pisode 106: Author of I’m Still Here and founder of “The Big Circle – Bridge to the Afterlife, Martha Copeland, joins me on the show. Martha Copeland lost her daughter Cathy in a car accident in 2001. This loss triggered Martha’s desire to contact Cathy, on the other side, through Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP) recording sessions. As Martha’s EVP knowledge and experiences deepened, she authored the book,” I’m Still Here” and was a founder of “The Big Circle – Bridge to the Afterlife.” This group is made up of bereaved parents, spouses, siblings and friends, whose mission is to build a bridge to their loved ones in spirit. Her work continued as Martha appeared on various television shows to promote EVP and the Big Circle. In 2005, Martha worked with Universal Studios on the movie “White Noise” and appears in the bonus section of the White Noise DVD where Martha and other mothers discussed their personal experiences with EVP and the “Big Circle”. Martha talked about her remarkable story and how she came to become involved with using EVP to make contact with her deceased daughter and other family. We also played some of the many EVPs she has captured over the years and Martha provided some background and context to each of the EVP recordings played.

Episode 105: On this episode, award winning author Paul Buckner joins me on the show. Paul is a Citizen of the Cherokee Nation, author, musician, and avid outdoorsman. The oral tradition of his Cherokee family drove him to collect folktales and stories of those he met in his travels across the U.S. Many of the stories have been passed down through several generations. It is these stories that provide inspiration for his writing. Paul grew up in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains and as a young boy spent many summers in the woods or on the lakes, creeks and rivers hunting, fishing, and camping. Those experiences led to a deep respect for the outdoors, traditional ways, and the natural environment. Paul is an award-winning Amazon top selling author of the action/adventure series, Hawthorn Lake and its associated short story, The Lost Gold Mine of Idaho Springs and his latest book, Bigfoot, UFOs and the Paranormal: True Encounters.

On this episode, during the intro I summarize the May 17th Congressional hearings on UFOs / UAPs, which included comments from several congressmen, to include Representatives Andre Carson, Eric Crawford, Adam Shiff and Mike Gallagher. Two defense officials attended the hearings and answered questions. The defense officials were The Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence, Scott Bray and Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security, Ronald Moultrie. Surprisingly, some of the hard hitting questions came from Republican Rep of Wisconsin, Mike Gallagher. He asked about covert initiatives between the Air Force’s Project Blue Book and AATIP, about UFOs shutting down missile silos over Malstrom AFB and about the veracity of the infamous Wilson-Davis Memo, which alleged that there are ongoing Special Access Programs within the US government concerning UFOs. The following URL provides a good summary of the hearing. https://theobservermagazine.substack…./UAPs%20tends%20to%20be%20more%20detailed%20than%20in%20the%20mainstream%20media.%20%3Ci%3EThe%20Observer%3C/i%3E%20covers%20%22The%20Basics.

Mass UFO Sightings (Phoenix Lights)
In March of 1997, large triangular objects appeared over the skies of Phoenix, known as the Phoenix Lights. This was considered one of the largest mass UFO sightings in modern history, with over 10,000 witnesses involved. Witnesses include a medical doctor and best selling author, Dr. Lynne Kitei, law enforcement personnel, air traffic control, pilots, a famous actor and many more. Ultimately, the Air Force tried to convince the public that what they witnessed that night were flares being deployed from aircraft operating on the Barry Goldwater Range. Many credible witnesses to the event consider the craft they saw to be otherworldly and reject the Air Force’s claim that these were flares? Do you think there is a rational explanation for what people witnessed on that night? What is your favorite UFO case and why.
