The Micah Hanks Program
Tuesdays 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM (EST)
The Micah Hanks Program is a weekly podcast covering science and the mysteries of our universe. The show takes a critically minded approach to the study of our world, and each week Micah presents commentary and discussions with guests on subjects that include unidentified aerial phenomena (or UFOs), space and astronomy, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), myths and folklore, archaeology and ancient mysteries, artificial intelligence, futurism, cryptozoology, science fiction, and entertainment.
Every week, Micah takes his listeners to the boundaries of human knowledge, in search of the most fascinating and unusual topics our world has to offer. He is also the host of Sasquatch Tracks here on the UNX Network.
With more than a decade in podcasting, travel, writing and research, and the study of history and science, Micah Hanks has more than just a passion for knowledge. His study of world history, culture and philosophy over the years have helped shape his nonpartisan outlook on current events, and always with a nod to the lessons history can teach us.
Micah is a longtime advocate for scientific research into unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), more commonly known as “UFOs.” He is an affiliate member of the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies (SCU), as well as a frequent commentator and writer on the subject, and maintains an interest in the history, and possible scientific explanations for aspects of the phenomenon. You can learn about some of Micah’s UAP research here and here. Micah’s other interests include space studies, zoological mysteries and unusual phenomena in nature. A “hopeful skeptic,” he advocates a critically-minded approach to the study of these subjects. Be sure to visit Micah’s blog for more of his writing, research and ideas.
In 2020, Micah launched The Debrief with journalists Tim McMillan and MJ Banias. A news site and media enterprise which examines science and disruptive technology, The Debrief has closely followed developments related to the U.S. government’s collection and evaluation of information related to UAP.
After several years as a producer for iHeart Media (formerly Clear Channel Radio), Micah began podcasting in 2011. Micah has interviewed a number of experts over the years in the fields of science, technology, philosophy, history, archaeology, and other disciplines. You can find where to listen to all of Micah’s podcasts here.
In 2016, Hanks began working closely with the archaeological community in the Southeastern United States, in an effort to understand relationships between early North Americans and their environment at the end of the last ice age. This led to the cofounding of the Seven Ages Research Associates, and in 2018 he and the team produced a short documentary on the controversial Topper archaeological site in Allendale County, South Carolina, which can be seen here.
Micah is a frequent guest on podcasts and radio programs, and has been interviewed by Vice, Forbes, Investigation Discovery, CNN Radio, Coast to Coast AM, Hot Air, and a number of other outlets. He has also lectured in America and Europe on a variety of subjects that include archaeology, unidentified flying objects, and historical mysteries.
