LR043 – UFO Cults w/ Quinn Schwartz

Jason Dinges Lost Rhetoric, Podcast Leave a Comment

Quinn Schwartz from the Portland, OR “paranormal stoner punk” band GHOST FROG joins me to discuss a handful of UFO Cults/Religions that were created soon after the 1st sightings were reported in the late 1940’s in America.  We specifically discuss Ashtar Command, The Aetherius Society, The Uranius Academy of Science, Heaven’s Gate & Raelism. It’s a lot to cram into one episode but we roll through seamlessly, like professionals, to bring you a very crude but entertaining take on their sordid histories.
