This week, we’re sitting down to discuss a series of videos released by Carol Rainey, the wife of Budd Hopkins, that has had a massive impact on our view of the Linda Napolitano abduction case. Linda Napolitano was a simple New York housewife, at least until November 30, 1989, when in the middle of the night she was abducted by aliens and made to float above the Manhattan sky until she entered a UFO. Believe it or not, events only get stranger from there! Information revealed during Carol Rainey’s documentation of interactions between Linda and Budd made things much clearer to us. Join us as we try to make sense of this tangle of bizarre incidents.
