In this three part series THE YEAR OF THE UFO we’ll explore the huge number of UFO events that took place in the United States in 1952, beginning with the #BraxtonCountyMonster incident in Flatwoods, West Virginia on Sept. 12th, 1952 and then looking at the previous days and weeks to determine the many factors that led to that unique close encounter between a tall robot like alien and 12 very scared witnesses.

This episode includes portions of interviews with Frank Feschino, Stanton Friedman, and Ivan Sanderson, two of which we provide links to below, along with links to Frank Feschino’s and Stanton Friedman’s Amazon book pages.
