Episode 307 – Mysterious Universe Plus+

Joined by Micah Hanks, we look at the Placebo Effect, the third arm illusion, and other strange medical anomalies.

We also feature tales of time slips, thunderbirds, and we eventually land in the depths of the Congo to explore the sightings of giant 5ft man-eating spiders.

Show notes, music, and videos after the jump.
