|Budd Hopkins from raw documentary footage|
I was involved in a documentary on UFO abductions back in 2007. The project was never completed but we came away with some really interesting footage. What I'm sharing here is the audio from a video interview with Budd Hopkins in his New York City home. You can hear the street noise in the background, a sound I truly love.

It was tense listening to the person I was then, and I was obviously stressed out as I added new audio seven years later. I swear in frustration within the first few seconds of this podcast. I should probably edit that out, but it really seems to accurately capture my state of mind.
This was a hard thing for me to create. Partially my own emotions are still so raw, but more that it just feels sad that Budd is gone. I feel absolutely blessed that I had the chance to spend time with this thoughtful and kind man.
During the conversation I reference some stuff that Budd and I had covered earlier in the day. Unless you've really immersed yourself in this blog you might not be able to follow what we are talking about. Rather than edit in verbal explanations I'm just putting links to the relevant posts below.
