    UFOs Are Real...Probably...

    UFOs Are Real...Probably...

    For decades, Naval officers and Airforce pilots have reported strange--but very very real--encounters with UFOs. These encounters are up close and very personal. Since the Pentagon's inceptions, the government has denied ever looking into these encounters, but that was a lie. And in July of last year, classified documents detailing these encounters and the top-level investigations into them were finally declassified. The stories are amazing and terrifying and tell us what we've always known: UFOs are real...probably.

Excellent Podcast

This is a new favourite of mine. Brought here by TCO, and while very different from their comedy format, Daisy takes you on a fun journey through the episode. Very well researched and delivered

Could easily be so much better

Odd podcast. Discusses interesting topics but the host constantly makes odd digs at culture and people through a modern woke lens. I think these comments are supposed to be funny… they don’t land. She does this in one episode and just ends up being offensive - referring to indigenous people as “brown people”. Oh and she doesn’t understand the difference between Britain and England, laying question to her knowledge and source material.

Fantastic Podcast

Well-written and wonderfully presented. Daisy’s style is so easy to listen to - engaging and smattered with dry humour. Also love the wide range of topics covered. Looking forward to hearing more.
