Earth has managed to avoid another cataclysm… in the hours just prior to this week’s broadcast, a city-block-sized asteroid came flying past our planet in the space between terra firma and our lonely lunar satellite. There was never any apparent danger posed by this object, however, and hence we’ve been able to bring you yet another week of weird news from beyond the fringe, live via our bunker in the depths of the Hollow Earth.

The Gralien Report Podcast for November 9th, 2011 (Click Here to Launch Player)

On this week’s show, we discuss the exopolitical efforts of those who have recently attempted to get the U.S. Government to release information about UFOs and aliens. Were the efforts squelched due to government secrecy, or was it really simply a matter of not phrasing the question properly? We also touch on spontaneous re-growth of gigantic severed limbs, Presidential UFOs, mind control, Almas (or the “Russian Bigfoot”), and whether the Patterson Gimlin film that purportedly documents a similar creature here in the U.S. was a hoax… all this, and more, along with some enlightening reading material for all the show note-connoisseurs among you.

That huge asteroid sure came awful close

    It’s great that you guys took interest in the Zana story. Re. the death of her first offspring due to ‘genetic incompatibilities’, what I read on some books that mentioned the story, was that those first Almas-human babies died because Zana took them to the nearby river to bathe them; exposing a newborn to near-freezing waters would be totally unthinkable for a human mother, but maybe this is customary among her ‘people. So who knows? *if* the story is true, then it would mean Zana’s children weren’t as physically robust as purebred Almas.

    That said, the books do tell that Zana’s son was incredibly strong by human standards. He also had darker skin and an irascible temper, so the villagers made sure NEVER to make fun of his odd origins.

    Like Micah said, these stories seem to fit more in the category of folklore than fact. But we should be mindful that modern anthropologists have slowly accepted the possibility that our early ancestors interbred with other relic hominids.
