We kick things off with an update from Robert Hastings on what he's been up to since his previous BoA:Audio appearance. We also have Robert Salas recount his famous March 1967 UFO encounter at Malmstrom Air Force Base. Given that he's probably told the story hundred, if not thousands, of times, we find out if Bob ever gets tired of recounting the events of that night in 1967. We find out, given the classifications involved, what made Bob decide to share his story with the world.

Comparing Bob's case to the types of incident reports that Robert has collected, we get a general overview of his research into the UFO-Nuke connection. We find out if Robert has gotten any reports from folks in the Navy who might have had USO or UFO encounters while working on nuclear submarines.

Delving into the latest project that Robert and Bob are working on, they discuss their planned press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., scheduled for September 27th. Bob details how the plan came together and what their goal is for the press conference. We get their reaction to the many UFO press conferences that have been held at the NPC since 2004 and if they think that will hinder their event. Robert stresses why the UFO-Nuke witnesses are particularly strong, since they were vetted by the US government to be responsible for nuclear weapons.

We get Robert's response to the theory that the UFOs seen over nuclear bases are part of some kind training exercise. Bob also shares his take on why this theory is implausible, based on his personal experience. We then discuss how the Air Force reaction to these events has changed over the years and if we can glean any information, from that, as to what their institutional perspective is on UFOs at nuclear bases. Going down a different road, we get Bob's perspective on being a prominent witness in Ufology and how he's reacted to the slings and arrows of skeptics, notably Bill Nye, who appeared as the designated skeptic to oppose Bob and Robert on the Larry King show.

Moving into other areas, we hear about Robert's 1998 interview with former Atomic Energy Commission chairman Chet Lytle, the stunning UFO revelations that he shared, and how he eventually stopped revealing information, under mysterious circumstances. Returning to discussion on the pair's appearance on Larry King, we find out how that opportunity even happened in the first place. We find out, from Bob Salas, what Larry King is like, off camera, with regards to the UFO phenomenon. Since this UFO-Nuke phenomenon has been ongoing for the last 40 years, at least, we find out if the military has found a way to prevent tampering of weapons via the craft, as was reported throughout the 1960's.

Getting into speculation, we wonder what the motivation is behind the UFOs hovering over nuclear bases, disarming weapons, and, in some cases, arming them. Keeping things within the speculative realm, we find out if there has been a downgrade of nuclear weapons due to the UFO 'warnings.' Continuing our look at the various 'other' forms of the UFO-Nuke connection, we find out what sort of reports that they have collected regarding nuclear power plants. We then talk about the need to realize that UFOs probably will not stop a nuclear war if one were to erupt and Robert also talks about situations where UFOs engaged nuclear weapons in the Soviet Union.

Heading towards the close, we have the duo reiterate the plan for the September Press Conference, they preview the event, and talk about the need for donations to help make the event possible. This segues into some discussion on the importance of emphasizing the national security implications of the UFO-Nuke connection, which may help engage the public and media in a more tangible way than other styles of 'disclosure attempts.' Wrapping things up, we find out what's next for Robert Hastings and Bob Salas, beyond the September 27th press conference.

Robert Hastings is a noted UFO researcher and lecturer who has interviewed nearly a hundred U.S. Air Force veterans who were involved in nuclear weapons-related UFO incidents. Robert has interviewed retired military personnel regarding their knowledge of nuclear weapons-related UFO activity, and has taken his findings and presented them to colleges and universities nationwide. He's also the author of the book UFOs and Nukes.

Captain Bob Salas graduated from the Air Force Academy and spent seven years in active duty from 1964 to 1971. He also held positions at Martin Marietta and Rockwell and spent 21 years at the FAA. In the Air Force, he was an air traffic controller and a missile launch officer as well as an engineer on the Titan 3 missiles.
