Ep. 201: Joe O'Brien (Psychic), LaVena Johnson (Murder) & P.B.J. #10

Uncovering Unexplained Mysteries

***I'm excited to announce the new merch has arrived! Check it all out at here: https://teespring.com/stores/uum-storeWELL! Party's over! Back to normal with this week's set of cases. First we talk about Joe O'Brien's psychic experience he had when he imaged himself as his friend Sammy who was, at the time, being held as a prisoner of war. Once Sammy was released and reunited with Joe he realized that Joe was able to describe precisely what Sammy had gone through. Next we have one of the most clearest mislabeling of deaths in military history. LaVena Johnson supposedly committed suicide while stationed in Balad, Iraq. None of the facts, however, back up that statement. This case goes much deeper into America's addiction to contractors and mercenaries. These people are para-military for-hire who do not fall under the same jurisdiction as American military. LaVena was most likely a victim of one of these people. -------------------------------Uncovering Unexplained Mysteries on Social Media:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/uncoveringunexplainedmysteriesTwitter: https://twitter.com/UncoveringUmFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1918785078407664/-------------------------------For more Mike & Josh, check out their YouTube channels!Josh: www.youtube.com/dancingwithghostsMike: www.youtube.com/OCPCommunications

Only Human Podcast

Joe O'Brien is a trainee Health Psychologist who works with Spectrum Mental Health and is the founder of the @HeadFirst0 instagram account and podcast which has been influential in making health psychology accessible and understandable for anyone. Joe and I go all the way back to primary school. We discuss how our self image and identities have evolved over time before turning to how to bring the very practical insights of health psychology into play in our day to day lives so we can stay well during challenging periods such as Coronavirus. We look at sleep, habit formation, the fundamentals of mental wellbeing, environmental factors in health, managing relationships in stressful times, setting healthy boundaries, differentiating between psychotherapy, psychology and psychiatry,  as well as getting his insights into what Coronavirus and quarantine life has taught him. This was such an enjoyable conversation and is packed with valuable, actionable information. Please share what resonated with you @JackKavanaghIRL or by email at hello@jack-kavanagh.com. I love to get feedback as it helps us improve and add more value for you, the listener, so let me know your thoughts and what topics you would like covered.

We discuss the uncertainty we all face, using daily routine to take back a sense of control over our day, maintaining a balance between staying informed and avoiding information overload, and the importance of using technology to maintain social connection while we are being asked to stay far apart. I hope you guys enjoy this episode - if you give it a listen, tag us in your stories, let myself and Joe know what you thought, and thank you for tuning in!
