In Digging up Ancient Aliens, our host Fredrik uses his background in archaeology to discover what is genuine, fake, and somewhere in between on the TV show Ancient Aliens. 

This time we will go to some new territories and explore the Founding Fathers, aliens and philosophy. To make sense of all this, we have Aaron Rabinowitz, a philosopher, and lecturer at Rutgers University. He writes a column in The Skeptic and hosts Embrace the Void and Philosophers in Space podcasts.

We're discussing the Plurality of worlds theory, exploring the conspiracies in Washington DC, and how to meet people believing in these strange claims. It's an exciting and thoughtful journey through history and philosophy.

This episode is based on the claims in Ancient Aliens episode eleven of season three called "Aliens and The Founding Fathers" (S03E11).

Remember that you find a full bibliography and valuable resources at Since we left a few things out in this discussion, you'll find a short article about them on the episode page!
