You do not want to miss this one.

S03E23 - Veritas Nunquam Perit
Season three of Lost Origins is arguably the strongest in the show's history. Andrew and CK continued their quest for the truth and connected with some of the leading minds in the historical and investigative space. The two welcomed several new guests onto the show, reconnected with some old friends, journeyed to California for the Conference on Precession and Ancient Knowledge, and so much more. In today's episode, the team closes season by reviewing some of the top moments from recent conversations and share some important information regarding season four.
S03E22 - Mary Rodwell // The New Human
This week's episode of Lost Origins features all things extraterrestrials and altered reality. This week Andrew and CK link up with Mary Rodwell and the conversation does not disappoint.
Mary Rodwell is recognized internationally as one of Australia’s leading researchers and writers in the UFO and contact phenomenon areas. Mary is the author of the highly acclaimed book ‘Awakening: How Extraterrestrial Contact Can Transform Your Life’; and producer of EBE award winning documentaries:- Expressions of ET Contact: A Visual Blueprint, and Expressions of ET Contact: A Communication and Healing Blueprint. Her new book ‘The New Human’ which describes and documents star children was released in late 2016.
Mary is the Founder and Principal of Australian Close Encounter Resource Network (ACERN) which was established in 1997 to provide professional counseling, support, hypnotherapy and information to individuals and their families with ‘anomalous’ paranormal experiences and abduction-‐contact experiences. Mary is also Director and Chair of the Experiencer Support Programs of Dr Edgar Mitchell: Foundation for Research into Extra-‐terrestrial Encounters; and an advisory Committee member of Exopolitics. Mary also organized the inaugural 'Hidden Truths' international conference held in Perth, Western Australia in 2003.
Mary has researched more than 3000 cases and suggests extraterrestrial encounters are a global phenomenon and this is evident in the new humans referred to as star children. Mary affirms that star children exhibit a maturity and wisdom beyond their years and have an awareness and connection to spiritual realms. ‘Indigo’s’ or ‘crystal’ children as they are also known have telepathic abilities, are spiritually awakened, and can describe many species of non-‐human visitors with a feeling that they are as real to them as their ‘real’ family because they feel supported by them.
S03E21 - Brien Foerster // The Paracas Skulls
On today's episode of Lost Origins, Andrew and CK are able to complete a long-standing goal of the podcast - the two link up with Brien Foerster. A legend in the fields of alternative thought, the Paracas Skulls, lost ancient technologies, Gobekli Tepe, and more, Foerster is a wealth of knowledge. The conversation covers a massive amount of ground and the three discuss droves of enigmatic mysteries from around the globe.
Brien Foerster was born in Rochester, Minnesota, U.S.A. but grew up on the west coast of Canada. At age 11, he became fascinated with the Native art of the Haida native people and began carving totem poles, and other related art forms, learning from Native teachers. After completing an Honours Bachelor Of Science degree, Brien decided to take up carving and sculpture full time, at the age of 25. This included the creation of 13 full-size totem poles, dugout canoes, masks, bowls, boxes, and other Native style works. In 1995 he moved to Maui, Hawaii, and was hired as assistant project manager for the building of the 62-foot double-hull sailing canoe (ancestor of the modern-day catamaran ) Mo’okiha O Pi’ilani ( Sacred Lizard That Pierces The Heavens. ) This project lasted 2 years. There, having learned how to make Hawaiian outrigger canoe paddles from master carver Keola Sequiera, he started an online outrigger paddle business, which flourished internationally.
Peru became his next major area of interest. The study of the Inca culture led to his writing a book, A Brief History Of The Incas. He has become an authority on the megalithic works of South America and the perplexing ancient Elongated Headed people of the area and divides his time between Paracas and Cusco, Peru.
S03E20 - Tom Carey // Inside Hangar 18
In this week's episode of Lost Origins, Andrew connects with Tom Carey to discuss all things extraterrestrial.

Alongside his partner in crime, Donald Schmitt, the two have co-authored several books including UFO Secrets Inside Wright-Patterson, Witness to Roswell, The Children of Roswell, and The Roswell Incident. While Schmitt was unable to join the call, Andrew and Tom discuss their latest book UFO Secrets Inside Wright-Patterson, the events that began at Roswell's Area 51 and that ended at Wright-Patterson, an ultra-top-secret Air Force base in Dayton, Ohio, and the enigmatic Hangar 18.
S03E19 - Dr. David Miano // World of Antiquity

Adam Stokes and Near East connection to the Americas
Loved the episode where Adam Stokes lays out how the Book of Mormon peoples may have stemmed from Egypt and ancient Israel. Fascinating. Especially being that he isn’t Mormon/LDS and he’s made such a connection. Something I’ll look into more since I’ve always pondered if these connections existed. One negative comment I saw on here was laughable in that there’s supposedly “no evidence” of any of those connections existing. Umm...what?? As someone who graduated with a history degree studying precolombian cultures and ancient America, whoever made that comment is the same as someone saying there’s no evidence the earth is round. That’s a very uneducated comment whoever you are. Stokes has definitely found some facts that lead to even further possible knowledge that America was peopled by near easterners and such evidence is growing. But you have to take a moment and study such things before you have the knee jerk reaction against any claim that goes against what you learned thirty years ago in elementary school. Up until 2017/2018 people found it doubtful how widespread and sophisticated the Mayans were until Lidar technology came along and and blew such naysayers minds. Also, look at Adam Stokes’s credentials and actually take 5 minutes to study this topic before making such claims.
To the hosts and guests of this show, don’t mind the ignorant uneducated naysayers/doubters with their heads in the sand. This is a fabulous podcast. Keep it up!!
