Wow, what a great show! i totally had no idea where this was going to go folks, my only notes for this guest were that he had something to do with UFO's or aliens or something like that. As I am sure you've all heard UFO freaks talking in the past, this could go either of two ways; it could go down a super strange rabbit hole of nonsense, speculation, hearsay and allegedly's, or it could go down a scientific path of reason and understanding. I think we managed to walk right down that middle path talking about Advertising, agriculture, food, farming, eating and living healthy, archetypes, the impact on eating strawberries in the winter and so much more leading up to our guests own personal experiences in the unexplained. Ladies and Gents, make some noise, for Ed Roman!
