First, Linda Moulton Howe reports on the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, including a discussion–a rational and accurate one–of aircraft disappearances that have been connected to UFO events, of which there are three known, all involving much smaller planes.
Then we continue with our regular programming: NPR Correspondent Margot Adler is also a leading expert on vampires, and Whitley Strieber calls her book Vampires Are Us "the most imaginative answer to the question of why we are fascinated by vampires ever written." But WHY do we find them so fascinating? Why do they appear in virtually every culture in the world? What are they, really, and why is the literature about them so vast? Are there real vampires, and what about psychic vampires? Listen as Margot tells her story of what happened when she brought that subject up during a lecture to Romanian women in Transylvania.
Anne Strieber tells her story of a terrifying experience she had with a psychic vampire while she was pregnant, and Margot explores the mystery of why we are, more and more, interested in vampires and the dead–or the living dead.
As always, Dreamland’s take on this subject is completely unique.
This edition of Dreamland is dedicated to the missing of Flight 370 and to their families. Our prayers go with them in their suffering.
