Ep 115: Cosmic Watergate: The Roswell Incident Just A Story: Urban Legend Podcast

 

When looking back to the Roswell Incident, it isn’t hard to imagine a cowboy with a thousand yard stare sitting next to his old friend with wraparound eyes surveying a southwestern scene, and saying, ‘So, this is where it all started.’. You see, once upon a time, in the lonely New Mexico desert all those years ago back in 1947, a flying saucer crash landed on a ranch. At least that is what the ARMY press release stated. It’s easy to see the how a UFO incident outed by the military would stick in the popular imagination. But was Roswell always the legend that we know today? Well, that’s kind of a funny story. Join us this week as we explore the way that the events in Roswell, New Mexico transformed from the death-knell for the ‘Flying Disc Craze’ to the lynchpin for all those who want to believe. ??
