The People Speak, 23/09/2014
TRAVIS WALTON - perhaps the most famous Alien Abduction subject case in history reflects on his experience and the ensuing 39 years since. Travis recounts the actual experience, talks about what he's been through, the film Fire in the Sky, the book, his ongoing work appearing in public including upcoming appearances throughout the USA.
TRAVIS WALTON was one of a group of loggers, who, on November 5, 1975, in the mountains of northeastern Arizona observed a strange, unusually bright light in the sky. One of those men, Travis Walton, recklessly left the safety of his truck to take a closer look. What happened next sent his companions fleeing in fear. When Travis failed to reappear, the men were suspected of murder. For five days authorities mounted a massive manhunt in search of Walton or his body. Walton eventually reappeared, disoriented and initially unable to tell the details of his terrifying encounter. His book Fire in the Sky provides an account of his experience. A major motion picture was also made with the same name.
ABOUT THE BOOK Fire in the Sky by Travis Walton
On november 5, 1975, a group of loggers in the mountans of northeastern Arizona observed a strange, unusually bright light in the sky. One of those men, Travis Walton, recklessly left the safety of their truck to take a closer look. Suddenly, as he walked toward the light, Walton was blasted back by a bolt of mysterious energy.
His Companions fled in fear. When they reported an encounter with a UFO — something they would have considered impossible if they had not witnessed it themselves — the men were suspected of murder. For five days authorities mounted a massive manhunt in search of Walton — or his body. Then Walton reappeared, disorented and initially unable to tell the whole story of his terrifying encounter.
In Fire in the Sky Travis Walton relates in his own words the best documented account of alien abduction yet recorded, the story of his harrowing ordeal at the hands of silent captors and his return to a disbelieving world of hostile interrogators, exploitative press and self-styled "debunkers." Travis recounts the struggle to get a fair hearing, and confronts his detractors with a stinging rebuttal.
Now, the real story behind the hit movie from Paramount — a detailed expose of the campaign to suppress Walton's story, and first-time revelations of startling new developments. 396 pp.
The People Speak has evolved over the years with many great guests who have been interviewed by some very fine hosts.
We are a 55 minute show airing every other Sunday between 5-6pm Pacific/8-9pm Eastern. The show features a guest interview from any number of realms of interest (entertainment, science, philosophy, healing, spirituality, activism, politics, literature, etc.).
The guests share their stories, lives, strategies, books, philosophy, films, music, or whatever it is they use as a vehicle for making a difference for the better.
The radio show name, The People Speak, is based on the idea of allowing our audience - the People - a chance to interact with the guests during the hour, and we take phone or text questions from them during the interview.
Past guests include such notables as Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the late Howard Zinn, Nobel Laureates Mairead Maguire, Shirin Ebadi, Kathryn Najimy, Oliver Stone, Jesse Ventura, Richard Belzer, Cynthia McKinney, Cindy Sheehan, Scott Horton, Joan Jett, Willie Nelson, George Galloway, Roseanne Barr, Ed Asner, Chevy Chase, as well as various reps from Amnesty International, UN World Food Programme, and many others.
