Marty had so much material prepared that this is the first in a two-part series, the second of which will be released next week as Episode #214. We recorded both episodes in one sitting. Lots of excellent material, as usual, fascinating stuff. This time we tried something different; Russ did all the reading of Marty's prepared material, like a normal book report, allowing Marty to guide the conversation through both his written material and with further comments and responses to questions from us.
As this is the first in a two part series, there isn't actually much mention of "UFOs" in this episode....that will come in the next episode as we reach the conclusions of this part of Marty's research. This episode sets the stage for what we will be exploring next week, as we look at a series of historical accounts and events starting with John Dee and his Enochian Magic, and ending with Jack Parsons, L. Ron Hubbard, and Aleister Crowley and the Babylon Working.
