The interview itself starts at 7:15. For anyone who doesn't care for the scratchy home-brew guitar — or my sense of humor !! * :) — then just jump to there.
* The pertinent lyrics :)
— Well now, I’ve heard that you've been talking about me. Really, I don’t mind… I know you try to block my progress A lot of the time. Now the mean things you said don’t make me feel bad….
ORIGINAL: "That's Enough", by Johnny Cash. I cannot find an uncopyrighted version. Cash played and sung it a little better than here, though!
The initial section prior to that is a collection of punctuated, short 'trailer' clips — like "the best of Richard Dolan" — to whet the appetite. Do Enjoy.
The MUFON Panel debate is now uploaded here:
Recorded on 1 August 2017, this is Part 2 of a conversation with Richard Dolan. Part 1 is here, from 6 July:
RICHARD DOLAN TALKS TO BILL RYAN IN DEPTH: COREY GOODE, ANDY BASIAGO, BILL TOMPKINS, MUFON, AND MORE
Sandwiched between was the 2017 MUFON Symposium, which Richard discussed at length in the first video — and reports about in this one.
Richard had been invited to take part in the Panel discussion with Corey Goode, Andrew Basiago, William Tompkins, and Michael Salla. Thousands of people who watched the first video would love to have been flies on the conference room wall…. so this report from Richard is the next best thing. :)
In this video, Richard discusses how he feels MUFON made a huge, unanticipated mistake; how most of the attendees were dismayed that MUFON has invited these speakers (‘ALLEGED whistleblowers’ is the term Richard uses), and were thankful that Richard was there to defend proper standards of research and investigation. But he reports that the panel members were able to conduct an in-depth, civil debate, that credited everyone involved.
Richard continues to enlarge on his thoughts about the current state of ufology, the problems and challenges facing researchers, and how best to respond to them.
He adds his strong thoughts about the problems of the New Age movement, and how that mixes with ufology like oil and water…. despite the attempts of some people (and organizations) to somehow Vitamix it all together for a credulous, uncritical, over-accepting audience, all too eager to believe.
