This week on The Gralien Report we lead off in advance of Fourth of July with a discussion about one of Micah’s favorite films from childhood: Independence Day, starring Will Smith and Bill Pullman. The discussion of Area 51 and claims of alien crash retrievals can’t be had these days without mention of the most famous alleged employee at S4, Bob Lazar, whose strange life experiences were the recent subject of a documentary.
We also touch on how an asteroid early warning system detected a near-miss over the weekend, which happens to coincide with the anniversary of the famous Tunguska Event of 1908… but is this purely a coincidence? There are reasons to suspect that it’s not… finally, we are joined by guest Susan Masino, a rock ‘n’ roll journalist who has chronicled the history of the famous Australian rockers AC/DC since their early days, as well as the Hank Williams family and other institutions in the history of popular music. Susan is also the author of the book The Secrets of the Universe, and she joins us to discuss her many stories of unusual experiences and strange coincidences.
