6.22.9: Bruce Rux (Vol.1) on BoA:Audio :: Preview
This episode will be posted on Wednesday evening, sorry for the slight delay. Stay tuned to the BoA Twitter feed for ongoing details & surprises.
THIS 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 discuss 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 a Mars connection. 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 1952 D.C. Nationals UFO flap, the wave of silly UFO movies which began in 1953 ("coincidentally" right after the Robertson Panel), and the change towards thoughtful TV programming in the early 1960's.
This is truly 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.
NEXT WEEK: Bruce Rux, Hollywood v. the Aliens, Part Two of a Trilogy
The Rux Trilogy continues into our middle installment as we continue our marathon coversation with Bruce Rux, author of Hollywood v. the Aliens.
Here, in Volume Two (The Program), we'll 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, and esoteric films and how these entertainment offerings fit into the UFO "education program" that Bruce sees at work throughout the last few decades. We'll find out if there were similaries or differences in how the UK and the US handled UFOs on film & TV and also how the entertainment coming out of Japan reflected their take on UFOs.
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.
