“5 years ago I was never into podcasts. When I met my fiancé he talked often about MU and how it was spooky and great to listen to in the car. As Ben and Aaron say in the show I thought the entire thing was hot chaff. I was so skeptical and genuinely thought the entire show was going to be half explained “could you imagine if…..aliens?” for a full hour.
The episode I first listened to was about the book Waking Up to Love which was about a delusional but well intentioned lady falling in love with a man in a coma through her perceived mind connection with him during reiki sessions. The entire time the retelling of the story was so genuine I was convinced that the hosts were very much into the cheesiness of the book— until halfway through the episode and at the book’s finale it’s revealed once the man finally wakes up that he not only isn’t in love with but has no idea who this freak is that’s been visiting him daily because he was IN. A. COMA! At the peak of this it was such a hilarious relief to know that I wasn’t the only one puking in my mouth at this story and the added soundboard effects made everything so much funnier. My perception of the podcast as being too serious a format for the subject matter was completely out of the window and now I knew I was on the same page. The conclusion to the episode was readings of old chinese proverbs/allegorical stories that were also delivered in such a funny way by the end of the episode I was cracking up and 100% on board.
I’m not usually the person that writes reviews for anything and I don’t really expect this to be helpful to anybody but if on the off chance Ben and Aaron are able to read this I would just like them to know that their hard work in creating this show is very much seen and appreciated and they seem like two really stand up guys!
Much love from the place with the greatest amount of high strangeness: Florida!”
