In 1994 it was not uncommon to see experiencers featured on shows like The Oprah Winfrey Show or Geraldo Rivera. The public attention that the Roswell Crash, Whitley Strieber, Budd Hopkins, and John Mack received pushed the UFO into the mainstream like it had never been before.

In Australia, a country who’s UFO beliefs were very conservative, a story started to spread about a woman who had been involved in a multiple witness abduction. He name is Kelly Cahill.

Kelly’s story is one fraught with religious symbols, terrifying entities with glowing red eyes, and a less than stellar husband who mocks her endlessly for opening up about her experiences. I’m joined by Tom G. Wolf of Lupine Transmissions to unpack the story of Kelly Cahill.

Special thanks to Amber Keller for compiling the research and writing the majority of it for this episode.
