Rank #1: Sean Cahill, Navy UFO Encounter and Guadalupe Island Investigation

Podcast cover
Read more
Sean Cahill was the Chief Master-at-Arms on the USS Princeton in 2004 during a multi-day UFO encounter. At the time, the Princeton was part of the Nimitz Carrier strike group. In November of 2004, the Nimitz Strike Group was conducting training exercises off the coast of San Diego when it picked up odd readings on radar. Eventually, an F-18 jet fighter was zeroed in to observe one of the objects and reported seeing a 40-foot long smooth, white object that looked like a TIC TAC. Later that day the object was caught on infrared video.

In this interview, Sean discusses his experience being on board when the sightings occurred. He also shares his sighting at the time. Sean also appeared on the History Channel's Unidentified: Inside America's UFO Investigation. Sean shares his experience on the show and what it was like working with Luis Elizondo, the former head of the Pentagon's Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP). AATIP investigated military UFO cases.

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.

Rank #4: 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.

Rank #8: David Marler, Triangular UFOs

Podcast cover
Read more
Triangular UFOs are one of the types that are most reported and some of these cases have been the most amazing and credible cases of all UFO sightings. Although there have been some investigations and analysis done on triangular UFOs, until now no one had written a book compiling the sightings to take a closer look at this aspect of the UFO phenomenon. David Marler has done this in his book Triangular UFOs: An Estimate of the Situation, and what he has found is astonishing. He has gone about his investigation in a professional and careful manner. He has not made assumptions, but rather brought the data together to show that the Triangular UFO phenomenon represents something very mysterious, and buttresses the argument that the UFO phenomenon presents a genuine mystery that deserves serious attention.
Besides talking to David about his book, we also are paid a visit by a casting agent looking for people who have had UFO and other paranormal experiences whom may want to participate in their upcoming TV program.

Her book offers up a collection of intimate narratives of encounters between contemporary American Indians, UFOs and Extraterrestrials.

Rank #10: Travis Walton, UFO Abduction Update

Podcast cover
Read more
Travis Walton had one of the most famous and fascinating alleged UFO abduction experiences. It was documented in the movie Fire in the Sky. However, while the movie did portray much of the events surrounding the encounter accurately, the events onboard the spacecraft were completely fictional. What Travis really remembers is much more fascinating. You can listen to us talk about the events in our last show with Travis.

However, this time, Travis and I talk about his upcoming conference to commemorate the 39th anniversary of the event. It includes a sky watch at the location the sighting took place. We also talk about our appearance together on Keeping up with the Kardashians. We went with the Kardashian/Jenner clan to Area 51.

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.

Rank #14: George Knapp - The Government's UFO and Paranormal Study

Podcast cover
Read more
George Knapp is an award-winning investigative journalist and is currently Las Vegas Now's I-Team Chief Reporter. His reporting has made the mysterious Area 51 famous and has uncovered the most extensive scientific study of a paranormal hotspot. He also is an occasional host of Coast to Coast AM. As a UFO show, those are the accolades that likely interest the OpenMinds.tv audience most. However, beyond the paranormal Knapp’s reporting has resulted in two dozen regional Emmys, five regional and two national Edward R. Murrow awards, nine Associated Press Mark Twain Awards for best news writing and a couple of Peabody Awards, among others. In 1990, he won a United Press International award for his UFO reporting. Little did they know just how influential this work would become. 1989 was the year George began reporting on the alleged back-engineering of alien spacecraft at Area 51 by Bob Lazar. This series made the Area 51 base famous worldwide while remaining the most secretive at the same time.

In this interview, we discuss more recent revelations by George and the Las Vegas Now I-Team. In 2005, George co-authored the book Hunt for the Skinwalker: Science Confronts the Unexplained at a Remote Ranch in Utah. His co-author was Colm Kelleher, the lead scientists in the investigation discussed in the book. Before writing the book, George had hoped to create a documentary, but those plans were halted, until now. A new documentary co-produced with Jeremy Corbell includes footage George held on to for years. In addition to the original footage, George’s reporting has revealed the Pentagon partially funded this scientific investigation. This interview includes never-before-shared details about the nature of the government program and the research behind the Hunt for the Skinwalker.

Rank #16: Dr. Bruce Maccabee, The FBI UFO Connection

Podcast cover
Read more
Dr. Bruce Maccabee is a retired optical physicist, and has been one of the premier UFO researchers in the last few decades. His accomplishments in this field are too long to list here, but in particular, Dr. Maccabee was the first to receive the FBI’s UFO files via a FOIA request in the late 1970s. A FBI story on a memo in these files has been getting a lot of attention lately. In this story, the FBI referenced having released the UFO memo in the 70s, they were referring to Dr. Maccabee. Even though this is the case, no one in the media has bothered talking to Dr. Maccabee about the memo, so we are.
We will talk about how the media has gotten this story wrong, Dr. Maccabee’s opinion of this now infamous “Hottel” UFO memo, and what insights the FBI’s UFO files give us into their investigations into the subject.

Rank #18: Jack Weiner, Allagash Alien Abductions

Podcast cover
Read more
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.

Rank #19: Robert Powell, MUFON Top 10 UFO Cases of 2015

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 2015 list just came out a few weeks ago at the 2016 MUFON Symposium in late August. Although months have passed, Powell explains that the board needs that time to be sure the investigation of each case in 2015 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 the top cases.
