The Ufology Tarot with Greg Bishop | Talking Weird #39

Interested in “facts that don’t fit” from an early age, in 1991, Greg Bishop co-founded a magazine called THE EXCLUDED MIDDLE, which was a journal of UFOs, conspiracy research, psychedelia and new science. It ceased publication in 1999. WAKE UP DOWN THERE!, which anthologized many of the articles and features, was published in 2000 by Adventures Unlimited Publishing.Greg’s second book was PROJECT BETA: THE STORY OF PAUL BENNEWITZ, NATIONAL SECURITY, AND THE CREATION OF A MODERN UFO MYTH (2005 Simon & Schuster/ Pocket Books), which documented a government campaign of disinformation perpetrated against an unsuspecting U.S. citizen. WEIRD CALIFORNIA, a portrait of strange and eerie history and places in the Golden State, was released by Sterling Publishers and Barnes & Noble in 2006. Greg contributed about 75% of the material and photos.From December 2007 to November 2011, Greg blogged for the UFO and paranormal site Ufomystic. His last book was IT DEFIES LANGUAGE. It is composed, for the most part, of entries from that blog along with older material and brand new articles written just for the collection. In 2019, along with co-writer Adam Gorightly, he co-wrote A IS FOR ADAMSKI: THE GOLDEN AGE OF THE CONTACTEES about the UFO contact movement.For two years, Greg hosted THE HUNGRY GHOST, a radio show of interviews and music airing on pirate FM station KBLT in Los Angeles.
