On the premiere episode of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, host, Ryan Sprague, introduces the listeners to the show and then speaks with historian and author, Richard Dolan, about the media and UFOs. They also discuss the possibility and forms of disclosure that may occur in a new American political era, and then they wrap things up by confronting the future of UFO studies.
Richard Dolan is the author of two volumes of history, ‘UFOs and the National Security State’, both ground-breaking works which together provide the most factually complete and accessible narrative of the UFO subject available anywhere. He also co-authored a speculative book about the future, ‘A.D. After Disclosure’, the first-ever analysis not only of how UFO secrecy might end, but of the all-important question: what happens next Richard’s latest work, ‘UFOs for the 21st Century Mind’, provides a fresh treatment of the entire subject. In it, he discusses the important sightings, the encounters, the politics, the cover-up, ancient aliens, the bizarre science, disclosure, and offers advice on being both critical and open-minded in today’s world. Like his previous three books, it asks fresh questions and offers new insights to further our understanding of the UFO mystery.
Richard hosts a weekly radio show, The Richard Dolan Show on KGRA Radio, is a frequent guest on Coast-to-Coast AM. He is currently featured on several television series and documentaries, including Ancient Aliens, Hangar One: The UFO Files, Close Encounters, and UFOs: The Lost Evidence.
Prior to his interest in UFOs, Richard completed his graduate work at the University of Rochester, where he studied U.S. Cold War strategy, European history, and international diplomacy. Before that, he had studied at Alfred University and Oxford University, and had been a finalist for a Rhodes scholarship. In addition to his research, Richard’s company, Richard Dolan Press, actively publishes innovative books by authors from around the world. His website is www.richarddolanpress.com
Somewhere in the Skies: A Human Approach to an Alien Phenomenon
by Ryan Sprague
Ordinary people are seeing extraordinary things in our skies. And while reports of UFOs and their possible occupants are littered with dates, times, and descriptions, they rarely focus on those who’ve actually experienced them. How have these dramatic and often traumatic events affected those involved? Could both the positive and negative implications, whether subtle or revelatory, further our knowledge of what exactly these phenomena represent? Through extremely detailed testimony from highly credible witnesses, including pilots and military personnel, and insight from those in the psychological, academic, and scientific fields, Somewhere in the Skies: A Human Approach to an Alien Phenomenon, is a personal journey that also weaves together a story of stories, furiously pumping new blood into the heart of these mysteries, one inextricable experience at a time.
