This week on The Micah Hanks Program, we bring news of an exciting discovery: a new species of dinosaur was recently unearthed from the depths… of a museum’s archives. This reminds us of the strange affair of the “Pangboche Yeti Hand,” a portion of which was smuggled out of Tibet decades ago by legendary tracker Peter Byrne, along with the help of actor Jimmy Stewart. The relic met a similar fate, where it languished in a museum archive for decades before its rediscovery.
We then turn our attention to disturbing reports of cattle deaths out of Oregon, which bear all the markings of such “classic” mutilations… apart from the initial reports that indicated the animals had apparently been shot in the head. This was later amended, when further reporting on the strange animal deaths featured supposition by law enforcement that the creatures might have been poisoned, but not by any conventional or unintended means. It’s time that we get to the bottom of the mutilations, the senseless killing of livestock, and the destruction of property that their deaths entail.
Then later in the program, “Russian meddling” is a common term we hear in the news today, many are unaware that for decades, the Russians secretly used the UFO phenomenon as a means to try and destabilize the West. But why did the Soviet Union fabricate tales of aliens and feed them to the Pentagon, and does the UFO meddling still continue to this day?
When it comes to UFOs and espionage, understanding the history of Russia’s involvement from a counterintelligence angle is integral. Joining us to discuss this is Nick Redfern, author of more than forty books that include Area 51: The Revealing Truth of UFOs, Secret Aircraft, Cover-Ups & Conspiracies and his latest book, Flying Saucers from the Kremlin: UFOs, Russian Meddling, Soviet Spies & Cold War Secrets. Nick has appeared on many TV shows, including the BBC’s Out of This World; the SyFy Channel’s Proof Positive; the History Channel’s Monster Quest, America’s Book of Secrets and UFO Hunters; the National Geographic Channel’s Paranatural; and MSNBC’s Countdown. After our discussion with Nick about UFOs and espionage, and the role Russia has played in all of this over the decades, you may never think of the phenomenon the same way again.
