I apologize to you All, But episode 67 will be delayed by 1 week. My skills at the online "selling" of my talents have been weighed and found wanting.I'm making superb progress in transforming my resume / portfolio from the scribblings of a clown act into something that might convince someone to hire me - BUT the time it is taking has eaten away completely at my show production schedule. Thank you Extremely much for your patience. All input and news for #67 will be aired next week.

Since there will be no further "Corrugated Rants", I've decided
to set aside extra special blocks of audio as a new addition to the feed.

Simon of The Curio and anim5 delve into the topic in this first of several bonus episodes entitled "Open Ended Series". Individual sightings and events are not examined in detail. What receives the most attention is the topic itself.

Choose your reality.

The regular IDDFOS  podcast will be posted on its normal bi-weekly schedule next Sunday. 'Hope you enjoy this extra material - And please feel free to write in with your feedback regarding our treatment of the subject.

Ben Forum posts with much appreciated praise of the show, touching on the UFO topic and renewed considerations of what is 'real'. He's playing with time as well! Listening to IDDFOS alternating from most recent to oldest as he goes. Cool!

Curt the Camera Guy slows down from a high-speed Summer and catches us up on a full range of IDDFOS questions. No doubt, speeding up again to resume his journey.
