Fahrusha welcomed Mack Maloney to “Shattered Reality Podcast” for his second interview on our show introducing his new book Mack Maloney’s Haunted Universe. It is a compendium of paranormal and odd stories he has collected over many years and is rather like a Charles Fort book in that he gleaned many of the brief accounts from newspaper reports. He has been a paranormal researcher for quite a few years specializing in he experiences of people in the military, airplane pilots, and clandestine agents. He also has a radio show of his own called Mack Maloney’s Military X-Files also featuring the enigmatic Juan-Juan and the mysterious Commander Cobra.

We spoke about some of his and my favorite accounts from the book and about paranormal portal areas, including a truly fascinating one I’d never heard of in Russia a bit east of Moscow where frequent UFO sightings are the most mundane of all the high strangeness there. We also conversed about everyone’s loss of privacy due to spying equipment being built into all of our consumer goods as well as super spy satellites that can identify minute details from above such as how many buttons there are on the shirt you are wearing. Much of this spying is carried on by corporations to get one to purchase their products.

Mack Maloney has written more than fifty novels including military thrillers, men’s action-adventure, science fiction and historical fiction. Mack is a native of Boston and a graduate of Emerson College. He has also worked as a consultant to a company working for the U.S. government on anti-terrorist programs.

We again missed Kate Valentine on this episode but she wanted me to assure all her fans that she is OK.

#76 Grant Cameron UFOs and Consciousness

Fahrusha was very pleased to welcome veteran researcher in UFOs and consciousness, Grant Cameron. Our guest is someone whose career I have been following for the past 15 years. He is a hardworking, resolute and dedicated researcher from Manitoba, Canada.

Grant began his interest in UFOs in 1975 with his observation of a recurrent UFO called “Charley RedStar” in Carman Manitoba. After that he was bitten by the UFO bug. The Kate Valentine UFO show and Viewpoints with Kate Valentine (the predecessors of “Shattered Reality Podcast”) have archived 3 shows with Grant Cameron which can be accessed at atlanticcoastufos.com by putting his name into the guest selector on the right on the main page.

He researched the work of the late Wilbert Smith who headed the Canadian UFO study Project Magnet. After that he was led to investigate Dr. Eric Walker, and Dr. Robert Sarbacher who he believed were the American keepers of the secret. Following this he founded website presidentialufo.com. He filed freedom of information requests (foia requests), researched across America at the official libraries of past presidents, finding particular interest in connection between the Clintons and the (Laurence) Rockefeller UFO Initiative.

More recently he had what he called a download from a non-human source about the connectedness of everything, the non-physical manifestation of UFOs and the primacy of consciousness.

He has researched the mystery surrounding To The Stars Academy and ATTIP, Bob Bigelow and the Skinwalker Ranch.

He has also written quite a number of books on these subjects including Managing Magic: The Government’s UFO Disclosure Plan and Charlie Red Star: True Reports of One of North America’s Biggest UFO Sightings.

#73 Calvin Parker & the Pascagoula Incident

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcome Calvin Parker, the gentleman who was abducted with the late Charles Hickson by unknown beings in Pascagoula Mississippi. With us also was Terry Lovelace, a very informed abductee and previous guest, to ask some additional questions. We are very happy Calvin has come forward with his experience, especially since Charles Hickson has passed away. Now we have another voice out here to explain what transpired in Pascagoula in 1973. The incident was a rather straightforward and classic abduction scenario, but nonetheless fascinating. In his book Calvin also details what he went through after the abduction and the steps he took to try and understand what exactly the reality of these beings and their craft were. No one can ever know what someone else has experienced, but I believe Calvin and Terry are giving their accounts as truthfully as possible. We can learn something about the nature of our place in the Universe from reading their books. We need to be constantly reminded that humans see only a fraction of the electromagnetic bandwidth around us.

Calvin’s book is Pascagoula: The Closest Encounter, My Story, Calvin Parker and Terry’s book is Incident at Devil’s Den. We thank Philip Mantle for his participation in making this show possible. We invite our listeners to share their experiences on the show.

Errata: At the beginning of the podcast, Fahrusha said “Calvin” when referring to Travis Walton, who she refers to as having given an address at the MUFON symposium on July 29, 2018. The correct addresses for our websites are: https://shatteredrealitypodcast.wordpress.com and http://shatteredrealitypodcast.com.

#72 George P. Hansen the Trickster

George P. Hansen, author of The Trickster and the Paranormal.

Fahrusha and Kate Valentine were pleased to welcome illustrious author and paranormal investigator George P. Hansen to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. There was so much to speak about that it was difficult to fit it into an hour and fifteen minutes. Hansen looks at the paranormal from the view of anthropology and skepticism but never debunking. He views many of the phenomena of the paranormal as being affected and sometimes caused by the Trickster. He gives two compatible definitions of who or what the Trickster is, the first of which concerns the folk traditions of many, if not all, indigenous cultures around the world. Some of the famous folk tricksters are Loki of Norse mythology, the Coyote of the American Southwest, Iktomi (spider) of the Lakota and Ananzi (spider) of the Caribbean and Africa. These Tricksters are shapeshifters so they can appear in different guises. In his words “The trickster archetype is not designated by immediately observable physical features.  Rather it is a more abstract constellation of characteristics that is usually personified (i.e., identified with a person or animal).”  His second definition is a bit more ephemeral to explain. It includes many aspects of psi including boundary crossing, irrationality, fakery, change and instability and it is, by its very nature, non-binary.

We tackle many subjects, especially including UFOs. For instance these objects are often seen to be shapeshifting, and some might be interstellar or not, and of course they may have more than one origin and they often appear at times of great change. The purported occupants may lie to humans or their communication may seem absurd or be misunderstood. They often appear to people when those people are in altered states of consciousness, as in the liminal state.

#71 Ball Lightning and UFOs with Dr. Irena Scott

Dr. Irena Scott discusses her new book, Inside the Lightning Ball: Scientific Study of Lifelong UFO Experiences.

Click HERE to listen.

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha enjoyed welcoming back Irena Scott, PhD, to “Shattered Reality Podcast” for our seventy first show. Dr. Scott has written five books and the latest one, Inside the Lightning Ball: Scientific Study of Lifelong UFO Experiences, is autobiographical in that it concerns her own paranormal experiences regarding UFOs, orbs and ball lightning. She wanted to be very clear that when critics and debunkers say that scientists do not see UFOs the critics are misinformed. In the book, she also elucidates why she thinks some people are multiple experiencers.

Irena Scott started having UFO experiences as a young child in a rural farm house when an unknown glowing metallic object flew around the attic bedroom she shared with her sister. Her sister, mother and cousin corroborated the report. She had a bizarre lightning experience in Texas, where she also witnessed what was probably the famous Marfa lights. She had many UFO sightings in Ohio while working for the DIA. She recounted for us a second sighting she had while driving near Boston with her sister. Again her sister backed up the report.

I believe that Dr. Scott is doing a great service by revealing her sightings and experiences. The more credible folks that do this, the less likely experiencers will be ridiculed and maligned because of these events. No longer will scientists fear the loss of their hard-won professional positions. I especially like that she does not speculate overly much on what these phenomena might be. She is confident to say “I don’t know .” when appropriate. For instance, sometimes orbs seem to be related to electrical storms while at other times they seem more related to UFOs or even nature spirits. There is a need for these phenomena to be studied with an open mind by those that haven’t come to a premature conclusion.

#67 Alien Abductee Terry Lovelace

Terry Lovelace

Terry Lovelace, alien abductee and author of Incident at Devil’s Den

Listen HERE

Fahrusha and Kate Valentine were pleased to welcome Terry Lovelace, alien abductee and author of Incident at Devil’s Den to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. Terry’s story is so remarkable that we gave him a whole lot of room to tell his story. We’d like to have him back to answer our questions and any questions our listener’s would like to ask. Regretfully we lost Kate Valentine’s connection about 20 minutes into the show.

Terry Lovelace saw several UFOs as a child and saw grey alien beings in his childhood bedroom. After he joined the Air Force in the ’70s he worked as a medic. He and another medic and a number of other Air Force personnel witnessed an unknown diamond shaped craft hovering over a missile silo one freezing night in Missouri. Two years later he and his medic friend went on a camping trip to Arkansas’s Devil’s Den National Forest. There they witnessed a huge triangular craft hovering over a meadow where they had set up camp. The craft sent down laser like beams of light which appeared to inspect them. They retreated to their tent where they fell unconscious and woke up later to see the craft depart the meadow.

Crying and terrified, they got in their car, leaving behind all their camping gear. They drove back to the Air Force base with great haste, stopping only for beverages to slake their overwhelming thirst. Upon return, they were both hospitalized with skin burns and photophobia, an abnormal intolerance to visual perception of light. They were also separated and forbidden to interact with one another and one another’s families.

Subsequently, Terry was questioned by Air Force OSI officers under the influence of a truth serum-like drug. More recently he discovered a metal object in his knee along with several other objects through a series of x-rays at a veteran’s hospital. The metal object was later removed by the beings that put it there.

Terry Lovelace is a lawyer and former Assistant Attorney General of both Vermont and American Samoa.

#62 Inside UFOs with Preston Dennett

 

Prolific author Preston Dennett, author of Inside UFOs

Click HERE to listen.

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcome prolific author Preston Dennett to Shattered Reality Podcast. He has written twenty books on paranormal phenomena mostly about UFOs. Preston belongs to that group valuable chroniclers who is an ethnographer in that he writes down the accounts of people as they tell him their experiences. People all over the world have unexplained encounters with non-human entities. Often these incidents are scoffed at because they seem extraordinary and they cannot be proven to those who haven’t experienced them. And yet these encounters happen all the time to otherwise “normal” people allover the world since the dawn of written history (and probably before, if we are to believe petroglyphs). In fact they are the basis of most of the world’s religions!

The ten people Preston writes about in his book Inside UFOs: True Accounts of Contact With Extraterrestrials are ordinary Americans, from housewives to engineers to former Navy sailors. None were seeking publicity or riches. What I found amazing was that not all of them were scared out of their wits by their experiences as both your friendly co-hosts were during their encounters. I do understand not being frightened by anomalous lights in the distance, but when one has a non-human entity in one’s home, well that’s panic time for me. Where my thinking leads me on this is that something happened to these ten individuals. If it happened to someone else, their mind might interpret it differently because it is in some way beyond everyday human experience, beyond ordinary human perception and understanding. Who or what is behind these encounters with non-human intelligences remains totally unknown.

We also spoke briefly about another of his books The Coronado Island UFO Incident. Preston is currently at work on several new books.
