    HALLOWEEN SERIES | Houska Castle: The Gateway to Hell

    HALLOWEEN SERIES | Houska Castle: The Gateway to Hell

    In this special Halloween season bonus episode, Ryan brings us just outside the North of Prague in the Czech Republic, to a 13th century castle with an ominous and extremely dark history. Houska Castle wasn’t near any water, wasn’t strategically important, and didn’t seem to have anyone living in it. So why was this random fortress built? According to local legend, below the stone floors of the castle's chapel, was a dark, seemingly endless pit that was literally a gateway to Hell. Throughout its time, the castle housed poets, Swedish warlords, and perhaps most notably, the Nazi regime. Said to store thousands of books on the occult, the Nazi's were rumored to practice alchemy and occult-like practices for over a decade in Houska Castle. We hear the mysterious history behind this enigmatic castle and its unique design said to have been built not as a fortress to keep danger out, but to keep danger... and demons inside.

    Blue Book with Michael Avon Oeming

    Blue Book with Michael Avon Oeming

    On episode 234 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we welcome Michael Avon Oeming. Oeming is a comic book artist and writer, currently working on a comic book series based on the files of Project Blue Book. "Blue Book" will recreate stories of real UFO encounters in comic book form, based on the true-to-life testimonies of UFO witnesses with the goal of not sensationalizing or editorializing those accounts. The first chapters explore the circumstances surrounding the 1961 abduction of Betty and Barney Hill. Oeming will discuss the series, his research process along with writer, James Tynion, and we'll hear about Oeming's other exciting projects both past and present, and why he believes the U.S. Government is getting involved with UFOs once again in a capacity that even outweighs the original Project Blue Book.

    The 1952 UFO Invasion: Then and Now

    The 1952 UFO Invasion: Then and Now

    On episode 233 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we are revisiting one of the most interesting and prolific years in UFO history: 1952. UFOs were being sighted all over the United States, with a concerning wave occurring above Washington D.C, specifically over the nation's Capitol building. Jets were scrambled to try to identify these luminous objects to no avail. Meanwhile, strange saucers and discs were being reported on the other side of the country in California in great numbers. But one of the most underreported events happened to Captain John Harter and his B-29 Bomber crew off the Gulf of Mexico in December of that year. Captured on radar and visually, he and several other pilots and officers would report a swarm of UFOs surrounding their aircraft, with some sort of massive mothership seemingly watching from above. This incident, and several others of 1952 and 1953, would be documented and investigated by Project Blue Book, and also by independent researcher and former Marine Corps Naval Aviator, Major Donald Keyhoe. We explore these dramatic close encounters and near misses that military aircraft had with these strange objects, how the U.S Government handled the situation, and how it all may be changing as we head in to a new decade of military and governmental acknowledgement and disclosures of UFOs, somewhere in our skies.


    This episode was co-written and co-researched by Marcus Lowth. It was inspired by his article, The Mothership-Rendezvous Over The Gulf Of Mexico – The B-29 UFO Incident. Read the original article at: www.ufoinsight.com

    Trail of the Saucers

    Trail of the Saucers

    On episode 232 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Bryce Zabel returns to discuss all the latest UFO news, including the development of a permanent UAP office within the Department of Defense, the scientific endeavors being undertaken by various organizations in relation to UAP, and the stunning accuracy in which Zabel's 2010 book, A.D. After Disclosure, mirrors what we are seeing play out in 2021 in relation to possible UFO disclosures. Then, Zabel and Ryan reflect on the 60th anniversary of the Betty and Barney Hill Incident, the 25th anniversary of Zabel's NBC television series, Dark Skies, and Zabel's personal thoughts and theories on the UFO phenomenon. Zabel then takes your listener questions and teases all his upcoming Hollywood projects involving all of what is discussed in this jam-packed episode and beyond.


    Guest Bio: Bryce Zabel is a winner of the prestigious Writers Guild award for screenwriting. He has created and produced five prime time television series, including fan favorites like NBC’s UFO thriller "Dark Skies" and the TV adaptation of "The Crow", and worked on a dozen TV writing staffs (i.e. "Lois & Clark”, "Steven Spielberg’s Taken"). He was the first writer since Rod Serling elected to serve as Chairman/CEO of the Television Academy. He has taught screenwriting as an Adjunct Professor at the USC School of Cinematic Arts, reported on-air as a CNN correspondent, and won multiple awards for investigative reporting for PBS.

Exceptional UFO content

Ryan is amongst the best in this space. His voice, diction and breadth of knowledge on the subject of the phenomenon is second to none. I truly appreciate his contribution to all of us who want to know more…and who continue to seek the truth.

Great interview with Mick West

As a skeptically-minded longtime listener with an interest in the UFO phenomenon, I’m glad Ryan brought Mick West on so listeners could at least hear his perspective directly and judge for themselves. (Personally I find most of his explanations pretty convincing). Great podcast overall, keep it up.

Aging like moldy cheese

Let’s restore the grown up conversations you may have had before. Picking people off the street nowadays. My goodness. What happened? Repeat of the same unoriginal crap over and over. A shame.
And enough of the background music during the ENTIRE podcast
