Over the years I have been privileged to appear before many audiences -- in person and through the media of print, radio, television, and the Internet. I have spoken about my research, ranging from environmental science, paleontology, parapsychology, and the origins of religion, to ancient studies (such as the Great Sphinx, Göbekli Tepe, Easter Island, Markawasi, pyramids around the world, and the end of the last ice age). Recently interest has turned to the material and new discoveries put forth in my latest book, Forgotten Civilization: The Role of Solar Outbursts in Our Past and Future.

The Ancient Enigmas of Malta!
Friends: I invite you to join my wife and me in March of 2017 (from the 19th - 25th, including the spring equinox) for a spectacular 7-day tour of Malta. This wondrous Mediterranean island is home to some of the most mysterious sites and structures of the ancient world, including megalithic "temples" (Are they just temples or something more?), underground chambers (including the Hypogeum), and the world famous and deeply problematic "cart ruts" preserved in solid stone (What are they? Is this more evidence of a forgotten civilization?). Together we'll tour and discuss these enigmas, all the while partaking of the local hospitality and cuisine of modern Malta. Please visit the Sacred Sites Journeys website for details on this exciting trip.

Lots of Radio Interviews
For over twenty years I have had the pleasure of being interviewed on radio (and more recently podcasts, Internet radio, YouTube postings and the like) by dozens and dozens of hosts on as many stations. It would be extremely difficult for me to remember, much less list, all of the radio interviews I have done over the years. Each time I publish something (an article, a book, a new discovery) requests come in. I do appreciate and enjoy them, especially when listeners can call or write in with questions, but pre-recorded interviews are great too. As long as my schedule permits, I try to fulfill all requests for interviews. If you would like to interview me, feel free to contact me. Information on how to do this is on the Biography & Introduction page of this site.
