This week on The Gralien Report, a meteor impact that occurred recently near a US base in Greenland has caused a flurry of attention after scientists reported the incident earlier this week, though it remains unacknowledged by military officials. In other news, the death of Art Bell shocked many of us who are fans of late nights and radio journeys into the mind; however, the autopsy results were revealed last week, and with them, new questions about the final hours before Bell’s passing.
Also in news relating to radio hosts, over the weekend a number of major content platforms online imposed bans on the podcasts and other content of Alex Jones, following Apple’s decision to remove five of Jones’ podcasts from its Apple Podcasts directory.
Shifting gears, we then take a look at some fun instances where famed physicist Richard Feynman discussed flying saucers and ESP in his public lectures, as well as why some theories aren’t “good theories” just because they’re hard to disprove.
Then in hour two, we are joined by researcher Bernie Taylor, author of books like Biological Time and Before Orion, which explores possible connections between European cave art and ancient mythology. Taylor discusses his interpretation of various instances of cave art from the ancient world, and how it might relate to mythologies that appeared much later in various cultures. Fundamentally, questions pertaining to the origin of myth are explored, as well as the question as to why there are similarities between many motifs that appear in world mythologies.
