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 December 30, 2017 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha, hosts of Shattered Reality Podcast, were pleased to welcome Terry Ray, author of The Complete Story of the Worldwide Invasion of the Orange Orbs, to discuss his theories about these orange orbs and the case histories he has investigated. The show started out with Fahrusha discussing the news of purported UFO disclosure revelations by former government operatives. This story is ongoing and we plan to keep on top of it.
Terry Ray is a former military pilot and trial lawyer, a retired law professor emeritus and a certified Field Investigator for MUFON. Terry became fascinated by the orange orbs after a multiple sighting while on vacation in Ocean City, Maryland. His book is divided into 3 sections: maps and statistics, case histories and conclusions. He has also written an entertaining science fiction novel entitled GXM731 as well as other works of fiction. Currently he is working on a new book which will explain his work with photographic evidence of the orbs and the filters he has used with those photographs.
In this episode we discuss Terry’s books, his views on the nature of the Orange Orbs, the source of the orbs and possible beings associated with them. He explains his ideas about the government’s role in disclosure versus “the others” apparently attempting to acclimatize the general population to seeing anomalous lights and craft in the skies of Earth. Overall this episode is thought-provoking and simultaneously entertaining, and while Terry’s theories are speculative they are well thought out and certainly far from impossible.
On October 24, 2017 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha were very pleased to welcome Dr. John B. Alexander back to Shattered Reality Podcast to discuss his new book Reality Denied, Firsthand Experiences with Things That Can’t Happen But Did. This book is an autobiography of many of Alexander’s paranormal experiences and extraordinary events. He is the author of a number of other books and articles including UFOs: Myths, Conspiracies and Realities and is the recipient of awards too numerous to mention.
We spoke about UFOs, trans-species communication with dolphins and unusual human skills including metal bending. The book is filled with fascinating and mind-bending experiences, exotic places visited, and extraordinary people met. But the takeaway is the lifelong quest and metamorphosis of a curious individual who began his career as an infantry private. He rose to Army colonel, received a PhD, became a non-lethal weapons expert and more recently delved into shamanism. John calls for more research into the nature of consciousness and these things that can’t happen but do. He fears that today’s paradigm of materialism keeps young scientists from researching the true nature of consciousness. He encourages more open-mindedness in science and hopes that young researchers will have the courage to explore areas beyond the soul-crushing confines of mechanistic materialism, as have many quantum physicists.
Fahrusha was very happy to welcome David Booher, author of No Return, The Gerry Irwin Story, UFO Abduction or Covert Operation?to Shattered Reality Podcast. Booher has penned an exceptionally well written and well researched book on the extraordinary experiences of an Army soldier in 1959. Before David Booher did his research, everyone in the ufological community thought that Gerry Irwin had completely disappeared. Booher found Irwin, alive and reasonably well in his native Idaho.
While on leave from Fort Bliss in 1959, Gerry Irwin saw an unidentified falling object in Utah during his drive toward his army base in Texas. Thinking it was a plane in the process of crashing he left his car by the side of the road and headed into the bush to help. He was found by a local sheriff face down in the February snow. He subsequently suffered from extreme amnesia and went AWOL on two occasions. Those are the bare bones of the story as described in 1962 by Jim and Coral Lorenzen of APRO (Aerial Phenomena Research Organization). We discussed some of the many details the author was able to ferret out.
In our Listeners Corner, June Ponte, an artist and intuitive from New Jersey, tells us of two UFO sightings she experienced in the Garden State. Co-incidentally Gerry Irwin had been a Nike missile technologist at the time of his initial experience and June Ponte had been protesting nuclear power directly before one of her sightings.
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 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 April 26th 2017, Kate Valentine and Fahrusha were proud to welcome Tom Conwell, author, UFO statistics analyst and paranormal investigator to “Shattered Reality Podcast”.
Tom Conwell has been an Electronic Technician with the US Navy and Honeywell, Inc. for 42 years, a Honeywell Temperature Control, Fire Alarm and Security Software Specialist, Biomedical Engineer, is Fire Alarm Level II Certified, a Meteorologist and HVAC Engineering resource. Tom has a wide-ranging expertise with a keen awareness of physics, computer and internet software and a broad knowledge of electronics and how it intersects with the paranormal world and UFO’s.
Together we had a lively discussion about his collection of UFO statistics for a broad range of states. He began researching in his home State of New York. He has taken a special interest in the number of sightings around nuclear power plants. Tom has written two books on the subject of UFOs and is working on a third. They are entitled THEY Are Here: East Coast UFOs Volume One and THEY Are Here: Central UFOs Volume Two. They are available from both Amazon and directly from Mr. Conwell with free autograph at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below is one of his maps with predominance of UFO sightings clearly illustrated for Eastern and Central USA.
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.
If you would like to participate on Shattered Reality Podcast by recounting a paranormal experience from your life, please contact us on the contact form directly below. We will be happy to hear from you. All responses will remain confidential. To leave a comment about the show use the comments form at the bottom of the page.
Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcome New Realities founder Alan Steinfeld to Shattered Reality Podcast. Our discussion is very wide-ranging and very conversational. We talk about a trip that Alan organized and Fahrusha and a group of merry seekers made to Damanhur, the intentional community in Northern Italy, which focuses on ecology, art and spirituality. We move on to ET experiences and the significance of the experience to the individual and to society. Is there the possibility of disclosure? Are ET experiences transcendent? Negative? The same as spiritual experiences? We probe these questions a bit.
Together we do get into ideas and concepts where we voice opinions and hash it out. It was necessary to clarify terms so that we knew precisely about what we were speaking. It was edifying to note, though we might use different terms we were overwhelmingly on the same page.
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 November 1, 2016 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Dr. Claude Swanson to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. He discusses a number of fascinating phenomena that are not explainable by Western physics and posits an alternative theory of subtle energy and torsion which encompasses his take on the physics of consciousness.
We discuss many topics including time travel, remote viewing, UFOs, psychokinesis, out-of-body experiences and more; all in the context of a different picture of physics. We could have talked to Dr. Swanson for two days straight and still have more topics to cover. Dr. Swanson’s books are The Synchronized Universe: New Science of the Paranormal and Life Force: The Scientific Basis. He is writing a third volume centering on the physics of the soul and the afterlife. His website is http://synchronizeduniverse.com.
Dr. Swanson grew up in Virginia. He studied physics at M.I.T. and went on to get his Ph.D. at Princeton, working with Nobel Laureate Robert Dicke. He did post-graduate work at both Princeton and Cornell. Later he formed his own consulting firm and worked on applied physics projects for a number of corporate and government entities.
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.
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.
On 11-3-2015, Greg Bishop joined Kate Valentine and Fahrusha for a lively discussion about his book, Project Beta, the Story of Paul Bennewitz, National Security, and the Creation of a Modern UFO Myth, and other UFO related topics. Greg is the host of the popular internet radio show Radio Misterioso on Kill Radio Los Angeles. Paul Bennewitz was a brilliant electrical engineer who observed unusual phenomena in New Mexico near Kirtland Air Force Base and Sandia Labs. He believed this aerial phenomena was UFO related. The Air Force Security personnel did nothing to discourage this and in fact fed him disinformation and lies to bolster his beliefs. This led to him being put into a mental institution and entirely ruining his life. Kate and Fahrusha also discuss the general nature of the UFO phenomena with Greg and wonder out loud why many people in the paranormal field have had a childhood interest in sleight-of-hand magic. There is more. Be sure to listen and post your thoughts.
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 September 15, 2015 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Ken Pfeifer back to “Shattered Reality Podcast” to discuss the upswing of UFO and abduction cases in Australia. Please check out Ken’s extensive UFO compilations on his websites.
Later on our faithful listener, Roxan, gives a fascinating account of her UFO sightings and interaction with a very mysterious man in black, that will have your hair standing on end.
On June 10 2015, Kate Valentine and Fahrusha were pleased and excited to welcome John B. Alexander, Ph.D. to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. In the intro to our podcast “paradigm shifting” is prominently mentioned and Dr. Alexander is nothing if not a paradigm shifting individual! His life is so varied and fascinating that it would have taken many more hours to ask him about all of his interests.
Dr. Alexander has written an engrossing book, UFOs, Myths, Conspiracies, and Realities dealing with his adventures in attempting to find out from the inside what the government knows about UFOs. He contends that disclosure has already taken place, UFOs are unarguably real but humanity is asking the wrong questions. His book is comprehensive and well written with a great many dates and details. Dr. Alexander has written a number of other engaging books which can be accessed at his website.
Born in New York, Dr. Alexander entered the army in 1956. He commanded a Special Forces A team in Viet Nam and Thailand and started the Advanced Theoretical Physics Project studying UFOs while still in the Army. After he retired from the Service with the rank of Colonel of Infantry, he worked in the field of non-lethal weaponry at Los Alamos National Labs. He has a Ph.D. in Thanatology, the scientific study of death and the practices associated with it, including the study of the needs of the terminally ill and their families. He is also involved with studying shamanism around the world. There is so much more we would have liked to ask Dr. Alexander. Hopefully he will come back to speak with us again.
Dr. Alexander and Fahrusha at 2016 SSE Symposium in Boulder, CO.
On May 15, 2015 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha spoke with Captain Andy Danziger about airline pilots and UFOs. Captain Danziger has had many years experience as an airline pilot and a flight instructor. He has been a pilot for President Obama and he is a writer on aviation issues for the New York Daily News. His first-hand account of a UFO encounter is unparalleled.
David Biedny contributes an Op-Ed piece about the so-called Roswell Slides. We invite any member of the “Roswell Dream Team” or Jaime Maussen to come on and give a rebuttal.
Please like us here and on FaceBook and on iTunes. Leave us a comment, a question, or suggestion. We will answer you.
Since the airing of this broadcast, Captain Andy Danziger has passed away. We here at Shattered Reality Podcast mourn his loss and send our sympathies to his loved ones.
On February 20, 2015 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha spoke with David Biedny about the nature of the paranormal. David, author of the very first Photoshop handbook, is a digital imagery expert having participated in the making of the original Photoshop program. He teaches at an Ivy League University and has had
a podcast and radio show on Rockland World Radio called the Angry Human. He was co-host for the first four years of the Paracast. But most importantly he is an experiencer of a wide variety of paranormal phenomena.
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.
On January 10, 2015 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed mathematician and aerospace engineer, Robert Schroeder, who wrote a book about the physics of UFO propulsion called Solving The UFO Enigma: How Modern Physics is Revealing the Technology of UFOs. In this episode we speak with Bob about some of his psychic experiences and about how he thinks the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland may help to prove his interesting theories about the physics of UFOs, other dimensions and other Universes. .
On December 12, 2014 we interviewed Mack Maloney a highly prolific author of military fiction, who as written two very accessible books about UFOs: Beyond Area 51 and UFOs in Wartime. Now we are happy that you will be able to hear this lively discussion we had about the books and related subjects. We welcome your comments.
