Ok I’m going to give this a try/final shot.
So looking in the web I see that your upcoming guest is nothing if not prolific in his output of books, articles, blog etc ..... but how truly scientific is he? And does this count as “research” in the true sense of the word?.
It seems to me possibly more like “collation” - the gathering of experiences.
There’s no doubt that there are masses of incidents of experiences (including his own) - but where is the tangible, physical evidence/proof that the phenomena is actually material?

The above is just a preamble really. So my specific questions are:
1) what is your guest’s personal belief/s with respect to the phenomenon
2) where is, in the right here and right now, the physical evidence/proof of its material existence ? (pieces of material, bodies etc).
3) what has Mufon really achieved to date? What is it’s condition/philosophy now and what is it’s future? (They’ve had some true crackpot guests on recent conventions.
4) Is “ufo-olgy” now just another branch of the entertainment business?

Opinions on any or none of these would be appreciated
Best wishes

I'll make sure these issues are covered in the show, and afterward add an opinion or two of my own and hope you're okay with that. Thanks for participating in the Question Bank!

Thanks - much appreciated. I’ll be listening as soon as the episode is posted on iTunes.
Prolific as he is, he’s a total unknown to me and I hoping to be pleasantly surprised.
