CW: Self-harm, Childhood Sexual Assault, and CSA Material

We’re taking a break this week from the abduction series to introduce a new series, UFO Grifters, featuring the worst of the worst in the UFO community. We’re starting with a big one: Stan Romanek.

Romanek came to prominence in the 00s as an experiencer who had one of the best documented cases in the history of ufology. The story quickly evolved into one of the strangest and most convoluted contact stories on record, that ultimately led to his arrest in 2014 for the possession of CSAM.

Brian Hastie from Double Density joins me to pick apart this shitty story and expose it for what it really is.
