After an unusual series of earthquakes shook the west coast over the last few days, we lead off this week with a look at why some scientists think they’re a bit out of the ordinary (even for an area like Southern California). Also in recent news, President Donald Trump recently addressed the ongoing reports of UFOs by Navy pilots, which one former MI5 employee, Nick Pope, called “refreshing.” However, has anything of substance actually been said on the issue, either by this administration, or those in years past? Then later in the program, we devote a lengthy discussion to one of the most famous–and controversial–home movies ever to be made: the famous Patterson-Gimlin film of 1967, which purportedly depicts a female sasquatch walking near Bluff Creek, California. While debate has raged over the authenticity of the film and its alleged subject for more than half a century, a recent 4K enhancement was uploaded by YouTube user “Bigfoot AI”, which provides some striking new clarity and details. It is only the latest in a long series of digital enhancements that have occurred over the years, but is there truly anything new we can glean about the film, and its controversial subject, after all this time? Whether or not the Patterson-Gimlin film will offer final “proof” of the existence of Sasquatch, perhaps the most compelling thing about it has been the fact that it has never been conclusively proven to be a hoax… although that’s not to say that there are no problems with the story. We take a deep look at the controversy, and the story behind the film, on this edition of the program. Join us and become a member of Gralien X for more great podcasts and bonus monthly specials.
