On episode 99 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, MJ Banias returns to talk about his new book, The UFO People: A Curious Culture. Part narrative journey and part cultural study, it's a challenge to the UFO subculture and the broader public to recognize that UFOs, and the people who study them, challenge societal norms, institutions, and ideology. The UFO phenomenon, real or not, abandons us to a ghostly realm where nothing should be taken for granted. Take a journey into a curious culture and meet individuals who have been reshaped and changed by the impossible. Meet the UFO people. Guest Bio: MJ Banias is an educator, writer and blogger. He was a former field investigator with the Mutual UFO Network, has been featured on multiple podcasts and radio shows, and contributes to Mysterious Universe and RoguePlanet. His work has been included in Fortean Times, FATE Magazine, and in a book entitled UFOs: Reframing the Debate. He is the author of The UFO People: A Curious Culture. He lives in Canada with his wife, two children, and a massive cat. To learn more, visit: Patreon: To watch ROSWELL: MYSTERIES DECODED for free, CLICK HERE  Website: YouTube Channel: CLICK HERE Official Store: CLICK HERE Order Ryan's Book by CLICKING HERE Twitter: @SomewhereSkies Instagram: @SomewhereSkiesPod Opening Theme Song, "Ephemeral Reign" by Per Kiilstofte SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES is part of the eOne podcast network.
