Brandon Fugal: The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch

On episode 209 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we welcome Skinwalker Ranch owner, Brandon Fugal.


On the northwestern edge of Utah rests a mysterious ranch in the Uinta Basin. It's known as both a paranormal hotspot and a living laboratory of anomalous phenomena. To many of the indigenous Ute tribe and Navajo in the area, it's been deemed a “cursed land” by a shape-shifting witch known as the Skinwalker. This is how the 512-acre property would eventually become known as Skinwalker Ranch. Original owner, Terry Sherman got so spooked by the happenings that 18 months after moving there with his family, they packed up, sold the ranch and never looked back. It was eventually sold to Las Vegas real estate magnate and UFO enthusiast, Robert Bigelow. After years of studying the ranch with various scientists and researchers, the phenomena seemed to continue in countless ways, even prompting the Defence Intelligence Agency to fund the research through what has since been revealed as a subset of AATIP, the once-secret Pentagon UFO program. With very little repeatable evidence to show for it, Bigelow eventually handed the ranch off to another real estate mogul by the name of Brandon Fugal. Fugal, curious but very skeptical, tightened up security, hired a team of researchers to study the anomalies, and helped launch the History Channel television series, The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch, to document the team's findings. After a highly successful first season, the team returns May 4th on the History Channel for the Season 2 premiere. Today, Fugal joins us to talk all about what led him to purchase the ranch, some of the compelling evidence he and the team have uncovered, and what turned him from a skeptic to a believer in the blink of an eye.


The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch premieres Tuesday, May 4th at 10/9 central on The History Channel. To learn more, visit: https://bit.ly/3uZzWIq
