Fans of 70s and 80s rock might recall the name Gary Lachman, or his stage name, Gary Valentine, who was a founding member of Blondie, but left the band before it hit the big time. Since leaving show business, Gary has become "the author of more than a dozen books on the meeting ground between consciousness, culture, and the western inner tradition." His latest work is entitled, "Beyond the Robot: The Life and Work of Colin Wilson," about someone regarded as "one of the most underrated and defiant scholars of the 20th century." Gary will also offer some insights into his musical career, New York's rock scene in the late 1970s, and the interest of rock musicians in mystic subjects.

Fortean researcher Joshua Cutchin returns to The Paracast to discuss his latest book, "The Brimestone Deceit." In Greg Bishop's review of the book, he says, "The Brimstone Deceit can rightly be called an instant classic because it articulates a refreshingly original approach to the paranormal and more importantly, how witnesses interpret their experiences. Joshua Cutchin carefully builds his case with fascinating, startling, and entertaining accounts from throughout history to show us that when it comes to UFOs, Bigfoot, and other High Strangeness, the nose may really know what has been knocking at our doors for millennia.”

Gene and Chris present Ardy Sixkiller Clarke, everyone's favorite compiler of Sky People/Star People Native American tales. Her latest book, More Encounters with Star People: Urban American Indians Tell Their Stories, takes us from the Reservations out into the world-at-large for more entertaining tales of contact and intrigue. "[It] details the UFO stories of American Indians who live off the reservation. One intriguing difference between the two groups: There were more cases of physical evidence presented to back up the testimony of urban American Indians. As with her first book, this volume not only recounts their encounters, but the recounting itself becomes part of the story. [Dr. Clarke] is a professor emeritus at Montana State University and reveals herself as part UFO investigator, part journalist, part therapist, and part friend."

Gene and Chris welcome veteran UFO researchers Stanton T. Friedman and Kathleen Marden, author of "Fact, Fiction and Flying Saucers," which is subtitled, "The Truth Behind the Misinformation, Distortion, and Derision by Debunkers, Government Agencies, and Conspiracy Conmen."

The book focuses on three of the most famous — or infamous — debunkers, astronomer Dr. Howard Menzel, aviation journalist Philip Klass, and Dr. Edward Condon, a nuclear physicist, and how they attempted to obscure the truth with casual dismissals of some of the most significant evidence.

Gene and Chris talk shop with forum moderator Goggs Mackay along for the ride. Chris wonders why all the data from a decade’s worth of San Luis Valley research that he’s submitted to MUFON and NIDS (National Institute for Discovery Science) has not received an acknowledgement — or a thank you. He discusses some of the amazing phenomena he's investigated, cases that have yet to become part of the UFO lexicon. And what about disclosure advocates such as Stephen Bassett? Can we ever really understand the true source behind UFOs? Could we even wrap our heads around or do we have language to describe what it's really all about? What about communicating with aliens that do not look or think in a way that even resembles what we humans understand?

Gene and Chris are visited by Marc Dantonio, the chief photo and video analyst for the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON). In this episode, Marc wears his astronomer hat as he talks at length about the ongoing discovery of exoplanets, which orbit other star systems. As we continue to uncover evidence that some of these planets may be Earth-like, does that increase the possibility that life exists there? Would it be life as we know it? Can such discoveries lead us to finding proof that intelligent races are visiting Earth? Marc also explores the potential that humans may some day perfect some sort of warp drive, for faster-than-light travel across space. And what about across dimensions, through wormholes? Does that lead us to the potential for a stargate? You'll also hear Marc describe his own paranormal encounters, and his views on UFO photos and videos.

It's shop talk time once again, as Gene and Chris take extra time to catch up on a host of subjects, including how to treat guests with wacky viewpoints, whether Chris is, of late, more accepting of a possible extraterrestrial solution to cattle mutilations, music and beliefs in UFOs, and strange sounds from time and space. Or from somewhere. We even include a few samples with which to assault your eyes. The discussion also focuses on upcoming guests, and there is, yes there are, a few moments of politically-related chatter and a response to people who prefer we not talk politics. After focusing on the harmful effects of trust funds on some of the rich and famous, Gene mentions his pal, the late Jim Moseley, and how he might have saved more of his fortune had he left well enough alone.

The Paracast July 10, 2016  

Gene and Chris take a long and hard look at U.S. Presidents, and what they might know about UFOs, with author Grant Cameron. His new book, “The Clinton UFO Storybook; ET Politics in the White House,” is certainly a perfect title for today’s highly charged political environment. What about the promises made by Bill and Hillary Clinton to get to the bottom of the UFO mystery? How did their close aide, John Pedesta, influence their decision to look into the subject? Podesta has a long interest in UFOs, having written the foreward to Leslie Kean’s best-seller, “UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record.” Cameron will also explore possible whistle blowers, and the prospects that we’ll see UFO disclosure in our lifetimes.

Prolific paranormal author and commentator Dr. Joseph P. Farrell returns to The Paracast for a breakaway civilization roundtable.

Author and former AFOSI agent and former FBI counterintelligence specialist Walter Bosley will join us as a member of the panel.

Gene and Chris present a return visit from Col. John Alexander. As a cutting-edge theorist on UFOs and paranormal phenomena in general, his views stretch the boundaries of research." His 2011 book, "UFOs: Myths, Conspiracies and Realities" featured a foreword from Dr. Jacques Vallee and a commentary from the late Tom Clancy. What a juxtaposition, and you'll learn something about Clancy and his attitude towards UFOs. In addition to theorizing about our paranormal universe, "for the past six decades Dr. Alexander has been directly or indirectly involved in national security affairs. He wrote the seminal articles on non-lethal weapons and has authored studies on a wide variety of complex issues." All in all, expect a wide-ranging discussion of the most important issues of the day.
