William S. “Bill” English is, maybe, the forgotten “Bill” of 80s and 90s UFOlogy. his claims were extraordinary. His story was exciting and entertaining. Featuring clips from some classic UFO radio programming, and from the infamous 1989 MUFON conference, this was a fun episode to put together and we think it’s a bit of a sleeper.
