2.16.8: Cristo Louw on BoA:Audio preview
NOTE: This week's audio will be delayed, just a bit, as I've got a few things going on here on the homefront that have kept me very occupied this afternoon / evening, so our schedule has been pushed up by a day or so. Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience. We expect to post the episode on Sunday night.
THIS WEEK : Cristo Louw from South Africa's UFO Resource
An ultra-ambitious episode of BoA:Audio, as we call nearly 8,000 miles away to Cape Town, South Africa for the first American interview ever by Cristo Louw, head of South Africa's UFO Resource (SAUFOR). Cristo shares a variety of fascinating UFO stories that have happened in South Africa over the last century or so, including key cases like the 1989 UFO shoot down over Botswana and the Bainbridge Incident. We find out about famous South African contactees like Elizabeth Klarer and Carl van Vlierden. We also discuss the history of UFO studies in South Africa and how it compares to its American counterpart. Looking at big picture influences on the field, we discuss the role of the government, the military, and the media in shaping the UFO culture in South Africa.
It's a tremendously educational edition of BoA:Audio featuring a ton of international UFO material from a continent often overlooked in the global UFO picture.
NEXT WEEK: TBA on Sunday
I'm torn on which episode to roll out next weekend, so I'll ruminate on it some more tonight and decide tomorrow evening, when I put together this week's episode. Details will be posted in the usual spot, at the bottom of the 2.16.8 episode page.
