EPISODE 29 | The Notorious M.I.B.
One of the most sinister UFO-related phenomena - the Men in Black. Sure, they dress like the Blues Brothers, but they are super creepy and often menacing. And also pretty ineffective. And while they may have been created wholesale by a hoaxer, people have been reporting, and even photographing, them for years.
We're releasing this episode a day early to confound the MIBs.
