Episode Zero Point Five: What We Talk About When We Talk About the UFO Phenomenon

Dec 31, 2017, 05:00 PM

In the first episode of the Our Strange Skies podcast, Rob runs down the basics of the UFO phenomenon, including a working definition, the characteristics of the phenomenon, and the competing theories as to what may be responsible for these objects. He also dives into the contact phenomenon, and the different classifications of these types of encounters. Also, there may be aliens!

*Random Remarks: *

If you couldn't tell, J Allen Hynek is pretty important. This episode is a practical love fest.

I messed up the acronym APRO: It stands for Aerial Phenomenon Research Organization.

I also learned that a group of aliens is known as a buttah.

J Allen Hynek's The UFO Experience.

Hynek's books have started to appear as eBooks in the last couple of years. I highly recommend checking those out.
