This week on The Gralien Report Podcast, Micah and Race kick things off discussing similarities between people’s attitudes toward the subject of UFOs, compared with similar attitudes people seem to have in relation to politics, religion, science, and a host of other disciplines. On the heels of that discussion, we turn out attention to some interesting UFO footage that has been making the rounds, even making an appearance on Fox News and a number of other news channels and websites. What does it show us, and more importantly, what should we know about the source before we make any judgements about the veracity of the footage?

Meanwhile, in Australia many have likened a recent series of earthquakes to “atomic bombs going off below ground.” Also, a new genetic study has helped scientists learn something fascinating about ancient Phoenicians, in an ancient tale that is ever-changing before our modern eyes. Then in hour two, we shift our focus to a fascinating story from Micah’s home state, which involved a mysterious crater that randomly appeared in the forest near Winston Salem, North Carolina, back in the 1960s. From there, it’s off to some discussion about the famous freak of the Himalayas, the Yeti, and how a wealthy oil tycoon had secretly helped scientific research into the creature’s existence a number of decades ago.

However, the story of Tom Slick may in fact go much deeper than merely an interest in cryptozoology and mystery beasts, since the wealthy philanthropist had also founded a number of research centers over the years, some of which involved such things as applied physics and consciousness research. As we go further down the rabbit hole, we also find that they may have had to do with a lot more than merely advancements in the world of science.

  1. Wow what a great show. As you may know I was a hardcore Alex Jones believer and most of my friends still are but because of you and my really wanting the truth at all cost I have been completely turned around. So even if you only reach one person you’ve done more than most, I can’t even imagine I’m the only one so I can not agree with Matt. Also as above it isn’t your responsibility to change people it is their own and if people really really want truth they will meet you halfway. Also don’t you find it interesting about people who throw evolution in everyone’s faces that they never attack science saying more research needs to be done because evolution. Of course not because as established they are not scientist or thinkers, the debunkers and skeptics, but bitter people who have nothing but trying to seem right. I imagine we can’t imagine the amount of money wasted on beating a dead horse from every angle due to science not wanting to rethink theories. Thank you for making people feel so welcome.

    PS For anybody who misses or likes Caleb’s music check out Grimerica 6/23/2013 it was the 5th show and Caleb talk all about the music he likes and how he makes it I really loved it a lot. Also they have a great show with your truly Micah hanks that is top pod as well.
