Dogman Island  

This week on Expanded Perspectives the guys talk with a man simply known as "Dark Waters" about his sighting, his channel and some truly disturbing encounters people have sent to him over the years. The Dark Waters Channel is the place to find real true horror stories. This channel was born out of his own paranormal experience he had when he was 12 years old. Since then he has been fascinated with things that go bump in the night. You will find that he has creepy stories from all over the world.

Vile Vortices  

On this weeks episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off talking about how there was apparently a wave of some very strange sightings of what appeared to be Pterodactyls over the English countryside back in 1982-1983. Then, from mid-September onward, solar panels will be mandatory for new homes in South Miami, Florida. The law — which was passed with a four-to-one majority — states that builders must install 16 m² (175 ft²) of solar panel per 93 m² (1000 ft²) of sunlit roof area, or one panel with a 2.75 kilowatt capacity per 93 m² (1000 ft²) of living space; the rule also extends to some renovations. Then, Steven Petrow over at the Washington Posts recently wrote an article about his dying mother seeing ghosts or spirits of dead relatives. Apparently this is very frequent and common among those about to transition to the other side. Then, new research finds that people who think they are less active than others in a similar age bracket die younger than those who believe they are more active—even if their actual activity levels are similar. After the break Cam brings up Vile Vortices. By definition, the Vile Vortices would be miserable whirlers but actually they are twelve vertex points of a planetary grid (see Figure 1) originally plotted by Ivan T. Sanderson, a naturalist and paranormal investigator. Sanderson first coined the term, “Vile Vortices”1 in his article “The Twelve Devil’s Graveyards Around the World” (Saga magazine, 1972). The best-known Vile Vortices are the Bermuda Triangle, the Dragon’s Triangle (Devil's Sea), and the South Atlantic Anomaly. However, each of these twelve geographic areas is credited with instances of magnetic anomalies and other unexplained phenomena.

A Chance Encounter  

On this weeks episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off talking about how a 20 year old woman in Michigan came across a truly horrifying beast while driving. The creature she described looked like it had the body of a man and the head of a dog. Then, in 2016, experts uncovered 13 footprints which they believe date back more than 3.6 million years. The enigmatic footprints were discovered in modern-day Tanzania and were preserved for millions of years thanks to a region which was at that time covered with wet volcanic ash. Then, one evening back in 2013 near Des Plaines, Illinois a woman and her son saw what appeared to be a gargoyle. Then, a woman has a run in with everyone's favorite cryptic "Sasquatch" while out fishing with her family. After the break the sightings just keep piling up as Kyle tells some strange encounters with the little people. Throughout the world, people from all over claim to have run into fairies, elves, trolls and gnomes. What are these strange beings and why do only a small few of us actually see them?

Sunken Spirits  

On this episode of Expanded Perspectives the guys start the show off talking about how as the world population continues to rise and open space becomes more scarce, water might become the next human frontier, in the form of a floating city. Dutch researchers have a model for such livable space, which could include homes, farms and parks. The news agency says the floating city concept could become a reality within a couple of decades for the Netherlands. Then, a law enforcement officer on recently submitted footage of what he calls an unidentified creature. The officer, who chose to remain anonymous,said that he was driving his car south of Lordsburgh, New Mexico,  when his cellphone camera captured the incident this week. Then, a woman writes into the show to talk about a scary encounter she had one night while staying over at a friends house. Then, another police officer sees the Mothman in Chicago. After the break Cam brings up some very unusual ghost or spirit sightings from people while they are S.C.U.B.A. diving. All of this and much more on this weeks installment of Expanded Perspectives!

Attacks From Above  

This week on Expanded Perspectives the guys start the show out talking about how if you step into a taxi in south London later this year and you might not have to think about paying a tip. The UK’s first fully public trial of autonomous vehicles will soon be under way. For four weeks, a fleet of driverless shuttles will each ferry up to five passengers and a “safety warden” along a 2-kilometre route in Greenwich. Previous trials there and in the town of Milton Keynes required participants to register in advance. This time the vehicles will pick up anyone wanting a ride. The four-stop route will connect a hotel close to the O2 Arena concert venue with the Millennium Village housing development. En route, the shuttles will also call at a river-bus stop and a cable car terminal. Then, University of Washington researchers have invented a cellphone that requires no batteries—a major leap forward in moving beyond chargers, cords and dying phones. Instead, the phone harvests the few microwatts of power it requires from either ambient radio signals or light. Then, a resident of the Weikert, PA area a friend were on a designated hiking trail in the Bald Eagle State Park when they heard something walking to their right in the woods as if following them. It turned out to not be a bear. What it was, was far more frightening. Then, in a tiny, remote Aboriginal community in outback Australia, an American linguist discovered that a new language emerged among the young people in the community and is now spoken by around 350 individuals, all under the age of 35. But how was this new language spawned when they were already perfectly able to communicate with each other without it? After the break Kyle brings up some incredible encounters with multiple UFOs during the Vietnam War. Some even attacked both American and NVA soldiers.

The Beast of Florida  

On this episode of Expanded Perspectives the guys start the show off talking about how a district chief in Amnat Charoen province on Wednesday clarified his request for police protection for a village haunted by a "ghost". According to Thai folklore, once "phee pob" inhabits a human body, the person becomes ravenous for raw food - including the organs of live animals. Then, Lon Strickler over at Phantoms and Monsters recently posted an encounter with what has become known as The Grinning Man. Then, the actor Rob Lowe will soon debut a TV series on A&E called “The Lowe Files” in which he and his two adult sons go in search of the paranormal. And, he claims that in some cases, they actually found it. Lowe told Entertainment Weekly that he had an “incredible encounter” with a creature known as the wood ape, or the Ozark version of Sasquatch or Bigfoot. Then, new research into the behavior of these big cats indicates that they don't like encountering humans any more than we like bumping into them on hiking trails. The findings are particularly valuable as human development encroaches on lion habitat and drives up the number of human-puma encounters. After the break Cam brings up some unusual encounters with Bigfoot in the great state of Florida. Often referred to as The Skunk Ape. Florida's type of Sasquatch seems very smelly as well as elusive.

Mysteries in the Desert  

On this weeks episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off talking about how a new design concept that aims to combine the luxury of a hotel room with a high-speed rail system could make traveling between U.S. cities faster and far more comfortable. Then, Archaeologists excavating a site in Eastern Ethiopia have found evidence of a mythical “city of giants” which was a thriving center of commerce between the 10th and 15th centuries. Then, on June 7, the couple found a canoe on the river bank in Belcher believed to have been carved from a tree by members of the Caddo tribe more than 900 years ago. After the break Kyle brings up some unusual sightings that have taken place in some of the world's deserts. Including giant snakes, phantom stagecoaches and a desert form of Sasquatch. All of this and more on this weeks installment of Expanded Perspectives!

The Roswell UFO Conspiracy with Nick Redfern  

On this episode of Expanded Perspectives the guys start the show off talking about a large upright walking Coyote and Hyena both seen in different parts of the world and at different times. Then, Dating back 11,000 years - with a coded message left by ancient man from the Mesolithic Age - the Shigir Idol is almost three times as old as the Egyptian pyramids. New scientific findings suggest that images and hieroglyphics on the wooden statue were carved with the jaw of a beaver, its teeth intact. Then, A Georgia witness at TyTy reported watching a group of military jets that appeared to be escorting a red-orange sphere at about 600 feet in altitude. After the break the guys chat with friend and author Nick Redfern about his new book "The Roswell UFO Conspiracy". n early July 1947, something crashed outside of Roswell, New Mexico. It was not an alien spaceship, as so many believe. Rather, it was one of a handful of definitively military vehicles that were secretl test-flown in various parts of the Land of Enchantment. All of the flights ended in disaster, and particularly so for the people who were on-board the craft. Coverstories concerning wrecked flying saucers and dead aliens were carefully created. The stories were then spread by those tasked with hiding the dark truth. The far more disturbing picture of what really happened near Roswell was cloaked for years. In fact, for decades. Until now…All of this and more on this weeks episode of Expanded Perspectives!

Missing Hunters  

This week on Expanded Perspectives the guys start the show off talking about how an ancient, rectangular copper mask recently found in the southern Andes in Argentina is about 3,000 years old — one of the oldest human-made metal object from South America — and its discovery challenges the accepted idea that South American metalworking originated in Peru, according to archaeologists. Then, hitting the snooze button at weekends to make up for early starts during the week may be doing more harm than good. Social jetlag – which occurs when your work and social commitments conflict with your innate desire to sleep at certain times – may increase your risk of heart disease. Then, recently a cattleman found one of his cows dead and showing signs of a mysterious mutilation. The animal displayed unusual incisions and some parts of the body were missing. The event caused amazement among the residents of Colonia Los Sauces, Department of Concordia. The cows displayed perfect, cauterized incisions on their heads and bodies, with their tongue and salivary glands extracted along with udders, rectum, part of the large intestine and reproductive tract. Then, a very strange couple was recently spotted in Las Vegas. The witness believes that they were in fact human looking Aliens.  After the break, Cam brings up some very disturbing accounts of missing hunters. These hunters were well versed in the outdoors and experienced in the art of bushcraft and survival. It seems unexplainable that they would disappear under mysterious circumstances.

The Berwyn Mountain Incident  

This week on Expanded Perspectives the guys start the show off talking about how Elon Musk says that Universal Basic Income — or an economic idea where everyone gets a paycheck from the government to spend how they wish — is one of the only solutions to the rise of robotic automation. Then, Stratolaunch -- which is designed to release rockets that will carry satellites into space -- has a 385-foot wingspan, features six engines used by the Boeing 747, stands 50 feet tall and can carry more than 500,000 pounds of payload. Then, a man from Oregon claims his grandmother’s house was damaged by a “Bigfoot”. Then, a man describes what could only be the flying humanoid from the movie "Jeepers Creepers" in the Bronx back in 2011.  After the break Kyle brings up Britain's Roswell simply known as "The Berwyn Mountain Incident". On January 23, 1974, people reported hearing a huge bang, felt earth tremors and saw a brilliant light in the sky above the Berwyn Mountains. Families in the villages of Llandderfel and Llandrillo were settling down to watch TV when an explosion was heard and the ground shook. It measured 3.5 on the Richter scale. As people ran from their homes fearing another tremor, they saw a blaze of light on the mountainside. A nurse who believed an aircraft had crashed drove to the site and saw a pulsating orange and red glow on the hillside and other lights. Police converged on the area and emergency services were put on standby. Although searches were undertaken, officially nothing was found – leading to claims of a cover-up. In the four decades since there has been a huge debate as to what exactly happened that night, with TV documentaries made and books written on the subject. Some researchers have claimed a UFO crashed, with further claims “bodies” were retrieved and taken away by soldiers. Other theories suggest it was a meteor shower combined with an earthquake – the epicentre of which was at Bala Lake – and the misperception of poachers on the hillside carrying lamps.

A Black Flash  

On this weeks episode of Expanded Perspectives the guys start the show off talking about how bee populations around the world have been in decline for years due to a number of reasons that make it extremely difficult to fix the problem. Urban development, insecticides, fungicides, illness, climate change, and many other factors have been determined to be responsible for the decline in bee populations. This week, the nonprofit Bee Informed Partnership and the Apiary Inspectors of America published their annual survey of 4,963 beekeepers in the United States and it seems that we still have a problem. But it was a slightly better year for our vital pollinating friends. Then, millions of Americans say they engage in extreme binge drinking — or downing at least eight to 10 drinks containing alcohol on a single occasion — and the behavior appears to be on the rise in the U.S., according to a new report. The findings are concerning because this high level of drinking is linked with health and safety risks, including an increased risk of injury or even death, according to the researchers, from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA). The study "reveals that a large number of people in the United States drink at very high levels and underscores the dangers associated with such 'extreme' binge drinking," George F. Koob, director of the NIAAA, said in a statement. The researchers analyzed information from more than 36,000 Americans ages 18 and older who completed a survey about their alcohol consumption in 2012 to 2013. The researchers asked the participants to report the maximum number of alcoholic drinks they consumed on a single day in the past year. Binge drinking was defined as consuming four or more drinks on a single occasion (for women), or five or more drinks on a single occasion (for men), while extreme binge drinking was defined as consuming double those amounts, or more. Then, for years, scientists have debated whether heavy inland snowfall on the vast East Antarctic Ice Sheet — Earth’s largest — balances out the rapid melting in West Antarctica. Given enough snowfall, the continent might not yet be contributing to sea level rise. Most research shows the melt rate is so high that the continent is indeed losing ice. But in 2015, a group of NASA scientists published a controversial study that found Antarctica was instead gaining ice. The NASA team combined space- and land-based measurements and found so much snow dropping in East Antarctica that even with drastic melting elsewhere, the continent was adding some 80 billion tons of ice annually. It contradicted prominent previous findings — including reports from the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The result drew global headlines and excited climate change skeptics. That’s despite warnings from the study’s lead author, NASA Goddard’s chief cryospheric scientist Jay Zwally, who predicted that melting would outpace increased snowfall in a decade or two. Then, An Arizona witness traveling by train through Apache County reported watching and photographing six hovering, “two-story” objects beaming light to the ground level. After the break Cam brings up the incredible tale of "The Black Flash". Shadowy figures have long haunted the pages of history. From ghosts to goblins to things less mentionable, the human psyche has a habit of inventing monsters to inhabit the dark reaches of the unknown. Several such figures have been chronicled: the Halifax Slasher, the London Monster, and Spring-Heeled Jack, to name a few. Today, we’ll be adding another cloaked and hooded terror to the rogue’s gallery, this one known by a name straight out of a comic book: the Black Flash.

Show Notes: A Third of America's Bee Colonies Died Last Year and That's Good News Extreme Binge Drinking Is On the Rise in the US Is Antarctica Gaining or Losing Ice?

The Rendlesham Forest Incident  

On this weeks episode of Expanded Perspectives the guys start the show off talking about how a couple and some friends traveled to Atlantic City, New Jersey for some fun but only had a strange encounter with a Black Eyed Kid. Then, it’s no surprise that the Tyrannosaurus rex had a mighty bite, but just how powerful were its gigantic chompers? A study published Wednesday suggests that the terrifying carnivore crushed its prey with a jaw-dropping 7,800 pounds of force — more than double what any living species can deliver. Then, a Wisconsin witness at Sawyer County reported watching “three stacked orbs” hovering at a nearby tree line for 45 minutes. Then, unusual precipitation doesn’t just belong in myth and legend, and it’s more common than you might think. After the break Kyle brings up one of the most famous UFO sightings of all time simply known as "The Rendlesham Forest Incident". Dubbed “Britain’s Roswell”, the Rendlesham Forest incident, which took place over a series of nights in December 1980, continues to fascinate UFO enthusiasts and conspiracy theorists. As the years have passed, the facts have become increasingly hazy, as statements change and new witnesses come forward. But what we do know for sure is that, in the early hours of December 26 1980, US military personnel (sections of the US Air Force were temporarily stationed at RAF bases in Woodbridge and Bentwaters) spotted strange lights above Rendlesham Forest.

Mothman, Dogman and More with Lon Strickler  

On this weeks episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off talking about how it might be wise to look away now if you are eating or have a weak stomach, but scientists have discovered that ingesting bogers is good for teeth, and overall health. Scientists at a number of universities including Harvard and the University of Saskatchewan and say parents should not discourage their children from picking their noses because they contain 'a rich reservoir of good bacteria.' Eating snot can also prevent bacteria from sticking to teeth, according to the article published in the journal of the American Society for Microbiology. The findings even suggest snot could defend against respiratory infections, stomach ulcers and even HIV. Then, A Canadian witness at Edson reported a glowing object following her vehicle just 20 feet overhead.  Then, this summer, darkness will fall across the face of America. The birds will stop singing, the temperatures will drop and the stars will become visible in the daytime sky. In about 100 days, a total solar eclipse will sweep across the continental United States for the first time since 1918. Astronomers are calling it the Great American Eclipse. For the amateur sky-watcher, a total eclipse presents a rare opportunity to witness a cosmic hiccup in our day-night cycle. For solar astronomers, however, the eclipse offers something else: three minutes (give or take) to collect as much data as possible about the sun’s usually hidden outer atmosphere. Then, the host of the Italian paranormal Youtube channel, The Theory of Truth, spoke of his strange creature encounter in the summer of 2011. After the break Cam and Kyle speak with Lon Strickler about many of the recent Mothman sightings near the city of Chicago. Lon began the 'Phantoms and Monsters' blog in 2005, which has steadily grown in popularity and read daily by tens of thousands of paranormal enthusiasts, investigators and those seeking the truth! His research and reports have been featured on hundreds of online media sources. Several of these published reports have been presented on various television segments, including The History Channel's 'Ancient Aliens', Syfy's 'Paranormal Witness' and 'Faked or Faked: Paranormal Files', & Destination America's 'Monsters and Mysteries in America.' As well, he has been interviewed on several radio broadcasts, including multiple guest appearances on 'Coast to Coast AM' and 'Darkness Radio.' He was also featured on Destination America's 'Monsters and Mysteries in America' television show for 'The Sykesville Monster' episode. 'Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research', in conjunction with the 'UFO Research Center of Pennsylvania,' 'Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society,' 'Crypto Four Corners International' and 'Astral Perceptions Universal', investigates all facets of the paranormal and the supernatural...be it terrestrial or non-terrestrial phenomena.

Then, an Ohio witness at Sagamore Hills Township reported driving toward an unknown light and discovered a hovering sphere just above the tree line Then, Brent Swancer over at Mysterious Universe posted an article recently describing some possible encounters with the deadly Djinn during the Iraq war. Then, a person in Illinois had a very strange episode of missing time while driving on evening.

The Devil’s in the Details  

On this episode of Expanded Perspectives the guys start the show off talking about how when Uber first announced its crazy-sounding plan to explore “on-demand urban aviation”— essentially a network of flying taxis that could be hailed via a smartphone app and flown from rooftop to rooftop — the company made it clear that it never intended to go it alone. Recently it kicked off a three-day Elevate conference in Dallas, Texas, the ride-hail company announced a slew of partnerships with cities, aviation manufacturers, real estate, and electric charging companies, in its effort to bring its dream of flying cars a little closer to reality. Then, a Pennsylvania witness at Lancaster County reported watching a nearly 100-foot-long, triangle-shaped object hovering at the tree top level. The witness was driving along back roads between 8 and 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 22, 2017, when the incident began. Then, a woman in claims she witnessed a “Bigfoot” in Gaston County, North Carolina. 47-year-old woman Tracy Hibberts told Cryptozoology News she was at a restaurant near a wooded area when she spotted the hominid. Then, this strange story comes from the Nigerian website naij.com and is allegedly confirmed by Sikah Bersah, a member of the National Service personnel in the Volta region of Ghana. He said that residents of the Ketu South Municipality of the Volta region had reported that their pigs, cows, chickens and other livestock were being mysteriously killed by something that eats the intestines and internal organs and leaves the rest of the carcass. Sounds like a wild dog or a scavenging animal … except witnesses claimed it was a human that changed into a pig and chased them before disappearing. After the break Kyle brings up some disturbing cases of demonic possession, including a murderer who tried to get off claiming the devil made him do it. Therefore, he is not liable.

Unusual Encounters #1  

On this episode of Expanded Perspectives the guys start the show off talking about how it looks like something out of “Star Wars” or “Terminator”: an actual robot capable of walking and shooting guns with both hands. It’s called FEDOR (stands for Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research) and it can now fire guns with both hands. Terrifying, right? Well, Dmitry Rogozin, Russia’s deputy prime minister and the deputy head of the country’s military-industrial commission, insisted on Twitter that the project is about artificial intelligence and not creating a Terminator. Then, as it turns out, some of the best cooks in the world think lion fish, a venomous predatory fish which is breeding out of control and destroying marine ecosystems in the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, is delicious. The chefs gathered in Bermuda on Wednesday for a competition dubbed the "Lionfish Throwdown" where they challenged one another to come up with the tastiest solution to the problem of invasive lion fish. A man named Colin Angle, who recently founded Robots In Service of the Environment (RSE), a nonprofit organization set up to protect the oceans, built a machine named the Guardian specifically designed to hunt and capture lionfish. Then, Lon Strickler over at Phantoms and Monsters recently posted a very strange and unusual sighting! Then, The Loch Ness Monster has been 'declared missing' by its official recorder admitting he is 'worried' that there has been no sightings of her for eight months. After the break Kyle and Cam report on some listener stories originally submitted for the show titled Unusual Encounters. All this an more on this weeks installment of Expanded Perspectives!

Up In Smoke  

On this episode of Expanded Perspectives the guys start the show off talking about how traditional 9am lectures should be scrapped and students should be allowed to start their day later, experts have claimed, following new research that suggests early mornings interfere with young adults’ body clocks. According to researchers at The Open University, lectures should start no earlier than 11am for students to be able to perform at their best. Working with researchers at the University of Nevada, experts analysed the study patterns of 200 students and found academic performance was at its best between 11am and 9.30pm. Then, a woman called into Coast to Coast recently a told a fantastic story her father told her about a strange possible Men In Black experience he had one time back in 1954 while out camping. Then, Lon Strickler over at Phantoms and Monsters posted an interesting story collected by Albert Rosales about a Black Eyed Being that followed them home. Then, an 8-year-old Ohio boy wanted a cheeseburger and he wanted it bad. So, he got behind the wheel of his dad’s van and took matters into his own hands. One problem was he didn’t know how to drive, but it didn’t take him long to figure it out. The boy said it was simple: He just watched some YouTube videos on how to drive a car. Before long, they said he chauffeured his kid sister effortlessly to the McDonald’s half a mile from his East Palestine home while his parents were sleeping. After the break Kyle brings up one of the most bizarre missing people cases in American history. The case simply known as the Sodder Family  Murders. On Christmas Eve, 1945, the Sodder family home burned down. The cause was traced to defective wiring despite the fact that Christmas tree lights were still on after the fire started. The oldest two sons and daughter and the youngest daughter survived, but the five middle children were missing and no trace of their remains were found. Believing that the fire was a cover for the abduction of their children, George and Jennie Sodder spent a fortune on detectives to investigate.  The case was never solved and to this day no one knows what happened to the missing children.

A Road Less Taken  

On this weeks installment of Expanded Perspectives the guys start the show off talking about how an Earth-sized planet orbiting a dim star 39 light years away has a hazy atmosphere that could indicate the presence of a “water world”. It is one of the first times astronomers have been able to detect an atmosphere surrounding a small rocky planet. Then, a man in Texas released footage on Sunday containing an unidentified flying object. The anonymous man says he was driving to his local grocery store in San Antonio last Wednesday at about 8:30 p.m. when he noticed the anomaly. Then, a futuristic video has emerged of a man flying on a hoverboard across the Atlantic Ocean. The video shows Franky Zapata, chief executive of Zapata Racing, whizzing over the sea off the coast of France on a hoverboard that is available for the public to hire. Mr Zapata is riding the record-breaking Flyboard Air, which has previously hit the headlines for travelling at more than 34mph. He managed to travel 50 metres above the surface of the Atlantic for just under seven minutes in the most recent flight. Then, scientists are crooning over new pictures that confirm the survival of the New Guinea highland wild dog, which until now was feared to be extinct in its natural habitat on the South Pacific island. Thought to be among the rarest species of canine, the highland wild dogs are either the same as or close relatives of the famous singing dogs of New Guinea, which exist only in captivity. More than a hundred camera-trap pictures taken in 2016 show at least 15 wild individuals, including males, females, and pups. Though they are most commonly a golden color, some of the dogs are cream, ginger, roan, or black, with different markings and patternings. After the break Cam brings up some very strange sightings along empty highways of what could only be described as Phantom Hitchhikers. Thanks for listening to Expanded Perspectives!

Frederick Valentich  

On this weeks installment of Expanded Perspectives the guys start the show off talking about how a mysterious half-naked 'tribesman' was seen running down a dirt track in Indonesia by a group of bikers. The small man was spotted near Banda Aceh, on the northern tip of the island of Sumatra. Some viewers guessed the man could be a member of the mythical Mante tribe, who are said to be forest dwellers. Then, Lon Stricker over at Phantoms & Monsters recently reported on a very unusual sighting a woman had in Cabell County in West Virginia. According to the witness, this winged creature resembled a giant 4 foot tall Wasp with glowing orange eyes! Then, one of Japan’s biggest tech companies, Rakuten, announced it was forming a joint venture with the American startup AirMap. The goal is to develop a robust traffic management system for unmanned aerial vehicles, allowing large numbers of drones to operate autonomously in the same airspace. After the break Kyle brings up one of Australia's most famous Alien Abduction cases "The Mysterious Disappearance of Frederick Valentich". On the evening of October 21, 1978, a 20-year-old Australian pilot flew a familiar route from Melbourne airport to King Island. From all reports, it wasn’t a difficult one. But for the young Frederick Valentich, whatever happened while flying over the Bass Strait proved fatal. He never came home, and his body was never recovered. Was it an Alien Abduction or simply pilot error? This and much, much more on this weeks episode of Expanded Perspectives! Show Notes: Is this a member of Indonesia's lost pygmy tribe?
