For some time now, Tim, you've advocated for esoterica to get out of it's single topic rut (UFO's, Bigfoot, ghosts, cryptids,etc.) and take a more encompassing view of itself. I am currently reading David Paulides' "Missing 411" series and, well, I keep thinking back to Stan Gordon's "Silent Invasion" and Bruce Rux's "Architects of the Underworld". The lynchpin between all of these books seems to be, IMHO, that in many cases individuals experiencing these events very often are found to be disoriented or at least in an altered state of consciousness brought on seemingly by the event itself. So I think a roundtable discussion on your show amongst several different guests from different disciplines might serve all the disciplines well. I seem to recall that Long John Nebel did this once with Ivan T. Sanderson and several guests back in the day. That seemed pretty healthy to me, though I take issue with how seriously Nebel took the subject matter. That's a minor point considering the era in which the program aired. I think, Tim, you've positioned yourself well and BoA has garnered enough respect amongst researchers that you could 'referee' these folks into putting their best thinking forward for the good of all the disciplines. Maybe you could even have Greg Bishop on as a 'co-referee'. As always, I am a huge fan of the show and I am glad you are doing what you do.
