Road to the Strange: Travel Tales of the Paranormal and Beyond shows that when you pack your bags for travel and adventure, you might get more than you expected – a side trip into a phantom world where mysterious things happen.

This collection of 44 true stories tells of travelers around the world who are suddenly faced with ghosts, paranormal phenomena, unusual synchronicities, time slips, magic, visions, past-life connections, premonitions, mystical experiences, mysterious figures, and more. Each story has an expert, insightful commentary.

Please post your QUESTIONS here. We will be taping December 21th, Thursday afternoon.

I listened to after the paracast to get your takes on the "big story" about the defence UFO program. Good to hear some more rationale voices on this after listening to some other ufo channels where they had completely gone off the deep end calling this the game changer etc.

I offer two lenses in which we could look at this:

This was only $22m, not enough to be considered of any strategic priority to the defence establishment and wouldn't but you half an F35 E.g. its obviously not enough to be the spearhead technology game changer that is feeding into secret space fleets and other ufo true believer narratives about off world technology.

It shows they (possibly) do not have any sustained and centralised effort to understand the phenomenon, if they did, why have this? (Unless as a misinformation effort)

It was not important enough a topic to use the militaries hardware as part of a centralised effort, they farmed off a small budget to bigelow. (Low likehilood / high reward type venture).

Any footage we get via elizondo is not classified therefore is not seen as defence significant e.g. how good is it going to be to inform us on the phenemona ?

The narrative that the U.S. military is not investigating UFOs is over, they will need a new excuse in the future

Lots of new leads for ufologists and disclosure proponents to chase up...

Exotic materials and bigelow storing them... this could be a handy piece of string to unravel

What is in the Elizondo footage, what do the military identify this to be?

What did the program find, where are the reports?

Is there still an ongoing effort? Someone is lying out of Elizondo and the DoD

Chance to press for a statement from the existing administration on the UFO topic and go on the record about whether a program is currently in place in any part of the defence structure or contractor there of

So yeah, overall it's cautious optimism but at the very least it seems to have put a big gust of wind into the UFO fields sales for 2018 which is better than not
