Sustain What? UFOs and the Media - Is This Time Different?

May 28, 2021
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Through more than half a century, headlines have periodically filled with accounts asserting that UFOs, now dubbed UAPs (“unidentified aerial phenomena”), are actual alien craft.

Sometimes the accounts are endorsed by high-ranking politicians and intelligence and defense officials. You may have noticed that a new surge is under way.

Is this time different? There's a defense and intelligence report to Congress nigh. Join longtime science journalist Andy Revkin and a great crew of news dissectors: journalist Keith Kloor, (pseudo)science historian Kate Dorsch and Sarah Scoles, author of “They Are Already Here: UFO Culture and Why We See Saucers.” Other guests may join!
