We begin with Neil's bio/background, how he ended up in Hong Kong and how he became interested in UFOs. This leads to some discussion on the encounters that Neil has had with extraterrestrials, both early in his childhood and later in life. From there, Neil gives us some general background on Hong Kong, its history as a British colony, the 1999 handover of Hong Kong to China, and the surprising change in the area as a result of the event. We also find out about the contemporary political situation in Hong Kong and how autonomous they are from mainland China's rule.

Diving into UFO discussion, we begin with the history of UFO reports in Hong Kong / China and how far back these stories go. Neil also details some of the present situation in China with regards to Ufology. He talks about some of the more famous Chinese UFO cases. He tells us about some of his attempts to research present day Chinese abduction cases and the unique roadblocks that he has encountered while trying to do that research. This segues into Neil explaining why he tries not to get too involved in the Chinese scene.

He also shares some stories of how he has had his lectures disrupted by, he claims, NSA agents. This leads to Neil telling us about the Hong Kong UFO Club, their founder, and some of the problems the club faces. He also shares an amazing story about the Hong Kong UFO club's troubles while trying to set up an academic program with one of the country's universities.

From there we discuss key cases in Hong Kong and Neil tells us about his amazing UFO encounters at the turn of the millenium. Neil goes on to enlighten us as to the cultural differences between the Western world and Hong Kong and why they seem to have no famous UFO cases pre-2000. This segues into Neil detailing the non-history of organized UFO studies in Hong Kong and how the Hong Kong UFO Club is the first such organization. We also find out how extensive UFO studies have been in China over the years.

We play Devil's Advocate and find out what Neil thinks of the idea that perhaps the UFO sightings over Hong Kong and China are actually Chinese black projects. This leads to some discussion on Neil's work with alternative energy, notably drawing energy from water. He also tells us about a strange UFO encounter he had while on business in LA.

Looking at official government studies of UFOs in Hong Kong, he tells us about the proverbial "Project Checkbook" and why UFOs seemingly aren't of concern to the power brokers in HK. Our conversation returns to China to talk about the UFO groups there and we find out what exactly they do and how much input they get from the Chinese government. He tells us about the newest and most progressive UFO group in China, which brought Stanton Friedman over to the country in 2006.

This leads to Neil musing on the "intensity" of the world right now, not just in UFO sightings but in the natural disasters and even in the form of the present financial crisis. He speculates on what this increasing drama could bring to the world stage.

Following that, we look at another pillar of influence on the UFO issue: the media. Neil tells us about what the general attitude of the Hong Kong media is to the phenomenon. He gives us an idea of what the general attitude of the media is to UFOs: pro, con, or centrist. Neil also tells us about how extensive the role of debunkers are to the UFO scene in Hong Kong. Looking at another aspect of Ufology in Hong Kong, we find out about the perspective of the everyday people in that country with regards to UFOs.

We then discuss Neil's website exopoliticshongkong.com and find out what he sees as the role of his group in Hong Kong. We then ask Neil how dangerous it is to be pushing an expolitical agenda in Hong Kong and China, where agitating the goverment over UFO secrets may prove costly. We find out how extensive Neil's dealings with the Chinese government have been, either face-to-face or via intermediaries.

Continuing our look at Chinese Ufology, we find out about the scientific tenor regarding UFOs there and if the scientific community is more open to discussing UFOs than in America. In light of the recent UFO information dump in Europe, we find out if China has released any information about UFOs either via the government or the military. Neil also tells us about a startling revelation that did come out from the head of Chinese Ufology, Sun Shi Lee. We then hear about the Chinese media and how they report on the UFO phenomenon.

Next we discuss UFO disclosure and why Neil doesn't foresee China being the first nation to break the "truth embargo." Going way off the beaten path, we find out if the long-standing rumour is true about China teaching in schools that the moon landing was a hoax.

Heading towards the close, we find out where Neil sees the UFO phenomenon going in the future. We find out what's next for Neil and the Hong Kong Exopolitics movement, including plans for the "world's largest UFO conference" towards the end of 2009.
