S03E18 - Bruce Fenton // The Forgotten Exodus
In today's episode of Lost Origins, Andrew and CK link up with season two veteran, Bruce Fenton. Fenton returns to the show to continue the conversation started last season by explaining his work regarding the migration patterns of ancient peoples. As outlined in his book, The Forgotten Exodus, the origins of our ancestors leave much to be discovered. While archaic hominids have walked the Earth from around 5 million years ago, we now know that close to 750,000 years ago something extraordinary began to happen to the genome of these distant ancestors, changes which marked the beginning of a unique species, Homo sapiens - us. Modern humans are quite unlike their primate relatives, but what was it about our slow trek through a prehistoric world that left us the black sheep of the global ecosystem? What epic trials did our ancestors pass through? How did we become so reliant on our technologies? Where on Earth did the critical scenes in our story play out?Bruce Fenton is a British multidisciplinary scientific researcher and media personality. He curates the popular paleoanthropology website AncientNews.net. Fenton graduated from Anglia Ruskin University with a Higher National Diploma in Information Systems. His expeditions to megalithic ruins in the Amazon jungle and in the Georgian Caucasus have seen him feature in the UK Telegraph newspaper and on the Science Channel.

S03E17 - Derrel Sims // The Alien Hunter
Have you ever seen a UFO or had an extraterrestrial experience? Millions of alien abductions have been reported and the worldwide phenomenon continues to baffle skeptics and open minds alike. In today's episode of Lost Origins, Andrew and CK connect with Derrel Sims to discuss his life's work around the investigation of extraterrestrial abductions, implants, and everything in between. More than forty years ago, Derrel Sims had his first encounter with an alien presence. At the age of 17, he experienced a malignant contact with these alien beings that would alter his life forever. As a result of the violent encounter, Derrel made the decision that he would no longer willingly be a victim to the bizarre quests of alien entities. He was determined to change his role in life from being “the hunted” to “the hunter.” When these same beings later came for his 5-year-old son, Derrel put his hunt into high gear.Derrel began preparing himself for his lifelong quest of pursuing the alien prey. Every path he took would equip him mentally, physically and spiritually to become a warrior for the cause and to assume the role he feels he was born to play. As a result, Derrel has spent the past three decades researching the world of alien beings. His focus has been two-fold: To acquire the skills necessary to design and implement a program of compassionate and effective counseling for victims of alien contact, and to collect and analyze medical and scientific evidence of the alien presence. He has spent years studying and training in a broad range of areas that would provide him with a full array of skills necessary to search for and acquire evidence of these creatures.He served in military intelligence and worked with the CIA, and after the service worked as a police officer, and as a licensed private investigator. As a teenager, he was gifted at martial arts and became an instructor—though he himself had no formal training. As an adult, he kept several exotic animals, including a tiger and pet python. From advanced scuba diving training to skill with weaponry; from his certifications as a Master Hypnotherapist and Certified Medical Hypnoanaesthesiolgist to studies in graphoanlysis; Derrel’s eclectic accomplishments have had a single aim: to defeat the alien menace.

S03E14 - Dr. Steven Lin // Quantum Mental Floss
During their weekend at CPAK, Andrew and CK had many conversations that left them reeling for more. In today's episode of Lost Origins, you get a front-row seat to the conversation that took the pair of hosts by surprise; this episode is cited by both Andrew and CK as the headiest conversation from their time at the Conference on Precession and Ancient Knowledge. In addition to quantum biology and anthropology, the three discuss the pineal gland, consciousness, the nature of reality, transcendental meditation, and so much more. #followTheWhiteRabbitTeeth provide the foundations of human history with tree-ring like record of our ancestor’s lives.

S03E13 - David Mathisen // Star Myths of the Asias
This week's episode of Lost Origins sets a new record, as we welcome our first ever, three-time guest to the show. David Mathisen sat down with Andrew and CK at CPAK to continue the conversation that began in season one. In this exchange, the trio discusses several new aspects of David's work including Buddhism, the Bhagavad Gita, and the Mahabharata. As always, David's thoughtful approach to the myths of the ancient world is fascinating and filled with moments of personal motivation. For more than ten years, David Mathisen has been researching and deciphering the system of celestial metaphor that forms the foundation for the world’s ancient myths, scriptures, and sacred stories. Abundant and compelling evidence shows that these ancient sacred traditions are in fact all related and closely connected, despite being found in virtually every longitude all the way around the globe, and stretching back to the very earliest texts and artwork is known to us at this time.The existence of this world-wide system argues for the existence of a sophisticated predecessor culture unknown to conventional history, standing alongside all of the archaeological evidence that has come to light over the centuries and continues to surface to this day. David is the author of The Ancient World-Wide System: Star Myths of the World Volume One (Second Edition), released in 2019, as well as of the earlier books Star Myths of the World Volume Two: Myths of Ancient Greece, Star Myths of the World Volume Three: Star Myths of the Bible, Star Myths of the World Volume Four: Norse Mythology, Astrotheology for Life, The Mathisen Corollary, The Undying Stars, and Ancient Myths, Ancient Wisdom.

S03E12 - Robert Edward Grant // Polymath & Sound Frequencies
This week's episode of Lost Origins presents a rare opportunity to connect with one of our generation's most advanced minds - that of Robert Edward Grant. While attending CPAK in Southern California, Andrew and CK sat down with Robert to discuss his mind-melting research and work. The three discussed the concept of playing DNA similar to how a stringed instrument would be played, polymath, sound frequencies, one being the only constant, and so much more. Robert Edward Grant is a genius inventor with an eye for patterns hidden within the fabrics of reality. Similar to how the Great Year appears as nuanced astronomical motions until examined from an alternative perspective in context, Robert has discovered prime number polyhedrons laced within all sound frequencies, but within music more notably. The characteristics of sonic geometry can be dated back to most, if not all ancient cultures who appear to have utilized specialized patterns for sound rhythms to create what we now know as music. Mathematics is a primordial language utilized by ancient cultures (aside from pictograms) that was derived out of a necessity to communicate and count. Yet, so much surrounding mathematics is not yet fully understood. Prime numbers especially have been tabled for a later debate—default outliers due to their seeming lack of interconnectivity—until now.Robert’s research has correlated absolute prime number values appearing in specific, identical patterns of data sets—even within those sets that are randomly generated number sequences. Further, this pattern can be translated into a kind of “musical geometry” that reveals secret shapes known as “polyhedrons” within the sound itself.By taking the corresponding individual musical notes inside the chromatic scale of octaves, Robert was able to convert them using the Pythagorean theorem to generate “degree reference points” within a specific range on the hertz frequency scale of sound. His research has appeared on Gaia and Ancient Origins and can be found on his own website as well.

S03E10 - Joseph Selbie // The Yuga Cycle
Earlier this year, Andrew and CK ventured to sunny California for the Conference of Procession and Ancient Knowledge. The two spent three days locked in a room with many of the brightest minds within the scientific community and mind-bending conversation after mind-bending conversation left them reeling for more. This week's episode of Lost Origins has been a long time coming. This is the first official installment of the CPAK episodes and we kick it off with a bang by interviewing Joseph Selbie. Did ancient man have a higher sense of consciousness and a more thorough understanding of reality than our current model? If you have jumped down the rabbit hole that is the Yuga Cycle, you may have your own opinions around this. Yuga in Hinduism is an epoch or era within a four-age cycle. A complete Yuga starts with the Satya Yuga, via Treta Yuga and Dvapara Yuga into a Kali Yuga. Some scholars say that our present time is ascending Kali Yuga, while some scholars say that Kali Yuga has ended in 1700 A.D. and now we're in ascending Dwapara Yuga.Joseph Selbie is the author of The Physics of God. An avid follower of the unfolding new paradigms of science, he is known for creating bridges of understanding between the modern evidenced-based discoveries of science and the ancient experience-based discoveries of the mystics. Joseph is also the co-author of The Yugas, a factual look at Yukteswar’s description of the cycle of the ages.A dedicated Kriya meditator for nearly 50 years, he has taught yoga and meditation throughout the US and Europe, helping people to understand and find their own spiritual potential—and helping them understand how the expression of their spiritual potential ushers into the world an unstoppable wave of peaceful consciousness. He is a founding member of Ananda, a world-wide spiritual movement. Joseph has been with Ananda since 1975 and has served in a wide variety of roles including IT Director, Ananda Village Community Manager, Lightbearer, and spearhead for Ananda’s work in Europe and Seattle. Joseph is the author of other books exploring how spirituality connects with culture and science, including a sci/fi fantasy series, The Protectors Diaries, inspired by the abilities of mystics. He is currently working on a new book, The Psychology of God, an exploration of the intersections of psychology and neuroscience with higher consciousness.

S02E20 - Lost Origins // In Every End There is Also Beginning
Season two of Lost Origins was an incredible journey and one that will forever hold a very special place in our hearts. Placing the show in a status of hiatus after season one was a very difficult decision and the itch to reboot the show has been everpresent since production ceased in 2016. Life has an interesting way of presenting challenges and opportunities that both require a monumental amount of attention, effort, and time. There were several moments where a reboot looked possible and in the end, each of these moments was rendered obsolete. We wanted to make sure that when we committed to rebooting the show, it was one that was not only sustainable but one that allowed us to make some incredible changes to the brand. We knew that the audio quality needed to be addressed and we checked that box. We also know that in today's digital ecosystem, a brand that is not a media company is not likely to survive - it's a jungle out there kids. We rolled out the media section of the website. We announced the anthology that is in development. We started implementing the use of videography and that is a space that we will continue to flex our creative muscles. We are always looking for ways to create additional content and media that provides value to our audience and listeners. In this week's episode, Andrew and CK revisit their favorite moments from season two and discuss the conversations that left their heads spinning. There were droves of amazing nuggets throughout the run of season two and the co-hosts expand on what they learned.

S02E19 - Erich Von Daniken // The Gods Never Left Us
How the hell do you set the stage for a conversation with a living legend like the one and only, Erich Von Daniken? While this highlight reel doesn't even begin to scratch the surface, a small handful of Erich's accolades include writing the 1968 best selling and global phenomenon Chariots of the Gods. Did Erich stop there? Nope; not even close. Since the release of Chariots of the Gods, Erich has written over 40 books - no big deal. His works have been translated into 32 languages and have sold over 63 million copies worldwide. Also, no big deal. As if a mountain of best selling titles wasn't enough, Erich has starred in countless documentaries and television shows including Ancient Aliens, several Gaia programs, the 1970 film Chariots of the Gods, and many more.This week, Erich Von Daniken joins Andrew and CK to discuss his body of work, his career, his most recent release The Gods Never Left Us. As the true sequel to Chariots of the Gods, this best selling book explores the idea that ancient aliens have not only been involved with humanity for thousands of years but that extraterrestrials have been present within the progress and development of the human species from day one. At 84 years old, the charismatic and passionate Von Daniken presents his research in an accessible way that will melt your brain and force you to question everything.

S02E18 - Cliff Dunning // Exploring the Ancients
Growing up, I always enjoyed a solid mashup. It was a magical moment when the work of two bands I enjoyed would come together, creating an altogether new experience based on separate brands, styles, and sometimes genres. This week, Lost Origins tips the proverbial hat and pays homage to the mashup culture in a big way. Sharing the motivation to ask questions and uncover the origins of humanity, Earth Ancients is an insanely successful podcast hosted by Cliff Dunning. A former Program Director for The Learning Annex, Whole Life Expo, and numerous national conferences, Cliff developed a keen awareness for provocative subjects on our planet’s known and unknown civilizations, and the thousands of anomalous archeological discoveries which are not covered by conventional science and the media. Possessing a deep understanding of ancient wisdom traditions, the Human Potential Movement, topics on personal growth, and spirituality, Cliff introduces programs which are ahead of their time, controversial and thought-provoking. Not only has Cliff built an amazing show with a massive following, but he has also been fortunate to have conversations with some of the top alternative thinking minds of modern times. This roster is vast and includes hitters such as Graham Hancock, Randal Carlson, Michael Tellinger, Andrew Collins, Freddy Silva, Dr. Robert Schoch, Erich Von Daniken, and many more. This week, Cliff jumps on with Andrew and CK for a mashup between Lost Origins and Earth Ancients. In true round table fashion, the three each bring their favorite theory among ancient mysteries and discuss what they have been able to discern based on their research and conversations had on the podcasts. This is a unique episode and one that you do not want to miss.

S02E17 - Jennifer Gehl // The Return of Planet Sedna
Lurking in the dark corners of our solar system, planet Sedna holds interesting implications regarding the mental wellbeing of humanity. This week, Andrew and CK connect with Jennifer T. Gehl, MHS. As a certified Acutonics practitioner, astrology sound healer, and mentor with a master’s degree in health sciences from St. Francis University, Jennifer instructs astro-harmonic medicine continuing education to licensed professionals. In this week's episode of Lost Origins, she explains her latest book, The Return of Planet Sedna and walks Andrew and CK through how the Inuit legend of the sea woman Sedna offers clues about the message of the same-named planet’s return, including a warning about the sustainability of our planet. She also details how we can tune ourselves to Sedna’s energies and harness them for healing ourselves and our planet. Gehl also explains how Kundalini energy courses through planets and people alike and how planetary transits activate a form of cosmic Kundalini energy, with Sedna’s planetary return marking a major stage in this awakening process. Examining the story of Sedna mythologically and astrologically, Gehl explains how Sedna’s last appearance 11,000 years ago occurred at the end of the Ice Age when waters disrupted and divided our world. Her return, rather than being a harbinger of disaster, is one of the way-shower and shaman. Symbolically, she lights the path for us to ignite our own immortality by surrendering to the inner path, revealing patterns and pathways for infinite healing potential, a new model of sustainability for the health of our planet, and a way to actively participate in our soul’s evolution.

S02E16 - Andrew Collins // Denisovan Origins and the Hybrid Humans of Gobekli Tepe
Gobekli Tepe is hands-down one of the most enigmatic and intriguing sites on the face of the Earth. Steeped in mystery, this site continues to challenge the status-quo of the epoch in which civilization began. This site has been the focus of several episodes of Lost Origins and this week, we make a return to Gobekli Tepe in a major way. Andrew and CK are joined by Andrew Collins to discuss his upcoming book, Denisovan Origins. Scheduled for release on September 3rd, Denisovan Origins traces the migrations of the sophisticated Denisovans and their interbreeding with Neanderthals and early human populations more than 40,000 years ago. This release also explains how Denisovan hybrids became the elite of ancient societies, including the Adena mound-building culture. Collins explains his latest effort to Andrew and CK while taking them on a journey through the ancient world. This episode is one hell of a rabbit hole; you have been warned. Andrew Collins is a science and history writer, who has been investigating the origins of human civilization for over three decades. He is a noted explorer and the co-discoverer of a massive cave complex beneath the Giza plateau, now known as “Collins’ Caves.” He is the author of several bestselling books, including From the Ashes of Angels and Gobekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods.

S02E15 - Walter Cruttenden // Lost Star of Myth and Time
The precession of the equinoxes has long perplexed mankind. This phenomenon is a mind-boggling component of the Earth and the ancients continuously tipped the proverbial hat to precession throughout their monuments, megalithic structures, and writings. This subtle, yet highly advanced nod has perplexed researchers, as the common narrative points to ancient man having been less sophisticated than our current societal achievements. This week's episode explores why this school of thought is incorrect and how our ancestors were incredibly advanced. Currently serving as the Director of the Binary Research Institute in Newport Beach, California, Walter Cruttenden is the author of the best selling book, Lost Star of Myth and Time. He is also the writer and producer of the award-winning documentary film, “The Great Year”. This week he joins Andrew and CK to discuss his work surrounding precession and the cyclical nature of the ages. He explains how mankind transitions from low ages of darkness and ignorance into high ages of technological and conscious achievement. Additionally, Walter points to our sun participating in a binary star system as the basis for this shift in civilization; a concept that is one hell of a rabbit hole.
