Robert Powell, MUFON's Top 10 UFO Cases of 2014

Podcast cover
Read more
Robert Powell is the Director of Research for the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), and the head of MUFON's Scientific Review Board (SRB). For the past several years, the SRB has been putting together a top 10 list that they release at the MUFON Symposiums every summer. The 2014 list just came out a few weeks ago at the 2015 MUFON Symposium in September. Although months have passed, Powell explains that the board needs that time to be sure the investigation of each case in 2014 is completed, and to have time for the SRN to review and do their own analysis.

In this interview we go over how the top 10 list is created, and review some of the top cases.

Richard Dolan, Alien Abduction, Area 51, MUFON, and Breakaway Civilizations

Podcast cover
Read more
Author Richard Dolan has often been referred to as a UFO historian, but he is also a researcher, lecturer, TV personality and one of the most interesting, and sometimes controversial, participants in what is often called Ufology. In this interview, I catch up with Richard at Travis Walton's Skyfire Summit in Heber/Overgaard, AZ. We discuss Walton's case, Bob Lazar's upcoming appearance at the UFO Congress, controversy that is beginning to develop online about Dolan's concept of a "Breakaway Civilization," and Richard and I debate who is the puppet master behind the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), or if one even exists. Controversy, speculation, and thoughtful analysis abound in this latest episode of Open Minds UFO Radio.

Noe Torres and Ruben Uriarte: Aliens in the Forest

Podcast cover
Read more
We will be taliing to Noe Torres and Ruden Uriarte about their new book: Aliens in the Forest: The Cisco Grove UFO Encounter. This stranger-than-fiction event took place in the ruggedly scenic foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in the Tahoe National Forest. Into this remote wilderness stepped the 26-year-old Shrum, who planned to enjoy a relaxing weekend hunting deer with his bow and arrows. As he entered the forest, joking and laughing with his two hunting buddies, little did Shrum suspect that shortly he would be locked in the midst of a terrifying 12-hour struggle with alien forces. Armed only with his wits and one of mankind's most primitive weapons, Shrum expended every ounce of his strength in an all-night battle against invaders that seemed bent on overtaking him and carrying him away to a fate worse than death. We will also play clips from the witness himself.

Podcast cover

Jack Weiner along with his twin brother, Jim, and his friends Chuck Foltz and Charles Rak believe they were abducted during a kayaking trip in Maine in 1976. They had an incredible UFO encounter, and when some of them began having nightmares, they underwent regression therapy, separately. Their accounts of what happened during their UFO encounter in 1976, which they had not remembered consciously, were remarkably similar.

Last week we aired an interview with Jim Weiner. This week we interview his brother, Jack, to get his perspective. Medical issues have prevented Jack from being able to travel with his brother to participate in lectures on their experiences. That makes this a rare interview with one of the key figures of the Allagash Abductions.

Paul Dean is an Australian who has been uncovering U.S. military secrets via the Freedom of Information Act. Although the U.S. government claims they have not been investigating UFOs since the close of the U.S. Air Force's official UFO study, Project Blue Book, government records show otherwise. What has been difficult to track is who is collecting these reports and where are they going?

Even during the Project Blue Book years, the USAF claimed the reports demonstrating a threat to national security where going elsewhere. In Australia, along with a colleague in the U.K., Dean has been following the thread to find out where the files are going and what organizations are receiving these files.

Nick Pope, UK UFO Hacker Gary McKinnon

Podcast cover

Nick Pope and I will be discussing the incredible case of UFO Hacker Gary McKinnon. This extraordinary case has erupted into an international relations event that has been discussed publicly by President Obama and Prime Minster Cameron, and has strained relations between these two powerful allies. We will ask Nick how badly this case has damaged relations between the two countries, what UFO secrets have been revealed and what more if any may be forthcoming.
Author, journalist and TV personality Nick Pope used to run the British Government's UFO project at the Ministry of Defence. Initially skeptical, his research and investigation into the UFO phenomenon and access to classified government files on the subject soon convinced him that the phenomenon raised important defence and national security issues, especially when the witnesses were military pilots, or where UFOs were tracked on radar.

Podcast cover

Dr. Claude Swanson is a theoretical physicist who earned his degrees at MIT and Princeton. For many years he worked at high tech labs for large corporations and on US Defense projects. However, Dr. Swanson now focuses his efforts on the science of unconventional physics, such as those that relate to the UFO phenomena. He believes that there is a subtle energy some cultures have known about for many years, such as “chi” in China or “torsion” in Russia, which may be the key to understanding UFO [propulsion, telepathy, healing and out of body experiences. He believes that when this energy is present, the laws of physics that the western world is familiar with are modified. He has written two books on the subject, and lectures throughout the country, including presenting at the Society for Scientific Exploration, of which he is a full member.

Martell's research has been featured worldwide on numerous television and radio networks such as The Discovery Channel, Syfy Channel, and the BBC. He is currently a regular guest on the show "Ancient Aliens" on the History Channel. His latest book "Knowledge Apocalypse" is available on Amazon.com.

Martell garnered worldwide attention by recreating a working model of one of science's most profound mysteries - the "Baghdad Battery". Residing in the national museum of Iraq, the discovery of this 2,000 year old device suggests the modern day battery was not invented in 1800 by Count Alassandro Volt, but was in use two millennia earlier. Martell's recreation was instrumental in proving the Baghdad Battery was capable of generating current.

Their first film, Extraordinary: The Stan Romanek Story, covered the story of a man who claims to have been abducted by aliens.

This is the topic of J3Films’ second project, Extraordinary: The Seeding. 

In this interview, we talk to the filmmakers about what inspired them to do the film and tackle such controversial and strange topics, and their feelings about the credibility of the witnesses in their movie.
