I will be a guest on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory this Monday on Sep. 28. Here's a preview.

These investigators - among them futurist Mac Tonnies, archaeologist Joel Palka, science writer and adventurer Jeff Warren, magician Jeremy Bennett, and musician Tara Slone - confront unearthly mysteries with a clear and critical eye: Have extraterrestrials visited this planet?
