Tonight's first hour guest, Epidemiologist Dr. Robert W. Haley, has been studying the connection between Gulf War Syndrome and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) for the last decade. ALS, sometimes called Lou Gehrig's disease, is a rapidly progressive neurological disease that results in paralysis and eventually death. For those afflicted, there is no hope of cure for the disease.A recently published study in this month's issue of Neurology shows the rate of ALS in Gulf War veterans younger than 45 years of age was as much as three times more than the rate expected in the general population.Dr. Halely notes, "ALS is extremely rare in young age groups. Our findings suggest that some environmental exposure that these veterans had in the Gulf War greatly accelerated the ALS process so that it occurred at a much younger age."Despite mounting evidence, not everyone is convinced of the relationship between Gulf War service and ALS.

The Hag in BlackA few years ago, I had an Old Hag experience. I noticed myself laying in my bed. It was early morning and my apartment was illuminated by the dawn sun. I looked towards the foot of my bed and saw a short woman with black, hair, eyes, and dress standing in the corner of the room. This terrified me and at that moment I realized that I was paralyzed. In an instant, I saw the woman approach me at a very fast speed. It was as if every time I blinked (although I am not sure I was blinking), she had advanced on me until her face was right in front of mine and it felt as though she was sitting on my chest. After that, I seemed to break out of the paralysis and found myself laying in bed in my empty room. I have had a few instances of hypnagogic (hallucinatory) sleep paralysis in my life, but this was the scariest.
Tonight's guest, Dr. Brian Weiss, has found startling evidence for the idea of reincarnation and past lives, through his work with regression techniques. Conversely, the late Dr. Helen Wambach, pioneered "future-progression" studies with large groups of people beginning in 1980. What she found, as documented in the book Mass Dreams of the Future by Chet Snow, disturbed her. The majority of subjects who were hypnotically progressed to the early 21st Century, reported being in a "floating" state which she recognized as indicating they were between lives. Because many of the people should have still been alive in this time frame, Wambach concluded a large scale catastrophe(s) may have wiped out a significant portion of the population. Things were looking up by 2300 A.D. and beyond, where a higher percentage of subjects reported being alive (i.e. in a future life). Snow characterized this era as "The Outward Wave," where people found themselves living in a synthetic space environm
Investigator Linda Moulton Howe (earthfiles.com) appeared in the first hour of Wednesday's program, reporting on a set of unusual megalithic stones found off the coast of Cuba that resembled architecture. They "can't be explained in natural geology," said Linda, who listed such shapes as triangles, pyramids and curved surfaces as showing up in the sonar images. Linda interviewed Paul Weinzweig, co-owner of Advanced Digital Communications International, who was involved in the deep ocean bottom discovery. He told her that National Geographic had expressed interest in a preliminary survey of the structures before they would commit to a more extensive examination. To view photographs and read more details check out Linda's report on Earthfiles.com.
Tonight's guest Rosemary Guiley has explored the fascinating terrain of dream animals. "Animals are the dream world's greatest teachers," she writes in an article from her website. She suggests that animals that appear in our dreams represent the unconscious and as such can reveal material from deeper or higher layers of our being. Certainly animals have played a major role in mythologies and religions throughout the ages, and these associations and symbols can reverberate in our dreams. James Hillman, the author of Dream Animals, refers to these creatures of our psyche as "archetypal eternal images." These inhabitants of our imagination, he says, are unpredictable, and cannot be "captured" into a single meaning. Guiley believes dream animals can point us towards traits that we need to develop. "Whether they seem to be friend or foe, dream animals are our spiritual allies, guides and teachers," she writes. Meanwhile in the humdrum waking world, my cat seems to be saying nothing mo
Art caught up with author Whitley Strieber (unknowncountry) to discuss the latest news about UFOs including a spectacular sigthing in British Columbia.
Speaking at this past weekend's Bay Area UFO Expo, (and guesting tonight on C2C) was Jason Martell, who has studied Planet X theories and ancient artifacts. One of the few younger researchers at the Expo, the black-clad Martell gave a slick Power Point presentation that showed images which could bolster the Ancient Astronaut hypothesis. Jumping over to South America, for a take on some rather modern ETs, was Dr. Roger Leir, best know for his alien implant removals. Leir documented his journey to the town of Varginha, Brazil where he interviewed witnesses to the 1996 case, where allegedly large-headed aliens were scooped up by the military. Contrary to popular reports, witnesses told him that at least one of the beings did not have a noxious or oily smell, though it did have red eyes and visible veins in its shoulder. "Do ETs walk among us?" asked author Robert Perala. Quite possibly one came up to him after one of his lectures Perala detailed. The man said he came to Earth 35

Glenn Kimball will be discussing Melchizedek, whom he says was the first recorded person to be given the promise that he would have power over his death and not die (Hebrews 5: 4-10). Described as the King of Salem in the Bible, he was pictured giving Abraham bread and wine, in the famous painting by Rubens.
Tonight's guest, James Gardner, breaks away from both mainstream scientific and religious thought, with his "biocosm" theory. "The immense saga of biological evolution on Earth is one tiny chapter in an ageless tale of the struggle of the creative force of life against
the brute intransigence of lifeless matter," he writes. This view turns the standard scientific precept that life developed randomly and is of no cosmic significance, on its head. Gardner's hypothesis also parts from the Judeo-Christian notion of an unknowable supernatural Creator. He writes "the mind of God is the natural culmination of the evolution of the mind of humans and other intelligent creatures throughout the universe." But what if "life" itself is merely a label of our own invention? "Try as we might to impose a definition of life on nature, there are bound to be instances where the distinction between living and non-living is blurred or indeterminate," David Darling expounds in his Extraterre
Gary Pratt, the founder of the think tank Tree House Consulting shared some of his group's innovative technologies in the first hour of Tuesday's show. One of their techniques involves the use of frequency vibrations, such as used in Tesla's experiments. Pratt cited a "hologramic disc sticker" as one of their innovations which could be used to change molecular structures. In a live demonstration, he explained how such a sticker could be used to cool the temperature of ice water, by acting as a "radiant barrier." Among some of Tree House's other environmentally friendly concepts are durable roof tiles made from recycled tires, and a special soil polymer, that doesn't dry out even when sitting out in the desert. According to Pratt, it could have tremendous applications for planting and growing without irrigation.
By Linda C. Years ago, I worked at a barbeque place and had to be at work at 4:30 in the morning. On my route I walked by the back side of a big park; it was said to be a special place in the past for the Native Americans with natural springs right off the Colorado river. One morning I was walking as usual and I passed this place that went under the bridge; it was a little path opposite a tunnel and I heard what sounded like a small kitten mewing just out of sight in the shadows. I stopped and called to it to see if I could make it come out; it wouldn't, so I kept on walking. For several days this went on, then something started to change. It was the sound the animal was making; it became more insistent; like a cat when it's watching you open a can of cat food. Then the sound it was making turned into a sound an angry cat makes when it growls at you. By then I knew it wasn't an animal, not even close. By this time I was praying when I walked. This seemed to make it more angry,
Tonight's guest, Col. John Alexander is an expert in the cutting edge technology of non-lethal weaponry, some of which seems right out of the pages of science-fiction. And yet, there's one non-lethal weapon which was successfully employed in Operation Iraqi Freedom, that's decidedly low-tech. Cold, hard cash. In the October issue of Soldier of Fortune, Don McLean notes that while less-than-lethal military weapons are often too lethal, or too useless, "bald-faced bribery," can be more effective than a precision bomb, and comes with no collateral damage. According to his article "The Greenback Bomb: The Smartest Ordnance of All," the Pentagon acknowledged the importance of such methods, and oversaw PsyOps forces that in addition to massive leaflet drops, used a barrage of "black methods." Senior Iraqi officials were "inundated with emails and calls to their mobile phones. The messages were personal, usually tailored to the individual," and urged surrender for the benefit of themsel
Coast listener Martin writes: "With all the news of the Red Planet this week, I submit this photo of "My Closest Approach To Marrs on Earth." Jim Marrs, that is, as in tonight's guest. Martin had his "close encounter" with Marrs at his book signing during Conspiracy Con in Santa Clara. Click here to view.
Mars is ready for it's close-up, reaching its closest distance to Earth today. Click here to view a portrait of the planet taken by the Hubble telescope hours ago, showing Hellas Basin.

Before there was frozen pizza and canned peaches, there was dried food. In fact drying has been for thousands of years the main method of food preservation. Tonight's guest, Richard Perez has posted an article (in PDF format) by Dennis Scanlin on his website, that details how to use and construct a Solar Food Dryer. By lowering the moisture content in food, spoilage is prevented and flavor and nutrition are to some degree preserved. Just about any food source can be dried, and once completed they tend to take up less weight and bulk than other storage methods. The way the food is dried is affected by temperature, humidity and air flow. Temperatures used vary depending on the item, with higher temperatures drying faster. The Solar Dryer costs about a $150 to make and uses such basic materials as plywood, stainless steel, and aluminum. This outdoor contraption operates by natural convection, and can for instance, dry 7-10 lbs. of thinly sliced fruit or veggies in one to two
One country that has created an elaborate underground labyrinth of bunkers, residences and tunnels is Iraq, and it's possible that Saddam Hussein is currently hiding out in a subterranean location there. The recent special Saddam's Secret Tunnels on the History Channel, explored some of these mysterious underground locations that it's believed Saddam began building back in the 1980's, using equipment and materials from countries around the world. He ordered the construction of an intricate network, "with miles of interconnected tunnels with camouflaged entry points, and escape routes to Syria," Newsweek's Christopher Dickey commented. Saddam is said to have been inspired by the Yugoslavian dictator Tito's impenetrable bunker system. In fact, his underground "Project 2000," built across from the Presidential Palace, was hit by 5,000 lb. precision bombs during the recent conflict, and though, the US military says the state of the bunker is "classified," it is believed it is l
George Noory is proud to announce that Peter Davenport of the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) will be a regular contributor to Coast to Coast AM. "Starting in September, Peter will make periodic visits to C2C, updating listeners with the latest information on breaking UFO reports," said George "and I am pleased that Peter would agree to come back to the show." NUFORC is highly regarded for its collection and dissemination of objective UFO data.
Tonight Friday Night Feature presents two different stories and drawings: The Cackling Shadow Person Here is a rendition of a Shadow Person I saw years ago during a suicide attempt. Definitely not a positive encounter. It horrified me so much, I struggled to keep going. As I was bleeding, this creature moved supernaturally fast and cackled at the fact it was about to take my soul. The entire Shadow Person phenomena has brought all this back to me. --Steve email@example.com The Unknown Animal Five weeks ago, prior to finding your show on the radio, I was driving tothe Salt Lake City Airport about 7:45pm. It's dark but not overly so. On the way, I drive over a mountain pass with a town half way through. So, after passing the town I see this dog's buttside along the side the road just standing there. The dog has very curly hair of a brownish gray color and looks very dirty. Another noticeable feature is it has no paws, almost like curly haired tubes. It
When I interviewed tonight's guest, Sean David Morton, for After Dark back in 1999, he told me about a process he underwent called Direct Time Soul Transference. "I went forward a 100 years into the future in front of 700 people in Anaheim in 1994. In my experience, what you might call a 'post-life progression,' I switched bodies with my next reincarnation, 'Vajra.' I was running around a farm in Omaha looking at things...while he spoke to the crowd in Anaheim." As Morton witnessed unusual geometric buildings at the Omaha complex that had synthesized jewels on the roofs that enhanced functions, "Vajra" filled the audience with details of what to him were past events. Here is a partial timeline: 2017: US war with China, 200 million-strong army invades America. 2027: Planet hit by meteor, huge devastation. 2034: Alien intervention, Messianic figure "Immaneula" born around this time. 2050+: Civilization rebuilt, golden age lies ahead. --L.L.
Coast to Coast AM with George Noory has been named the best Alternative Talk program amongst network and syndicated shows, in a just published poll in the trade magazine Radio Ink. Their annual Readers Choice Awards polled radio executives, managers, programmers and marketers to determine which programs were working the best on their stations, and were the most popular with their listeners. While Art Bell is credited with creating "America's most fascinating radio program," it is "George Noory that has carried the show forward for the past eight months," Radio Ink wrote.
One of the topics tonight's guest, Seth Shostak, the Senior Astronomer for SETI, will be talking about, is the new Allen Telescope Array, now under construction. The facility at theHat Creek Observatory on a remote patch of Northern California land, will be a veritable "antenna orchard," said Shostak, containing 350 small radio telescopes all working together to greatly expand SETI's "stellar reconnaissance." Made possible through funding by former Microsoft technologists Paul Allen and Nathan Myhrvold, the Array will give SETI full time access for their missions, whereas previously they only got a meager number of weeks out of the year to use facilities like Arecibo. With this new form of radio astronomy, SETI's research could be taking a giant leap forward. SETI's current Project Phoenix currently tracks about a thousand stars. When the Allen Array goes online, they will have the ability to monitor transmissions from possibly 100,000 stars or more, because the Array can e
Due to the major power failure on Thursday in the U.S. and Canada, George Noory presented two hours of early coverage last night, which was heard live on Streamlink, and in markets that carry the early feed. The audio archive of this material is posted under Show Clips (above). Here is a rundown of the four guests who appeared, each for a half-hour: Terrorism Expert Bazzel Baz (TerrorismSurvivalHandbook) started the show and noted the proximity of timing of the blackout to the recent computer virus, which he said is believed to have originated in China. Physicist Jim McCanney (jmccanneyscience.com) followed, and spoke of a "low rumbling sonic boom," that had been heard in the area at the time of the blackout. James Chiles (invitingdisaster.com),a technology writer, appeared next, suggesting one possible cause could have been a disgruntled employee who would have the skills to inflict this kind of damage. The two-hour special closed with author Steve Quayle (stevequayle.
Wednesday's first hour guest Shelly Lynn Williams PhD, a primate researcher, spoke about evidence for a possible new ape species discovered in the Congo. These enigmatic creatures appeared on some video footage she shot. One of the animals was gray in color, which Williams said was unusual for an ape. She believes they may be hybrids of either guerilla-chimp or chimp-bonobo, if not an altogether new species that has never been documented previously. Below is a set of pictures related to her work.

On November 9, 1965, over thirty million people in the Northeastern region of the U.S. and Canada were plunged into darkness in what became known as the "Big Blackout."The official cause of the huge outage shifted from one explanation to another, until it was finally pinned on an unknown power surge that occurred at a generating station north of Niagara Falls. But what could have caused this huge wave of electricity (reportedly 1.1 million kiowatts) that led to a relay malfunction? Interestingly, there were a number of documented UFO sightings in the area proceeding and during the blackout. For instance, a pilot who safely landed a plane in the darkness at the airport in Syracuse, said he saw an enormous ball of light drifting in the sky. Around the same time, a flight instructor and a student who were in the air, also saw the object and pinpointed its location to be directly above the Clay sub-station, which was where the original investigation of the blackout began. The l
Just coming out in the mainstream media, such as in this article, is a story we broke 6 months ago on Coast to Coast.

Tonight's guest, Dr. Bruce Goldberg, has collected case studies of people who say they were visited by time travelers from 1,000 to 3,000 years in our future. Pioneering out-of-body explorer, the late Robert Monroe, wrote of traveling to Earth, at a time beyond the year 3,000 in his book Far Journeys. While out of body, he was escorted by an INSPEC (intelligent species) and at first they viewed the planet from space. "Around the earth was a single flat ring, much like the ones around Saturn, and it was radiating and sparkling...from its own internal source," wrote Monroe. As they flew in closer, he noted there were no visible planes, ships, or people. However, there was a lush growth of trees and plants, some types of which he had never seen before. Monroe was told that the planet was occupied by far less people and those that were here were "H-plus" (humans-plus: indicating modifications from those of our present time). After they "landed," he encountered two INSPEC appearin
This week, we present the first subject of our new Entities Gallery which combines accounts of strange beings with drawings made by the witnesses. The first tale comes from Carolyn K.: Back in 1966, my brother and I, ages 8 and 9 years old at the time, were camping with our father at a lakein California called Cachuma Lake. This lake is located in the mountains above Santa Barbara. We both (without our father) got up pre-dawn one morning and walked to our favorite fishing spot andsettled in for a morning of fishing. There were no other people in the area at this point (around 5:30 a.m.)We were sitting, relaxed and waiting for fish when something caught my eye over by a huge, old oak tree. I looked at my brother who was also staring at this "being" who, in turn, was staring at us. It wasprobably about 40 feet from us sitting on the ground next to the oak tree. Its appearance was strange.My brother and I had a sense that it was sort of human and sort of animal
