A Hitchhiker's Guide to the New Mysterious Universe

A long time ago in the uncharted backwaters of Australia, where craggy mountains meet swirling seas – two mates were having a chinwag for the ages. A spittle-flying and hands-gesturing-wildly kind of chat. The kind with twists and turns and tangents that snake from the occult to the ufological and everything in between. 

Little did these mates know, that they were laying the groundwork for what would one day become… the Mysterious Universe podcast. 

Now in its tenth year with over twenty-five seasons of exploring lost civilisations and wrangling conspiracy theories, the team behind the podcast are excited to bring you something a little different. 

Namely, a brand new website that’s been months in the making. 

Leap through time at eighty-eight miles per hour with a new menu that bridges the gap between ancient and modern mysteries. 

Decipher the enigmatic with a dark colour palette that sheds light on interesting stories.

Scour our site for articles on the likes of psychics and psychedelics with optimised search.

Scroll and uncover stories of Incan spirituality, infamous cults and paranormal sightings seamlessly with improved speed. 

Join Ben & Aaron for hours of exclusive content each week. 

Unravel the world’s mysteries on our new website right here, right now.

It would have been nice to post all of the above without any bugs or issues to deal with but alas, as expected, we do have some bugs that have appeared since launching the new site. 

Here's a quick list of what's happening and what to expect:

- We currently have server issues that are causing errors and downtime. This is a brand new server environment and we are working on getting these issues resolved asap. This is our number one priority right now. Expect more crashes and downtime while we get it sorted.

- We are getting your support requests, but there's a lot of them and our small team is getting them solved as fast as we can. We do ask for your patience though as it may take us some time to solve your issue. 

- Common problems so far are:

  • We stopped using usernames and now you can't remember, or don't have access to the email you used to register with our old site. 
  • You can login, but the system says you don't have an account.
  • You can't login, the system says you don't exist. 
  • You don't know what to do with the RSS feed on your dashboard.
  • Why can't I send it to my phone number if I'm not in the US, AUS, or NZ?
  • The website is down, I can't login!
  • I set my iPad on fire and am not sure what to do next. 

For anyone having these issues and experiencing bugs, please don't worry, we can easily fix all these for you and have records of all your payments and old account information. It's just a matter of getting to your support request, which again, will take some time. 

We don't expect to have everything resolved in the next 24 hours but our target is to get everything stable by this Friday.

Thanks for your understanding and patience. ~ Ben
