He has found that some of the Roswell claims, such as the existence of alien bodies, to be less compelling upon reinvestigation, and you'll find out why. And what about those controversial MD-12 documents? Kevin D. Randle is a retired soldier, and a prolific science fact and science fiction writer.

So was Debbie Harry, of Blondie, reincarnated from a diva of the 1920s? What about UFO disclosure, and does the fact that Hillary Clinton, who claimed an interest in UFOs, was defeated make a difference? Why do Presidents fail to make good on their promises to find answers to the UFO mystery? Does the military really know what’s going on with UFOs? The discussion moves to the possibility of conventional explanations for such early cases as the Kenneth Arnold sighting and Roswell.

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.”

The Paracast Oct 9, 2016

The Paracast Oct 2, 2016  

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."

The Paracast Sep 25, 2016  

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 traces the origins of the government's ongoing conspiracy to debunk UFO sightings in order to hide the truth about the phenomenon. 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.

The Paracast Sep 18, 2016  

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?

The Paracast Sep 11, 2016
