On episode 204 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan speaks with Pulitzer-Prize- winning New York Times reporter, co-author of the now-famous 2017 NY Times Pentagon UFO article, and author, Ralph Blumenthal. Blumenthal walks us through the decades-long journey of writing the definitive biography on the life and career of Harvard psychiatrist, Dr. John E. Mack.

In 'The Believer: Alien Encounters, Hard Science, and the Passion of John Mack', Blumenthal tells the story of how renowned Harvard Medical School psychiatrist John E. Mack became fascinated with a range of paranormal phenomena ranging from alien abductions to UFOs to past lives. Blumenthal interviewed dozens of Mack’s friends and colleagues, and conducted years of archival research, to understand what drew Mack to the fringes of science and what he learned there. Blumenthal also answers listener questions and discusses what may come next with his reporting on UFOs over at the New York Times.
