Released: 15 July 2018
Duration: 1 hour, 41 seconds

Host and Producer Marsha Barnhart welcomes API investigators Paul Carr and Savannah Dollison. The three cover a few of their recent investigations in-depth during a round-table discussion. They examine sightings in New Jersey, New York, Utah and Georgia, which covered the gamut from overhead "fly-by's" to unnerving close encounters!
What do photos and videos of Unidentified Aerial Objects add to the tangibility of “evidence” within the UFO research field? In fact, what IS “evidence” and what IS "proof"? Paul looks at these issues in episode 10 of his Unidentified Science series.

Kevin Knuth Host Paul Carr in conversation with Dr. Kevin Knuth, author of a recent article in The Conversation entitled "Are we alone? The question is worthy of serious scientific study."
The conversation centers around strategies for lifting "the veil of ridicule" that surrounds UFO studies, and Kevin's own experience, and how he came to take the topic seriously himself.

We are reviving our YouTube Channel with some great new content. We will cover four major areas
that we think you will find interesting:

  1. Education and help for UFO witnesses, giving them insight into their experiences and the investigative process at API.
  2. Training for API and other investigators.
  3. Video summaries of some API cases.
  4. General public education about UFOs and the many natural phenomena that are mistaken for anomalous objects in the sky.
We encourage you to go to our channel and subscribe, so you'll be notified whenever a new video is added to the series, which should be about 1-2 times per month. We encourage you to also comment on our videos and ask any questions you might have after watching.

Conversation 8 - Cheryl Costa, part 1

Released: 24 March 2018
Duration: 62 minutes

Download the .mp3 audio file

Marsha Barnhart talks to Cheryl Costa, co-author of UFO Sightings Desk Reference. This is a one-of-a-kind reference book covering 15 years of UFO sightings within the United States. The information was gleaned from more than 120,000 raw reports made by citizens to either the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) or the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) between the years 2001 to 2015. The information is a statistical bonanza annotating the frequency, distribution and shapes of reported UFO’s, with accompanying graphs charts and charts, and broken down into states and state counties for all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

But this body of work, as amazing as it is, showcases just a portion of Cheryl’s talents: she is a published playwright, a film maker, a blogger with an international following, a talk radio host, an ordained Buddhist Nun, a Disclosure Activist and a devotee of Mind and Consciousness study.
Cheryl is a native New Yorker. She is a US Military Veteran. Anyone who reads her blog, New York Skies, can easily reach her at her published email account. Part one of this interview with Cheryl Costa was recorded on February 28th, 2018.

Transitioning to the Main Site

We are going to slowly sweep all the API Case Files content over to the Main API website. This blog will stay up indefinitely, though.  We're probably 3-4 episodes away from being over there 100% and stop updating this blog.
