We kick things off with the standard bio / background on Jeremy Vaeni. From there, he shares with us the evolution of his abduction experiences in vivid detail. We find out when and how Jeremy came to the conclusion that he was an abductee, including his interraction with the ETs, odd dream experiences, how he seemingly broke their screening effects, and the odd energy that has engulfed him of late.

Next, we ask Jeremy the question that has haunted him for months ... "could it have been an angel ?" On a more serious note, we find out about Jeremy's visits to hypnotherapists to get to the bottom of what was going on in his life. After that we find what made Jeremy decide to make the transition for experiencer to someone in the public field discussing his abduction experience.

After that we find out how Jeremy feels about the skeptics' take on abductions and if he has tried to apply them to his experience to see if there is any credence to the skepticism. Based on all his experiences, Jeremy tells us what his theory is on what is going on with the abductions.

Following that is an interesting discussion on the role of abductees in Ufology and whether or not Jeremy feels like they are held at arm's length by the UFO community. This sort of turns into a mildly hilarious trainwreck about the "fringe of the fringe".

Then we discuss Jeremy's film "No One's Watching : An Alien Abductee's Story". We first find out about how the movie came about and Jeremy's perspective on the film as a director and some of artistic twists he added to the film. Then binnall and Jeremy dance around the "girlfriend situation" in the film as Jeremy carefully explains why he designed the film the way he did, hopefully without spoiling it for people who haven't seen it.

This leads to Jeremy talking about his odd "energy" that has him doing Chinese meditation in the film and he extrapolates on the sentiment he expressed in the movie, that he finds the energy more interesting than his abduction experience. We then find out yet another revealing answer from Jeremy as we get to the bottom of the infamous ass shot in "Nobody's Watching".

Looking at a big picture question regarding Ufology, we discuss the UFO field's sense of humor or lack thereof, whether Jeremy has received any backlash for being "too jokey", and why he thinks there seems to be a lack of humour in the UFO field. Tackling another big picture question, we get Jeremy's take on the state of Ufology today. This leads into a dicussion on the lunatic fringe of Ufology, why it is so hard to rid the field of these influences, and what Jeremy suggests the UFO field do to accomplish that task. Leaping off from Jeremy's suggestion, we discuss the sticky points with that idea, namely how one would police the vast gray area in Ufology between legitimate researcher and outright huckster.

Digging up the old chestnut from previous BoA:Audio interviews, we talk about Ufology's lack of young people and we ask Jeremy why there seems to be such a lack of interest by young people in the UFO phenomenon. We also get Jeremy's take on the recent series of press conferences in November that were promoting disclosure. That leads into our next area of discussion, which was Jeremy's trip down to Washington D.C. for the X-Conference in September and his take on the exopolitics movement. Towards the end of this segment, Jeremy turns the tables on binnall and gets his take on some of the stickier elements in the Exopolitical movement and binnall tries to explain his philosophy behind handling it.

Discussing his prolific output, we find out what inspires Jeremy in all the various outlets in which he works.

Wrapping around to the beginning, we find out how Jeremy deals with meeting new people and telling them about his abduction experiences. Jeremy tells us about the future of the Culture of Contact festival. We find out about Jeremy's podcast series and how he decides the guests and such.

After that we discuss the abduction field and how it fits into the big picture of Ufology and how the abductees feel about being potentially marginalized by the UFO field. We then turn to Jeremy's book "I know why the aliens don't land" and we pose the obvious question of "why" to Jeremy regarding the aliens landing. Jeremy looks to the future of Ufology and the world and gives us his thoughts on where we are heading and if disclosure looks possible in our lifetimes. This turns into talking about the UFO issue as a generational one and why people should care if UFOs are real and how to get mainstream people to actually care. Somehow this leads to us talking about one of Ufology's biggest problems : bad haircuts.

Heading towards the close, we find out what is coming down the line from Jeremy in the near and distant future.
