Gene and special guest cohost Tim Swartz present Paul Blake Smith, author of “President Eisenhower’s Close Encounters.” This is a controversial one listeners, but the main focus of the book is President Dwight Eisenhower’s alleged February 1954 meeting with extraterrestrials, initially kept secret from the public. When and how did that story first break? He previously authored “MO41, The Bombshell Before Roswell” and “3 Presidents, 2 Accidents: More MO41 UFO Crash Data. These were the first two books ever published about a possible April 1941 UFO event outside his hometown of Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Paul was a four-year Mass Communications Major with an English Minor at Southeast Missouri University in the 1980s and is a fan of history, sports, and the paranormal.
