one of the best podcasts. only reason 4 not 5 is the swallowing noise he makes, but thankfully only on the introduction I wish they could somehow filter it. I lower the volume but it doesn't help much


The Black Vault Radio with John Greenewald, Jr. dives deep into the world of secret U.S. Government and Military History spanning more than a half century. Using an archive of more than 3,000,000 declassified government documents as a starting point, Greenewald speaks to some of the most brilliant minds on the planet trying to get to the truth.

Episode Date
Ep. #115 – The CIA, UFOs and “Material”
In this short episode, I breakdown a few documents likely related, describing UFO "material" years after the U.S. government / military's investigation into UFOs known as Project Blue Book. The documents show that within the walls of the CIA, despite the U.S. government's public stance, officials and personnel continued to watch UFO developments. They even reference "material" and something "handcarried" to the office of one of the CIA scientists. What was it? A document? A post it note? Piece of wreckage?

Ep. #108 – Deep Dive into Luis Elizondo’s DoD Inspector General Complaint
For nearly five years, we've heard the story of Luis Elizondo. After retiring as a senior intelligence officer within the Department of Defense and being a former counter-intelligence agent within the U.S. Army; his efforts and his story have played a crucial role in the change in global conversation about UFOs and UAP. His actions and his story may have even played a role in motivating Congress to create legislation and pursue answers to a pressing mystery. But according to Elizondo, his actions actions didn't come without a cost. According to him, he was faced with "retribution, false information to the public, abuse by government authority and the illegal destruction of information" all by people within the very department he once worked for.
