Direct MP3 Link!

On this Supersized Edition of The Metaphysical Connection, Walt Schnabel and Eric Renderking Fisk talk with Chuck Zukowski, Paranormal Investigator from the website "UFO Nut." The conversation ranges from how he embraced the moniker, his origin story on how he became a Paranormal Investigator, Cattle Mutilations, and the book about his life - "The 37th Parallel: The Secret Truth Behind America's UFO Highway" by Ben Mezrich.

From his website: For the past 30 years Chuck Zukowski has been researching and investigating the UFO/Paranormal phenomenon and for the past 14 years, he has worked with his sister, Debbie Ziegelmer, the current Missouri MUFON state director. Occasionally joining Chuck and Debbie on investigations is the co-owner of Post Interactive, Inc., Matt Morgan. Since joining forces in 2009, Post Interactive has documented the work of Chuck and Debbie in a the series of UFOnut Episodes and occasionally step in to help on various investigation tasks when necessary.

Publisher's Summary: The 37th Parallel: The Secret Truth Behind America's UFO Highway 

This real-life The X-Files and Close Encounters of the Third Kind tells the true story of a computer programmer who tracks paranormal events along a 3,000-mile stretch through the heart of America and is drawn deeper and deeper into a vast conspiracy.

Like Agent Mulder of The X-Files, computer programmer and sheriff's deputy Zukowski is obsessed with tracking down UFO reports in Colorado. He takes the family with him on weekend trips to look for evidence of aliens. But this innocent hobby takes on a sinister urgency when Zukowski learns of mutilated livestock and sees the bodies of dead horses and cattle - whose exsanguination is inexplicable by any known human or animal means.

Along an expanse of land stretching across the southern borders of Utah, Colorado, and Kansas, Zukowski discovers multiple bizarre incidences of mutilations and suddenly realizes that they cluster around the 37th parallel, or "UFO Highway". So begins an extraordinary and fascinating journey from El Paso and Rush, Colorado, to a mysterious space studies company and MUFON; from Roswell and Area 51 to the Pentagon and beyond; to underground secret military caverns and Indian sacred sites; beneath strange, unexplained lights in the sky; and into corporations that obstruct and try to take over investigations.

Inspiring and terrifying, this true story will keep you up at night, staring at the sky and wondering if we really are alone and what could happen next.
