Gene and weekly cohost J. Randall Murphy present Dr. Richard Bonenfant, a retired medical research scientist who’s career specialized in the study of birth defects in newborn children. He has been a research associate with the Albany Medical Center Hospital in Albany, New York, a medical epidemiologist with the New York State Birth Defects Institute, and a research scientist with the Division of Environment Epidemiology at the New York State Department of Health. Richard has also authored four books and participated in interviews where he has talked about the darker aspects of unexplained phenomena: animal mutilations where there are no traces of a perpetrator. Some reports documenting these strange events date back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and were reported by legendary anomalist, Charles Fort. He has also written a paper on NDEs.


AFTER THE PARACAST

- Exclusive content for Paracast+ subscribers

Available exclusively for Paracast+ subscribers: Gene is joined by weekly cohost J. Randall Murphy and special guest Tim Beckley as Tim remembers an indirect encounter with notorious conman Bill Knell, and how he tried to rip off a motel where the former was holding a UFO convention.

The state of the book business is discussed as the crew talks abut the high price of the third edition of Jerome Clark’s “UFO Encyclopedia,” which is produced by an educational book publisher.

The conversation soon moves into reports of hostile UFOs, which are described in Tim’s recent book, “UFO Hostilities and the Evil Alien Agenda,” where episodes of possible unfriendly acts by UFOs are described. There’s also a brief discussion of incidents involving possible spontaneous human combustion.
