Intrepid Magazine… Boldly Going.

Have you ever questioned what conventional historical studies tell us about humanity’s ancient past? How often do you wonder if there is more to the world around us than what our everyday existence would reveal? Many would balk at these kinds of ideas, and not just because respect for the principles set forth within a consensus view of our reality requires less work; it is all but demanded by our mainstream academic institutions today. As the late zoologist Ivan Sanderson once wrote of his frustrations with establishment opinions, “is it that these people cannot face rewriting all the textbooks?”

Intrepid Magazine is a publication that focuses on subjects that are typically shunned by mainstream news sources, and while maintaining respect for the consensus body of scientific and historical knowledge, we also seek to explore more thoroughly the potentials that exist beyond accepted beliefs and popular opinions.

In large part, the summation of humankind’s knowledge may be an accurate representation of what we claim to know about our origins. And yet, it also seems, at times, that is has become less couth for the modern thinker to exhibit skepticism when weighing the possible alternatives in relation to human history, philosophical thought, and scientific understanding of the natural world. Such things as peer review and use of the scientific method are often invoked (and rightly so) in relation to the serious study of phenomenon taking place around us. And yet, at times it seems that these virtuous applications are conditional in their legitimacy; science will accept your research only as long as one limits the scope of their interest to conventional models and ideas.

Intrepid Magazine advocates an open minded, but also a reasonable approach to understanding the strange and unusual, history’s mysteries, and other questions that remain unanswered about our world.

We live in a culture that is willing to be bought and sold, and therefore if you want the big dollars that only larger corporate backers can provide, you must also be willing to compromise your principles, and peddle ideas and products that best suit their interests. Sadly, the unconventional ideas that Intrepid Magazine chooses to focus on, such as ancient mysteries, anomalous phenomenon, political conspiracies, and other “edgy” subject matter seldom interests the pursuits and agendas of such financial backers. That, in large part, is why people like us remain frustrated; getting an unconventional message to the masses—even if it’s a reasonable one—is far easier said than done… and it’s nearly impossible without at least marginal funding.

Intrepid Magazine proudly exists within a framework of individualist ideas and expression that has existed throughout the last century, and looks boldly toward the bright dawn of tomorrow. Reminded of the words of the late William F. Buckley Jr,  “It stands athwart history, yelling Stop, at a time when no one is inclined to do so, or to have much patience with those who so urge it.”

We’re here, and here we will remain. We’re Intrepid Magazine, and we’re boldly going.

UFONUT Team

UFOnut-Post-Interactive

Matt Morgan, Debbie Ziegelmeyer, Trina Bivens and Chuck Zukowski.

This team is all about keeping it the family. For the past 26 years Chuck Zukowski has been researching and investigating the UFO/Paranormal phenomenon and for the past 10 years, he has worked with his sister, Debbie Ziegelmer, the current Missouri MUFON State Director. Between the two of them is a litany of events and excursions into the unknown. We should call them Z-squared.

In addition to their explorations as siblings, they are occasionally joined by the co-owners of Post Interactive, Inc., Trina Bivens and Matt Morgan. Since joining forces in 2009, Post Interactive has documented the work of Chuck and Debbie in a the series of UFOnut Episodes and occasionally step in to help on various investigation tasks when necessary. They look like they are definitely enjoying themselves.

Chuck approaches his investigations with an analytical understanding, making sure to address all human known possibilities before venturing into the non-human or paranormal aspects of the sightings. This approach ensures his investigations are more plausible and skeptic proof. Chuck has lectured on the Roswell incident, Animal Mutilations, and on other various UFO associated investigations. From time to time Chuck is asked to teach training seminars discussing his experience and investigation techniques.

Chuck and Debbie have contributed thousands of hours to the research and study of a variety of Ufology topics. It is unclear as to whether they’ve had their own experiences with off-planet intelligence or have simply chosen to keep it well under wraps. We thank them for their longstanding efforts in promoting conscientious investigations.

Trina and Matt, co-owners of Post Interactive (PI), produce the episodic video series for UFOnut and occasionally assist Chuck with investigations. They’ve been working with Chuck since 2009 after a random encounter at what came to be known as their Paranormal Starbucks. It’s always an adventure cutting away from their normal production work to assist Chuck and document his work.

I asked Chuck a few things and here’s his response:

What got you started in the field?

 As long as I remember I’ve always been interested in Ufology. I lived in a small town, Safford, Arizona until I was nine years old. I vaguely remember before my family moved from Arizona to California, I had a UFO sighting. I saw strange lights hovering in the sky through my bedroom window. Because it was so long ago, I can’t guarantee what I remember actually happened or if I’m imagining it happened, but through my life talking with my mother and my aunt, her sister, they both had experiences when they were children in that area too! Did I see something as a child that pushed me into the realm Ufology? Only regression could tell, and I haven’t done that…. yet.

How do you see your work progressing over the years and what are the simple and profound things you’ve learned?

I actually see myself getting closer to finding convincing evidence. With every investigation I do, I locate another piece of the puzzle. Eventually I’ll have enough pieces to see the puzzle without completing it. As for what simple and profound things have I learned? That’s easy. The simple thing I’ve learned is; Life is bigger and more complex than the average person realizes and can comprehend. The profound thing I’ve learned is; We are not the only intelligent inhabitants on this planet!

No matter where you are, no matter what time of day it is, stop what you’re doing (if it’s safe) and take a moment to look around and absorb your environment, you may just see or experience something you can’t understand.

Martin Willis & Michael Lauck – Podcast UFO

Podcast UFOMartin Willis and Michael Lauck, along with some support staff, are dedicated Ufologists. Their Podcast UFO series is a steady stream of information to the curious and seasoned researcher. We’ve snagged some content from their website to share with you.

The subject of UFOs has fascinated Martin since his youth, yet he was on the fence about the subject. He experienced a sighting in 2006 in Carmel Valley, CA, that solidified his beliefs that UFOs really do exist.

Since this time, Martin has paid attention to what others have to say about the phenomenon with an open mind. Pondering what UFOs may be, or if they are possibly extraterrestrial helped spaenhanced-2rk his interest to another level. In the last number of years, Martin has become interested in astronomy and always maintained a strong scientific fascination of our vast universe.

Martin feels certain that we are not alone and thinks it is possible that some small part of our government knows that and keeps it from us. As a seasoned podcast host, and armchair UFOlogist, he created Podcast UFO in November, 2011.

Martin’s mission is to provide a place where anyone could interact and be heard who had a UFO experience or insight on the subject. Martin is an artist as well as a longtime antique & fine art appraiser. His varied interests are in arts, nature, scuba diving, humor, travel and our mysterious cosmos.

Open Minds Radio talks with Willis about his sighting, some of his favorite guests, and his coverage of the 2013 Center for UFO’s Symposium in North Carolina.

Michael Lauck is a freelance writer and producer. He became interested in UFOs at an early age Avatar2because of 1970s television programs such as Project UFO and In Search Of….

He has seen an unidentified flying object, but describes his sighting as “relatively unspectacular,” reporting that both the stealth bomber and White Knight launch vehicle were more interesting. In his spare time he trains in Chinese martial arts, does pen and ink illustrations and, according to his wife, watches too many kung fu and zombie films.

You can find them at Podcast UFO.
