Richard Syrett welcomes an author/researcher who discusses the present state of UFOlogy. He’ll explain why UFOlogy has to move beyond the mere recording of UFO sightings and start asking what causes UFO reports. He’ll also talk about the state of the Disclosure Movement and offer up some alternative ideas of what may be behind the phenomenon.
GUEST: Interested in “facts that don’t fit” from an early age, in 1991, Greg Bishop co-founded a magazine called The Excluded Middle, which was a journal of UFOs, conspiracy research, psychedelia and new science. Wake Up Down There!, which anthologized many of the articles and features, was published in 2000. Greg’s second book was Project Beta: The Story of Paul Bennewitz, National Security, and the Creation of a Modern UFO Myth, which documented a government campaign of disinformation perpetrated against an unsuspecting U.S. citizen. Weird California, a portrait of strange and eerie history and places in the Golden State, was published in 2006. From December 2007 to November 2011, Greg blogged for the UFO and paranormal site UFOmystic. His current book It Defies Language is a collection of essays detailing his long involvement with the UFO subject, government insiders, and theories and opinions about what is behind the phenomenon.
For two years Greg hosted The Hungry Ghost, an interview and music show airing on pirate FM station KBLT in Los Angeles. His current interviews with UFO and paranormal researchers and personalities can be heard at radiomisterioso.com.
