On episode 03 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan brings up a recent New York Times article that actually takes the UFO topic seriously. It features the recent release of The U.F.O Sightings Desk Reference, a compendium book created and published by Cheryl and Linda Costa. Ever wondered what type and how many UFOs are reported in your state, city, and town? This book will definitely satisfy your curiosity.

Ryan then speaks with Greg Eghigian, Associate Professor of Modern History at Penn State University. They dive deep into a paper Greg has had published, titled, Making UFOs Make Sense: Ufology, science, and the history of their mutual mistrust. The conversation moves to examining the historical and cultural impact the entire UFO phenomenon has had and the influence that sub-culture brings to the topic. They end the conversation detailing some exciting work Greg will be doing in Washington D.C. as the Charles A. Lindbergh Chair in Aerospace History. While there, he'll be researching the history of UFOs and exchanging ideas with colleagues who work in aerospace history. It's a refreshing and hopeful interview for the past, present, and future of UFO research.
Greg's will be giving several talks in London, UK, in early May. For more information, CLICK HERE
