Strange sounds began to be heard in various parts of the world in March of 2011. At first, few people took notice, but the number of reports began to rise more quickly after September, until by Febuary of 2012, there are hundreds of reports, most of them posted as videos on YouTube. A substantial number of these are hoaxes, either using manufactured sounds or simply repeating recordings made by others.
This week, Linda Moulton Howe offers interviews with witnesses who have personally heard the sounds, including a sound engineer who is able to describe the strange trumpet-like sound he heard from a professional viewpoint.
Some of the recordings are genuine unknowns. Linda's witnesses are articulate and clear in their testimony. But if you look on YouTube, you will find an exceptional level of hostility to all of these reports. Strangely, many of the most hostile responses are from YouTube accounts that appear to have just been set up, to have no videos of their own, and no subscribers. In any case, the flood of hoaxes and the strange level of hostility are an unusual feature of the phenomenon. The intensity of the responses is so great that it is coming close to what Whitley Strieber calls a 'folkloric panic' similar to the hysteria that developed around the passage of the Hale-Bopp comet.
Listen as Linda Moulton Howe and Whitley Strieber cut through the hoaxes and confusion, and target what is real about the phenomenon with rational discussion and down-to-earth witnesses who describe what they heard in detail.
