Beyond UFO entertainment to real information
I like this podcast, and not just because I am on Episode 1. It's not the usual gullible woo-woo approach to UFOs. They take the subject seriously, and are not out to entertain, but inform and engage. Science and evidence count a lot more than stories and spookiness. Ethical investigation requires lots of work and attention to detail, so they drill down. We know that most UFOs are misperceptions or hoaxes, but no one knows what all UFOs are, and the only way to find out is do the work. I only expect this podcast to get better.
I found this podcast on a Google search for new shows to listen to. I find the whole thing fascinating! I was a listener for about a year when I heard they were looking for more investigators to join up. So I applied and now I get to fully participate in the case files!
