    Do humans have an innate knowledge of the true fabric of reality? Why is it that some experiencers of precognition get enough details to change the course of their fate while others are simple teased by it? We consider some of the most unusual reports of precognitive visions and discuss the possibility that a hidden intelligence may heavily influence them.
    Then in our Plus+ extension we dive into the concept of “Extraordinary Awakenings" and hear how intense psychological suffering can lead to dramatic shifts in personality and ego.

    Angry Storm God

    An ancient and secretive society that hides in the inner circles of modern Freemasonry may be attempting to bring about a New World Order through any means necessary. In a controversial and compelling tome, Christopher Knight and Alan Butler detail the ancient origins of a secret society that shaped the modern world. Known as the Star Families, they remained unseen by the outside world yet their influence and infiltration of powerful institutions allowed them to pursue their objective to unify humanity under one god.
    Then for our Plus+ members, we get an update on the strange experiences of David Eckhart and his alien intrusions, hear of the wild glowing eyed Guru, and ponder the concept of the drug fuelled Reptilian invasion of Earth.

    The Welsh Pyramid

    A strange event descended upon a sleepy Welsh town in early 2016 when what started as a mild annoyance of aircraft noise exploded into an inter-dimensional occurrence that dramatically changed the lives of everyone involved.

Refusing to be intimidated and silenced, Caz tells her story of witnessing a UFO crash and subsequent journey in understanding the profound implications it has for humanity.

    Animistic Encounters

    Animistic Encounters

    Hidden deep within our minds is the mysterious unconscious and from its deep well springs most of who you are. Your likes, dislikes, and indeed most of your personality all emanate from its imponderable depths. However recent advances in scientific research are helping us to better understand the unconscious and its influence upon us. We take a look at the neuroscience from a new angle and consider how magic is essential to your mind. We also hear the story of a German woman who meets and interacts with the elemental spirits of her home. 
    Then in our Plus+ extension we dive into encounters with auric fish entities, haunted object battles and crystal shop espionage.

    Gateways of the Initiates

    Gateways of the Initiates

    A civilization of immortals, advanced enough to be able to travel through interdimensional gateways all over the Earth would most likely stop at nothing to keep their secrets hidden. Periodically however, new members need to be brought into the fold to maintain their numbers; these new members are said to be called "The Initiates”. On this episode we discuss the unusual theories of a French scientist who suggests there is a secret group of immortals walking among us who have the ability to chart the course of humanity.
    Then for our Plus+ members we visit the story of the controversial Betz sphere and consider its influence on UFO sightings, paranormal phenomena and an abandoned mansion.

Stop being a failure, stop being a loser. Subscribe already.

MU has ruined me for every other podcast ever! I don’t even bother looking elsewhere anymore. I’ve been listening since 2011/12 and the show has only gotten better and better each year. (Like a lot better)

The hosts only take a few personal weeks off a year and put out a metric ton of content for MU Plus+ subscribers the rest of the time. The production quality is exquisite. Their approach is fun and witty even when the subject matter is tough or terrifying. They have opened my mind more than probably any other earthly source.

Sincere thank you Ben and Aaron! I know it is very hard work but it is appreciated. Worth. Every. Penny.

Good but..

I like the subject matter in all their episodes, sometimes they jump around a bit to much but it’s still pretty easy to follow. My biggest issue is their horrible jokes, the other reviewer was right they are disrespectful to their subjects sometimes, they make insensitive jokes at other peoples expense, and make dumb sex jokes that aren’t even funny. I’m only writing this in hopes they will read it and edit themselves better, or maybe Australia is just behind with the times…

Bunzby ,

Excellent

I’ve been a long time listener of Mysterious Universe. This is by far my favorite podcast. I struggle to find other “paranormal” or “weird” pods that I can bear to listen to because the content and production level of MU is incredible. I’ve finally been listening to the back catalog and it’s been fun to hear Aaron and Ben’s relationship grow and their banter become even funnier over the years. Highly recommend!
