Fahrusha was very happy to welcome David Booher, author of No Return, The Gerry Irwin Story, UFO Abduction or Covert Operation? to Shattered Reality Podcast. Booher has penned an exceptionally well written and well researched book on the extraordinary experiences of an Army soldier in 1959. Before David Booher did his research, everyone in the ufological community thought that Gerry Irwin had completely disappeared. Booher found Irwin, alive and reasonably well in his native Idaho.

While on leave from Fort Bliss in 1959, Gerry Irwin saw an unidentified falling object in Utah during his drive toward his army base in Texas. Thinking it was a plane in the process of crashing he left his car by the side of the road and headed into the bush to help. He was found by a local sheriff face down in the February snow. He subsequently suffered from extreme amnesia and went AWOL on two occasions. Those are the bare bones of the story as described in 1962 by Jim and Coral Lorenzen of APRO. We discussed some of the many details the author was able to ferret out.

In our Listeners Corner, June Ponte, an artist and intuitive from New Jersey, tells us of two UFO sightings she experienced in the Garden State. Co-incidentally Gerry Irwin had been a Nike missile technologist at the time of his initial experience and June Ponte had been protesting nuclear power directly before one of her sightings.

Dr. Irena Scott and UFO Secrets #55

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha are proud to present Dr. Irena Scott, author of UFOs Today, 70 Years of Lies, Misinformation and Government Cover-Up, to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. Her book is a compendium of many years of research into the UFO phenomena.  An Ohio native, who has worked for the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Battelle Memorial Institute as an image analyst, she has a very impressive educational background including a BS from Ohio State University, an MS from the University of Nevada, and a PhD from the University of Missouri in the Department of Veterinary Medicine. Her post-doctoral studies were done at Cornell University. She also has been an case investigator for the MUFON. Add to that her proximity and frequent visits to Wright Patterson Air Force Base, which is purportedly where the remains of alien visitors and crashed alien craft are taken, and you have the makings of some astonishing reports that Dr. Scott got directly from witnesses.

We explore her impressions of what she thinks are the origins and purposes of those non-human intelligences which have been recorded since the dawn of time, but more specifically in her book, since the famous Kenneth Arnold sighting in 1947. Included in our discussion is the fascinating and heretofore under-reported Coyne helicopter case, which is one of many such cases featured in her book.

In our “Listener’s Corner” we feature well-known NYC artist Anthony Santuoso who speaks about two family members’ experiences with UFOs and and his father’s near death experience. Anthony is a painter in the style of Magical Realism, a founding member of the seminal co-operative Bowery Gallery in Manhattan, and a current instructor in the Fine Arts Department of the Fashion Institute of Technology.

#50 Special! Alien Evolution

Fahrusha presenting a talk at the Paranormal Center at the 2017 Pine Bush UFO Festival

Click HERE to listen.

On May 20, 2017, Shattered Reality Podcast travelled to Pine Bush NY for the annual Pine Bush UFO Festival. On this special #50 episode, Fahrusha presents her thoughts on alien (or extraterrestrial) evolution. The fellow asking a few questions is David Biedny, who has been a guest on, and a friend of Shattered Reality Podcast. Kate Valentine can also be heard in the background. In short, Fahrusha asks, “If life is ubiquitous in the physical Universe, might it evolve in similar ways when similar elements are present?” Also implicit in this question is, “What defines life? Is it consciousness or respiration?” These may be impossible questions to answer definitively but they are fun and fascinating to ponder.

This is a short one, only 22 minutes long!

An article with the same theme can be found on Fahrusha’s blog here(Extraterrestrial Evolution).

#41 Alan Steinfeld New Realities

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcome New Realities founder Alan Steinfeld to Shattered Reality Podcast. Our discussion is very wide-ranging and very conversational. We talk about a trip that Alan organized and Fahrusha and a group of merry seekers made to Damanhur, the intentional community in Northern Italy, which focuses on ecology, art and spirituality. We move on to ET experiences and the significance of the experience to the individual and to society. Is there the possibility of disclosure? Are ET experiences transcendent? Negative? The same as spiritual experiences? We probe these questions a bit.

Together we do get into ideas and concepts where we voice opinions and hash it out. It was necessary to clarify terms so that we knew precisely about what we were speaking. It was edifying to note, though we might use different terms we were overwhelmingly on the same page.

#40 Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke and the Star People

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcome Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke to Shattered Reality Podcast. She has written three books on American Indians and their experiences with Star People and Sky People. They are Encounters With Star People: Untold Stories of American Indians, Sky People: Untold Stories of Alien Encounters in Mesoamerica and More Encounters with Star People: Urban American Indians Tell Their Stories. She is also the author of twelve charming children’s’ books  and the best-selling academic text: Sisters in the Blood: The Education of Women in Native America.

It was a pleasure to speak with Dr. Clark about the many experiences she has personally chronicled through direct meetings with American Indians of many different tribes. Star People are part of the oral history of many indigenous peoples in North America and around the world. Those who are interested in ufology from a Euro-Centric point of view would be well advised to consider a slightly different perspective. It is fascinating how the actual experiences are quite similar but sometimes the experiencer’s frame of reference and cultural context molds what he or she takes away from the contact with the Star People.
