The Roswell UFO Incident

In this episode of Strange Matters we discuss the infamous Roswell Incident, where a mysterious crashed aircraft of unknown origins was discovered near an Air Force base in New Mexico.

In the summer of 1947 a farmer came across a pile of debris scattered on the ground that appeared to be some kind of craft. Local Air Force officials came to inspect and recover the materials and claimed it was simply a crashed Weather Balloon.

Though many believed the explanation, there are some who came to believe that this was the first evidence of a crashed Alien space craft.  As UFO hysteria swept the country, many others in the Roswell area claimed to see other signs of alien activity, including claims of spotting dead aliens at other crash sites.

We here at Strange Matters go over the big stories and claims made my both sides, the Government and UFO enthusiast alike.  Is there any chance that this was in fact an alien craft?  Or was it simply just a experimental Air Force balloon? Listen to the episode and let us know what you believe of this bizarre tale!

Bioprinting & Bionics

In this episode Sean and Ethan discuss the emerging and strange new science of replacing biological body parts with new or improved artificial ones.  The upcoming technology of bioprinting allows scientists to use 3-D printing to create anything from new blood vessels, artificial skin to cover burns, or even an entirely new organ ready to be transplanted.  Also the field of bionics is coming to a point where soon people can replace damaged or missing limbs with completely bionic replacements.  These new artificial appendages use smart technology and state of the art mechanics to produce a prosthetic limbs that is just as good as the one you were born with.. and perhaps in the near future they will actually be superior!

The Chupacabra

In this episode we discuss the legend of the mythical Chupacabra! This popular cryptid comes from Puerto Rico and has been blamed for the bloody deaths of hundreds of livestock.  Starting in the 1990’s, words quickly spread among the farming villages of a strange animal killing livestock.  This unusual lizard/dog like creature is famous for sucking all the blood out of animals before disappearing completely.  Hundreds have claimed to have seen this creature, but the chupacabra has never been captured. Still no proof that the chupacabra actually exists and is not just an urban legend blown to an international scale.

For this episode Sean gives the background and history of this bloodthirsty animal and the guys discuss the main theories and ideas behind the legendary cryptid.  Please leave feedback and your own thoughts on the Chupacabra along with any other areas of Cryptozoology you would like us to cover!
