Show Notes: Kevin Randle, Encounter in the Desert

YouTube Live Streamed Wednesday November 8th at 8:00PM to 10:00PM EST (GMT-5)

Guest Kevin Randle discusses his new book: ENCOUNTER IN THE DESERT; The Case for Alien Contact at Socorro.

The UFO landing at Socorro has been wrapped in controversy almost from the moment that police officer Lonnie Zamora watched a craft descend and land. Zamora saw alien beings near the craft and a symbol on its side but was told that he shouldn’t mention either. Encounter in the Desert reveals—for the first time—exactly what he saw in that arroyo in 1964 and what an examination of the landing revealed to investigators. Socorro wasn’t a stand-alone case. Other sightings, some of them nearly as spectacular as Zamora’s, were reported at the time. A study of the Air Force investigation of this case reveals an effort, at first, to learn the truth that mutated into a clever attempt to hide the information from the public. http://amzn.to/2ixMzXd

The film explores an event in 1994 when sixty school children claim to have seen an unusual space craft land near their primary school in Ruwa, Zimbabwe and witnessed an incredible event that, to this day, they can hardly comprehend themselves.

Nickerson has become the foremost investigator into this unusual event. After eight years of investigative journalism, filming, and editing, the project has momentum to reach completion by the spring of 2018.

His pre-blog column, “Islands in the Clickstream,” was distributed to thousands of subscribers in sixty countries before collection as a book in 2004. When a friend at the NSA told him, “The only way you can tell the truth [that we discuss} is through fiction,” he returned to writing short stories, one result of which is “Mind Games,” a collection of nineteen stories about anomalies, infosec, professional intelligence and edgy realities. More edgy realities are illuminated in the recently published and critically extolled “UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry” to which he contributed, a 5-year research project using material from inside the military and intelligence communities to document government responses to the phenomena from WW2 to the present. It is in the collections of 65 university libraries.
Many speeches address creativity, shifts in identities, and technology-related security and intelligence issues. Richard keynoted the first two Black Hats and spoke in 2017 at Def Con for the 22nd year. He has keynoted conferences around the world and clients range from GE, Microsoft and Medtronic to the National Security Agency, the Pentagon, FBI, US Dept of the Treasury.

Show Notes 263: Mark O’Connell

YouTube Live Stream Wednesday, August 2nd at 8:00PM to 10:00PM EST

Mark has had feature film projects optioned and/or in development with Disney, DreamWorks Animation, Barcelona Films, Endless Entertainment Group and Al Ruddy Productions.

Looking for a way to explore new media markets and experiences, Mark started the UFO blog “High Strangeness” (www.highstrangenessufo.com). Taking an off-center approach to the phenomenon, High Strangeness dared to embrace the weirdness and brought a new, often comedic sensibility to the rather self-serious field of UFOlogy. He made his reality TV debut in 2015 in “Mysteries at the Monument” on The Travel Channel, discussing the ties between Devil’s Tower in Wyoming, the Steven Spielberg film Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and the UFO work of Dr. Hynek. He lives in Wisconsin with his wife, Monica, and teaches screenwriting at DePaul University in Chicago. He is available for media.

Show Notes 262: Kevin Goodman

YouTube Live Streamed Wednesday July 26th at 1:00PM to 3:00PM EST (5:00PM to 7:00PM GMT)

News with Alejandro Rojas, check out the stories at OpenMinds.tv

Alejandro Rojas with UFO Updates, guest Kevin Goodman discusses Warminster UFOs, as well as other UK UFO sightings and encounters.

Bio: Kevin Goodman was born at the dawn of the space age. In his preteen years, he began to become interested in the golden era of what has become known as “The space race.” He also began to question the accepted teachings of his catholic upbringing, regarding our origins and what he later called “Brainwashing” and enforced belief by the church that Earth contained the only life in the universe.
At the cusp of his teen years, he was exposed to the writings of Erich Von Daniken, and “Chariots of the Gods?” was the first book he read on the paranormal subject.
In the early to mid 1970s, a plethora of books, mainly reprints from the 1960s were released. Such luminaries as George Adamski, Donald Keyhoe, Brad Steiger and Brinsley Le Poer Trench, thanks to the cheaper paperback format reached a larger audience, aided by such sensationalist titles as Flying saucers are hostile, Operation Earth and Secrets of the ages fuelled Kevin’s enquiring mind.
In 1973, Kevin read The Warminster Mystery by Arthur Shuttlewood. This was to change his life forever, as he recalls: “Up until then, I had assumed that the majority of the UFO/Flying Saucer Phenomenon was mainly connected to America. Suddenly, I learnt that there was a major event that had been here, in Britain. So, I was determined to go there as soon as possible to experience what all the fuss was about…” Read more
