In 1973, Lee Speigel set off to investigate an increased number of reports of UFO reports in the United States. The result was an audio documentary produced for CBS that marked the first time military personnel and scientists came together to disclose their personal encounters. Producer and writer Lee Speigel reflects upon his decades of researching strange events and reveals some of his most phenomenal encounters in this interview with George Noory originally webcast October 7, 2013.
Lee Speigel has researched and reported unexplained phenomena and paranormal events for decades. During the 1970s and 80s, Speigel produced, wrote and hosted nearly 1,500 programs on the unexplained for NBC Radio. He spent seven years with ABC News before moving on to AOL News and The Huffington Post, where he has written hundreds of articles. He's also the only person in history to have produced, in 1978, a milestone UFO presentation at the United Nations. To this day, Speigel is always on the lookout for unusual, out-of-this-world stories.
