Recently, CIA officer Chase Brandon claimed he had seen evidence while working for the CIA that Roswell was an extraterrestrial event and that bodies were recovered. Since the publishing of the story in the Huffington Post, it has made worldwide headlines. The CIA has unsurprisingly denied these claims. We will bring together Huffington Post writer Lee Speigel (who broke the story), Roswell researcher and nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman (who broke the Roswell story in the 80s), and UFOs and government expert Grant Cameron to discuss Brandons clams. Cameron along with other researchers wrote the CIA and received the denial.
Robert Powell is the Director of Research for the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON). He has performed hundreds of investigations and along with Glen Schultz put together the Stevensville radar report.

More recently Robert has just finished, along with a few other researchers, a book on the history of governments and UFOs. It is packed full of photographs and official government documents. The books is about to be released and is available for pre-order. We will talk about the book and much more.

This is an exclusive interview with Leslie Kean and Jose Lay, the Director of International Affairs for Chile's official UFO investigation organization, CEFAA. The Committee of Studies of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena (CEFAA) is an arm of Chiles version of the FAA. They have been busy for decades investigating high level UFO sightings, many by the military, commercial pilots and control tower operators. As an official organization, CEFAA tries to keep a low profile and rarely grants interviews. However, at the request of Leslie Kean, author of the book UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On the Record, they are allowing Jose to speak with us. This is a first for U.S. radio. This interview is a rare glimpse into the inner workings of CEFAA and their outreach program to work with the governments of other countries to investigate the UFO Phenomenon.

Robert Schroeder is the author of the book: Solving the UFO Enigma: How Modern Physics is Revealing the Technology of UFOs. In it, he explains how the technology behind the UFO phenomenon can now be explained by modern physics and by a close examination of the more credible UFO reports. The idea that a subset of all UFO reports represent advanced craft of extraterrestrial origin has been around for a long time. But only recently has the science of physics developed theories which, when correlated with selected UFO data, point directly toward a likely explanation of this alien technology. Robert recently retired after 26 years with a major computer company where he was involved in operations and product management. His educational background includes a BA in mathematics, an MBA and an associates degree in aerospace engineering. He has closely followed developments in modern physics over the years and has researched the UFO phenomenon since the 1960s.
