    Yup - that's why I replied the way I did when you posted that link about involuntary invisibility. Upstate just a bit, worked in the NY Metro area for a long time. These days Manhattan's a visit, not work. Thank God. Had more of that than I ever need.

    I was hoping you'd come in to Tony's dressed as a MiB and tell me I was urgently needed at The Office and hook me outta there :)
    Actually, the family dinner was fine but I have a fine sense of how an animal can chew it's own leg off to escape a trap.

    'Pigfarmer' is a Harley reference and the nickname got hung on me years ago, even before I bought my Wide Glide. You got at least one Hog you iz a Pigfarmer ...... no, no actual swine for this kid beyond an occasional BLT.

    The Midnight Hour (0030) Fact checking a cosmic conman

    Join Steven Cambian as he fact checks simple earthly claims of Corey Goode. It appears that every time Corey Goode's statements can be fact checked, it turns out he is lying. If he lies about simple earthly things, does that mean he is lying about his buck rogers time traveling and space adventure fantasies he claims are real?

    This one is unremarkable but there's a reason I am posting it here.

    ‎ADP: Col. Kevin Randle (Ret), PhD: ADP: Dr. Michael Shermer - Nature of Evidence; Why Scientists Don’t Believe In UFOs a l’Apple Podcasts

    I have enjoyed MonsterTalk quite a bit over the years, although lately it's started to fade a bit. Don't know if it's me or them or both. Their follow on In Research Of does not light my pants on fire. I've read through Skeptic magazine and although I am admittedly quite skeptical about quite a bit they can be too dismissive for my taste.

    So - Kevin Randle. Like the guy but he can be a bit intense. I listened to this episode to see what Dr. Shermer had to say. I'll save you the hour - it was essentially Grover Krantz saying "show me the body" and I have to admit, the man has a point. Not the only way to look at it but hard to argue; you want to unequivocally put something to bed a corpse would definitely help. A live breathing blinking body would be even better, maybe along with some snazzy hardware.

    Nothing new at all here except that here we have a show in which the subject of the interview comes across like some guy that sat down next to you at the deli. Doesn't believe anything and is patiently listening to what you have to say while glancing at his watch. In this case that's Shermer and we have Randle going AH-HAH!! and excitedly citing a detail from 1950-something to prove a point that's already been flogged like a rented mule. I don't doubt his research at all and am glad he's made his work available but I'm not sure the public desire to delve in that depth in iconic cases is all that great anymore. We're getting old and if what he's saying fails to resonate with me anymore imagine how it must sound to someone half my age. Not that they're even listening..... they're paying more attention to TTSA - the Ufology reboot for the next generation. That has cool videos not grainy photos. Nobody under the age of 30 can wrap their head around film and typewriters and paper files.

    All fine and well but when you take a few steps back and listen to these two men it's really Ufology in a nutshell. "I don't believe it, or much of anything. I am dry white toast" on one side and "what about this really old detail here, see, see? that proves it!! "

    Gawd.

    I just started listening to Unexplained Mysteries. I listened to a two-part episode on the The Voynich Manuscript. I liked it so much that I subscribed. Molly Brandenburg & Richard Rossner appear to take a scholarly approach to the topics they cover, which comprise a wide variety of topics that are not yet fully understood. Some of them involve what could be viewed as paranormal, but most do not. Wikipedia places it in the category of Investigative Journalism. Also, the format is technically referred to as "scripted"; there are no guests. Here's the official description:

    “We don’t know.” answers too many questions. But in this podcast, we don’t take “we don’t know” for an answer. Every Thursday, Unexplained Mysteries investigates the greatest mysteries of history and life on earth, because the answer “we don’t know” is always the scariest.
