audio conversation with Kathleen Marden

Author, researcher and abductee, Kathleen Marden
Kathleen Marden is mostly known for being the niece of Betty and Barney Hill, the first widely publicized UFO abduction case. She has also been an abduction researcher for over two decades as well an author working with both Stanton Friedman and Denice Stoner.

Kathleen recently came forward, publicly sharing her own abduction experiences. This act of bravery is the focus of our interview. This is a big deal, and I wanted to explore the reasons and emotions for her profound decision.

She authored the 2007 book Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience: The True Story of the World's First Documented Alien Abduction, with nuclear physicist Stanton T. Friedman.

Her more recent book is The Alien Abduction Files: The Most Startling Cases of Human Alien Contact Ever Reported co-authored by Denise Stoner.

Her website is linked HERE.

Also posted (below) is a youtube video of her recent talk, where she stands on a podium and comes forward with her own contact experiences. This powerful confession happened at the Experiences Speak conference in September of 2014. This event was organized by Starborn Support, a team of dedicated experiencers and therapists performing the much needed role of supporting individuals who are dealing with the challenging issues of their own experiences.

What an absolute treat this interview was: two of the nicest, most trustworthy voices in the whole field (IMHO) having a fascinating conversation. I can't thank you enough for your podcast. It just keeps getting better and better.

Unlike most of her critics, I don't think Kathleen is particularly unscientific in her research, but I do perceive a clear bias in her treatment of the abduction phenomenon. Why makes her so certain that we're dealing with Extraterrestrials? Why make the distinction between 'ET experiences' VS 'Paranormal experiences', when they could very well be one and the same? The seeming differences just caused by our particular worldview.

Just as James Fox and other researchers look at the abduction phenomenon as "going too far," perhaps Kathleen's ETH bias would make her react the same way if she encountered experiences stories in which a plethora of phenomena were deeply intertwined --Bigfoot encounters, ghostly apparitions, fairy sightings, etc.

In that regard, she *is* somewhat unscientific, because she's allowed herself to reach a certain conclusion, and approach the research from there, instead of letting the research lead you wherever it may be with an absolute lack of preconceptions.

PS: But I don't want to be overtly negative in my appraisal of her work. And I agree with you Mike, that she was very brave in coming forward as an experiencer. Although part of me can't help wondering whether the seemingly independent insistence to do so by unrelated parties, was actually a clever deception by the phenomenon itself, in order to discredit her even further.

They promised her more revelations in exchange from her own. Maybe they won't respect their end of the bargain...

Betty and Barney Hill are not the first documented abduction case. If the stories about fairies are to be believed, then it has been going on for a long time. (Some rock art paintings are said to be depictions of aliens in space helmets and suits, as well, although it can be debated what is actually being represented in these strange creatures.)
