And, in recent centuries, scientists and mystics alike have sought to explain this phenomenon. As you might imagine, not everyone agrees on what an aura could be -- or whether it exists -- in the modern day. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers

Poltergeists: Fact and Fiction

2020-09-0401:03:1010

In the world of spirits and apparitions, the poltergeist is a unique type of ghost -- one known for its alleged ability to move physical objects (often in violent, unpredictable ways), to target and torment specific human beings and, perhaps strangest of all, to suddenly, one day, disappear. While not everyone uses the name 'poltergeist,' legends of these and similar creatures occur in numerous civilizations throughout history. Some stories are proven hoaxes. But others, the true believers argue, are more difficult to explain. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers

Could human dreams really, in some way, predict the future? At first, it sounds like the stuff of science fiction... but the real-life answer may not be as clear-cut as the plot of a sci-fi blockbuster.

Dreams are one of the most mysterious aspects of human existence, and we still don't fully understand the strange phenomenon known as dreaming. For thousands of years, human beings have taken action in the waking world based on information they encounter in a dream -- and, every so often, people have felt their dreams aren't just reminding them of the past or recontextualizing the present. Instead, in virtually every culture and in every era of recorded history, people have claimed their dreams also, sometimes, tell them about the future. Join Ben, Matt and Noel as they delve into the science of dreams, and the conspiracies our own brains may hatch against us.

facebook, Twitter and the others are covered from being sued because they "say" they are a platform on which anyone can write anything. when they start censoring what they "allow" or deem "ok", then they are no longer playing the role of a platform but they have become an editor.

Within the first 5 minutes they really showed a lack of research or showed they are pushing an approved narrative. Read The Invisible Rainbow: A Histroy of Electricity and Life by Arthur Firstenberg to have a better understanding of what electromagnetic radiation can do to living cells. And homeschool your kids. Government school destroys minds.

There has not been much in the news cycle here in MKE regarding this. But, there never was. That side of town and news items such as this are largely ignored by the media here. I learned more about it from this podcast than I had from the local news. Of course, they ignored Jeffery Dhamer for a decade or so too. We have beer!

Please, you guys. I'm begging you. The band Muse has a huge catalog of conspiracy related/based songs. I just think this would be an amazing episode and trust me, there is a ton of content for you guys to work with. Plus, the fact that it would be incredibly interesting and definitely something that's right up you guys' alley.

you guys have to start limiting like the speed that you guys speak at and also the run-on sentences that your stories seems to be getting more and more of. extremely annoying and it actually is visibly aggravating to me and probably some other people. I just hate when people speed talk like that and a story goes on forever and ever and ever like when your story about a female artist's song which is interesting but really has no relevance and is kind of unnecessary for a story for you to tell all that is incredibly wordy and long, and can usually be wrapped up and made into a really short story to just get on with it alreadyalso you guys should do an episode or a couple episodes on Muse the band.
