Both funny and spooky

It’s quite a gripping podcast and really captures the kitsch atmosphere of the alien b-movies of the 50s and 60s. My only quibble is the two narrators reading one sentence each. It’s quite annoying and distracting and seems like they couldn’t decide who would get the plum job of being the narrator so agreed to read one sentence each.

I expected I’d really enjoy this but quickly became bored. A number of the events investigated are ludicrous and are simply about lunatics ‘claiming’ ufo contact. There are many more deserving incidents regarding the ufo phenomenon that would be far more interesting to hear about. The latest concerning channeling lost my interest completely, simple delusional nonsense I have zero interest in. Like a number of commenters I found myself simply not interested in the narrators who are not really engaged in the subject they are being, presumably, paid to read out loud. I’d much rather listen to narrators who have actually researched their topic beforehand rather than just turn up to read a script. Unsubscribed.

Infuriatingly Skeptical

This podcast is REALLY well researched and they approach the UFO sightings from every possible angle.
However, each investigation has an overwhelmingly skewed intent to debunk.
When every Earthbound explanation has been proven wrong, each case remains more likely a hoax (with no further detail) than some unknown phenomena. A UFO podcast, created on the premise, that intelligent life visiting Earth is an impossibility.
