Fahrusha and Kate Valentine were pleased to welcome illustrious author and paranormal investigator George P. Hansen to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. There was so much to speak about that it was difficult to fit it into an hour and fifteen minutes. Hansen looks at the paranormal from the view of anthropology and skepticism but never debunking. He views many of the phenomena of the paranormal as being affected and sometimes caused by the Trickster. He gives two compatible definitions of who or what the Trickster is, the first of which concerns the folk traditions of many, if not all, indigenous cultures around the world. Some of the famous folk tricksters are Loki of Norse mythology, the Coyote of the American Southwest, Iktomi (spider) of the Lakota and Ananzi (spider) of the Caribbean and Africa. These Tricksters are shapeshifters so they can appear in different guises. In his words “The trickster archetype is not designated by immediately observable physical features. Rather it is a more abstract constellation of characteristics that is usually personified (i.e., identified with a person or animal).” His second definition is a bit more ephemeral to explain. It includes many aspects of psi including boundary crossing, irrationality, fakery, change and instability and it is, by its very nature, non-binary.
We tackle many subjects, especially including UFOs. For instance these objects are often seen to be shapeshifting, and some might be interstellar or not, and of course they may have more than one origin and they often appear at times of great change. The purported occupants may lie to humans or their communication may seem absurd or be misunderstood. They often appear to people when those people are in altered states of consciousness, as in the liminal state.
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 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 January 21, 2018 our guest for this episode took ill at the last moment and we wished him well. So Kate Valentine and Fahrusha decided to discuss their impressions of cryptozoology and the reasons why people in general are interested in the paranormal. Fahrusha related her experience of seeing three unusual black butterflies in three unusual places in one day. (Note: The stopover was at Dulles airport, not Charlotte.) They discussed their ideas about Sasquatch and the unfolding story of possible UFO disclosure by the “To The Stars Academy”. Kate recollected her prior interview with Frank Faschino concerning the Flatwoods Monster.
After sixty episodes, Kate and Fahrusha decided to simply talk to each other. The audio engineer of the show mentioned having seen a large bird with orange skin and a mammalian face. Fahrusha read a very thoughtful letter she had received from listener Freeman about his views on alien intelligence. While not disagreeing with Freeman’s premise both Fahrusha and Kate’s points of view held for wider possibilities, that is, while his model was quite plausible and well constructed, there is room in the Universe for a wider diversity of life. Freeman’s letter can be read below.
Like many others around the US and the world, we here at Shattered Reality Podcast are waiting patiently for the next word from the New York Times via Leslie Kean et. al. or the members of “To The Stars Academy” on what the Defense Intelligence Agency (D.I.A.) and Robert Bigelow might have discovered about the nature of the phenomena in the skies seen by millions of witnesses across the globe since the beginning of recorded history. These sightings have become more intense since the dawn of the nuclear age.
Just wanted to respond to your comment about the way aliens might think…
In essence, biological intelligence exists to direct efficient movement and actions by incorporating sensory input.
From a scientific point of view, logic, reasoning and rationality are universal; as applied to problem solving, investigation and the scientific method for the development of technology and maths based modelling.
However, general ‘reasoning’ as applied by individuals, can often be used to justify any action or behaviour, but may contain erroneous flaws of logic and incorrect assumptions.
To put it crudely, there could be considered a difference in the application of rationality between the ‘architects of technology’ and the ‘users of technology’.
Rational decisions will include statistical outliers i.e. statistically abnormal decision making, considered unethical, irrational or unacceptable by society in general. This overlaps with concepts of justice, legal systems and protecting the public.
Abnormal thinking can result from biological dysfunctions (including genetic abnormalities & brain damage) or learned behaviours.
Biological ET intelligence is likely to arise from universal evolutionary processes. Competition for resources is likely to promote hunting as a ‘winning strategy’, with the consequence of a natural sensory/intelligence arms race.
Individuals within a self aware, technologically developing species will likely continue to exhibit inherited behaviours relating to self-preservation and basic needs, as well as high level behaviours such as altruism. We might also expect aliens to exhibit behaviours relating to intra-species cultures, as well as fill-in-the-gap concepts provided by faith and various religious ideas.
Abnormal behaviours are in some respects statistical, so one day we might define extreme behaviours in terms of the ‘galactic’ norm for rational beings.
Another aspect to consider is learning and education, and the common subjects that any biological ‘alien’ intelligence would teach subsequent generations.
In practical terms, the necessary intelligence, skills and knowledge required to function and thrive in a physical environment (capable of supporting a tool-making species), provide both a common frame of reference for all species and influence cultures and behaviour. There may be more that we share in common, than keeps us apart.
On May 20, 2017, Shattered Reality Podcast travelled to Pine Bush NY for the annual Pine Bush UFO Festival. On this special #50 episode, Fahrusha presents her thoughts on alien (or extraterrestrial) evolution. The fellow asking a few questions is David Biedny, who has been a guest on, and a friend of Shattered Reality Podcast. Kate Valentine can also be heard in the background. In short, Fahrusha asks, “If life is ubiquitous in the physical Universe, might it evolve in similar ways when similar elements are present?” Also implicit in this question is, “What defines life? Is it consciousness or respiration?” These may be impossible questions to answer definitively but they are fun and fascinating to ponder.
On January 31, 2017 Rey Hernandez of FREE, The Dr. Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters was the guest on Shattered Reality Podcast’s 43rd episode. Extensive information about FREE can be found at www.experiencer.org.
Rey is the co-founder of FREE. On this episode he gives us an overview of his many amazing UFO contact experiences. Later he speaks about the mission of FREE, which is deeply involved with the role of consciousness. In addition he shares some of the ongoing projects and research in which the Foundation is involved. There are many consciousness researchers and abduction experts on the Board of FREE including former podcast guests Kathleen Marden and Dr. Claude Swanson. The cofounders include Dr. Rudy Schild, the late Dr. Edgar Mitchell, and our former guest, Mary Rodwell.
FREE invites you to take the survey on UFO encounters on the homepage listed above.
In addition one of our listeners, Gerry, tells us all about a paranormal dream experience she had a few years ago that is very intriguing. And Fahrusha speaks about some dreams she has been having which one of her clients has been having too. See: Dreaming the Dreams of Others.

On September 27, 2016 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Robert Hastings, researcher of incursions by UFOs into nuclear weapons storage facilities, to Shattered Reality Podcast. One of the biggest threats to humanity and the planet is the possibility of the explosion of nuclear weapons on the Earth or in the atmosphere. Since the dawn of the nuclear age in the late 1940s, UFOs have been observed in conjunction with nuclear tests, nuclear research facilities and nuclear missile silos. This situation continues to the current day.
Robert Hastings has been faithfully documenting this phenomena for more than three decades. In many cases the UFOs apparently took the missiles off-line rendering them unable to be fired. In a few cases there were nuclear weapons put into the firing mode causing panic. While Hastings’ research is largely centered in the US, there is documented evidence of incursions by UFOs happening at Russian missile sites as well.
Robert Hastings’ 48-minute documentary film, UFOs and Nukes: The Secret Link Revealed, is available at www.vimeo.com/ondemand/ufosandnukes $4.99 rental; $9.99 to purchase. A generous donation by Jared Tarbell of Etsy.com made the film possible. His book, UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites, is available ONLY at www.ufohastings.com/book for $24.95. Scalpers at Amazon resell it for $75 and up.
To contact Robert Hastings if you are a witness to a UFO at a military site (only) is : firstname.lastname@example.org
Robert Hastings mentioned on Shattered Reality Podcast an article, which is difficult to locate on the Internet featuring ex-CIA administrator Victor Marchetti. It discusses why the ‘Powers That Be’ in various countries which are purportedly officially aware of the UFO secret will never voluntarily divulge it. He also mentions high-level rumors he heard at CIA of crashed UFOs and bodies of “little gray men on ice at Wright-Patterson AFB”.
On 9-13-2016 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha warmly welcomed Lisette Larkins, experiencer extraordinaire and prolific author, to Shattered Reality Podcast. Her alien encounters are numerous and filled with wise advice for those on Earth-plane.
Here at Shattered Reality we believe in giving our guests the podium to express themselves and relate their experiences. We do not criticize the experiences of others that we believe to be expressed honestly from the heart. So kindly suspend disbelief when listening to the real life experiences of a very nice fellow human being. Are you listening, materialistic debunkers and brain as the seat of consciousness advocates? She has come out of these experiences with a great amount of wisdom which rivals many a sage.
Lisette Larkins is the author of five books, the latest of which is Above and Beyond, the Incredible True Story of Extraterrestrial Contact. Lisette had graciously and generously offered to gift three listeners with a three book set of her books which were delivered to our listeners. These prizes were decided by the co-hosts and audio engineer of Shattered Reality Podcast and their decisions are final. Thanks also to the wonderful folks at Rainbow Ridge Books.
Rosalyn Berne’s life has been filled with mystical experiences throughout, but by far her most unusual gift to date has been her ability to communicate with horses. She is in fact a genuine horse whisperer.
On May 13, 2016, Kate Valentine and Fahrusha, both animal lovers and communicators themselves, were pleased to be able to speak to Rosalyn Berne about her unusual gift. What makes Rosalyn different from other animal communicators is her unique ability, on occasion, to elicit complex and abstract thoughts from her equine companions. Most good animal communicators are able to understand the creature with whom they are interfacing well enough to determine the creature’s feelings, needs, likes and dislikes, and their traumas and illnesses. Receiving abstract thoughts about other subjects is highly unusual.
Something that I (Fahrusha) forgot to mention during the podcast is that the word for little horse in Schwitzer Deutsch (Swiss German) is Rösli and the name Roselind refers not to roses in its derivation but to being a horse woman. Coincidence?
She is the author of four books and is working on a fifth. Her two published works on her mystical life and her equine communication abilities are Waking to Beauty: Encounters with Remarkable Beings (2016) and When the Horses Whisper (2014). In addition Dr. Berne is a professor in the field of Science, Technology, & Society (STS) at the University of Virginia.
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.
On January 19, 2016 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha were pleased to welcome Kathleen Marden, who is currently heading MUFON’s experiencer investigations. Marden is the niece of two of the most famous abduction experiencers in US history, Betty and Barney Hill. She, with Stanton Friedman, chronicled their story in the book, Captured, The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience. This book has been optioned for a movie.
Kathleen Marden has written another book, The Alien Abduction Files, with experiencer Denise Stoner. She was the recipient of MUFON’s 2012 “Ufologist of the Year” award.
We talk in depth with Ms. Marden about her research into alien abductions and experiencer reports.
Errata: The author and book that slipped Fahrusha’s mind was John A. Keel and the Mothman Prophesies. Apologies to the late Mr. Keel, as we here at “Shattered Reality Podcast” are big fans.
