate parts that are not necessarily connected. Firstly there are “sky mysteries,” most of which can be explained in terms of conventional objects or else natural phenomena. Secondly there are the various claims of ET alien encounters, alien contact, and indeed alien abductions that appear to have separate explanations. His most recent book is entitled “The Rendlesham Forest UFO Mystery and Project Honey Badger.” It examines the case in considerable detail and he reveals extraordinary new evidence proving exactly what this particular “UFO” really was.
