Alien Abduction / History of UFOs

About the show

Bruce Rapuano joined George Knapp in the first half to discuss his lifelong experiences with alien abduction and theories about the alien agenda. Rapuano – who holds a Ph.D. in neuropharmacology, and has authored, or coauthored thirty scientific articles in peer-reviewed medical journals – had never discussed his abduction experiences with family or friends before releasing his book. He told Knapp he hoped going public about his own abduction experiences would encourage other scientists who had seen UFOs or been abducted to come forward, and those who hadn’t to look at these experiences objectively. Rapuano's experiences included a childhood UFO encounter where he remembered his playmates seeming frozen as he moved around for a better look, but at least one of them remembered him disappearing for a period of time.

Rapuano said that many abductees, like himself, report having genetic material collected, which could be used for in vitro fertilization type experiments. He said this doesn’t necessarily mean the creation of alien/human hybrids, but could be the editing of human genes, and the creation of transgenic humans. These transgenic humans could then introduce those edited genes into the wider population through natural reproductive means. He also said he believes implants, particularly like the one he has in his nose, are attempts to monitor brain activity and “understand human neurophysiology.”  


Writer and historian Marc Hartzman helped put experiences like Rapuano’s and others in context, discussing the gamut of UFO history from events like the Kelly-Hopkinsville goblins to the disclosures of the US government on UFOs (or UAPs) in a June 2021 report and recent Congressional hearings. This included the arc of Dr. J. Allen Hynek’s career, from skeptical Air Force debunker, explaining away sightings as swamp gas, to a serious investigator of the phenomenon.

“It truly was an amazing admission for the government to acknowledge there are things flying around our airspace that we can’t identify,” Hartzman said. “That wouldn’t have happened decades ago, even a decade ago.” Hartzman also touched on the SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) program’s “Wow” signal and other indirect evidence of alien contact, the wide variety of alien craft reported over the years, and various other aspects of the UFO phenomenon.  


George Knapp shared recent items of interest, including new info on the Big Bang, lion paintings in ancient Puerto Rico, planet killer asteroids, talking gargoyles, and the dangers of A.I.
