Troy McLachlan joins me to discuss his outstanding research into what he calls the Saturn Death Cult. Drawing on research from Velikovsky through to the Electric Universe paradigm, as well as conspiracies, finance, and more, he weaves a fascinating historical and cosmological tapestry, adeptly painting the picture of what life on earth may have been like pre-120,000 years ago, and how the firmament likely appeared to our ancestors (hint: VERY differently!), and how and why it changed at key moments. This leads him into who and what the Saturn Death Cult is, and its ongoing influence and activity in the world today. McLachlan's work also offers alternative explanations of a number of core ideas in the Abrahamic religions, including the "eye of God", the "let there be light" moment, the “mark of Cain”, what the Biblical “void” really was, as well as making the compelling case that cultures around the world witnessed and recorded shocking events in the heavens and preserved them in myth and symbol. Don't miss this.

Why are so many of the famous biblical characters missing from the historical record? Forty years ago, the intrepid and dogged researcher Ralph Ellis decided to find out. Does this biblical lacuna mean that both the Old and New Testaments are fictional, as many people have claimed? Or are we simply looking in the wrong locations or perhaps even the wrong eras?
The first glimmer of the truth was not hard to see, for even the 1st century Romo-Jewish historian Josephus Flavius claimed that the Israelites were the Hyksos pharaohs of Egypt. In which case the Book of Exodus may well be correct, from a historical context, but both theologians and historians were looking in the wrong era. Upon further investigation it transpired that Josephus was correct: the biblical Hyksos-Israelite Exodus was a real historical event.
From this small kernel of truth, the entire biblical epic has now been transformed from mystic mythology into a central component of real secular history. All the way from Genesis to Revelations, this simple but rational reevaluation technique became the foundation for much of Ralph’s work. Join me through a fascinating re-visioning of key Biblical events and personages.

Netflix show Stranger Things has proved enormously resonant with viewers worldwide, but why so much so? Beloved characters like Eleven, Mike and Will (the “Wizard”) stand defiantly between an encroaching darkness dubbed the Mind Flayer and human civilisation as we know it. The malevolent dark being seeks global domination and destruction—total conquest and annihilation of humanity, but innocent little Eleven and her friends prove to be stubbornly pesky obstacles. What do Eleven and the Mind Flayer represent—is there an ancient Gnostic theme to be uncovered here in 1980s Hawkins’ secret war?
