Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth - Dr. Avi Loeb...This is My Alien Life!!
In late 2017, scientists at a Hawaiian observatory glimpsed an object soaring through our inner solar system, moving so quickly that it could only have come from another star. Avi Loeb, Harvard’s top astronomer, showed it was not an asteroid; it was moving too fast along a strange orbit, and left no trail of gas or debris in its wake. There was only one conceivable explanation: the object was a piece of advanced technology created by a distant alien civilization. Dr. Avi Loeb is the Frank B. Baird, Jr., Professor of Science at Harvard University. He received a PhD in Plasma Physics from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel at age 24, and led the first international project supported by the Strategic Defense Initiative, and was subsequently a long-term member of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton. Dr. Loeb has written 8 books, including most recently, Extraterrestrial which is available now for order on Amazon. He has hundreds of papers on a wide range of topics, including black holes, the first stars, the search for extraterrestrial life and the future of the Universe. He had been the longest serving Chair of Harvard's Department of Astronomy, Founding Director of Harvard's Black Hole Initiative and Director of the Institute for Theory and Computation within the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. He serves as Chair of the Board on Physics and Astronomy of the National Academies. In 2012, TIME magazine selected Dr. Loeb as one of the 25 most influential people in space and in 2020 he was selected among the 14 most inspiring Israelis of the last decade.

Cosmic Ancestry: Panspermia and the Origins of Life | MHP 01.18.21.
What are the origins of life on Earth? Did the building blocks for life originate here, or did they travel to our planet in the distant past from someplace further out in the cosmos? On this week's edition of The Micah Hanks Program, we explore the idea of panspermia or "cosmic ancestry," which supposes that for life to exist on a planet like ours may rely on extraterrestrial factors. We also look at ideas about whether aliens might already recognize that we exist but choose not to communicate with us, or even whether alien life may already exist right here on Earth.

152: The Fairy Coffins
In the summer of 1836, a most bizarre discovery was made in Scotland.  Amongst the rocky crags of Arthur’s Seat, several young boys stumbled upon oddly placed slabs of stone on the hillside… Curious, they moved the stones, revealing a small cave. Inside, lain neatly in rows were 17 miniature Coffins. Their contents have led to wild speculations, but their true purpose, and creator, remain unknown to this day.

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 106 UFOs with Philip Mantle
This week, it is a warm return to Ufologist, investigator and publisher Philip Mantle to discuss his latest book, Investigating UFO's: A Young Person's Guide.   Philip has over 40 years of experience and has utilised this knowledge in his book to give anyone new to the subject a solid base of cases to work upon. With the book being split into decades since the 1940's, it offers 3 key cases per decade.   Yet, what sets the book apart is that Philip has re-introduced some cases that had simply fallen off the radar in the world of Ufology in favour of the usual cases we here about over and over again.   As such, we discuss 4 of the cases in the book, two of which are personal favourites, the incredible experience of the Knowles family incident that occurred on a drive across the Naribor plain in Australia in 1988 and the Reverend William Gill's frankly remarkable case from Papua New Guinea in the late 1950s.   We also look at the case of Maurice Masse and his missing lavender and the terrifying experience of Mary Morrison in Scotland from 1996. You can find more about the cases we discuss on the links below:   The Knowles family   Reverend William Gill   Maurice Masse   Mary Morrison   Flying Disk Press can be found here:   Thank you as always to Philip for joining me today.   Our Patreon is now live, with bonus content, early release of the regular show, articles and monthly prizes for everyone who signs up!
