Our guests tonight will be Tom Carey, Mickey’s widow Jan and her sister Rona Riley, as well as Rick Lertzman.
Jan and Rona’s father worked at Lockheed Martin’s Advanced Development Programs (ADP), formerly called Lockheed Advanced Development Projects, and more famously known as The Skunk Works. Involved with Top Secret projects, he also told them that ETs are real and he saw the files.Read More

Regan has been writing and reporting on UFO and paranormal topics for several years now, including her Orange Org column on the web and in the now-defunct UFO Magazine. She also writes regularly for Binnall of America with her column Trickster’s Realm.
Here is her bio:
Regan Lee’s cultural heritage includes Russian – Jewish, Native American (Cherokee and Lenape), Celtic, Mexican-American, and Roman Catholic traditions, that continue to weave through her spiritual and creative journeys. She has written and self published a book on the Oregon Bigfoot legend (currently in revision and will soon be an e-book available both online and CD) and has consulted with the media and other researchers on ghosts, hauntings, and UFOs.
Her educational background includes degrees and experience in Language Arts, Ethnic and Folklore Studies, and Early Education. As a graduate student, she worked in the Folklore archives and co-taught a Women in Folklore course.
Regan’s passion lies in art and the paranormal – including UFOs. Her philosophy at this stage in her journey with regards to UFOs combines both the theories of Zecharia Sitchen (and other “Ancient Astronaut” schools) as well as the existence of another reality; the “Goblin Universe” where beings are often mistaken for UFOs.
She joined the BoA staff in December of 2005 and also hosts her own blog, The Orange Orb.Read More
