Whitley Strieber reads from his new book, Alien Hunter: Underworld and tells some hair-raising stories about his own experiences with phenomena coming up from beneath our feet. This is one of his most candid statements, also, about why he writes fiction and what may be behind it. If you listen to nothing else, listen to his riveting, heartfelt description of his process that opens the show.

But the chapter he reads is also riveting. One thing that has to be remembered: Whitley is a good writer. Very damn good. Enjoy!

The mysterious stone complex of Gobekli Tepe in Turkey is one of the great mysteries of archaeology. This week, Andrew Collins reports on his findings at the site and discoveries nearby that suggest even more incredible ruins remain to be uncovered.

Andrew Collins has traveled to Gobekli Tepe many times, and has developed a revolutionary theory about the meaning of the 12,000 year old complex. Here, he explains how it was built 12,000 years ago as a reaction to a horrific global cataclysm, and how it works as a gateway and map of the sky-world reached via a star in the constellation of Cygnus.

Starfire Tor returns to Dreamland with another astonishing story: a prediction she made on the show on March 7 was revealed to be true in a scientific discovery announced on June 12.

This week, we start by playing a recording of Starfire’s March 7 prediction, then we ask her how and why she was able to do this.

Starfire has been coming on Dreamland since 2006, during which time she has made many astonishing predictions that have come true, but never has there been one more improbable and startlingly accurate as this one.

The strangest and most improbable thing on Earth is the human brain, and the greatest mystery is that of how it functions with the mind. Does the brain create the mind, or partake of mind? Listen as innovative theorist Carl Calleman offers a truly remarkable theory about who we are and where we came from.

We look back to the dawn of human civilization, and at the pivotal mental shift that created early civilizations. Dr. Calleman describes what inspired the ancient Egyptians, Sumerians, Jews and Mayans, outlining a new theory about the historical, psychological, geophysical, and neurological roots of the human mind.
