How much more unprofessional can Ufology get?
I took the time to sit through an over two-hour podcast of a UFO personality, interviewed by a UFO personality, neither well-noted in UFO circles and certainly neither known by the public or news media in any way.
I won’t name the podcast or persons involved as they don’t deserve attention of any kind, from me or anyone.
But I will state that if you come across this podcast, you will hear an example of the kind of “madness” that I keep insisting is part and parcel of the UFO community; you will hear a metaphorical thousand “ums,” “I means,” and “ahs” interspersed with insane-like ruminations of a personal kind that indicates, to even those without a psychological background, a kind of subliminal mental upheaval that permeates Ufology and its practitioners.
I’ve been in news media for a large part of my long life, and I did a radio show in Detroit, in which I often interviewed persons.
And while I may have been funky, my guests never were. They were chosen for their ability to speak sensibly and with exquisite enunciation and loquacity.
And all of you have watched interviews with ufological notables on the many cable shows catering to UFOs or the paranormal.
You know that the persons interviewed, often not highly educated, come off as relatively articulate.
But those UFO podcasts we keep getting notices to listen to are beneath amateurish. The one I listened to today [3/31/17] was as awful as one could find.
It’s not that the podcaster hasn’t been doing this for some time. He has. And he was okay, just not smart enough to know that his guest was a dope, about UFOs and everything else he touched on.
Such podcasts further diminish ufology, by presenting the dregs of the UFO community and giving them two hours plus of air-time to spout their absurd and ridiculous ideas, and doing so like an ill-educated bum off the streets of hoboland.
It’s shameful and disheartening to hear ill-prepared and stupid people speaking for the UFO community.
Podcasters: choose your guests wisely, not just because they may be your friend.
