On the evening of October 11, 1973, co-workers 42-year-old Charles Hickson and 19-year-old Calvin Parker told the Jackson County, Mississippi Sheriff’s office they were fishing off a pier on the west bank of the Pascagoula River in Mississippi when they heard a whirring/whizzing sound, and saw two flashing blue lights and an oval shaped object 30–40 feet across and 8–10 feet high. Parker and Hickson claimed that they were “conscious but paralyzed” while three “creatures” took them aboard the object and subjected them to an examination before releasing them. Gene and Randall present Calvin Parker to discuss this experience and another, 20 years later, as told in his book, “Pascagoula — The Closest Encounter: My Story.


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.
