UPDATE: Something is weird with the feed–trying again!
While we often get requests to cover this or that topics–Orfeo Angelucci’s contact experiences and writings may be the most often requested. His two books, The Secret of the Saucers and Son of the Sun are very much part of the Adamski-inspired tradition but with some interesting twists including ginger ale, weird tablets, the FBI, Venusians calling themselves “Bill,” confusing narrative structures, and Venusian nightclubs.
Secret of the Saucers may be read at Sacred Texts.
“Long John Nebel Presents the Flying Saucer Story” may be found on Youtube.
Angelucci’s first version of his story, from his “Twentieth Century Times” newsletter may be found at Mark Russell Bell’s blog.
Mystic Magazine #1 from November 1953, which includes Angelucci’s story, may be found at the Internet Archive. The August, 1954 issue featuring Howard Vest’s account of Bill the Venusian may be found via the Archives for the Unexplained.
Citations from FBI files in this episode were made possible by the work of The Black Vault.
The Astonishing Legends show did an episode on Angelucci in 2017–I’ve not listened to it but the more Orfeo the better!

I also, just for fun, put together a little overview of how I made this episode here.
