Below is last month's episode of ParaReality Radio, which aired on March 1, 2019.
Late last year, the two major online sites for reporting UFO - MUFON and The National UFO Reporting Center - both documented steep drops in worldwide UFO sightings. The decline started around 2014, when reports were at a peak. They have since reduced drastically, to 55% of 2014's total. Many UFO interest groups have folded and numerous previously classified government documents have been disclosed. In 2014 global UFO sightings totaled 8,670, but the latest numbers, which are current up to June, 2018, show global sightings are only 1,329.
While both MUFON and NUFROC take online reports of sightings, MUFON field investigators investigate reports and attempt to filter out hoaxes, mistakes, and objects that can be identified. MUFON winds up clearing out about half of the reports that people submit.
Do these declines reveal that interest in UFOs is becoming nothing more than a blip on the human cultural radar? Perhaps UFO and alien lore is seeming more like a reflection of human culture, tied to the space age, motivated by conquering new existential frontiers.
Possible answers as to why sightings are decreasing are varied. A key factor may be that people simply just don't care anymore. There are also those who believe that the culture around alien investigations has shifted to focus on exopolitical conspiracies instead of what's in the sky. In my opinion, the ideas of conspiracies have infiltrated and warped the idea of actually investigating UFOs.
Maybe our time for sighting UFOs is up. Maybe the aliens have learned all they can from us, or maybe their experiments are over, or maybe they have simply lost interest in us. Or maybe, just maybe, people are using the internet as their means of reporting sightings these days instead of turning to those "official organizations." That's my theory, anyway. While reporting may be on the decline, I believe that the sightings are not. We're still being visited and our anuses are still being probed. We're just using other means of reporting it these days. What do you think?

Turn On, Tune In & Find Out!
On the second Monday of every month you'll be able to listen to one of my old shows back when I was on Live365. These shows will be replayed in order starting with the very first show. I hope that you enjoy listening to these old broadcasts. Crop circles have been appearing in grain fields all over the earth during the last few decades. They appear suddenly, usually at night. At first they were simple circles of bent-over grain stalks. Soon a new crop of more elaborate designs evolved - geometric forms reminiscent of profound mathematical theorems.
Some say that these diagrams must be created by intelligent alien beings from elsewhere. Even though these diagrams must be constructed in a very short timespan, the genuine crop ... See More circles never show any serious mistakes or blunders of execution. Investigators see this as evidence that the aliens must be very intelligent and much more advanced than we are. That's mere speculation, of course.
There are those crop circles that are made by human hands - pranksters who are seeking fame or just want to create something artistic. However, all crop circles can't be explained away as being man-made. Some designs are too complicated to be made overnight by a few people stomping on wooden blocks in a wheat field.
This brings up the question of who really made them? Was it really aliens? Did humans really do all this? Was it some kind of as yet unexplained natural phenomenon? I'll be taking a look at all these as I investigate the mystery of the crop circles on this episode of ParaReality Radio.
By now, I was closing in on the first season of ParaReality Radio. I had really gotten into my groove by now and had established the flow of the show and myself as a serious broadcaster.
This episode originally aired on Live365 on 11/27/2004.
Turn On, Tune In & Find Out!
Every third Monday of the month I will present a replay of ParaReality Radio from the time that I spent on local Nashville radio station, WRFN. Some of the episodes have been lost, however I have managed to find about half of them and I will present them here, in order. I hope that you enjoy them.
Once again, this isn't an episode of ParaReality Radio. This is an interview that I did on Paranormal Nashville, which was a talk radio show that was very similar to mine. It was hosted by Tony Pratt, who ultimately became a very good friend of mine. It also aired on WRFN.
I don't know the date this episode originally aired. In it, we talked about how I got into the paranormal, how I got involved in radio and some of my paranormal experiences.
This episode originally aired on WRFN some time in 2005 or 2006.
