LISTEN TO EPISODE 75: ALIENS INVADE PHILADELPHIA:
Do you know how many UFO sightings have been reported in the Philadelphia region since the start of 2018? Hundreds of sightings go reported to various agencies and many more are kept secret. Though a number of these may have rational explanations, what are people really seeing?
Aliens are invading Philadelphia! Horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas bring you a special report on UFOs spotted around Pennsylvania, and according to the number of sightings they’ve uncovered, a fleet of flying saucers are hovering over the Keystone State! Researched from documented reports, the hosts expose a conspiracy of silence.
Author T. Fox Dunham shares a true story from his childhood. In 1985, he saw two UFOs flying high in the sky. Either they were alien, a trick of the light or some secret military experiment. He shares the story.
Two lights shot out from the horizon, seemingly flying up from some unseen launch pad in my region.
–Strange Lights Over Levittown from T. Fox Dunham
And they talk about aliens in science fiction, discussing such classics as Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Arthur C. Clarke’s Childhood’s End.
Fox interviews Netflix special effects’ director, Andy Fowler. Mr. Fowler has designed the effects for popular movies like 300, Noah, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, San Andreas and many others. He provides insight and advice for new filmmakers trying to make it in the movie industry and discusses how it’s changed over the last decade.
ALIENS: ZONE OF SILENCE
Mr. Fowler’s new movie, Aliens: Zone of Silence is now available on Netflix.
After her brother mysteriously vanishes from the Mexican desert, a young woman sets out to uncover the otherworldly truth about his disappearance. Aliens: Zone of Silence is available on Netflix.

THE VERY MOST – INDIE MUSIC
The hosts also play some extraterrestrial music to set the mood. The indie band, And The Most, shares their song,
“Alien Girl” and the show closes with a strange techno song from SeJayno, “Alien Eyes”!
The Very Most was started in Boise, Idaho, USA by Jeremy Jensen in either 2002 or 2003 (he honestly can’t remember). Since that time, the band has released three full-length albums, seven EPs, and a bunch of miscellaneous tracks. Recorded entirely in Jeremy’s backyard studio (made from a converted shed), the music exists in a pretty little spot on the Venn diagram where The Beach Boys, Camera Obscura, New Order, Teenage Fanclub, and The Wedding Present meet. It makes heavy use of male/female harmony, vocal call-and-answer, and lushly layered instruments, both conventional and not-so-conventional. It’s all pop, and it’s all melodic, but it finds a lot of different ways of being melodic pop.
Live, the band has taken many different forms: from solo acoustic to a seven piece with a vibraphone. They’ve shared the stage with bands as varied as Built to Spill, The Ruby Suns, The Monochrome Set, and The Halo-Benders. They have played such festivals as NYC Popfest, Treefort Music Fest, and Indietracks (in the UK). Coming up is a compilation album of odds and ends, a 6ths-inspired EP of synth-pop with guest vocalists, and, with any luck, another full-length album.
And congratulations Eagles! First Super Bowl win for Philadelphia. We’re pretty sure aliens didn’t influence the victory, though they may have caused some strange behavior in the city after the game. We’re Philly’s horror home, and the aliens aren’t just invading; they’re here.

(Host of What Are You Afraid of Horror & Paranormal Podcast)
FANGORIA gives MERCY 3.5 out 4 Skulls – “Dunham has channeled his many brushes with the other side into the exquisitely rendered, lyrical supernatural hospital thriller MERCY.“ READ FULL REVIEW HERE.
“Part medical horror, part supernatural suspense, MERCY is a hard-hitting fever dream of a novel. I enjoyed the hell out of it!” ~ Tim Waggoner, author of The Way of All Flesh and Eat The Night
“Pain and poetry flow in equal measure through these pages. Dunham’s prose strikes deep and hits all the right notes. MERCY is unforgettably vivid.” ~ David Dunwoody, author of Hell Walks and The 3 Egos
William Saint is dying of cancer. On most days death seems like a humane alternative to the treatment. Stricken with fever, William is rushed to Mercy—notorious as a place to send the sickest of the poor and uninsured to be forgotten—and finds the hospital in even worse condition than his previous visit. The grounds are unkempt, the foundation is cracking, and like the wild mushrooms sprouting from fissures of decay around it, something is growing inside the hospital. Something dark. It’s feeding on the sickness and sustaining itself on the staff, changing them. And now it wants Willie.
This was my death.
Life is an addiction.
Love is the only force that is real. Read . . . and understand what I saw. I put it in metaphor. You do not understand what you do not understand.
