Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst will be watching the skies on the regular for a newly announced podcast series focusing on UFOs and conspiracy theories.

The iconic frontman's as-yet-untitled show is one of several projects being produced for comedian/commentator Bill Maher's in-the-works Club Random Studios podcast network, which will also feature a yet-to-be-detailed program hosted by Smashing Pumpkins bandleader Billy Corgan.

Premiere dates for either program have yet to be announced, but Maher told Variety that his developing roster of on-air hosts comprises "people who I would be interested in listening to."

"I never knew Fred or Billy," he said, though both musicians appeared on his Club Random podcast in 2023. "But something good happens there, and I can feel like I'm best friends for life with somebody who I just talked to for an hour and a half. That's the quality we want — a nighttime feel."

Durst himself has yet to formally comment on the upcoming podcast series, though the "Nu-Metal Cowboy" already shared his expertise to an alien cause while narrating the 2023 documentary The Lost Century- And How to Reclaim It!, which, according to the filmmakers, is about how "illegal UFO secrecy has cost humanity hundreds of years of spiritual, cultural and technological development."

Of Club Random Studio's overall M.O., Maher also noted that "we talk like no one can cancel us," so expect some unfiltered UFO talk from Durst in the future.

...Then again, the Limp Bizkit frontman already confessed he was "just an alien" all the way back on Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water deep cut "Livin' It Up."

Speaking of which, if you're looking for a fine beverage to swig once's Durst's podcast drops, might we suggest stocking up on 7-11's bizarre, likely really salty, and seemingly un-Bizkit-sanctioned new weiner seltzer?
