This week on The Gralien Report, it’s Christmas time (in addition to being a heck of a week for UFO enthusiasts). As we delve into the latest updates on space and science news, we also spend a bit of time looking at the most unusual (and blood-curdling) Christmas traditions, which include mountain trolls, evil entities, and the Sasquatch-like helper of Santa known as “Krampus.” We also revisit one of Micah’s favorite creepy Christmas tales, which involves eerie predictions made about an American singer-songwriter during his Ouija board experience.
Then in the second hour, we cover the bombshell report in the New York Times from over the weekend, which discusses a secret Pentagon initiative called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification program. Headed by Luis Elizondo, the program, which assessed UFO reports and studied the capabilities of these aircraft, ran until at least 2012, when it was defunded. However, the NYT investigation suggests that the program–or at least some variation of it–continues today. Additionally, this report comes courtesy of rocker Tom DeLonge and his “To The Stars Academy,” who have long promised to reveal secret information on UFOs… are they finally beginning to deliver?
We look at the revelations, as well as the political and economic considerations as it relates to UFO research in the 20th century, on this week’s edition of The Gralien Report Podcast.
