How the hell do you set the stage for a conversation with a living legend like the one and only, Erich Von Daniken? While this highlight reel doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface, a small handful of Erich’s accolades include writing the 1968 best selling and global phenomenon Chariots of the Gods. Did Erich stop there? Nope; not even close. Since the release of Chariots of the Gods, Erich has written over 40 books – no big deal. His works have been translated into 32 languages and have sold over 63 million copies worldwide. Also, no big deal. As if a mountain of best selling titles wasn’t enough, Erich has starred in countless documentaries and television shows including Ancient Aliens, several Gaia programs, the 1970 film Chariots of the Gods, and many more.
This week, Erich Von Daniken joins Andrew and CK to discuss his body of work, his career, his most recent release The Gods Never Left Us. As the true sequel to Chariots of the Gods, this best selling book explores the idea that ancient aliens have not only been involved with humanity for thousands of years but that extraterrestrials have been present within the progress and development of the human species from day one. At 84 years old, the charismatic and passionate Von Daniken presents his research in an accessible way that will melt your brain and force you to question everything.
