New York Times reporter Ralph Blumenthal has written a brilliant and much deserved biography of a mysterious, amazing and brilliant hero: Dr. John Mack. As a tenured Harvard professor and a licensed psychiatrist, Dr. Mack put his life, his livelihood and his reputation on the line when he began publicly
Executive Director for the New Energy Movement and experiencer, Susan Kornacki, joins us to talk about her time behind the scenes with John Mack and his group, PEER. She also brings us back, back, way back to the moment before she was born and then shuttles us forward for a peek into the rare-but-there darker side of her experiences with a recounting of her encounter from grade school with someone fitting the description of a Man In Black. This one jumps all over the space-time continuum–and it’s just the beginning!
This weekend, we offer two special programs. First, Whitley Strieber’s long awaited analysis of his short story Pain. Pain was written during the time that he had his 1985 close encounter experience, and reveals much of his unconscious reaction to what had happened to him. Over the thirty years since, he has learned a great deal more about the experience, and the insights that appear in this discussion are among the deepest he has ever reached.
Second, Whitley Strieber and Dr. John Mack became good friends after Dr. Mack became interested in close encounter witnesses. In November of 1999, Whitley interviewed Dr. Mack on Dreamland. It is a beautiful interview, and Whitley has added an introduction recalling Dr. Mack and their relationship.
On November 14, 1999, Whitley Strieber interviewed Dr. John Mack for Dreamland. Prior to this presentation of that program, Whitley has added a discussion of his friendship with Dr. Mack and his support of him during the terrible time when he was being pilloried in the press and Harvard was threatening his tenure, and his professional credentials were being challenged. John Mack was a brilliant and courageous man, and his work remains a beacon of truth in the darkness of media, military and scientific lies that surround the close encounter experience.
This interview represents the only time where the world’s best known close encounter witness interviewed the community’s greatest and most articulate advocate.
