One is the "event anomaly," which involves seeing physical objects, possibly spaceships. The other is the "experience anomaly," involving episodes of high strangeness that include UFO abductions, sightings of Bigfoot and ghosts and other strange encounters. The latter, he says, exist outside of our "consensus reality."

January 10, 2021

This leads to a debate about the meaning of such statements and whether these people were just being polite. Are government people being left in the dark about UFOs, what about developing critical thinking skills, and are schools teaching students to just behave in socially acceptable ways rather than learn facts?

What about possible reverse-engineering of alien technology, and is it possible that some inventions we take for granted have off-world origins? What about the fact that, when so-called alien beings appear to communicate with Earthlings, they never reveal anything in the way of advice or information that we don't already know?

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.

Gene and Randall present the second part of an interview with skeptical researcher Benjamin Radford, which began on the June 14, 2020 episode of The Paracast. The discussion continues to focus on Ben's books, emphasizing our fear of clowns as possible evil-doers, cricketers, evidence of mass hysteria, and the ever-mysterious goings on in New Mexico. Does he buy claims that the U.S. government may have been responsible for some of the early UFO and abduction-related episodes? Ben has done first-hand research into mysterious phenomena in 16 countries on four continents including psychics, ghosts and haunted houses; exorcisms, miracles, Bigfoot, stigmata, lake monsters, UFO sightings, reincarnation, and crop circles, and many other topics.

K-Town, on the black experience, the paranormal, and the worldwide turmoil that has erupted over race issues. Katina is a military veteran and the host and creator of Mysterious Radio and The X Podcast. K-Town has had a long interest in all things strange and unusual since witnessing “fire” suddenly start to blaze out of a hill at night when she was 14 years old. Always knowing that there was more going on in the unseen world, she started Mysterious Radio in 2016, and has conducted interviews on everything from UFO and alien phenomena, true crime, strange disappearances, true hauntings and more.
