2.XX – MU Plus+ Podcast – Halloween Special

MU+ Extended

Even though it's Halloween every week here at Mysterious Universe we still love to delve into the origins of the "festival of the dead" and its variations across the world.

For this year's special we look at the beginnings of the pagan festival, the parallels across Africa and Asia, and the deeper meaning behind the holiday.

Show notes and video after the jump.
