In episode 140 we looked at a wave of UFO activity that occurred in 1967. Many reported seeing strange red lights and metallic structured craft, and other objects, but few humanoid sightings were reported. In 1968, things got a lot weirder.

Throughout Canada witnesses reported strange encounters with humanoids, including luminous men, spacesuit-clad figures, a long bearded naked figure clinging to a boulder overlooking a cemetery, and figure with an ugly face peering in through a window.

Todd Purse returns to the pod to talk about Canada’s “Year of the Humanoids,” the 1968 Canadian Humanoid Wave!
