    UFO disclosure lobbyist Stephen Bassett joins Gene and Randall to deliver a timely update as to progress in the attempts to get the U.S. government to admit what it knows about the phenomenon. Depending on the results of the 2020 election for U.S. President, just how will the results impact that quest? Will another term for President Trump, or a victory by former Vice President Biden make a difference? Bassett is the executive director of Paradigm Research Group, founded in 1996, to end what he describes as a government imposed embargo on the truth behind the UFO phenomenon. He has spoken to audiences around the world about what he feels are the implications of disclosure by world governments of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.

Why always UFOs?

It seems like 90% of the podcasts are about UFOs. Can you vary the subject matter?

3.14perSlice ,

Commercials, commercials and more commercials

Had to shut it off because there is an absurdly long commercial break every 5 minutes.

Judinez ,

Too many commercials

Interesting guests and an effective interviewer, but the commercial breaks are so intrusive and long they really reduce my enjoyment of the show. In addition, the types of hard sell, high hype (think sham wow type hard sell) advertisers in the show are really annoying.
