Micah Hanks is a writer, podcaster, researcher and speaker whose interests cover a variety of subjects, including history, archaeology, philosophy, science, and the future of humankind.

Along with his podcasts, Micah is a writer who has authored a number of books, and has contributed many essays, articles and blogs to various publications. He has also worked as a narrator, lending his voice to several audiobooks, radio programs, and other recorded projects over the years.




With more than a decade in podcasting, writing and publishing, and the study of history and science, Micah Hanks has more than just a passion for knowledge. His study of world affairs, society, culture and philosophy over the years have helped shape his nonpartisan outlook on current events, and always with a nod to the lessons history can teach us.

Micah has interviewed a number of scientists and experts over the years in the fields of science, technology, philosophy, history and other disciplines, and has made contributions of his own to a number of projects in these areas. Along with his science advocacy, Micah is a “hopeful skeptic,” taking a critically-minded approach to subjects that include consciousness research and unusual phenomena in nature; for instance, Micah advocates scientific research into unexplained aerial phenomena (UAP), more commonly known as “UFOs.” His interest in the history, and possible scientific  explanations for aspects of the phenomenon, have led him to a primarily skeptical position on the subject. You can learn about some of Micah’s UAP research here.

In 2016, he began working closely with the archaeological community in the Southeastern United States, in an effort to understand relationships between early North Americans and their environment at the end of the last ice age. Separate from his archaeological interests, Micah has studied and written about space exploration, artificial intelligence, and the future of humanity.

Micah has appeared on several television and radio programs, and has lectured in America and Europe on a variety of subjects that include archaeology, consciousness studies, and historical mysteries.
