We kick things off with the standard bio / background on Carl Feindt, how he got interested in the UFO phenomenon, specifically the water-UFO connection. We then discuss why it seems like USOs have remained in the background of UFO studies. After that, we talk about Carl's exhaustive website waterufo.net and how he collected the vast number of cases detailed at the site. This segues into some discussion on how the work of Ted Phillips inspired Carl to investigate USOs.

We look at some of the USO trends that have emerged as Carl has compiled so many cases. Looking at perhaps the key trend that Carl has discovered, we discuss the UFO's physical effects on water, a revelation that Carl says made him a true believer in the UFO phenomenon. He gives a detailed summation of the four types of UFO and water interraction and how they explain a lot about the way UFOs operate. We talk about potential "trace cases" upon the water. This leads to some discussion on the water temperature changes caused by UFOs.

Carl destroys binnall's theory of USOs and aircraft carriers, which leads to talk about sonar and radar reports of USOs. After that, we find out about Carl's cases that involve "death in the water" and why he stresses to future Ufologists to "have the specimens analyzed." We cover fish reactions to USOs. Carl shares the influences on his "field theory" regarding UFOs and what the mystery of the field was to him.

We talk about a fascinating case of two divers who died possibly due to exposure to a USO and how heat generated from the UFO's field has been reported to cause rain to turn into steam. Carl explains why he hates theories about UFOs taking ships and how that line of thinking is a systemic problem related to UFO studies. Staying in line with temperature effects from the UFOs, we talk about reports of interraction between the craft and ice along with snow and UFOs. We also explore the potential of snow circles, similar to crop circles.

After that, we look at the possibility that classic sea monster reports could actually be USOs. We find out if there is an average USO report, i.e. going into and out of the water, going in and not coming out, just coming out, totally submerged, etc. Carl also explains how the USO reports run the gamut of all bodies of water, except for one and he explains why.

USOs taking on water ... we get Carl's opinion on why there are some reports of USOs extracting water. We talk about "water wheels" and why Carl says they are a real phenomenon but not almost certainly not related to USOs. Staying on the topic of UFO occupants taking on water, we discuss some of the stories where this occurs. Carl explains how this is different from the appearance of UFOs floating over water and sucking it up. We also find out that these stories of occupants obtaining water for their UFOs range from the late 1800's all the way up to 2001.

Carl debunks the Eltanin, "alien antenna" story, and explains how it is actually a natural formation. He also shares some fascinating insight into the reaction from Ufology when researchers debunked the Eltanin story. This segues into a discussion on the "underwater bases" theory surrounding UFOs. We also talk about the global nature of USO reports, including Switzerland and Iraq.

We cover "abductees and water" and some of the stories that Carl has regarding tales told by abductees regarding UFO water interraction. We get his opinion on the liklihood that the USO reports in contemporary times are really government black ops projects.

Carl shares how he encouraged Keith Chester to write his book on foo fighters, which leads to discussion on old UFO cases. Looking at other categories of USO reports, we talk about UFOs beaming light into water and what the reasoning behind that might be. We also talk about the "water nest" story from Australia and how it relates to the water / UFO connection. Carl explains why he thinks "the field" has no relation to how the UFO travels, rather acting as a force field of sorts.

We find out Carl's favorite reported USO case in his collection and why Shag Harbour is not his favorite case. He talks about how he thinks the UFO at Shag Harbour was less a crash and more a repair job of a functioning craft. Looking at failed attempts by the U.S. to develop a USO-type craft, we talk about the "flying submarine" study from 1965. Returning again to trends, we find out the main location for witnesses who see UFOs interracting with water as well as the difference between nighttime and daytime UFO sightings.

Carl explains why UFOs interracting with water provide us with a unique opportunity, tha does not exist with an airborne UFO, to study the craft. Heading towards the close, we find out about instances of enforced secrecy by the Navy onto witnesses of USOs. We also find out the latest developments on Carl putting out a book on the UFO-water connection.

Carl Feindt has been fascinated by aviation since the late days of WWII. Starting with carved balsa replicas and later by flying models of aircraft, he followed his passion into service as a cadet in the Civil Air Patrol. After high school, he studied aircraft engineering at the Academy of Aeronautics (off LaGuardia Airport’s runway) in New York City. Following two years with the Air Force, a family hardship forced him to return to civilian life where he joined a major airline for which he worked in customer service for 34 years.

Upon retirement, he was interested in becoming active in Ufology, about which he had been reading since the early 60’s. The opportunity came when Jan Aldrich, a UFO researcher, asked for volunteers to do local newspaper searches. Over the course of eight years, he studied microfilm rolls at the University of Delaware, exhaustively covering the years between 1923 and 1967, and found approximately 750 UFO-related articles – this from the second smallest state in the union.

Intrigued by the fact that aircraft cannot emerge from or submerge into water, he started assembling water-related UFO cases which have grown into a data base of this aspect of the UFO mystery.
