Episode Six: A Brief History of the Sky Kidnappers

Dec 01, 2018, 11:22 PM

In the 1980s, people started to come forward with their accounts of abduction at the hands, and technology, of alien beings. They were spurred on by one book to share their stories of kidnappers from the sky and the experiences on board their crafts. Communion by Whitley Strieber became a hugely successful book, thrusting alien abduction into the pop culture spotlight. The history of abductions goes back further, perhaps as far back as 1638. It undergoes evolution and transforms time and again, from the partially archaic abduction of Antionio Villas-Boas, to the strange case of Debbie Jordan-Kauble, the subject of Budd Hopkins' book, Intruders, who was implanted with an alien-human hybrid, only to have it removed during the pregnancy. The phenomenon changes. Join me tonight as we take a look at the brief history of alien abductions.
