Rank #1: The Incredible Story of Bob Lazar

Podcast cover
Read more

On episode 38 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan gives a detailed overview of the Bob Lazar story. 

Bob Lazar claims to have worked on reverse engineering extraterrestrial technology at a site called S-4, near the Area 51 test facility, and that the UFOs use gravity wave propulsion. When he broke the story to KLAS news, all hell broke loose, and we now know of Area 51 primarily because of Bob Lazar. 

With audio documentation from Lazar himself, and featuring investigative news reporter, George Knapp, we hear all about how the story came to be. We also hear criticisms of the story from UFO researcher, Stanton Friedman. We wrap things up hearing about recent developments discovered by investigative filmmaker, Jeremy Corbell. This episode navigates the crazy maze that is Bob Lazar and his incredible story of flying saucers and the facility that may have possibly reverse-engineered them. 

Audio clips provided by George Knapp and KLAS News. Additional audio provided by Jeremy Corbell and Open Minds Production LLC.

Closing Song, "BobLazar" provided by Arthur Unknown.

Rank #2: Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers with Jeremy Corbell

Podcast cover
Read more

On episode 84 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan welcomes back Jeremy Corbell to the show to talk about his latest film, Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers.

Bob Lazar remains the singular most famous and controversial name in the world of UFOs. The reason you know about Area 51 is because Lazar came forward and told you about it. His disclosures have turned his life upside-down and he has tried to stay out of the spotlight. For this reason, he has never let any filmmaker into the private world of his daily life - that is - until now. Corbell’s film explores Lazar’s claims through the decades - providing rare and never before revealed footage - guaranteed to alter the landscape of the debate. And today, we cover some of the biggest controversies surrounding the Lazar mythos and Corbell's approach to covering this story, over thirty years in the making.

The film will premiere in Los Angeles on December 3rd at the Ace Theater. CLICK HERE for tickets.

The film will release worldwide on all streaming platforms. To pre-order with hours of bonus footage, CLICK HERE

Guest Bio: Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell is an Investigative filmmaker. He has been deep in the trenches documenting extra-ordinary individuals and their belief systems. This research has taken him into the worlds of nanotechnology, advanced aerospace exploration, and exotic propulsion systems. Corbell has documented the surgical removal of alleged off-world alien implants, and with access to NASA and a contingency of dedicated scientists, he has filmed the analysis of anomalous materials alleged to be physical evidence of extraterrestrial nanotechnology from UFO landing sites. Corbell has obtained death-bed confessions from former CIA and government intelligence officials, who claim to expose the truth about the UFO reality and the worldwide coverup of the ultimate truth. He has deeply investigated the Bob Lazar UFO case, and all the individuals associated with his claims, and has broken elements of the story that have sparked vigorous public debate. Corbell’s film work reveals how ideas, held by credible individuals, can alter the way we experience the world and force us to reconsider the fabric of our own beliefs.

Rank #3: TRAVIS: The True Story of Travis Walton

Podcast cover
Read more

On episode 56 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan first speaks with Greg Bishop about the 2018 Esotericon that they will be speaking at on May 19th and 20th in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The event is completely free to the public. To learn more and to attend, use the contact tab at: www.winterlightproductions.com

Then Ryan sits down face-to-face with Jennifer Stein and Peter Robbins, co-producers of the award-winning documentary, Travis: The True Story of Travis Walton

Driving home after a day of clearing brush in the forest, six lumberjacks come upon a 40-foot disk hovering silently over the crest of a ridge. As if spellbound, Travis Walton jumps from the passenger side of the truck, running towards it for a closer look. That decision on November 5th, 1975, would change him forever. The 21-year-old logger from Snowflake, Arizona was struck by a powerful blue beam of light from the craft. He disappeared for five days, igniting a firestorm of controversy aimed at the logging crew who were the last to see him. Travis Walton’s 1975 experience comes alive as he recounts the ordeal.

TRAVIS combines new and archived interviews with the logging crew, police and the polygraph examiner. Walton explains how this event changed his life forever, as the media, skeptics and debunkers attacked him, his friends and family. UFO experts explain why this story continues to astound investigators, astrophysicists and journalists as they investigate for reliable evidence of other worlds, other beings, and more advanced technologies.

Rank #5: Incident in Lake County: A Found Footage Conspiracy

Podcast cover
Read more

On episode 55 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we welcome filmmaker, Dean Alioto to the show.

Dean Alioto is the creator of the mysterious and enigmatic UPN TV special Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County (aka The McPherson Tape). For two decades, Alioto’s TV special has generated conspiracies worldwide and has been studied by top experts in the field of UFOs and alien abductions. Alioto runs us through the trials and tribulations of creating the TV special and the reaction to it upon airing. In addition, Alioto also talks about the original video that the controversial TV special was based on. Known simply as, UFO Abduction, this video brought the house down at the 1993 International UFO Congress Convention with its shocking footage of a family being abducted by aliens.

Alioto and Ryan then dig deep into why so many people refuse to believe these two films were created instead of "found". Then Alioto runs us through a few of his favorite UFO cases. This is a jam-packed interview with the filmmaker who arguably created the entire "Found Footage" genre, almost ten years prior to The Blair Witch Project.

Guest Bio: Dean Alioto studied film at both University of Southern California and San Francisco State University. Alioto’s theatrical film debut, Crashing Eden, won several national and international awards. The dark satire was praised by Variety, singling out Alioto’s writing and his ability to work with actors. Alioto’s second film, L.A. Dicks, told the story of two Los Angeles detectives who pitch their real-life cases to Hollywood. The film went on to receive the Spirit Award at the Toronto International RebelFest Film Festival. In addition to filmmaking, Alioto is a drummer and enjoys playing with his fellow musicians in the band, Uncle Bob and The Wonderland Express.

Rank #10: The Extraordinary Life and Strange Death of James Forrestal - Part 1

Podcast cover
Read more

On episode 41 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan is joined by author and researcher, Peter Robbins. Robbins is currently developing a lecture about the first Secretary of Defense, James Forrestal. This will be PART 1 of a two-part series. 

On May 22nd, 1949, Forrestal fell to his death from the sixteenth-floor window of Bethesda Naval Hospital, where he was treated for “depression”. An official U.S. Navy Medical Review Board convened on his death, after examining all doctors and witnesses who were in the vicinity. They could not establish the reason for Forrestal's fall. The peculiar circumstances of Forrestal's death, and the U.S. government's withholding of the complete report of the review board until 2004 has led to much speculation and controversy.

What many are not aware of is that Forrestal has also been connected to the controversial MJ-12 group, an alleged secret committee of scientists, military leaders, and government officials, formed in 1947 by an executive order by then U.S. President, Harry Truman, to facilitate recovery and investigation of alien spacecraft. Before his departure as Secretary of Defense, Forrestal had a mental breakdown, which ultimately led to his untimely death. What did he know? What was he told? And what exactly happened to him in the hospital as he plunged downward into tragedy and questionable history?

Guest Bio: Peter Robbins is an investigative writer, author, and lecturer, best known for his books, columns, articles, radio commentaries, interviews and conference talks. He has appeared as a guest on and been a consultant to numerous television programs and documentaries. Peter was born in Queens, New York and studied art, design, and theater at the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut. He received his BFA (painting, film history) from New York City’s School of Visual Arts (SVA) where he also taught painting for a dozen years. In the mid-1980s, he became seriously involved in UFO research when his knowledge of classified data indicated to him the US government was not telling the public the truth about UFOs.

Rank #11: Tell My Story: June Crain, the Air Force & UFOs

Podcast cover
Read more

On episode 81 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we return to UFOs in full force with an explosive interview with military veteran, retired police detective, and current UFO investigator, James Clarkson. After lecturing about government secrecy pertaining to UFOs, an elderly woman approached him and told him that she agreed that the government wasn't sharing with the public all they knew about UFOs. Upon asking her how she knew, Clarkson was intrigued by her answer; "Because I worked there..."

This is the June Crain story, placed into the context of the history of the UFO phenomenon since WWII. This is a strong indictment of the last official word from the Air Force on Roswell. Tell My Story explains why Roswell and UFOs, in general, are anything but "case closed." Clarkson runs us through some of the more compelling aspects of both June Crain's life and her handling of possible materials from the Roswell UFO incident.

We also get the inside scoop on why Clarkson quit MUFON and recently rejoined, and his personal thoughts on To the Stars Academy and the future of UFO research.

Guest Bio: James Clarkson is a career investigator with over 30 years’ experience in criminal investigation and in the mysterious world of UFOs. He brings these skills and a no-nonsense approach to bear on the mystery of UFOs. He has lectured extensively throughout Washington State, at symposiums across the country and in Paris. He also served as State Director for MUFON and continues to investigate UFOs up until today. He is the interviewer and author of TELL MY STORY – June Crain, the Air Force & UFOs.

Rank #12: Hunt for the Skinwalker

Podcast cover
Read more

On episode 73 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Jeremy Corbell returns to the show to discuss his latest film, Hunt for the Skinwalker.

Based on the best-selling book by George Knapp & Dr. Colm Kelleher, Hunt for the Skinwalker is an intimate and unnerving portrait of the events surrounding the most extensive scientific study of a paranormal hotspot in human history.

This Utah ranch includes sightings of orbs, UFOs, animal mutilations, unknown creatures, poltergeist-type activity, and many other inexplicable incidents. An exhaustive, multidisciplinary scientific study began in 1996, spearheaded by an enigmatic Las Vegas billionaire. A team of PhD-level investigators was deployed to collect evidence and spent more than a decade on the ground, interviewing witnesses, searching for explanations, and directly confronting an unknown intelligence. Recent headlines have revealed that a second, government-funded but confidential study was initiated by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). This second investigation was designed to determine if the phenomena at the ranch might have national security implications or could point to technological breakthroughs.

The shroud of mystery hanging above Skinwalker Ranch and the Uintah Basin has fascinated director Jeremy Corbell for years. He finally journeyed to the property to interview eyewitnesses including the new owner of the ranch and uncover rare, previously unreleased recordings. We discuss all of this and some very interesting connections between the Secret Pentagon UFO Program (AATIP) and Skinwalker Ranch.

Guest Bio: Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell is an investigative filmmaker based in Los Angeles California. Corbell documents the ExtraOrdinary claims of credible individuals. This research has taken him into the worlds of nanotechnology, aerospace exploration, exotic propulsion systems and an in-depth examination/documentation of ufology and phenomenology. Corbell’s film work reveals how ideas, held by credible individuals, can alter the way we experience reality and force us to reconsider the fabric of our own beliefs.

Rank #13: Brian Bethel: Black Eyed Kid Phenomenon

Podcast cover
Read more

On episode 29 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan speaks with Brian Bethel, arguably the first ever witness to come across the Black-Eyed Kids (BEKs) phenomenon. In 1996, Bethel was parked in a desolate parking lot when two young boys began to knock on his window, begging and pleading for a ride home. What happened next would completely terrify Bethel and change the rest of his life.

Since this first account of these mysterious black-eyed children, thousands of stories have permeated through both word-of-mouth and online lore, sparking a phenomenon that has grown in both mystery and debate.

Rank #15: Kiss the Sky: The Abduction of Linda Napolitano

Podcast cover
Read more

On episode 66 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan shares the incredible story of the Brooklyn Bridge UFO abduction. In New York City, on November 30th, 1989, Linda Napolitano was seen emerging from an apartment building window twelve stories above the ground accompanied by three small alien figures. Suspended within a blue beam of light, Linda and her captors were lifted into a large reddish-orange glowing UFO, which then moved off in the direction of the Brooklyn Bridge. Noted abduction researcher, Budd Hopkin, conducted an exhaustive investigation of the case. Several witnesses, including a world political leader, saw - and later independently corroborated - this event. It is the evidence of numerous and influential eyewitnesses to this abduction that shatters all previous patterns of UFO encounters.

The highly dramatic and controversial accounts of Linda and the witnesses have left both the believers and skeptics debating the Brooklyn Bridge abduction up until today. To further the debate, Ryan invites Peter Robbins to the show. Robbins is a UFO researcher, author, and former assistant to Budd Hopkins. Robbins runs us through his personal experiences with both Hopkins and Linda, and sheds light on this dark and disturbing case like never before.

Guest Bio: Peter Robbins is an investigative writer, author, and lecturer, best known for his books, columns, articles, radio commentaries, interviews and conference talks. He has appeared as a guest on and been a consultant to numerous television programs and documentaries. Peter was born in Queens, New York and studied art, design, and theater at the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut. He received his BFA (painting, film history) from New York City’s School of Visual Arts (SVA) where he also taught painting for a dozen years. In the mid-1980s, he became seriously involved in UFO research when his knowledge of classified data indicated to him the US government was not telling the public the truth about UFOs.

Rank #16: The Ashland Abduction

Podcast cover
Read more

On episode 107 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan brings us the incredible story of Herbert Schirmer. On December 3rd, 1967, Schirmer, a twenty-two-year-old police officer, was driving down a desolate highway in Ashland, Nebraska. He approached a pair of lights that he believed to be a stalled vehicle. When he got closer, he realized it wasn't a vehicle on the road, but a craft hovering in the night sky. After a few moments, the craft shot out of sight and the officer returned to his station, noting the sighting in his logbook. 

But for Schirmer, there seemed to be a period of missing time between when he first saw the object and when he left the area. And when he finally recalled what had happened in those missing moments, the story became far bigger and stranger than first imagined, prompting the Air Force and Government to investigate.

Presented in association with the Omaha World-Herald and including actual audio from Schirmer himself, this is the story of the abduction in Ashland.

Rank #17: Mike Clelland: The Messengers

Podcast cover
Read more

On episode 22 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan pulls another fascinating interview out of the INTO THE FRAY archives. This time, he speaks with author and researcher, Mike Clelland, about his book, The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity and the UFO Abductee.

Without question, this is a classic by one of the most exciting new authors in the UFO field today. After reading it, your view of reality will never be the same. The owl has held a place of reverence and mystique throughout history. And as strange as this might seem, owls are also showing up in conjunction with the UFO experience.

Mike Clelland has collected a wealth of first-hand accounts in which owls manifest in the highly charged moments that surround alien contact. There is a strangeness to these accounts that defy simple explanations. This book explores implications that go far beyond what more conservative researchers would dare consider. But the owl connection encompasses more than the UFO experience. It also includes profound synchronicities, ancient archetypes, dreams, shamanistic experiences, personal transformation, and death. From the mythic legends of our ancient past to the first-hand accounts of the UFO abductee, owls are playing some vital role. This is also a deeply personal story. It is an odyssey of self-discovery as the author grapples with his own owl and UFO encounters. What plays out is a story of transformation with the owl at the heart of this journey.

Guest Bio: Mike Clelland is an avid outdoorsman, illustrator and UFO researcher. He has written extensively on the subject of alien abductions, synchronicities and owls. It was his first-hand experiences with these elusive events that have been the foundation for this research. His website explores these events and their connections to the alien contact phenomenon. This site also features extended audio interviews with visionaries and experts examining the complexities of the overall UFO experience.  Beyond that, Mike is considered an expert in the skills of ultralight backpacking, and has authored or illustrated a series of instructional books focused on advanced outdoor techniques. He spent nearly 25 years living in the Rockies, and now lives in the Adirondacks. Visit his website at: www.hiddenexperience.blogspot.com

On episode 106 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, John Greenewald returns to talk about his new book, Inside the Black Vault: The Government's UFO Secrets Revealed.

Rank #20: Ruben Uriarte: UFOs Over Mexico and the Southwest

Podcast cover
Read more

On episode five of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan introduces us to a UFO sighting that occurred in 2004 in which the Mexican Air Force reported eleven UFOs during a routine patrol flight. Infrared cameras mounted on the plane were able to capture the UFOs. Radio transmissions and an official report given to the Mexican Secretary of Defense made this a very intriguing case that received very little attention in the United States. 

The UFO topic is often seen through very western eyes within the United States. But many extraordinary cases have occurred both on the southwestern border and through the skies and grounds of Mexico. And one individual who has looked extensively into these cases is Ruben Uriarte. In this episode, he and Ryan discuss the strange case known as the Cisco Grove incident, in which a UFO witness spent an entire night fighting off an entire fleet of alien humanoids and a robot-looking being. Ruben also speaks of the 1975 Carlos de los Santos case in which a pilot encountered three saucer-shaped UFOs surrounding his plane. They end the conversation talking about a lesser known UFO crash over the town of Coyame in which a mid-air collision supposedly took place between a conventional plane and an unknown aircraft.

Guest Bio: Ruben Jose Uriarte graduated from Cal State University at Hayward/East Bay with a B.A. degree in Psychology and Latin American Studies. Ruben is a member of MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) as a Field Investigator, State MUFON Director for Northern California and Deputy Director of Investigations/International Affairs. Ruben has been involved with a large network of research organizations and served as a California State Coordinator for Crop Circle Phenomena Research International. He was a former research director for Beyond Boundaries, a company specializing in taking tour groups to various UFO "hotspots" around the world. Ruben currently serves as a board member for OPUS (Organization for Paranormal and Support Understanding). He as authored a number of books, co-written with Texas UFO researcher Noe Torres, about major UFO crashes and other historical cases that have occurred along the borders of the United States and Mexico.
