Throughout a broad-ranging and prolific career, Col. John Alexander (retired) has developed expertise in topics like national defense and international security (including pioneering non-lethal weapons), UFOs and phenomenology, and aerospace. He will be joined in conversation by George Knapp, an award-winning investigative journalist credited with publicizing Bob Lazar and Area 51 as well as the “Skinwalker Ranch.”

Released by the Pentagon in 2021, the mysterious “tic tac” video–taken by US Navy pilots showing an aircraft reaching incredible speeds with agility challenging the laws of physics–marked one of the few times since the closure of Project Blue Book in 1969 that the federal government publicly acknowledged unexplainable events experienced by credible witnesses and their possible impact on national security. It led to the creation of the Defense Department’s All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), a multidisciplinary agency tasked with investigating the events to find answers and assess potential threats to the United States. Currently, AARO is investigating 650 separate unexplained incidents involving Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.
