Jack Brewer, blogger and author of The Greys Have Been Framed - Exploitation in the UFO Community, joins host Paul Carr and panelists Marsha Barnhart, Ciro Villa, James Garrison and Roger and Wehbe to talk about a modern variation on things that go bump in the night - alien abductions, as made famous by Betty and Barney and Hill, Bud Hopkins, Whitley Strieber , John Mack, and David Jacobs.

There was a problem with Jack's connection to the YouTube hangout, and he had to re-enter the room several times. Since this is is an unedited podcast, you get to endure that right along with us, but Jack was remarkably persistent.

We also had problems with James' connection, and he had to kind of type in his comments.
