    Released: 24 March 2018 Duration: 62 minutes   Marsha Barnhart talks to Cheryl Costa, co-author of UFO Sightings Desk Reference. This is a one-of-a-kind reference book covering 15 years of UFO sightings within the United States. The information was gleaned from more than 120,000 raw reports made by citizens to either the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) or the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) between the years 2001 to 2015. The information is a statistical bonanza annotating the frequency, distribution and shapes of reported UFO’s, with accompanying graphs charts and charts, and broken down into states and state counties for all 50 states and the District of Columbia.   But this body of work, as amazing as it is, showcases just a portion of Cheryl’s talents: she is a published playwright, a film maker, a blogger with an international following, a talk radio host, an ordained Buddhist Nun, a Disclosure Activist and a devotee of Mind and Consciousness study. Cheryl is a native New Yorker. She is a US Military V

I'm Marsha Barnhart API's Chief of Investigations and your host for this Conversations episode. My guest today for this edition of API Conversations is Norio Hayakawa. Norio is a resident of New Mexico and probably best known for his work investigating the anomalous activities in and around the Dulce New Mexico area. He is a blogger, an activist and, as such, the driving force behind a citizen oversight committee...the Civilian Intelligence Central. Norio for a very long time has been looking into the strange world of what we collogquially term "UFO's" . His research and examinations in this area has taken him on quite a journey. In the beginning his belief centered on the ET Hypothosis. Now, after many years immersed in this field, he has come to see the phenomenon in a much more nebulous light. Our conversation was wide-ranging and he took great pains to maintain a skeptic
