This is the first time in a long time I have heard Von Daniken. He talks about his childhood and family and of course his books and some of his latest investigations. Right or wrong (and there has been allot wrong) he is the one most responsible (IMO) for breaking through the dogma of controlled thought that was once held in most archeological discussions by lay people and might have even influenced a few others along the way.. Few would disagree that Chariots of the Gods changed the way many look at stuff.. hahaha again right or wrong... Anyway for those who are interested and can listen enjoy...

He had little influence outside the popular world within the academic world he had little, we did at one time and some may still do so, use his writing as examples of bad thinking and misinterpretation.

The greatest breakthrough of dogma was by science and archaeologists to toss aside the Biblical domination of thought, prior to the work done the entire western world look at the ancient world thru the eyes of the Bible.

That was important EVD wasn't even close to having such an impact.

Erich von Daniken was an amateur who interpreted archaeological evidence in his own way, unhindered by the facts.

It would be wrong to call him a fraud, especially at the beginning of his career. I think he genuinely believed what he wrote. But it was a lot of nonsense — plausible nonsense. Poor fellow, he didn't know any better.

To have been the originator of a school of thought is quite an achievement, but in the end, we must put von Daniken down on the debit side of the ledger of human civilization and move on.
