For decades, many people who have claimed to observe UFOs have also said they saw the occupants of these crafts. Even more incredibly, some of these purported "experiencers" have made extraordinary claims about their interactions with such beings, and even abductions where they were taken aboard UFO craft.

How reliable are these claims, the likes of which the late Harvard psychiatrist John Mack attempted to explore and understand until his untimely death? Joining us to discuss the cultural rise of the experiencers is Ralph Blumenthal, a former New York Times reporter and co-author of a 2017 article with Leslie Kean and Helene Cooper that reshaped the modern UFO narrative. Ralph discusses his new book about John Mack, The Believer, and his recent contributions to The Debrief this week on The Micah Hanks Program.
