On this episode of Expanded Perspectives Kyle and Cam start off by talking about how Iceland is going to build the first temple to Norse gods in 1,000 years. Worship of the gods in Scandinavia gave way to Christianity around 1,000 years ago but a modern version of Norse paganism has been gaining popularity in Iceland. Then a hidden population of up to 200 lions found in remote Ethiopia. In the savannah of Alatash National Park, which is a remote part of north-west Ethiopia was considered a possible habitat for lions, but it is seldom visited by people. Now an expedition by the University of Oxford’s Conservation Research Unit has discovered that lions are indeed alive and well in the park – a rare extension of their known range. Then, you can now send a “message in a bottle” that will reach the north star in 434 years. A new project will beam people’s text-based messages into space at light speed later this year, with the communications predicted to reach Polaris – or the North Star. The messages will be transmitted as radio signals, and the researchers hope they’ll form something of a ‘time capsule’ that will reveal insights into how we feel about the environment at this crucial point in our history. Then, Woolly mammoth was never served at a lavish 1950s New York dinner where rare and extinct species were trumpeted as being on the menu, a researcher has said after putting leftover meat through DNA analysis. The Explorers Club soiree became folklore after it was said to have included 250,000-year-old extinct mammoth. Meat from a giant ground sloth was also promised. Then, sadly the great Dr. Edgar Mitchell passed away this last week. Mitchell was a member of Apollo 14 and the sixth man to ever walk on the Moon. After the break the guys talk to friends of the show David Flora and Dave Stecco of the Blurry Photos Podcast. Blurry Photos is a fantastic show that is the perfect combination of both comedy and the unknown, Blurry Photos is a podcast that aims to humorously shed light on the more shadowy topics the world has to offer. From cryptozoology and the paranormal to conspiracy theories and the unexplained, Blurry Photos will help educate and entertain you in a decently informational and whimsical way. Finally, Cam brings up another sasquatch sighting from Northern Ireland. Thanks for listening to Expanded Perspectives, have a fantastic week!
