The Closer To Venus Podcast will feature interviews on metaphysical/ spiritual topics such as past lives, reincarnation, astral travel, Ascension, mediumship, consciousness science, the quantum realm, angels, spirit guides, shamanism, ancient civilizations, star beings, or just about anything that Edgar Cayce wrote about. It’s important to note that we are not experts, only everyday people who have questions about spirituality and how to get to “higher ground”. We just don’t feel that traditional religious and scientific beliefs offer satisfactory answers to questions such as why are we here, what is our purpose and where are we going. If you have questions or would like to hear a particular speaker on our show, send us an email. If you like our show, please don’t forget to share this podcast with your friends and on social media.

This is a tough subject to approach, and I first congratulate the bravery to dive into it. Great discussions with honesty as base to start from. Engaging debates and observations. A great incursion into the potentiality of the “beyond”.
Definitely check this out!
What a cool podcast! Johnny Burke is so easy to listen to and he keeps his guests talking at a pace that is easy to follow considering the complicated nature of his chosen topics. I check in every week and he never disappoints!
A relaxed and easy approach to complex topics.
A friend told me about this podcast and being curious about such topics as reincarnation, past life experiences, the proverbial: who are we what are we doing here? Etc... I had to check it out and I’m glad I did. Johnny Burke has done a great job at getting a great group of guests to come on his Podcast and discuss these timeless topics. What makes this podcast special is the relaxed and easy going approach and tone which Johnny Burke sets and which his guests are more than happy to adopt as they navigate through these fascinating questions and answers which have crossed all of our minds at one point or another. The guests range from different backgrounds and experiences and all are respected professionals in their fields. It’s exciting and wonderful to start hearing similarities, across the episodes, and as common threads begin to become evident: the main one being that love is the most powerful/ significant energy and that it is the one thing that holds everything together. Great podcast-awesome approach!!!
