In 2010, her book UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record (Crown Publishing Group, 2010) was a New York Times bestseller.

She helped produce a 2011 documentary based on UFOs for the History Channel, made by Breakthru Films, an award-winning film company. Kean has been featured on CNN, MSNBC, FOX, The Colbert Report, and NPR and in USA Today, US News & World Report, and Columbia Journalism Review, among other media. She has been contributing articles to the Huffington Post since 2012, and has been recognized for her efforts to bring credibility to the controversial subject of UFOs through straightforward and honest reporting only on facts and official investigations.

In this capacity, she was the plaintiff in a successful, five-year Freedom of Information Act federal lawsuit against NASA, which had withheld information concerning a crash of an object in Kecksburg, Pennsylvania in 1965. In 2007, Kean co-organized a landmark Washington DC international press conference on official UFO investigations, which received media coverage around the world. She was also a producer for the 2009 independent documentary I Know What I Saw directed by James Fox. She co-organized a 2013 international conference providing a platform for scientists, government officials and journalists studying UFOs to present data, and she lectured at American University in 2014.

Previously, Kean worked as a freelance writer and radio producer. In the 1990’s she was an on-air host for a daily investigative news program on KPFA radio, a Pacifica station in California. She contributed articles to dozens of publications here and abroad including the Boston Globe, Philadelphia Inquirer, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Providence Journal, International Herald Tribune, Globe and Mail, Sydney Morning Herald, The Nation, and Journal for Scientific Exploration.. Her stories were syndicated through Knight Ridder/Tribune, Scripps-Howard, New York Times wire service, Pacific News Service, and the National Publishers Association. While spending many years reporting on Burma, Kean coauthored Burma’s Revolution of the Spirit: The Struggle for Democratic Freedom and Dignity (Aperture, 1994). She has contributed essays for a number of anthologies published between 1998 and 2009.


About Wendy Garrett:

Communicator, intuitive, artist, mystic, and host of "Conscious Living" on Empower Radio.

My world was transformed in 1997 when I awakened to an entirely new awareness of reality through a metaphysical shift. The spirit energy that collaborated with me to reveal new dimensions of being and spirit worlds with which we cohabit and co-create our reality is still with me. And that is what I bring to the table now - in each and every life experience: multidimensional awareness and metaphysical presence.

As a radio broadcaster, my experience runs the spectrum of formats including news, talk, and music. Reporter, jock, news anchor, talk host and co-host, announcer, voice talent, I back-burnered and downplayed my metaphysical life while I learned the trade, acquired new information and new skills, gained entry into the world of interviewing and met some amazing people.

Radio back-burnered when I detoured from news to finally allow my paranormal world to have center stage. Totally immersed through a dramatic series of events that triggered an entire redirect of my life, I wrote about the initial encounter in Talking to Nightlights. Truly, a new beginning, the rewards upgraded as I have continued my lessons and learning on that journey.

Writing shifted to blogging and a renewed interest in interviewing with a dedicated focus on metaphysical and spiritual topics that included spiritual awakening and shamanism, because that is my reality, and there were no radio broadcasters who talked or lived this lifestyle. I hear, see, feel, sense, smell energy beings, ghosts, angels and spirit guides and I learn more with each encounter. As a conscious co-creator, I go where I am called. One can ask better questions when they walk the talk. (To that end, I work with a paranormal group who investigates hauntings.)

We are the creators here. We are the change we seek and we are in the company of others in spirit form who add the element of wonder to the playing field. That is where magic lives. Join me for Conscious Living on Empower Radio. I feature others who may or may not add a metaphysical element but are bringing light, joy, wonder and awareness to the world in whatever creative endeavor they have chosen to pursue.

Open your mind to some extraordinary views.  Blessings and Light wherever your path calls you!
