    Jan. 12, 2015, 10pm (PST) - Crypto History with Rob Morphy

    in Paranormal

    The history of Cryptozoology is a fascinating subject, as throughout history people, since they arrived in North America have reported sightings of strange creatures on land, sea and air. From sea monsters to pteradactyls, to werewolves, Rob Morphy is a researcher that looks back into these reports.  Rob is also a monthly contributor to Spaced Out Radio making his first appearance on the show in 2016.


     


    Rob developed a longing for these weird and obscure sightings when he was a kid. He's always had an affinity for finding out the true stories behind what people reported back in the day. The research is arduous and frustrating at best, especially if all of the eye witnesses are deceased, but he tracks them down to keep them in the forefront of the crypto world.


     


    With his partner, Marc Storrs, Rob started www.cryptopia.us. The first website developed to the pure history of crypto sightings and reports. Think of Cryptopia as their love of monsters. They also examine enigmassuch as psychic phenomena, spectral visitations, historical anomalies, UFO encounters and anything else that may have slipped the surly bonds of conventional reality as we know it.

    Secular Sunday

    in Lifestyle

    Lectures, music and readings of classical literature designed to escape the bread and circus of spectator sport extravaganzas tjhat dominate American popular media.


    Note: There is a ten minute gap between the book discussion and the Libris Vox readings. I apologize for this delay.


    From the program summary by New Books Network host Marshall Poe:


    "Most people who listen to this podcast will have heard of Joseph McCarthy and HUAC (The House Committee on Un-American Activities). His activities and those of HUAC were, however, only the tip of a very large iceberg. In the 1940s and 1950s, the U.S. government conducted something like a “purge” of federal employees with leftist pasts. Thousands of federal workers were invested and hundreds (at least) were terminated. In The Second Red Scare and the Unmaking of the New Deal Left (Princeton UP, 2012), Landon Storrs tells this untold (and very disturbing) story. Listen in.


    The climactic section of Winston Churchill's The River War detailing the Battle of Omduran will be read by a Libris Vox volunteer today.  From a pertinent part of the books summary: 


    " ... The young Churchill was hot to gain war experience to aid his career, and so he wangled a transfer to the 21st Lancers and participated in the last successful cavalry charge the world ever saw, in the climactic battle of Omdurman. ... "

    THIS IS IYANNA JONES w/Professor Roger N. Buckley

    in Entertainment

    Roger N. Buckley is Professor of History  and the founding director of the Asian American Studies Institute at the University of Connecticut, at its main campus at Storrs. He was born in New York City to immigrant parents from the Caribbean. He earned a Ph.D. in British Empire History from McGill University in Montreal, Canada.
    He began his professional career exploring the question of war and society in the British colonial empire of the 19th century. That work has involved extensive archival research. For example, the archival material for his major book, The British Army in the West Indies, was mined in thirty-nine different public archives spread over ten countries in North America, Europe and the Caribbean.
    His writing has entered a new phase in recent years. In an effort to bring his work to a larger more general audience, he has turned his attention to literary historical fiction and popular fiction. These works (which also include motion picture screen plays and eposodic  drama treatments for television) are all informed by his academic research.
