This week I was lucky enough to talk with Don Ecker who has been around the UFO field for a very long time. Many will remember him as one of those behind UFO magazine and the host of a number of radio shows dealing with UFOs. Of course, you can listen to the our discussion here:
We did talk about a wide range of topics. One of the interesting subjects was Dr. Eric Davis and Admiral Thomas Wilson who supposedly had a secret meeting a number of years ago. Don added an interesting perspective to this tale. For those interested, you can read more about it here:
I did write more about Davis, but much of it dealt with Davis’ claim that the Del Rio UFO crash was real. If you wish to pursue this line of thought, just type Eric Davis into the search engine and you’ll probably learn more than you care to about Davis and his claims about Del Rio.
Don and I also delved, slightly, into tales of stolen valor and those who claim Vietnam service when it is clear they never served in Vietnam. That, of course led us to Cliff Stone and his somewhat tall tales about his experiences in Vietnam. True, Stone did serve in Vietnam but not the four tours he claimed and it is clear that he was a clerk and not an infantry soldier. Some of that service seemed to be in the theater of operations but might not have been actually in Vietnam.

In the second show, we enter the realm alien abduction, including possible explanations for it and some observations about it. This moves us to Rendlesham Forest and the information provided by Jim Penniston and John Burroughs about their experiences and possible hypnotic and chemical regressions. Terry Lovelace and his experiences are also discussed. I outlined those in UFOs and the Deep State.
In the two shows, we tried to cover some of the aspects of the UFO field as it exists today. We both have military back grounds and both had high-level top-secret clearances so that we can speak was some authority on how those things work. We provide some insights that should be useful to those who wish to engage in additional research. I try to ensure that there is enough information for those others to begin their work.
Next up are Jacques Vallee and Paola Harris to talk about their book, Trinity: The Best Kept Secret. If you have questions, put them in the comment section. I’ll review them and try to get them answered, though I have many questions myself.
