On episode 20 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we take a slight detour from our normal ufological path to bring you a very special roundtable discussion that occurred during the East Coast Paranormal Conference in Liverpool, Nova Scotia on August 11th-13th. Keynote speakers at this conference included Micah Hanks, Greg Bishop, Paul Kimball, and Ryan Sprague.
In this roundtable discussion, the four speakers debrief on the weekend's events, what they each personally presented in their lectures, and their strange experiences while taking part in a paranormal investigation at the historically haunted Queens County Museum.
The four also speak about the many connections that can be made between UFO studies and other paranormal, supernatural, and esoteric topics. It was a weekend for the ages, and an experience all four won't soon forget. Special thanks go out to our gracious host, Paul Kimball, and to the conference organizer, Linda Refuse and the Crossed Over Paranormal Society for having us.
