Since 2010, the TV show Ancient Aliens has spewed half-baked theories, put forth crackpot "experts" and polluted the airways with (sometimes hilarious) misinformation. My guest today on Religious Wars uses his background in archeology and critical thinking skills to go through the infamous TV series and see if any of the claims can be backed up.

On his show Digging Up Ancient Aliens, Frederik goes through the series episode by episode with a special guest, and some how this has not driven him insane yet. Frederik has even started another show Archaeologists and UFO’s, where he takes a shorter look at specific objects from the archeological record, and weighs the extraterrestrial claims about them.

In this conversation, we cover the beginnings of Digging Up Ancient Aliens, what the people on the show actually think, and how Ancient Aliens has a much broader impact culturally thank just crackpot theories, and much more.
