Extreme Thinkers/ UFO History & Sightings
First Half: Journalist Jamie Bartlett joins George Knapp to discuss the strange worlds of the innovators, disrupters, idealists, and extremists who think we can do better, and believe they know how. From the Islamic State to transhumanists, from followers of Bernie Sanders, Beppe Grillo, and Jeremy Corbyn to citizens of Liberland, the world's first libertarian nation, all these groups are grappling with very real problems in our society - their methods may be extreme, scary, or outlandish, but Bartlett argues that they must be taken seriously.
3rd Hour: On June 24, 1947, Kenneth Arnold, an experienced private pilot, saw nine unusual objects flying at an extraordinary speed near Mt. Rainier in Washington. The incident was the origin of the phrase "flying saucers," and started a worldwide fascination with UFOs. Over the years, skeptics have offered no less than 14 explanations for what Arnold saw. Now world-renowned UFO researcher Bruce Maccabee provides the most complete analysis ever attempted on this case.
4th Hour: UFO researcher Cheryl Costa presents data and analysis for 100,000+ sightings of unidentified flying objects reported by individuals during the first 15 years of the 21st century in a new desk reference book. She'll discuss how the government has claimed no interest in the subject and the press either ignores or ridicules any mention of UFOs, while citizen scientists and non-governmental organizations have continued the research.
