Superstar Ufologist Richard Dolan returns to the program for an in-depth discussion on his long-awaited study of UFO history from 1973 to 1991, UFOs and the National Security State, Vol. II. Marking his first full-length BoA:Audio interview since 2006, we explore his amazing new book from a stunning array of angles including the evolution of UFO studies from 73 to 91, how crash retrieval and abduction research proved to be a revolution for the field, the APRO v. NICAP v. MUFON feud that was an undercurrent to the era, how plausible the “government-made UFO” concept holds up when looking at the known research of the time frame, the concept of a “breakaway civilization” formed by those “in the know” about UFOs, the controversial Bill Cooper and Richard’s decision to include his “contributions” to Ufology in the book, the perceived “taint” of the Doty-era of UFO studies, the mind-blowing testimony of the all-too-unknown Dr. Eric Walker, and tons and tons more.
This jam packed conversation is a feast of information and insight for any serious student of the UFO phenomenon.
Powerhouse investigator of the connection between rock music and the esoteric, R. Gary Patterson makes his long-awaited debut on BoA:Audio. We’ll be covering the occult influences on Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones, the “mind controlled rock star” meme, backwards tracks found in music (both intentionally and imagined), the “Paul is Dead” conspiracy theory, the mysterious deaths of Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, and Jim Morrison, and a ton of other fascinating connections between pop culture and the paranormal.
It’s a wildly entertaining edition of the program which will surely serve as one of our signature interviews for Season V as R. Gary Patterson comes to BoA:Audio.
