Eight years before Whitley Strieber’s Communion was published, The Andreasson Affair hit the shelves and challenged the notion of what abductions could be. Part alien abduction story and part contactee story, Betty’s contact occurred during a tumultuous period in her life. It proved to be a frightening, and reassuring experience, one that proved to reinforce Betty’s own religious beliefs.
Stephanie Quick stops by to discuss the case, how social status plays a part in the UFO and alien abduction stories we know by heart, the out of body nature of the Andreasson Affair, and esotericism vs. its practice.
