"We Are Not Alone" THIS Tuesday

Tuesday, December 1, 2009. 1:00 PM EST.
Listen in as host David Twichell speaks with Corina Saebels, author of The Collectors. Corina claims to have been an alien abductee since childhood and now the phenomenon has carried over to her children.
Skeptics claim that the abduction phenomenon is nothing more than "sleep paralysis". This explanation cannot account for abductions that occur in broad daylight and are witnessed by third parties. Nor does it explain physical evidence substantiated by professional physicians.

We're “making waves” with new shows and time slots:

Monday:
“Delicate Destruction” (moving from 9pm Mondays): noon-2pm
”The Zone” (moving from 8pm Saturdays): 9pm-midnight
