In this episode Nathan, Jenn & Cal take a look at the infamous mid-90's documentary "Alien Autopsy - Fact or Fiction". Produced by Fox at the height of X-Files the influenced UFO/conspiracy craze and hosted by number one himself, AKA Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek Next Generation's Will Riker).
Alien Autopsy focuses on the alleged footage of the US Army performing an autopsy on an apparent alien being, whose body was extracted from the Roswell "UFO" Crash.

This documentary whilst not in anyway remarkable serves as an interesting historical artefact, showing how in the pre-internet age memes and fake news were still prevalent.
