4.15.9: Marie Jones & Larry Flaxman on BoA:Audio :: Preview
This episode will be posted on Tuesday evening. I think we'll end up settling in to Tuesdays as the post day for the remainder of the season. Stay tuned to the BoA Twitter feed for ongoing details.
THIS WEEK: Marie Jones & Larry Flaxman, 11:11 The Time Prompt Phenomenon, www.paraexplorers.com
Longtime friends of the program, Marie Jones & Larry Flaxman, return to the show for a raucous edition of BoA:Audio. We'll be discussing the 11:11 phenomenon and the esoteric elements of numbers in general. A sampling of such numerically themed topics include the 23 enigma, the odd popularity of 666 in China, and the remarkable number of religious connections with the number 3. We'll also cover the Pythagoreans, 2012 and other "hot" dates in esoterica, Information Theory, Littlewood's "law" about miracles & numbers, the strange Lincoln/Kennedy connections, synchronicities, and much much more.
The dynamic duo let their hair down and really cut loose during this fast-paced, laughter-filled, and esoterically-rich edition of BoA:Audio that you do not want to miss.
NEXT WEEK: Bruce Rux, Hollywood v. the Aliens, Part One of a Trilogy
In his first interview since 2000, Bruce Rux, author of the mindblowing Hollywood v. the Aliens, joins BoA:Audio for an extended conversation that we're calling "The Rux Trilogy," a three episode arc that totals nearly six hours of material. In Volume One, also known as "The Prelude," we cover Bruce's thesis that the government has been using films and television shows in a concerted effort to shape the public's understanding and feelings on the UFO phenomenon. We'll cover the basic tenets which Bruces believes to be at work with the UFO phenomenon, including ET greys as robots, ancient astronauts, mind control used in abductions, and ancient astronauts. We'll then move into the beginnings of this "education program" with the 1938 Orson Welles' War of the Worlds, the few thoughtful UFO related films of the early 1950's, the wave of silly UFO movies of the mid-to-late 1950's, and the change towards thoughtful TV programming in the early 1960's.
In Volume Two (The Program), to be posted the week of June 29th, we'll continue the timeline and talk about Star Trek, Gene Roddenberry & The Nine, The X-Files, Doctor Who, The Quartermass Trilogy, the James Bond films, and a ton of other sci fi / UFO films as well as how these entertainment offerings fit into the UFO "education program" that Bruce sees at work throughout the last few decades. We'll also discuss how the Jimmy Carter presidency ushered in a whole new era of pro-UFO films, the anti-UFO films of the Carter era, the transition to Reagan as president and how it changed the portrayal of UFOs and aliens in films and TV shows.
In our concluding installment, Volume Three (The Post-Script), to be posted the week of July 6th, we'll wrap up our discussion on Hollywood v. the Aliens and discuss the George Bush & Bill Clinton years, culminating in the publication of Bruce's book in 1997. From there, we'll get some perspective on how things have shaped up since the book came out, what Bruce thinks of a variey of films and TV shows from 97-09 and where he sees things headed into the future. We'll also find out more about where Bruce has been these last 9 years and what he may be working on for the future.
A far more thorough and detailed preview of the complete Rux Trilogy will be posted @ BoA towards the end of the week. Suffice it to say, this is one of the signature interviews for BoA:Audio, Season IV, as we welcome an amazing researcher who has never appeared on a podcast before and hasn't done an interview in nearly a decade.
