“Part 1 of 3 – Jer welcomes Jeff Ritzmann to his vlog to talk about some of the fallout from Jer’s Emma Woods cover story in UFO Magazine. Together, they challenge the use of hypnosis in alien abduction research as well as the sleazy stylings of one Gene Steinberg, where Emma is concerned.”

“I address why I think ufology is a boys club. This segues into an untidy little rant on how Gene Steinberg’s disinformation campaign against Carol Rainey, Emma Woods, and Paratopia–as well as Paul Kimball’s taking pot shots at me–is really missing the point. The point is this: While they snipe at the people making a positive difference in ufology, they are hurting those who need protection: the human research subjects of book authors using hypnosis to probe their minds for “memories” they can sell to the public.”

“My final word on the David Jacobs nonsense and all things ufology for a while.”
