Peter Robbins
LIVE UFO Jam Session
2 Hours, 3 Minutes

Acclaimed UFO researcher, author, and lecturer as well as longtime friend of BoA:Audio, Peter Robbins, returns to the program for a LIVE edition of Season 8. In this fast paced two hour conversation, we cover everything from how Peter first got interested in UFOs back in the late 1970's all the way up to his role in this year's Citizen's Hearing on Disclosure.

Highlights: We begin by getting an update on what Peter has been up to since his last appearance on BoA:Audio and he tells us about his presentation at the Experiencers Speak Conference as well as a recent trip to Rome for a Wilheilm Reich conference. The Reich discussion continues as we learn about his research and how it appeared to alter the weather and seemed to attract UFOs.

We then revisit Peter's origin story as far as UFO research goes and he recounts the incredible story of how, in his late 20's, he suddenly remembered a vivid childhood UFO encounter that he and his sister experienced as teenagers. From there, we get Peter's excellent advice for newcomers to the field of UFO research and what they should strive to do as well as avoid as their work evolves.

Next we talk about Peter's participation in the Citizen's Hearing on Disclosure this past April, we revisit his paper regarding the dangers of UFO disclosure and religious fundamentalism, and we muse about how the ridicule factor continue to stymie UFO media coverage. Peter also talks about the new UFO Truth magazine and his recent article which takes Steven Greer to task for making ludicrous proclamations about aliens.

The episode also includes Peter's thoughts on the science v. activism schism in UFO studies and a caller who asks about the falling out that happened between Whitley Strieber and Budd Hopkins. And, closing out the program, Peter preview the New England UFO Festival taking place on October 26th in Leominster, Massachusetts.

This interview was recorded live on 10/15/13.
