Way back on episode three of this podcast, we featured our first of only two UFO Book Clubs, dedicated to The Close Encounters Man: How One Man Made The World Believe in UFOs by Mark O’Connell. O’Connell’s biography of J Allen Hynek presented a man on two fronts, a scientists and a UFO investigator who had some really interesting spiritual beliefs. We released that episode way back in 2018, so it only felt natural to have Mark himself on four years later. (Better late than never, right?)

In all seriousness, it was an honor to have Mark on to talk about for Star Trek, the process of researching The Close Encounters Man, meeting Jennie Zeidman and getting her on camera for the show UFO Witness, and to talk about his podcast, Far-Fetched.
