    Those ads are from the GCN Live network. Steinberg has no control over those. He does sit there like he has a stopwatch in order not to miss a commercial break.

    Seems right up his alley. Why not take credit for two subscriptions, when he's been taking credit for adding anything to the show from two co-hosts for years.

    Never underestimate the typical UFO researcher and the allure of getting their ego stroked a bit as a guest at conference, on a radio show, or on a podcast. Scheme Gene aside, it amazes me how many want to be taken seriously and then go off to a conference to present along with batshit insane speakers.

    When these authors have a new book to sell they don’t care what UFO/Paranormal show they appear on. It’s business as usual.

    You may have noticed that Steinberg never goes to any UFO conventions. He normally has some bad alibi he uses. I figured that he would get grief from the attendees about his financial funny business. He wouldn’t have his website’s Rules and Regulations (no criticism of the owner) to hide behind.

    well it is a way to get more people to know your ideas, most people that frequent conferences these days are nuts, with the exception of nick redfern and jacques vallee

    If he went to those conventions I doubt he would beg for money face to face with people, but I don't know, maybe he would be so bold, but I think its easier for him to beg from his computer in the confines of his motel and disconnected from the people he's taking money from...He doesn't have to see faces or expressions...

    Going somewhere consists of getting off your ass and doing something, instead of sitting in front of a computer and making up reasons why others should pay for his expenses.

    I mean, what exactly could he even offer? An amateurish sci-fi novel, some 1990's AOL how-to books, and a ton of poor jokes and 60s pop culture references? I would rather pay to hear random posters on this forum speak than him.

    Here's Gene on December 14, 2013, telling how he "traded in a 2011 Accord EX-L V6 with navigation" to a new Kia "2014 Optima EX with Premium": 2014 Optima EX with Premium Owner

    Confirmation from his own forum: "Kia Optima." What Kind of Car Do You Drive?

    List price seems to have been $23,950 + $3,300 for that premium package: 2014 Kia Optima EX 4dr Sedan Pricing and Options

    Here's him warning others how BMW "will try to extort a big fee to replace expensive run flat tires at the end of a lease": Question re lease return

    Which seems to confirm he had a leased BMW before that Accord, and apparently "I was never enamored of BMW audio, using a 2008 3-series as an example": Hello from Nor California!

    Also V6 VW "the engine has about the same horsepower as the Honda and VW I had, with V6 engines, in the early 2000s": Debating on an Optima - Page 3

    Which was "Had a 2004 Passat V6 GLX. Built on the same platform as the Audi A4, so it was a fancy ride." What Kind of Car Do You Drive?

    With optional goodies again: "I was favorably impressed with the VW Passat GLX after two test drives and took home a Brilliant Silver version with the optional stability control" 2003 Volkswagen Passat Warning Reviews - Top 10 Problems

    According to this comment, he has also sent a begging email roughly a week before that first message on the Kia forum, and those kept coming: An Open Letter To Ufology

    There seems to a pattern of brand new cars with high performance engines and optional goodies every 3 years or so. If he hasn't bought a new one yet, please help Gene and send lots of money, as he would be overdue for a new one.

    Edit: Never mind that last part, he already had a VW again on June 26, 2017: "My now departed car, a VW sedan, is well rated for safety. I wear seat belts religiously, and the air bags went off as designed when the collision occurred." June 25, 2017 — John DeSouza

    My Mom had a phrase for guys like Steinberg. "He could step in of bucket of shit and come up smelling like a rose." This guy has managed to supposedly go from one crisis to another. It frankly amazes me he isn't behind bars.
