LR067 - Fluxliner: Alien Reproduction Vehicle w/ Jeff Bugbee

Back in 1988, a friend of technical illustrator Mark McCandlish claimed to have witnessed a secret exhibit of 3 crafts displaying anti-gravity capabilities. Based on his experience & other witness recollections, McCandlish drew up the now infamous drawing of the Alien Reproduction Vehicle (ARV), also known as the Fluxliner. Jeff Bugbee & I discuss the origins of where these crafts may have come from & the methods & means McCandlish explored to come up with such a precise diagram of what is...


LR066 - The Somerton Man w/ Raven Riot

A mysterious, well dressed man ends up dead on an Australian beach in 1948 & to this very day no one knows who he is or exactly how he died.

LR065 - Project Serpo w/ The Old Man

Did the Roswell crash provide the US Military with access to a live alien known as EBE #1 who lived for a few years after but before he passed he put us in touch with his home planet of Serpo & that resulted in an eventual meet & greet/exchange program in the early 60's & also probably influenced the whole "Close Encounters Of the 3rd Kind" thing?!?!

LR064 - Murderous Magic w/ Nick Parks

This week Nick Parks from heavy heartthrobs, GAYTHEIST, joins me to discuss magic. Some left hand path, some right hand path...but we mainly focus on how an individual can get so wrapped up in their own journey that they lose sight of reality. Adolfo De Jesus Constanzo was a magical serial killer that had ties to & high stakes in Mexican drug cartels. It's an unreal & violent story that ends the only way it could end...with lots of violence. GAYTHEIST: facebook:...


LR063 - Dead On LSD w/ JPX

In the early days of LSD experimentation, there were quite a few deaths in the scene & a lot of rumors surrounding those deaths.

POST RHETORIC (i forgot they deleted all the episodes, so you can't...


LR062 - Coral Castle w/ Johnny Brooke

Edward Leedskalnin, we've determined, was probably not a good guy. He had some sketchy personal ideals (which he wrote about) and by today's standards he was a love spurned pedophile obsessing psychotically over losing the chance to marry a child 10 years his junior. He took all of his bitterness, moved from Latvia to the USA & eventually built a modern marvel of a shrine to his "sweet sixteen". He plainly says he built it by himself just because he knew what he was doing. This could very...
