Tim Ventura
Expert interviews on UAP, artificial intelligence, quantum computing, physics, defense tech, life-extension, propulsion, consciousness and more. Tim has been interviewing world-changing subject matter experts across a wide scope of professional & academic disciplines for over 20 years – starting back in 2002 with his work at AAG. Over time, what started with the goal of sharing the wisdom of people he respected with the world grew into an online library of expertise focused on expert opinions in space, science, technology, & policy areas. Altogether, Tim has recorded over 300 interviews – many of which are currently online in video format, across topics ranging from the UAP Phenomenon to government fiscal policy. Each of his interviews is a stand-alone overview for the thoughts & opinions of each subject matter expert, but together they help to educate a large audience across a wide array of topics.
Lester Nare - Congressional UAP Caucus
The Congressional UAP Caucus is making UFO Disclosure a reality by making it United States law. Lester Nare provides in-depth analysis & insights on the key representatives and initiatives in UAP legislation. Visit the UAP Caucus Website https://www.uapcaucus.com/ Lester Nare is the Founder of UAPCaucus.com, a non-profit activist organization working to educate lawmakers on the UAP topic and engage them in taking action to facilitate Disclosure. Lester attended Princeton University, and is the Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of real estate technology startups Steadworth and WikiRealty. He also runs Nare.TV, a successful video podcast, and in past roles has worked as a Creative Director for a highly successful e-commerce company. In today's interview, we'll be discussing the progression of UFOs within government & legislation, from the story origins with the 2004 Nimitz sightings to the the AAWSAP & AATIP programs, through the UAPTF & AARO programs, and finally to the David Grusch testimony and activism by Rep. Tim Burchett. Lester describes not only the key representatives in the House & Senate, but how they are working with the DoD and Executive Branch to draft legislation to help safeguard American airspace & simultaneously provide answers to the question of UFOs - an unresolved topic that's been a part of American culture for over 70 years.

Rollin McCraty - Global Coherence Initiative
Do solar activity & geomagnetic fields affect the human body? Dr. Rollin McCraty discusses the Global Coherence Initiative researching interactions between consciousness and the electromagnetic environment we live in. Consciousness, The Human Heart and the Global Energetic Field Environment https://www.heartmath.org/assets/uploads/2021/04/consciousness-human-heart-and-global-energetic-field-environment.pdf The Global Coherence Initiative is described as a "science-based, international effort that conducts research on interactions between humans and the Earth’s magnetic field environment as well as collective intention on promoting peace, and harmony". The primary focus of GCI is research that examines the dynamic relationship between human consciousness (physiology, emotions, behaviors, etc.) and Earth’s energetic (electromagnetic) environment. Can you tell me a bit more about this Dr. Rollin McCraty, the Director of Research of the HeartMath Research Center at the HeartMath Institute. As a psycho-physiologist, Dr. McCraty’s research interests include the physiology of emotion, heart-brain communication and the global interconnectivity between people and the earth’s energetic systems. Dr. McCraty has acted as Principal Investigator in numerous studies examining the effects of emotions on heart–brain interactions and on autonomic, cardiovascular, hormonal, and immune system function, and outcome studies to determine the benefits of positive emotion-focused interventions and heart rhythm coherence feedback in diverse organizational, educational and various clinical populations. Dr. McCraty has been featured in a number of documentary films such as I am, The Truth, The Joy of Sox move, The Power of the Heart, Solar Revolution, and The Living Matrix among many others.

Nick Eftimiades - TikTok & China's National Intel Law
Federal law & 34 states have banned TikTok on government devices, so why are there still 86 million users in the USA? Prof. Nick Eftimiades discusses the US Federal device ban & the complex web of foreign intrigue that makes protecting American data a difficult endeavor. US Dept. Homeland Data Security Advisory: https://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/files/publications/20_1222_data-security-business-advisory.pdf Nicholas Eftimiades is an American government official, author, and educator best known for his work Chinese Intelligence Operations (1994). Nick’s 34 year government career includes employment in the CIA as a Technical Operations Officer, a Special Agent in the US Department of State, the Bureau of Diplomatic Security, and as a Senior Intelligence Officer in the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).

He has an M.S. in Strategic Intelligence, National Defense Intelligence College; and a B.A. East Asian Studies, George Washington University. He currently works as an assistant teaching professor in the Penn State Homeland Security Program. Tik Tok is currently one of the largest social media networks on the internet, with over 1 Billion users worldwide and 86.9 million users in the United States, and its parent company Bytedance is currently under investigation by the US Justice Department for "possible spying on US Citizens". On December 30, 2022, President Joe Biden signed the No TikTok on Government Devices Act, prohibiting the use of the app on devices owned by the federal government, with some exceptions. As of April 2023, at least 34 states have announced or enacted bans on state government agencies, employees, and contractors using TikTok on government-issued devices. At the very least, this means that these concerns are being taken seriously enough to be codified in law, The views & opinions expressed in this interview are those if Nick Eftiamideas alone, and do not represent the views of the United States Government, its representative agencies, or Penn State. Additionally, none of the views or opinions we'll be discussing today should be taken as insulting or disparaging Chinese culture, society, or individual people in any way.

Steven Firth - Alien Autopsy & ET Ethics
The 1995 film "Alien Autopsy" raised big questions about the ethical treatment of extraterrestrials, which Steven Firth addresses in his latest paper, “On the Right to Posthumous Bodily Integrity of ETI ‘Biologics’”. Alien Autopsy is a 17-minute black-and-white film supposedly depicting a secret medical examination or autopsy of an alien by the US military. It was originally presented it as authentic, but later claimed to be a staged reconstruction. The existence of a original footage has never been independently verified, and the film is widely considered a hoax. Steven Firth's paper is focused on the moral & ethical questions raised by Alien Autopsy, regardless of the film's veracity. He asks what rights EBE's have on Earth, and proposes that a framework should exist for the ethical treatment of all non-human intelligence, regardless of origin. Steve has a Bachelors and Master’s in Philosophy from the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada, and for the last 6 years has been a PhD candidate in Philosophy through the University of Helsinki. Steve’s work includes research into practical applications of the Picture Theory of Disability, experience teaching philosophy, logic, and research methodologies at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology as part of the CORE Education Program, and volunteer work as an awareness advocate for cancer screening and early detection.
