This week, we begin a three part series on one of the most important figures in alien abduction lore, Whitley Strieber. Through a singular image on a book called Communion, Strieber captured the uncanny valley of many readers and introduced the aliens that we know as the greys.

On this episode we explore the contents of Communion, mainly Whitley’s main experiences of October 4 and December 26, 1985, and all of his other strange experiences contained within the book’s pages.

Special thanks to Jeff Demers for researching and writing this episode!
