Ross Coulthart is an Australian journalist who has an interest in the topic of Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP). He has recently published a book called In Plain Sight: An Investigation into UFOs and Impossible Science (I have yet to read the book but will post a review as soon as I get around to it).
In this long-form interview (over 3 hours all up) with Curt Jaimungal, Ross covers pretty much everything you might want to know about UAPs or ‘The Phenomenon’ as it is now popularly called.
As you know if you follow this blog, I have an open-minded interest in this topic. I believe there is something going on in our skies (and elsewhere), and I have a feeling it might just be something far more unusual, complicated, mysterious than we expect.
It is a difficult topic full of blind speculation, fake and misleading narratives and poor levels of evidence. But in my opinion, Ross brings a refreshing degree of balance and scrutiny to the floor whilst remaining open to some of the more so called ‘high-strangeness’ aspects of the phenomenon.
Plus he is a fellow Aussie. An active bullshit detector is in his cultural makeup.
You might not want to watch the whole 3 hrs, but you can skip around to topics of conversation you might find interesting.
