Martin Willis, Host and Blogs
The subject of UFOs has fascinated Martin since his youth, yet he was on the fence about the subject. He experienced a sighting in 2006 in Carmel Valley, CA, that solidified his beliefs that UFOs really do exist. Since this time, Martin has paid attention to what others have to say about the phenomenon with an open mind. Pondering what UFOs may be, or if they are possibly extraterrestrial helped spark his interest to another level. In the last number of years, Martin has become interested in astronomy and always maintained a strong scientific fascination of our vast universe. Martin feels certain that we are not alone and thinks it is possible that some small part of our government knows that and keeps it from us. As a seasoned podcast host, and armchair UFOlogist, he created Podcast UFO. Martin’s mission is to provide a place where anyone could interact and be heard who had a UFO experience or insight on the subject. Martin is an artist as well as a longtime antique & fine art appraiser. His varied interests are in arts, nature, scuba diving, humor, travel and our mysterious cosmos.
Michael Lauck is a freelance writer and producer. He became interested in UFOs at an early age because of 1970s television programs such as Project UFO and In Search Of…. He has seen an unidentified flying object, but describes his sighting as “relatively unspectacular,” reporting that both the stealth bomber and White Knight launch vehicle were more interesting. In his spare time he trains in Chinese martial arts, does pen and ink illustrations and, according to his wife, watches too many kung fu and zombie films.
Mark Stublarec has had a passing interest in paranormal and alternative subjects for pretty much all of his life. However, he got especially interested when looking into the evidence for an afterlife. This sparked a greater level of interest in all things alternative, and also a greater understanding of as well as dislike for how the pseudoskeptic movement and other forces try to actively harm research into alternative phenomena. Stublarec has also occasionally participated on message boards dedicated to alternative subjects, where he has learned more about various alternative communities and their interaction with pseudoskeptics. He has become frustrated with the lack of willingness of most within these communities to want to fight harder against the pseudoskeptic movement. After listening to the first Leslie Kean interview on Podcast UFO, Stublarec applied for and came on board to transcribe the podcasts. Mark has transcribed all of the podcasts since then adding pertinent links, as well as transcribing some older ones. In addition, he has, recently, started to blog, on podcastufo.com, about UFOs, pseudoskeptics, and other related subjects.
