Episode Notes This is a talk from Dexter, Michigan I gave on July 22, 2019 about UFOs, history and, of course, the 1966 sightings in the area. It was a fun talk, with a good crowd--some of whom remembered the events themselves. If you'd like to see the slide show that went along with the talk, click here.

All the (Weekly World) News that's Fit to Print

8/21/2019
More
Episode Notes An absolute nostalgic delight, the Weekly World News entertained and...informed?...millions during its life from the late 70s into the 21st century. While you may remember Bat Boy, the WWN also--at least in in its early years, covered some fairly significant UFO stories. We'll see the progression from covering cases like Cash-Landrum and cattle mutilations to reporting that an alien had endorsed Bill Clinton for the 1992 Presidential election. We'll also look at some of the...

Two Years!

8/5/2019
More
On August 7, 2017, I began a project I wasn't sure would last two months. It's now lasted two years, give or take a day. In this episode we'll resist the urge to do a clip show, take a suggestion from a listener about how to celebrate, thank a whole lot of people, revisit a past topic. Sort of. Taunia Derenberger-Bowman's Beyond Lanulos: Our Fifty Years with Indrid Cold is on Amazon. WARNING: it's only 76 pages, so don't expect it to last your whole flight or whatever!

Encounter 60- Orfeo Angelucci’s Electric Ginger Ale Tablet Test

8/1/2019
More
UPDATE: Something is weird with the feed–trying again! While we often get requests to cover this or that topics–Orfeo Angelucci’s contact experiences and writings may be the most often requested. His two books, The Secret of the Saucers and Son of the Sun are very much part of the Adamski-inspired tradition but with some interesting twists including […]

Encounter 59- Space Brothers, Space Battles, and Yoga

7/17/2019
More
We’re continuing with a run of Contactees in this episode, where we’ll discuss George King and his Aetherius Society (which is still going strong today!). George King was an interesting guy–as were most of the Contactees–and his claims and experiences have some unique twists to them. The full BBC program in which King channeled Aetherius […]

Encounter 58 Redux: Songs of Saturn

7/8/2019

Not a new episode, but a listener pointed out that the “echo effect indicating primary source” continued onto the narration in one section of Encounter 58, so here’s a corrected version!

Encounter 58- Songs of Saturn

7/3/2019
More
WARNING! THIS EPISODE INCLUDES MILD CRINGE-INDUCING ROMANCE! Howard Menger, sometimes called the East Coast Adamski (for reasons I’ve never really understood) had one of the most unique contact stories–mostly because they involved a romance between he and Connie Weber that apparently began in a previous lifetime on another planet. Menger also released record albums of […]

Encounter 57- Live in Halifax, 2018

6/19/2019
More
Since I’m running around giving all sorts of talks in libraries (or, rather, giving the same basic talk in all sorts of libraries), I thought I’d give you a bit of a taste of what that’s like. This is my talk from Esotericon 2018 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Esotericon, produced by Paul Kimball, also featured […]

Encounter 56: Signs of the Times

6/5/2019
More
In this episode, we’re going to explore some of the earliest efforts by the American military establishment to investigate and understand UFOs. They started doing so just about as soon as Kenneth Arnold sighted the first modern UFO and they probably haven’t stopped since, you know, strange things in the sky might be concerning to […]

Encounter 55: Year of the Humanoids

5/22/2019
More
In this episode, we look at some interesting accounts from 1973: Year of the Humanoids, a report issued by the Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS). Their website is a treasure trove of information about cases you’ve heard of and cases that have slipped under the radar of most saucer fiends. You can download your own […]

Bonus Encounter 12: Stanton T. Friedman

5/14/2019

UFO legend Stanton T. Friedman has passed away at age 84. These are just some thoughts I had this evening, reflecting on his work and influence. Obituary at Coast to Coast AM, by Tim Binnall Stanton T. Friedman is Real, a short film by Friedman’s nephew, Paul Kimball.

Encounter 54: No Alternative

There’s a recent edition of Alternative 3 that had the participation of Leslie Watkins, so it’s probably as legit as you’ll get at an affordable price. It’s at Amazon, and linked above. A DVD of Alternative 3 is available, used, on Amazon. It’s also been put on Youtube. I heartily recommend Jim Keith’s Casebook on Alternative 3. There […]

Encounter 53: X Marks the Spot

4/24/2019
More
Michael X, AKA Michael X. Barton, is one of those contactees that often gets swept aside in the rush to talk about more colorful figures like Adamski, Van Tassel, and what have you. Join us today as we look upon his works and–if not despair–giggle a little. It’s good stuff and blends several different strands […]

Encounter 52: A Valiant Effort

4/9/2019
More
The “Reverend” “Doctor” Frank E. Stranges, in the 1950s and 60s, gave us one of the greatest gifts ever. Valiant Thor–a space commander who met with government officials, giving them a message of love and peace. Any similarity to The Day The Earth Stood Still is purely, I assume, coincidental. In this episode we’re going to examine […]

We’ve added a Donation button on the site at saucerlife.com. I wanted to spend a few minutes talking about what’s in it for you (actual stuff, not just nice feelings), and so on. Enjoy my extreme discomfort at doing this! And thanks so much for listening. Nothing is changing, we’re not going away. This isn’t […]

Encounter 48: Watch This, Don’t Watch That

2/15/2019

In this episode we’re looking at some of the best (and not so great) UFO documentaries out there. There will be more of these, so please hold your “WHERE WAS MIRAGE MEN?!” comments in abeyance! For Encounter 50, in a couple weeks, I’m entertaining any questions you wish to ask–submit them on Twitter, Instagram, or […]
