Great podcast!! Funny, informative and generally entertaining!
I recently was blocked from their Facebook group for making a critical comment about Nick Redfern`s article. In the article Redfern suggested that numerous well known UFO encounters such as Rendlesham... the Villas Boas case.. Betty and Barney Hill case and so on were all government experiments and that the UFO field has been duped!! Well I am sure many would agree with me that the evidence for goverment experiments is flimsy at best and I voiced my criticisms. The next day I discovered that my comment had been removed and I had been banned from commenting on their posts. So these guys are probably the fascists of the Australian paranormal world and have an incredibly thin skin. Anyone who has given them less than 2 stars you will probably be blocked. lol. If you are looking for a serious paranormal podcast or forum group where people can discuss, debate and critique on occasion then I would suggest to look elsewhere.
I love reading Mysterious Universe reviews because they almost completely mirror the reviews that my pod gets by these childlike, easily-offended, ANTIFA-loving crybaby SJW snowflakes that demand their language be used and their ideology be adopted by the entire world. Oh, and if you don't, you're a racist, transphobic, misogynist, sexist, proud boy, "MAGAt", trump-loving, Nazi. These morons are cultural terrorists and I'm glad that MU has decided to ignore and mock them, which is exactly what they deserve.
I was a steadfast listener of this podcast all the way back in 2012 and 2013. They would tell spooky and weird stories about ghosts, aliens and the general paranormal, but always with a tinge of skepticism. It was fun! Then the desperation seemed to set in and they started pushing their paid premium podcast more and more. Over time, they stopped telling the fun, spooky, weird stories and started delving more in to generic pop culture news, where they were often childish, crude and annoying. Eventually I stopped listening in 2014 after one of the hosts went on a tirade about how people weren't giving them enough money, accosting the freeloaders who weren't paying for their "premium" stuff. Six years later, Mysterious Universe somehow still survives (as it turns out, podcasts don't actually cost much money to produce). And wondering if they ever recovered from their spate of crass pop-culture commentary, I unfortunately discovered the hosts have transitioned in to what is basically just bigotry, now disguised as "edgy comedy." They attack minority groups and spin wildly destructive conspiracies that aren't entertaining, they're just scary and sad. This podcast used to be one of my favorites, but now the mask is clearly off for Mysterious Universe. These guys are bad, bad news, and I advise you to stay far away, because they are clearly drinking from tainted wells.
Mysterious Universe has definitely changed. I understand this podcast is not just about paranormal encounters, but it was the first podcast I found a couple years ago when searching under the paranormal genre. I remember having my attention grabbed, being so interested and wanting to listen to the next episode asap. They have definitely branched outside of paranormal, which is fine since they state their podcast is about more, but I have the worst time trying to stay interested now. Almost every other or every few podcasts are interviews and for me they have been flat and lacked the grab factor. I know for some this is more of what they're interested in so definitely give it a chance, the slower interview type style just isn't my taste.
I have been with this podcast since episode 3, It's been a staple in my everyday listening, until now...This past year it has turned from the best podcast to one of the lamest and uninteresting podcasts to listen to. They have lost their fight. Update: I cannot believe how bad this podcast has gotten! I can't be the only one that thinks this. All these reviews of 5 stars. What? Are you people listing to the shows? It's just a book club of books that no one wants to read.
Rude and nasty not cool
Love love love love how they take these topics completely seriously but tinged with a health dose of doubt.
This is the podcast that got me obsessed with podcasts. This could be considered a gateway podcast into any other shows about the paranormal, esoteric, new technology, and new science. The hosts Aaron and Ben give a fair and balanced take on each topic along with a little skepticism. They explore topics with open minds but aren't afraid to call something out that they think is ridiculous. They are goofy and loveable, while at the same time bringing you great stories and thoroughly researched sources. This is my favorite podcast and one that I would recommend to anyone who has any type of interest in hearing about conspiracies or just hearing wild stories.
