What is the Alien Kidnap Club podcast about?

Ask anyone if aliens exist, and they’ll probably be open to the idea, but tell them you’ve seen an alien and suddenly 'you’re making it up'.

If we’re open to alien life existing – why are we so sceptical about people’s accounts of alien contact?

Host Johnny Vaughan - star of Radio X's 4 Til 7 Thang - has had one thing happen to him that he simply cannot explain. One event that left him completely unable to understand what just happened; an experience that was ‘not-of-this-planet’. And he's still looking for answers.

In a series of six exclusive interviews, Johnny sits down and listens to abductees who claim alien contact has changed their lives forever, that they have been to the distant reaches of space and seen beings and places that we simply cannot imagine.

Watch the trailer for Alien Kidnap Club here:

Some of them believe they are aliens, that they are infinite and that they cannot die. Some say they have opened portals through space, can travel between alternate realities and have visited the centre of the sun.

All of them have a huge following, including sell out conferences, books, albums and even alien-guided therapies. Thousands of people like me and you buy tickets to see their shows, read their books and listen their experiences. So is there actually something credible to what they have to say?

Could they help to explain what Johnny has seen?

We don't know if anything these people tell him will definitively prove that there is other-life out there. We don't know if what they say will rule it out.

This podcast is not here to provide judgement. We just want you to listen and make up your own mind.

Welcome to Alien Kidnap Club.

All episodes will be available to listen to on Global Player from Wednesday 15th February and all available podcast platforms every Wednesday.
