Investigative reporter Linda Moulton Howe discussed four different topics. In her first report, she interviewed James Bamford who revealed startling details for a Wired.com article about how the National Security Agency (NSA) has turned its surveillance apparatus on the U.S. and its citizens, and is building a 1 million square foot data center in Utah that will have the ability “to collect and sift through billions of email messages and phone calls, whether they originate within the country or overseas.” Bamford described his interview with former NSA administrator William Binney, who said while holding his thumb and forefinger close together, “we are that far from a turnkey totalitarian state.”
In June of 2011, a Swedish treasure hunting company using side scan sonar picked up a very odd, round object about 200 feet in diameter on the bottom of the Baltic Sea, along with a second unknown object. Linda spoke with Peter Lindberg, of Stockholm, Sweden who made the discovery. Leading to or from both unidentified objects are tracks or skid marks implying the objects impacted together, and Lindberg suggested it could potentially have been an asteroid rather than a UFO. Compounding the mystery are straight lines on the large round object and arches that look like structure on the second object. Lindberg and his company plan to return to the site with more sophisticated gear in hopes of identifying the mysterious objects. Further details.
People in Clintonville, Wisconsin have been reporting earth-shaking, window-rattling booms since Sunday night, March 18, for three nights into Wednesday, March 21. Similar booms have also been heard in other states such as Michigan, Georgia, and Maine. Clintonville City Administrator Lisa Kuss told Linda, “We have checked gas lines, sewers, water pressures and consulted with meteorologists, seismologists, U. S. military, utilities experts and mining companies, but have come up empty-handed.” Though there was a small earthquake reported in Clintonville on March 20th, this doesn’t explain the similar booms heard in disparate locations. More.
For her 4th report, Linda interviewed nuclear engineer Arnie Gundersen, who explained how the Japanese are mixing the radioactive debris from the Fukushima incident with tons of non-radioactive debris and calling it “diluted” enough to be safe, which he considers to be absurd. A highly radioactive rabbit was found 60 miles away from Fukushima, he noted, adding that a certain percentage of the radioactivity has drifted over the Pacific Ocean and can be measured in detectable amounts, particularly in the Cascade Range of the United States.
Coast to Coast AM is a North American (U.S. and Canada) late-night radio talk
show that deals with a variety of topics, but most frequently ones that relate to either the paranormal or conspiracy theories. The program currently airs seven nights a week 1:05 a.m. — 5:00 a.m. Eastern Time (10:05 p.m. — 2:00 a.m. Pacific Time).

Format and subject matter
The Coast to Coast AM format consists of a combination of live callers and long format interviews. The subject matter covers unusual topics and is full of personal stories related to callers. While program content is often focused on paranormal and fringe subjects, sometimes world class scientists such as Michio Kaku and Brian Greene are featured in long format interviews. Topics discussed include the Near-death experience, climate change, cosmology, quantum physics, remote viewing, hauntings, contact with extraterrestrials, psychic reading, metaphysics, conspiracy theories, Area 51, crop circles, cryptozoology, Bigfoot, the Hollow Earth hypothesis, and science fiction literature, among others. Since the September 11, 2001 attacks, the events of that day (as well as alternate theories surrounding them) and current U.S. counter-terrorism strategy have also become frequent themes. George Noory, the main host since Art Bell retired, also takes interest in the 2012 phenomenon and believes something will happen.
