Gene and guest co-host Randall Murphy present a return visit from Walter Bosley. He's an author, blogger, former AFOSI agent and a former FBI counterintelligence specialist. He has researched mass shootings, breakaway civilizations, lost civilizations and more. On this episode, Walter will discuss one of his books, "Shimmering Light: Lost In An MKULTRA House of Anu."

Walter will also cover some of the mysteries of Antarctica.

There's rarely a time when there's not a recent book from Nick Redfern to talk about. As much as we want to avoid bringing up Roswell, Nick has reopened the subject in a big way with "The Roswell UFO Conspiracy: Exposing a Shocking And Sinister Secret." It's the long-awaited sequel to one of his previous thought-provoking volumes, "Body Snatchers in the Desert: The Horrible Truth at the Heart of the Roswell Story" In short, Nick says that the reports of wrecked flying saucers and dead aliens in Roswell were actually cover stories to hide "the far more disturbing picture of what really happened…" It's a fascinating journey into what may have occurred in the years after World War II, and how the truth has been buried all these years.

The Paracast May 7, 2017  

We've asked the question: Where are the young paranormal researchers, the next generation of people to take over after our generation passes on? Then we heard from Colin Schneider, a 16-year-old cryptozoologist from Ohio, who appears in a live Internet radio show as "The Crypto-Kid." Colin says," I have researched extensively include folklore of dwarves around the world; connections between fairy lore and cryptids; cryptid attacks of livestock; and Ohio Dogman reports." After you listen to this brilliant young man on this fascinating episode, you'll feel reassured that these fields of study are in good hands.

Gene and Chris present veteran anomalist Allen Greenfield. He is a published author on Masonic rites, UFOs, esoteric spirituality and psychic phenomena. Having done considerable field research and lab work in all of these areas he subscribes to the "Many Worlds" interpretation of Quantum Theory, and thinks that the explanation for phenomena as diverse as ghosts, Near Death Experiences, spontaneous cases of the reincarnation type, men in black, shadow people, cryptids etc. is in the overlap among so called "branes" (that's b-r-a-n-e-s) or alternate worlds impinging upon our consciousness, a concept he has advocated since the late 1960s. Gene and Allen have been close friends for well over five decades.

The Paracast Apr 23, 2017  

With guest go-host Goggs Mackay, The Paracast returns to the traditional Ufology and UFO sighting mold with Bob Spearing, a MUFON field investigator who has investigated over 500 cases. He is part of MUFON' s elite special assignment team and is their International Director for Spain and India. Robert is frequently published in the MUFON Journal and other publications, has spoken at UFO conventions, and maintains the website World UFO Watch. An expert on orange orbs, Robert will trace the history of this incredible phenomenon and whether it exhibits evidence of intelligence. He'll also talk about what he calls "nuts and bolts UFOs."

The Paracast Apr 16, 2017  

Gene and Chris present long-time researcher Stan Gordon, who tells us that he had a busy 2016 investigating sightings of UFOs, Bigfoot and Crypids in Pennsylvania. Says Stan: "Since I began researching and documenting such oddities from across Pennsylvania in 1959 as a curious ten year old boy, many thousands of mysterious incidents have continued to be reported, and such cases occur annually." He maintains that, "UFO sightings and other strange encounters reported each year that can’t be so easily dismissed," and you'll hear about some of the most compelling anomalous reports during this episode.

The Paracast Apr 9, 2017  

Author and radio host Paul Eno returns to The Paracast to talk about his "unified field theory" for paranormal events. Is it possible that UFOs, ghosts, Bigfoot and other phenomena are all part of our multiverse? How does this view compare with the traditional view of space visitors, missing links and life after death? Paul — and his son Ben — are co-hosts of the Behind the Paranormal radio show. They are also co-authors of a book based on their radio show studies, also called "Behind the Paranormal: Everything You Know is Wrong." Is it? Paul will ask some thought-provoking questions about the paranormal that cry out for logical solutions.

The Paracast Apr 2, 2017  

In the early days of the UFO field, such characters as George Adamski, Daniel W. Fry, Truman Bethurum, George Van Tassel and others gained some measure of fame — or infamy — when they claimed to be in regular contact with beings from other planets. UFO researcher and amateur paleontologist Ray Stanford, and his twin brother Rex, were there to observe these people in action; the good, the bad, and the ugly. Ray will tell you how Adamski and Fry faked their UFO photos and movies to help spread their wacky tales of ET contact. You’ll learn, also, about a possible case of genuine contact with someone from “out there.” As he tells us, there’s “a lot to share.”

The Paracast Mar 26, 2017  

Gene and Chris present yet another subject we haven't explored with John L. Steadman, author of "H.P. Lovecraft & the Black Magical Tradition," which explores "the real black magickal organizations that use Lovecraft's fictional constructs as a basis for their magickal workings; I argue that such constructs can be used in this manner and that the Lovecraftian entities are just as ontologically 'real' as traditional gods, goddesses and demons." John L. Steadman is a scholar of H. P. Lovecraft and western occultism and has been a magickal practitioner for more than thirty years. He is currently a college English professor at Olivet College in Michigan. And, yes, he has had paranormal encounters over the years.

Others who I referred to her have had similar positive psycho-spiritual outcomes (i.e., kundalini awakening, ascension, etc.)." During this episode, Dr. Batchelor will be asked to demonstrate her healing abilities on Gene.

The Paracast Mar 12, 2017  

With her book, "Surviving Death: A Journalist Investigates Evidence for an Afterlife," journalist Leslie Kean takes her interest in the paranormal to a totally new direction. Here's what Leslie says about what spurred her new quest: “While exploring the evidence for an afterlife, I witnessed some unbelievable things that are not supposed to be possible in our material world. Yet they were unavoidably and undeniably real. Despite my initial doubt, I came to realize that there are still aspects of Nature which are neither understood or accepted, even though their reality has profound implications for understanding the true breadth of the human psyche and its possible continuity after death.” Before writing about UFOs and the afterlife, Leslie worked as a freelance writer and radio producer for a number of major media outlets. Erica Lukes is guest co-host.

Gene and guest-co host Goggs Mackay interview Robert Schroeder, author of "Solving the UFO Enigma: How Modern Physics is Revealing the Technology of UFOs." So if UFOs are real an extraterrestrial, just how do they perform amazing stunts of maneuverability? What can we learn about advancing our own understanding of physics and possible propulsion systems for future spacecraft? It's going to be a fascinating journey to the frontiers of science. According to Robert: "I retired a few years ago from Hewlett-Packard after 26 years in operations and product management…I've done talks at Phoenix MUFON 2015; MUFON Symposium 2015, Irvine, Calif.; International UFO Congress 2014, Phoenix, Arizona, etc."

The Paracast Feb 12, 2017  

Researcher Micah Hanks, of The Gralien Report, returns to discuss strange objects in orbit around the Earth that were being seen during the golden age of Ufology. Researcher Donald E. Keyhoe believed some of these were “alien motherships”; Micah will look at how the discoverer of Pluto became involved in determining what these objects were, as well as the peculiar search for Earth’s second moon, and the continuing search for “moonlets” today. Over the years, mystery objects in Earth orbit have helped promote the belief in what is known as “The Black Knight Satellite,” a hypothetical alien probe that has monitored Earth for 13,000 years. Micah explains the scientific discoveries behind this modern legend, which have built onto a mythos over the years.
