Do some children possess the ability to recall memories that fall beyond their own living experience? If so, where do these memories come from, and could they be related to phenomena recognized by various cultures throughout history such as reincarnation, which involves the idea of the rebirth of a soul into a new body? Joining us to discuss scient…
 
According to a recent bombshell New York Times article, the United States military has found "no evidence that aerial phenomena witnessed by Navy pilots in recent years are alien spacecraft," but adds that the Department of Defense "still cannot explain the unusual movements that have mystified scientists and the military," nor can it rule out the …
 
For many decades, stories about large apelike creatures in the remote forested regions of America have persisted. Commonly known as Sasquatch or Bigfoot, many would rule out the possibility that a creature so large and similar to humans could have evaded detection by humans, let alone exist in the modern world at all. Is this prospect really so unl…
 
"What is true, and I'm actually being serious here, is that there are, there's footage and records of objects in the skies, that we don't know exactly what they are." These were the words of former U.S. President Barack Obama recently, when asked about UAP during an appearance on The Late Late Show. "We can't explain how they moved, their trajector…
 
Since its first airing in 1968, 60 Minutes has been a television news magazine broadcast that looks at many of the most pertinent issues happening in the world. However, on Sunday it made history with the airing of a special segment that looked at one of the most perplexing mysteries of modern time: unidentified aerial phenomena. “I'm not telling y…
 
In recent days, the Department of Defense Office of the Inspector General has announced the launch of a formal evaluation into The Pentagon and its actions regarding “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” or UAP. “We may revise the objective as the evaluation proceeds, and we will consider suggestions from management for additional or revised objectives,"…
 
In September 1967, a 3-year-old Appaloosa named Snippy was found dead in the San Luis Valley. Although the incident involved a horse, it would mark the beginning of the cattle mutilation mystery that has endured for almost 50 years; but are all such incidents easily explained as natural deaths and the result of animal predation? Joining us is Chris…
 
What is the "Deep State," and does an unelected, bureaucratic element exist in government that has actively worked to suppress information collected about UFOs? Joining us this week to discuss this is Kevin Randle, author of more than 120 books, including his latest offering, UFOs and the Deep State: A History of the Military and Shadow Government'…
 
In the early 1950s, the Office of Scientific Intelligence at the CIA almost recommended that the UFO issue be elevated to the National Security Council and be tasked as an Intelligence Priority. However, the effort was aborted with the convening of the CIA-sponsored Robertson Panel in 1952… but why? Joining us to discuss this is Larry Hancock, a gr…
 
In the summer of 2019, several incidents occurred off the southern California coast involving Navy destroyers that were approached repeatedly by unusual, triangular-shaped drones which hovered over the ships. Recent investigations by a number of researchers have revealed new details about the incidents, and what the government response to them had …
 
In 1965, astronauts with the Gemini IV mission orbiting Earth spotted something unusual in one of the planet's hottest and most arid regions. The mysterious "Eye of the Sahara" is but one of many anomalies that have been spotted on Earth from space, and in recent decades, satellites have brought the general public into the search for such curiositi…
 
In 1956, one of the most widely-regarded UFO incidents in history occurred over airbases in the eastern UK, where unusual objects were both tracked on radar and also pursued by pilots. Even the famous Condon Committee's investigators appeared to be perplexed by the incident, which depicted one of the most widely-discussed cases involving UFOs on ra…
 
On a Sunday afternoon over Greene County, New York in 2015, a pilot encountered something unlike anything he had ever seen before in the sky, or anywhere else. The object, which appeared to be a bright, shimmering dome under which protruded a pair of antennae, sped toward his aircraft at incredible speed, nearly colliding with his plane before asce…
 
It was once the nexus of culture and knowledge in the ancient world… a center of the arts and intellectual development unlike any seen before the Hellenistic age. Though arguably, there is nothing that the ancient city ever boasted that quite rivals the mystique of one of its most famous destinations, and one of history’s greatest lost treasures: t…
 
During the summer of 1946, one year before "flying saucers" began making headlines in America, a wave of sightings of strange "ghost rockets" were reported over Sweden and other Scandinavian countries. The reports resulted in an official inquiry by the Swedish military, and the cause behind the sightings remains unsolved to this day. Joining us to …
 
In the summer of 1947, "flying saucers" became all the rage in the United States... but unexplained encounters with strange, unidentified aerial phenomena were nothing new in other parts of the world; especially in the United Kingdom. Years before his wartime service as Prime Minister, Winston Churchill had taken interest in reports of unusual "Sca…
 
North Carolina legends tell that for decades - and perhaps centuries - residents around the vicinity of Morganton and nearby Appalachian mountain communities have observed strange lights hovering over the mountains. Known as the Brown Mountain Lights and named after the long, flat ridgeline made famous by their appearances, many have sought answers…

It is the long-sought prize of every serious UFO investigator: physical evidence left behind by a UFO. For decades, reports involving physical substances produced by various kinds of aerial phenomena have existed, and yet no verifiable traces of UFO physical evidence have ever been recovered from observations or alleged landing sites that might off…
 
On April 26, 1890, an Arizona newspaper called the Tombstone Epitaph carried a very unusual headline. "Found in the Desert: A Strange Winged Monster Found and Killed on the Huachuca Desert" had been the sensational headline, which introduced the story of a group of cowboys who shot and killed something monstrous in rural Arizona. Or so the legend g…
 
For decades, many scientists and laymen alike have sought answers to the longstanding mystery of UFOs. While much headway has been made, scientific investigation of this phenomenon has yet to gain mainstream acceptance; but what does the data from collected reports say about the legitimacy of UFOs, and whether there is merit to their study? Joining…
 
If alien life were ever to visit our planet, or even just our solar system, what might it look like? What form would it take, and what would be their reasons for coming here? More importantly, would we even recognize them, or realize they had been here at all? According to NASA, “The first known interstellar object to visit our solar system, 1I/201…
 
What are the origins of life on Earth? Did the building blocks for life originate here, or did they travel to our planet in the distant past from someplace further out in the cosmos? On this week's edition of The Micah Hanks Program, we explore the idea of panspermia or "cosmic ancestry," which supposes that for life to exist on a planet like ours …
 
For centuries, stories have persisted about lost civilizations, mysterious islands, and ancient peoples whose innovations have been forgotten by time. Arguably, the most famous example involves the fabled Atlantis, which has remained a curious footnote in history since the philosopher Plato first discussed it in a pair of incomplete manuscripts, Ti…
 
It is a question that has long haunted humankind: are we alone in the universe? Since early times, humans have wondered about "others," and mythology from around the world has passed down tales of strange, alien visitors and their wonderful - and at times frightening - technologies, which are often seen as being more akin to magic. Today, scientist…
 
2020 was a significant year, and in more ways than one. As the world fought the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, there were nonetheless many advances in science, as well as notable historical events that included the Pentagon's authorized release of Navy videos purporting to show unidentified aerial phenomena or UFOs. As we look back on the last…
 
By January 1953, dramatic events had brought the CIA and UFOs - a topic the agency had little desire to commit to having involvement with - to a gridlock. Following widespread sightings around the country, and even over Washington, D.C., the intelligence community was beginning to look seriously at what UFOs might represent and whether they might p…
 
On the morning of July 16, 1945, the world changed forever. On a remote test site in the New Mexico desert, a group of scientists gathered and watched the first atomic explosion, and humankind's entry into the Atomic Age. It has long been argued that the beginning of the UFO phenomenon coincides with the arrival of nuclear weapons at the end of the…
 
In 1948, a TOP SECRET document was produced by the U.S. Air Force which made surprising conclusions about the possible origins of unidentified flying objects, or UFOs. Because of this, all copies were ordered to be declassified and destroyed, leaving none in existence today. It is but one among many long-sought documents produced by the United Stat…
 
Many futurists believe that we will go on to create technologies far more the likes of science fiction than what we recognize today as science fact... perhaps even resembling what we call UAP or UFOs. Within the next century, possible innovations in artificial intelligence may reshape the world as we know it, and eventually, humans could even devel…
 
For centuries, humans have wondered whether alien life exists on other worlds. Today, astronomers agree that in the coming decades--perhaps within some of our lifetimes--we will discover alien life in some form. But if it ends up being intelligent, will humankind be capable of communicating with them? To know the answer to this begs further questio…
 
During the Cold War, U.S. Intelligence agencies learned that the Soviet Union was funneling large amounts of funding toward unlocking mysteries of the human mind. This prompted similar efforts on part of the United States, eventually culminating in the CIA's Star Gate remote viewing program. Could psychic phenomena really be used to gain intelligen…
 
It was the most high-profile case involving a hacker in the history of Britain, and at the time the story broke, one of the biggest stories in the UK, if not the world. Gary McKinnon, a Glasgow-born computer programmer, was arrested at his apartment flat in Wood Green, north London. The charge: hacking United States military computer systems within…
 
Some of the most famous minds of the 19th century became swept up in the allure of Spiritualism and mediumship. No less among these had been Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who became one of the staunchest defenders of Spiritualism, even authoring a two-volume history of the religion. However, his friend Harry Houdini, while initially open to the possibili…

This episode is filled with memories of our Brother T, funny stuff and hopefully gives you an escape from this horrible year. Sit back, grab your tissues and be pre…
 
It was an Autumn afternoon like any other. The date was October 24, 1961, and Joan Carolyn Risch had just returned with her daughter from shopping after a dentist's appointment earlier that day. Her husband Martin had traveled to New York on business, leaving at home Joan alone while her infant son slept upstairs, and her daughter Lillian played ac…
 
The Second World War had barely ended by the time reports of "flying saucers" began to make headlines in 1947. What were these mysterious objects, and were they friends, or foes? Soon, speculation about what world superpower might possess such technology shifted to a novel proposition: what if they could be evidence of extraterrestrial visitation t…
 
At the height of the Cold War, the entire world was on edge. Desperate times often lead to desperate measures, and during this tense period, the Central Intelligence Agency began a program aimed at testing to see if the human mind could be controlled. They aspired to become "mind hackers," and the program that resulted was Project MK Ultra, one of …
 
Some have called it the “ultimate” Cold War-era urban legend. It is a story of two space programs: but rather than those of Soviet Russia and the United States, this tale involves the theory that apart from Russia’s “public” program, there was much that it also kept hidden away in the world of black projects. During the early years of the Space Rac…
 
Last week, the search for extraterrestrial life got quite a boost after a team of researchers announced that they may have discovered signs of life on one of Earth’s nearest and least hospitable neighboring planets, Venus. It would be ironic if we were to discover the likely presence of life on such an otherwise inhospitable world, especially since…
 
On Monday, Oct 22, 1973, the Ohio Lancaster Eagle-Gazette carried a most unusual headline. “Helicopter Nearly Tangles With UFO” the story read, which recounted a harrowing tale of an Army Captain, Lawrence Coyne, and three other servicemen who had the fright of their lives a few days earlier, while flying back to Cleveland after a routine medical e…
 
In 1958, a series of large, human-like footprints were discovered by employees at a California logging site. A casting of one of the prints was made by the man who discovered them, Jerry Crew, who took his unusual find to a local newspaper... and an American legend was born. However, decades later it was revealed that one of the men overseeing the …
 
In 1970, zoologist and popular author Ivan T. Sanderson wrote, "it may come as somewhat of a shock... to learn that, by actual count, over 50 percent of all so-called 'sightings' of UFOs have occurred over, coming from, going away over, or plunging into or coming out of water. That this fact is known to officialdom is manifest from their official p…
 
In November 2006, something odd appeared in the late afternoon skies above one of the world’s busiest airports. More than a decade later, no simple explanation exists for what had been observed by a crew staff at O’Hare International Airport, which was described by those who saw it as a circular or disc-shaped object hovering over Gate C17. The sto…
 
This week on The Micah Hanks Program, after news and a segment that takes a deep look at what is currently known about the DoD's recent announcement about its UAP Task Force, we turn our attention to the efforts of the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies, an organization comprised of scientists, former military, and others from various disciplines…
 
It was the summer of 1967, and Jacques Vallee was feeling troubled. A young French computer scientist living in America, Vallee had been tasked with one of the most unusual jobs anyone could imagine: assisting astronomer J. Allen Hynek with the review of reports collected by the United States Air Force about unidentified flying objects. It was also…
 
During the 1960s, American author and UFO researcher John Keel had a problem: it involved reports of Men in Black, the mysterious strangers in dark suits said to appear after UFO sightings and intimidate witnesses. So who were these ominous observers of the UFO phenomenon? Could some of them have been government agents—possibly investigators with t…
 
"For more than a decade," reads the latest in a series of New York Times articles on UFOs that have appeared since late 2017, a shadowy Pentagon UFO program "has been conducting classified briefings for congressional committees, aerospace company executives and other government officials," according to officials and documents associated with the pr…
 
In December 1967, Maryellen Kelley felt an electric shock go through her body as she stood outside her home in Mohomet, Illinois, watching an orange UFO pass overhead. She was later stricken with a headache, and the skin on her hands, face, and legs reddened as if burned. In October 1973, trucker Eddie Webb was blinded for several days after a brig…
