On February 12, 2019, Fahrusha was happy to welcome Greg Bishop and Adam Gorightly, authors of the entertaining book named A is for Adamski: The Golden Age of the UFO Contactees. The contactees are people who claim (largely) benevolent contact with the denizens of flying saucers. Their heyday was in the 1950s, but there were alien contactees before Roswell and after the fifties into the current period.
The book is arranged alphabetically by the person and there is a photo for each entry. There is a kitsch element to these photos that is definitely entertaining and fun. We spoke extensively about the reality or lack thereof of these experiences. I tried to make a possible connection between alien contactees and near death experiencers and to a lesser extent remote viewers.
There are many overlaps between different people in the book as some of them knew one another, especially those that gathered with Adamski and VanTassel at Giant Rock in the southern California desert over the years. There are also many questions about the honesty of some of the most notorious of the people profiled, but by and large, most were sincere. It must be understood that what ever they encountered had to be processed by the reducing valve of their brains which may have overlaid the experience with something familiar or understandable to them.
Kudos also to Douglas Curran whose photos inspired the book.
Errata: The high profile near death experiencer Fahrusha referenced but whose name she couldn’t remember is Anita Moorjani. Her experiences are representative of those of many of NDEers.
On June 12, 2018 Fahrusha and Kate Valentine were happy to welcome Rich Martini, who both wrote the book FlipSide and made the film “FlipSide”, which examine the phenomena of life between lives, wherein people visit a spiritual realm between physical lives to evaluate the past life and plan the next life. The person whose work this film and book concentrates on is the late hypnotherapist Dr. Michael Newton, who passed away in September 2016.
In the years since his making the film “FlipSide” Rich Martini has branched out into after-death communication. However for this podcast he demonstrated with Fahrusha how the life between lives process might work. This demonstration was a total departure from our usual programming. Rich is extremely enthusiastic and upbeat. Fahrusha verifies that she had seen what might amount to her “Council” in a stadium-like setting on several deep meditations at the Monroe Institute and elsewhere. We at SRP would like to know what our listeners think about the process that Rich Martini took Fahrusha through. She did exactly what he told her at the beginning and said the first thing that came into her mind. Does this constitute proof? Our jury is out. We would like to know your opinion on this.
Fahrusha found out about Life Between Lives therapy through a client who was quite taken with it. Several years ago she read one of his books and listened to an audio from the Michael Newton Institute and she thought the idea was fascinating but frightening. She didn’t want to die and have to go to school in the afterlife. She didn’t want to come back to play parts on Earth. Having studied the works of Robert Monroe rather thoroughly, she worried that if she might be caught in what Monroe called “the belief system territories”. That references the idea that one goes to the place that one believes in after death.
In addition to FlipSide, Rich Martini’s books include It’s A Wonderful Afterlife Volumes I and II, and Hacking the Afterlife.
We were thrilled that Rich Martini came on our podcast to explain the whole process to us and as Kate Valentine opines “We are all dying to find out.” 😉
On May 8, 2018 Fahrusha and Kate valentine welcomed Avrel Seale, a seasoned writer who lives in Texas and has an abiding interest in Sasquatch (also known as Bigfoot). A father of three Boy Scouts, he is an avid and observant hiker. He believes he has found substantive evidence of the creature in Sam Houston National Forest an hour north of Houston. For his fiftieth birthday he decided to hike the full length of the Lone Star Trail by himself in search of the elusive hominid. His book Monster Hike: A 100-Mile Inquiry Into the Sasquatch Mystery (Anomalist Books) chronicles this adventure. In addition to Bigfoot he has written about the history of the area and the other natural features and creatures that abound there. If you are planning on looking for Sasquatch or Yeti, I recommend that you read this book before setting out. It is also of great interest to hikers or would-be tenderfoots like me. His eclectic blog, “The Trailhead”, is at avrelseale.wordpress.com.
Stephanie Quick graced our “Listener’s Corner” with some paranormal experiences of her own. She has had an interest in the weird and paranormal since she was a little girl, and (in her own words) “common sense has yet to prevail”. Stephanie reveals her Near Death Experience and a missing time episode in Northern California.
On April 24, 2018 Fahrusha and Kate Valentine were pleased to welcome Terry Lovelace, alien abductee and author of Incident at Devil’s Den to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. Terry’s story is so remarkable that we gave him a whole lot of room to tell his story. We’d like to have him back to answer our questions and any questions our listener’s would like to ask. Regretfully we lost Kate Valentine’s connection about 20 minutes into the show.
Terry Lovelace saw several UFOs as a child and saw grey alien beings in his childhood bedroom. After he joined the Air Force in the ’70s he worked as a medic. He and another medic and a number of other Air Force personnel witnessed an unknown diamond-shaped craft hovering over a missile silo one freezing night in Missouri. Two years later he and his medic friend went on a camping trip to Arkansas’s Devil’s Den National Forest. There they witnessed a huge triangular craft hovering over a meadow where they had set up camp. The craft sent down laser like beams of light which appeared to inspect them. They retreated to their tent where they fell unconscious and woke up later to see the craft depart the meadow.
Crying and terrified, they got in their car, leaving behind all their camping gear. They drove back to the Air Force base with great haste, stopping only for beverages to slake their overwhelming thirst. Upon return, they were both hospitalized with skin burns and photophobia, an abnormal intolerance to visual perception of light. They were also separated and forbidden to interact with one another and one another’s families.
Subsequently, Terry was questioned by Air Force OSI officers under the influence of a truth serum-like drug. More recently he discovered a metal object in his knee along with several other objects through a series of x-rays at a veteran’s hospital. The metal object was later removed by the beings that put it there.
Terry Lovelace is a lawyer and former Assistant Attorney General of both Vermont and American Samoa.
On February 13, 2018 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed prolific author Preston Dennett to Shattered Reality Podcast. He has written twenty books on paranormal phenomena mostly about UFOs. Preston belongs to that group valuable chroniclers who is an ethnographer, in that he writes down the accounts of people as they tell him their experiences. People all over the world have unexplained encounters with non-human entities. Often these incidents are scoffed at because they seem extraordinary and they cannot be proven to those who haven’t experienced them. And yet these encounters happen all the time to otherwise “normal” people all over the world since the dawn of written history (and probably before, if we are to believe petroglyphs). In fact they are the basis of most of the world’s religions!
The ten people Preston writes about in his book Inside UFOs: True Accounts of Contact With Extraterrestrials are ordinary Americans, from housewives to engineers to former Navy sailors. None were seeking publicity or riches. What I found amazing was that not all of them were scared out of their wits by their experiences as both your friendly co-hosts were during their encounters. I dounderstand not being frightened by anomalous lights in the distance, but when one has a non-human entity in one’s home, well that’s panic time for me. Where my thinking leads me on this is that something happened to these ten individuals. If it happened to someone else, their mind might interpret it differently because it is in some way beyond everyday human experience, beyond ordinary human perception and understanding. Who or what is behind these encounters with non-human intelligences remains totally unknown.
We also spoke briefly about another of his books The Coronado Island UFO Incident. Preston is currently at work on several new books.
On September 28,2017, Kate Valentine and Fahrusha were proud to present Dr. Irena Scott, author of UFOs Today, 70 Years of Lies, Misinformation and Government Cover-Up, to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. Her book is a compendium of many years of research into the UFO phenomena. An Ohio native, who has worked for the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Battelle Memorial Institute as an image analyst, she has a very impressive educational background including a BS from Ohio State University, an MS from the University of Nevada, and a PhD from the University of Missouri in the Department of Veterinary Medicine. Her post-doctoral studies were done at Cornell University. She also has been a case investigator for the MUFON. Add to that her proximity and frequent visits to Wright Patterson Air Force Base, which is purportedly where the remains of alien visitors and crashed alien craft are taken, and you have the makings of some astonishing reports that Dr. Scott got directly from witnesses.
We explore her impressions of what she thinks are the origins and purposes of those non-human intelligences which have been recorded since the dawn of time, but more specifically in her book, since the famous Kenneth Arnold sighting in 1947. Included in our discussion is the fascinating and heretofore under-reported Coyne helicopter case, which is one of many such cases featured in her book.
In our “Listener’s Corner” we feature well-known NYC artist Anthony Santuoso who speaks about two family members’ experiences with UFOs and his father’s near death experience. Anthony is a painter in the style of Magical Realism, a founding member of the seminal co-operative Bowery Gallery in Manhattan, and a current instructor in the Fine Arts Department of the Fashion Institute of Technology.
On November 8, 2016 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke to Shattered Reality Podcast. She has written three books on American Indians and their experiences with Star People and Sky People. They are Encounters With Star People: Untold Stories of American Indians, Sky People: Untold Stories of Alien Encounters in Mesoamerica and More Encounters with Star People: Urban American Indians Tell Their Stories.She is also the author of twelve charming children’s’ books and the best-selling academic text: Sisters in the Blood: The Education of Women in Native America.
It was a pleasure to speak with Dr. Clark about the many experiences she has personally chronicled through direct meetings with American Indians of many different tribes. Star People are part of the oral history of many indigenous peoples in North America and around the world. Those who are interested in ufology from a Euro-Centric point of view would be well advised to consider a slightly different perspective. It is fascinating how the actual experiences are quite similar but sometimes the experiencer’s frame of reference and cultural context molds what he or she takes away from the contact with the Star People.
On March 31, 2016 Mary Rodwell of the Australian Close Encounter Resource Network joined Kate Valentine and Fahrusha for a fascinating discussion about the meaning and effects of alien communication. She has interviewed thousands of experiencers and believes that each individual is the final expert on their own experience with the “others”, whether they be extraterrestrial, spiritual, or inter-dimensional beings. She also has an avid interest in the new generation of children who are experiencers. She has written a book, Awakening, How Extraterrestrial Contact Can Transform Your Life.
Mary Rodwell is a member of The Foundation for Research Into Extraterrestrial Encounters, also known as FREE. We at Shattered Reality Podcast have interviewed a number of FREE’s members including Kathleen Marden.
During the podcast we also hear from Diane, a listener, who had an experience of instantaneous teleportation.
Ron Felber, author of the Mohave Incident, joined Kate Valentine and Fahrusha on October 6, 2015 for a fascinating discussion of alien abduction in the Mohave Desert. In 1989 a young couple with two small children decide to go on a carefree camping trip leaving the kids behind with their grandparents. What ensues is an absolutely terrifying ordeal in which these young adults are literally tortured by non-human entities. This is a case that will have you questioning what is real and what is unreal and the assumptions we make about the nature of the world in which we live.
On February 13, 2015 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha had the pleasure of interviewing the famed humanoid investigator Albert Rosales. Albert’s site is www.ufoinfo.com/humanoid and it is very fascinating. He has been collecting humanoid reports since his days of military service. It contains over 17, 000 sighting reports from around the world. They are cross cataloged by both year and type of sighting.
