Last Show Recap

Investigating Skull & Bones

In the first half of the program, George Knapp welcomed nuclear power expert, Arnie Gundersen, who discussed how, more than four years after the triple meltdown at Fukushima, nuclear waste inside the reactors continues to bleed into the Pacific Ocean creating low concentrations of radioactivity that have already migrated across the Pacific to the west coast of North America. Steven Starr of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation briefly joined the conversation during the second hour.

In the latter half, former Nevada consumer advocate and public utility commissioner Timothy Hay addressed the attempt by power companies to crush rooftop solar energy by throwing up roadblocks to make it harder for homeowners to install, and how electric companies hate the idea of clean, plentiful solar taking away their business.

Investigating Skull & Bones

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - October 5, 2004
Host: George Noory
Guests: Alexandra Robbins

Author Alexandra Robbins returned to the show to further discuss her investigation of Yale's infamous secret society, Skull & Bones, which she chronicled in her book Secrets of the Tomb. The "Tomb," a crypt-like building on the Yale campus that is headquarters to the club, is filled with human and animal skulls and relics of death and war, as well containing an underground tunnel, she noted. Various rituals take place among its undergraduate members, Robbins detailed, including paying homage to the Goddess of Eloquence - Eulogia, as well as a sharing of their sexual histories in what is called "Connubial Bliss."

Skull and Bones which was started in 1832, has around 800 living members at any one time, and according to Robbins its main purpose is to get members into roles of power, who then often help other members attain important positions. Interestingly, she noted that the CIA has a number of members who were Bonesmen, and at various meetings with members they were said to casually share secretive documents. Working for the CIA has been known to undergraduate members as an "employer of last resort," she added.

After a number of attempts, women were finally allowed as members of Skull and Bones in the 1990's, said Robbins, who also touched on her undercover investigation into sororities. While containing some secretive elements and initiations, she said she found that there were a lot of positive elements to sororities.
