1.26.8: BoA:Audio update &
Ahoy hoy, my friends. Yes, it is my birthday. I'm an old fuck now. Forgive me if I start to forget stuff or develop incontinence.
BoA:Audio returns next week (2.2.8)
The 2.2.8 guest will be UFOMystic's own Greg Bishop. We'll be doing an in-depth look @ 2007 in Ufology, from the O'Haire story in January of '07 to Japan's UFO "disclosure" in December of '07 and all the big stories in between. This is definitely a loose edition of the show, more like a conversation, where Greg and I give some big picture analysis to the top UFO stories of 2007 and what they really mean in the long run for the UFO scene. Plus, at the end there is some discussion on Lohn John Nebel and contactees. In total, the interview runs well over 2 hours, so it's a big one and the perfect episode to kick off the 2nd half of Season III.
I was weary of doing a 2007 recap episode, but then searched around online and couldn't find any good '07 Ufology recap, at least from the perspective that I wanted to tackle, so I think this episode will be enjoyed by UFO aficionados who listen to BoA:Audio.
After the 2.2.8 episode, we already have a bunch of new stuff taped, including a couple of interviews dealing with esoterica's field du jour: ghost hunting. We'll explore this red hot genre with a science based ghost researcher and an A-list name in the ghost field. Despite not being a huge fan of that aspect of esoterica, I enjoyed both interviews immensely and we really took a nice look, from afar, at what has become esoterica's break-out field over the last few years.
In addition to that, we've got a massive interview with a fairly new player on the international UFO scene. This guest will be giving his first ever American interview. Chances are that you haven't heard of him yet, but I'm hoping that this interview will help to establish him on the American Ufology map. As an added teaser, I'll say that the interview establishes a BoA beachhead on a whole new continent, where we have yet to venture in our quest for global esoteric guests.
Plus, we've got an assload of interviews that are in the finalization phase, so I expect to be taping pretty regularly for the next month, at least. More details to follow in the days and weeks to come.
binnall on Spooky Southcoast
As mentioned last week, I was an in-studio guest on the Spooky Southcoast radio show, which emanates from WBSM, here in Massachusetts. Having done all my previous interviews on podcasts and running my own podcast, it was nice to see "how the other half lives" and the inner workings of a terrestrial radio show.
You can find my appearance, complete with MP3 download and Streaming Audio capabilities HERE. I was only on briefly @ the beginning of the show and then quite a bit during the 2nd hour. My good friend Chris Balzano was also a guest.
I should also mention that I spend some time this past month giving the SSC website a complete makeover and trying to develop into a more user-friendly site, with a completely work-able archive (something they didn't have before) and MP3 downloads for each episode. So if you check out the site, you'll probably notice a heavy BoA influence, since I am the one who designed it.
BoA:D.C. is coming in February
I don't have too much to report about our exciting new project, BoA:D.C., except to show off the logo. I expect to really be diving into work on it this coming week, so we should have more info soon. I can say that it will be cool and it will be unveiled in February at some point.
Not much else going on, really. I want to give kudos to the great BoA staff who have been doing the bulk of the updates @ BoA this month while I have been working on gathering up new interviews for BoA:Audio. Lesley, Khyron, Regan, Tina, and our newest columnist Richelle, have been rolling out some awesome material week in and week out. You definitely want to check out their columns @ BoA.
I'm looking forward to the return of Lost on Thursday. I probably won't have the detailed "Lost Thoughts" that I did last season, but I may find a way to slip some thoughts onto the blog somewhere.
Till next week when the show resumes, this is binnall wishing you a great week and signing off.
