    Theories of ancient astronauts, that beings from other planets visited Earth in ancient times, will be discussed on an episode that'll be recorded on Wed. January 31st, from 9:30 AM until 11:30 PM Mountain time.

    Our featured guests:

    Erich von Däniken is arguably the most widely read and most-copied nonfiction author in the world. He published his first (and best-known) book, Chariots of the Gods, in 1968. The worldwide best seller was followed by 40 more books, including the recent best sellers Twilight of the Gods, History Is Wrong, Evidence of the Gods, Remnants of the Gods, and Odyssey of the Gods (all published by New Page Books). His works have been translated into 28 languages and have sold more than 65 million copies. Several have also been made into films. Von Däniken’s ideas have been the inspiration for a wide range of television series, including the History Channel’s hit Ancient Aliens. His research organization, the A.A.S.R.A./legendarytimes.com (Archaeology, Astronautics & SETI Research Association), comprises laymen and academics from all walks of life. Internationally, there are about 10,000 members. He lives in Switzerland but is an ever-present figure on the international lecture circuit, traveling more than 100,000 miles a year.

    In the 1960s, David Halperin was a teen-age UFOlogist. He grew up to become a professor of religious studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with special expertise in religious traditions of heavenly ascent and otherworldly journeys. He is the author of five books and numerous articles on Jewish mysticism and messianism, and a novel, 'Journal of a UFO Investigator,' published in 2011 by Viking Press. He's currently working on a non-fiction book on UFOs: 'Intimate Alien: The Hidden Story of the UFO.' He blogs about UFOs, religion, and other subjects dear to his heart at www.davidhalperin.net."

    Note: Erich won't be here for the full episode, but we'll keep him going as long as we can.

    This a truly fascinating episode. David and Erich went toe to toe on ancient astronaut theories, and the followup portion with David continued on what he has concluded about UFOs and other strange events. Fascinating indeed!
