Project Blue Book podcast 2.1: Aidan Gillen and Michael Malarkey give intel on 'The Roswell Incident - Part I'

By Tara Bennett
Project Blue Book Season 2 The Roswell Incident Part 1

We're back with another season of SYFY WIRE's Project Blue Book: The Official Podcast, so let's talk about that gripping premiere episode of Season 2 of HISTORY's Project Blue Book, which dropped audiences into, arguably, the granddaddy of all UFO cases with "The Roswell Incident - Part I"

Yes, it's that Roswell, the New Mexico town that claimed a UFO crashed in the surrounding area in 1947. The ensuing chatter turned the immediate region into the epicenter for all things UFO and aliens.

In this episode, the crash landing already happened, but Dr. Hynek (Aidan Gillen) and Captain Michael Quinn (Michael Malarkey) follow General Harding (Neal McDonough) there, because an anonymous townsperson has threatened to expose evidence to the world of the extraterrestrial crash-landing six years ago.
