In the early 1990's, Frank Feschino became involved in UFO and Crop Circle research in West Virginia. He frequently visited a relative's farm located in Braxton County, where Crop Circles appeared overnight and UFO sightings were frequent. This is when Feschino learned about the 1952 "Braxton County Monster" Incident, which occurred in Flatwoods, near his cousin's farm. Frank has interviewed a host of people on video in the more than 10 years he has been working on the case.
In the first hour, guest host Whitley Strieber (email) welcomed Dr. Roger Leir, who discussed his most recent implant removal surgery of what he called a "manufactured device that is not from this world." Whitley noted that he was also in attendance during the procedure. Leir's patient 'John' is a scientist who works in a very sensitive area of communications research, Whitley added. According to Leir, the implant embedded in John's foot gave off the same radio frequency that is used for mobile deep-space communications. Leir also said the strange object contained carbon nanotubes and appeared to reassemble itself in a container after it had been removed. The details get even stranger though. Leir examined John's home and discovered an abundance of magnetic anomalies â even in things (such as plastic and wood) that should not give off any magnetic fields. More interesting still is what a UV light revealed in the master bedroom: "two small, childlike, four-fingered hand prints ... More »Host: Whitley Strieber
Ufologists Stanton Friedman and Frank Feschino discussed the 'Flatwoods Monster' encounter, which took place on Sept. 12, 1952, during what they believe was the biggest UFO flap in US history. Witnesses said they saw a large oval-shaped craft set down on a hill in Flatwoods in Braxton County, WV, and when they went to investigate they were sickened by a sulfur-like smell. An object that witnesses reported seeing near the craft became known as a 'monster' based on a sketch artist's interpretation. However, Feschino suggested the 'monster' was something encased in metal, with eye-like portals on its head. The arms depicted with claws in the sketch, actually had antenna-like appendages, according to the witness. View Feschino's drawing here.According to Feschino's research, the craft in Flatwoods passed by Washington DC earlier that night on its flight path, and may have been damaged by a military shootdown. There were other damaged UFOs that night as well, he said.Friedman a ... More »Host: George Noory

Journalist and author, Evan Schwartz (gotjuice.org) said invention is one of the oldest forces of mankind and he discussed both the creative process and the suppression behind current and past inventions. There is an old saying that it is "safer to invent the future than predict it," and inventors may feel that their concepts give them power over the future, he noted. Different creative strategies have been employed, he detailed, such asDa Vinci using analogy to formulate his flying designs and Edison combining many inventions together into a system. Schwartz commented that inventors such as Edison and Alexander Graham Bell were the heroes of their day but today's inventors are perceived more as "kooky" outcasts working in their basements. This transition took place partially because corporations began taking control of more and more patents, as well as working to suppress technology they viewed as being bad for their business, he explained. Governments can seize inventions, said ... More »Host: George Noory
