In the first half, George Noory was joined by ufologist Dr. Roger Leir, who discussed findings from an alien implant removal surgery he performed on December 5, 2003. Leir described the removed object as a magnetic, metallic rod, 6mm in length with distinctive groove lines. Scanning electronic microscopy and x-ray diffraction tests revealed the implant was composed primarily of iron with an amorphous structure, which Leir said was odd for something that was highly magnetic.
Leir also took listeners' calls and talked about a movie he is currently developing called Earth's Original Sin. In the final hour, George played audio from the December 5th implant removal operation, which he and Coast producer Tom Danheiser attended.
The last half of Friday's program was Open Lines, with a special topic line for people with unforgettable 'campfire stories.' A trucker named John remembered seeing a frightening 3-ft tall creature that resembled a small man hiding behind a redwood tree. John said he was unnerved by the way the little man growled at him as it ran off.
Emily in Hawaii shared the time her little boy was run over by a car and was dead for 45 minutes. After trying unsuccessfully to revive him, Emily said she cried out to God for her son's life and he was sent back to her. Interestingly, Emily noted that her son recalls floating above his body during the time he was dead.
C2C Science Advisor Richard C. Hoagland appeared during the first half-hour to comment on the first images (scroll down) taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO). The new MRO images may show the ruins of a massive artificial structure, Hoagland suggested.
