Jacques Vallee...Whitley Strieber...Free PDF quarterly magazine... So many reasons to join Paratopia today!
We've had some great shows in the past but starting right now, they get greateriest. This week's show is spectacular. The guest is legendary ground-breaker, Jacques Vallee. Just diving into the deep questions with this man is show enough, but we go a step further. In fact, we guarantee you will not hear another interview with Jacques Vallee like this!
Dr. Jacques Vallee taught us how to think outside the box even with an outside the box subject like UFOs. With his new book Wonders In The Sky, he does it again. In this interview with the man himself Paratopia follows suit. Stepping outside the box of podcasting, Jeff & Jer bring Wonders In The Sky to life through readings by voices in and out of ufology eager to welcome Dr. Vallee back!
He was the star of our first episode. Now he's the star of our 91st episode! Whitley Strieber returns to talk about some ways in which we can investigate alien abductions that don't involve hypnosis. You will hear details of his own hypnosis experience that you have never heard before. But, of course, when you have Whitley on a show you can't stay on topic for long--There's just too much to discuss! This is another can't-miss episode.
... in other news ...
Jeremy Vaeni has been named as the official screener for all things paranormal for Electric Literature. This is a big deal because they are recording stories from notable people, artists, performers, and organizations and pinning those stories to an interactive, publicly accessible, online map of our world. Accessed via the internet, or an iPhone/iPad/Android application, users of the service will be able to experience their world through the voices, anecdotes, and histories of those individuals who’ve helped to shape it.
They are currently working with a wide range of individuals and cultural institutions including comedians Michael Showalter and Dave Hill, editors from OUT magazine, storytellers from The MOTH, and the Steven Spielberg-founded Shoah Foundation. And... Jer. Cool. Spielberg's in good company. The application is slated to launch in December.
So again, why is this a big deal?--Because assuming you trust Jer's judgment, this means there will be a mainstream outlet for true (or at least plausible) ufological/paranormal stories that, for once in the history of humankind, will not contain C-R-A-P!
