Lawrence R. Spencer was the guest on the program this week. As noted in an earlier post, he claimed that a “Roswell nurse” had sent him a package of documents about the UFO crash and her telepathic communications with the alien survivor. You can read that earlier post here:
Although he had said he would send a copy of his book to me, I told him that I already had it and didn’t need it. I did read enough of it to realize what it was, and enough of it to realize that it was not based in our shared reality. I did, however, ask him a few questions to set up the program, or as they would say in the world of courtrooms, lawsuits and legal dramas, to build a foundation. It was also meant to provide information for those who had not stumbled onto this particular nonsense. You can listen to it here:
(Of course, you can access this show and others in the embedded audio player on the left as well.)
He said that he had been sent all these documents about the “nurse’s” role in the Roswell case including the “top-secret” transcripts of her debriefing sessions. He said that he had retyped the documents and published them before destroying them. He said he was afraid of the government targeting him and his family for releasing them… he was afraid these documents had been stolen. He didn’t seem to understand my point that if he had retyped them and published them, he wouldn’t be safe because it proved he had had the documents. By destroying all the originals, he had no way to prove that the documents had ever existed and that he wasn’t just inventing the tale. There was no difference between publishing the originals so that we could see them and publishing his retyped versions of the originals since both could lead to the same place. But without the originals there was no way to verify anything about them.
I also noted that his attempts to vet the documents were nearly nonexistent. He said he looked on the Internet. I suggested that he could have contacted one of the Roswell researchers for help. His excuse was that he simply wasn’t “into UFOs and Roswell,” so he didn’t know about that. I thought typing in Roswell UFO crash would lead to our names… but he avoided all contact. And that tying this to Roswell was a way of drawing clicks to the nonsensical tale.
For those interested, you can listen to the interview and listen to his rather lame attempts to suggest the story and nurse were real. I made it clear that I didn’t believe there was a nurse or any documents. In fact, I suggested a polygraph to get at the truth and the invitation has been sent to him.
Next up is Bill Konkolesky to talk about his book, Experiencer 2: Two Worlds Collide. Should make for an interesting show.
