Episode 63 Sources: Ancient Aliens with Annelise Baer & Fredrik Trusohamn

In this episode, Meagan is joined by two Substitute Sisters – archaeologist and television producer, Annelise Baer, and the host of the podcast Digging Up Ancient Aliens (and also an archaeologist), Fredrik Trusohamn, to talk about everything Ancient Aliens. Our discussion includes the origins of the ancient astronauts hypothesis that inspired it, behind the scenes info from Annelise’s time as a researcher for the show, and the not-so-extraterrestrial origins of some of the Ancient Aliens team’s favorite archaeological sites.
