Luis Cayetano (“Ufology” is corrupt) kindly conducted a wide-ranging, freewheeling chat with me about UFOs, ufology, and the UFO mythology, among many, many other things.
Cayetano’s questions, prompts, and curtness allowed me free reign to opine and reflect on topics usually passed over or still to be addressed here at the Skunkworks. This format sometimes saw (heard?) my verbal energies outrun my reflective faculties, but I’m grateful to Luis for the opportunity to explore the field in this way. I may not have been my most eloquent or pithy at all points, but I was, at least, I think, coherent.
Because of technological limitations, viewers/listeners will be treated not to two hours of looking at us yack but to a montage-commentary, often funny and wittily commenting on what’s being said. Thanks to Cayetano for going through the trouble.
You can see the interview, here.
I had the glad opportunity to have a lively back and forth with Rob McConnell on “The ‘X’-Zone” Radio Show. We worked over UFO reality, UFO religions, UFO conspiracies, and you can even hear an energetic reading of the poem “Flying Saucers” at the end!
Hear it, here or here
Rob McConnell has been kind enough to invite me to speak with him on “The ‘X’ Zone”.
We’ll be riding my ufological hobby horses on “The ‘X’ Zone” radio show Monday 8 April 20h00-21h00 EST, and again on “The ‘X’ Zone” TV Show Tuesday 9 April 11h00 EST. That, at least, is the plan.
Once the shows are recorded and uploaded, I’ll link them here at Skunkworks.
Now, where can a man get a set of digital earphones like Orson’s sporting?…
I had the honour and pleasure to be a guest on Kevin Randle’s podcast “A Different Perspective”.
We discussed all the things wrong with History’s Project Blue Book, the uncanny parallels between the Phantom Airship flap of 1896/7 and the post-1947 modern era, all that’s spontaneously literary about the history of UFOs, and the enduring, “hard kernel” of the mystery.
You can hear it all here.
I meet up with M J Banias at Café Obscura to talk about the dark side of the UFO, the way the myth dovetails into racism, nationalism, conspiracism, and right wing politics (!).
Catch it live Thursday 31 January 9:00 p.m. EST, or later on Banias’ YouTube site.
A post consolidating my initial thoughts on the matter in light of our conversation will appear here, soon after.
