Description

Hysteria 51 is a weekly podcast that takes an every-man approach to the World of the Weird - UFOs, Aliens, Mysteries, the Paranormal, the Unusual, and the Unexplained. Hosts John Goforth, Brent Hand, and Conspiracy Bot (a cranky robot bent on world domination who also happens to be the show’s head researcher) examine a different topic each week and generally come to one conclusion…the truth is out there, but you won’t find it here.

Episode Date
Switcheroo: The Mad Scientist and Time Travel Part 1: The Illusion
2599
Switcheroo this week as The Mad Scientist Podcast takes over! This episode they talk about the philosophy and math behind the concept of time. What IS time? How do we measure it? How did that idea develop? And how will that lay the groundwork for time travel?

CAFEteria 51: World Tour - Canadian Ketchup Chip
1299
Really leaving our comfort zone here…to travel a couple hundred miles north to CANADA! That's right, this week we visit our cousins to the north to experience one of their finer delicacies. An item lauded by many, loathed by some, and polarizing for all. This week we try the KETCHUP POTATO CHIP (you so thought we were going to say poutine didn't you?) What brand has the best? Why are they so expensive on Amazon? What in the world are 'All Dressed' Chips? ALL of that and more this week as we explore the Ketchup Chip on CAFEteria 51.  Support the show: https://www.patreon.com/Hysteria51 See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The Minnesota Iceman: Missing Link or a Charlatan's Sham? | 237
3730
What do you do when you find a previously undiscovered hominid frozen in a block of ice? Well, obviously you thaw him out and go eat microwave burritos at 7-11. But, in the off chance Pauly Shore is unavailable for said hijinks - you might just tour around the country charging people to get a look-see. And that's exactly what happened when Frank Hansen got his hands on this particular Neanderthal-sickle. But the story gets weirder. The Smithsonian comes to take a look, it's determined the wannabe Bigfoot was shot in the head, and someone at Disney claims they actually made the thing out of latex and a lack of common sense. We try to melt the mystery of the Minnesota Iceman this week. Plus, we welcome Dan Kozuh back to the show (he's got a new podcast - The Extramundane with Max Ward), C-Bot isn't exactly firing on all cylinders (is he ever?), and Brent plants a fake voicemail lauding his hosting talents (might be fake, might not but since I write the descriptions- we're going with it). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never thawed a Neanderthal from a gigantic block of ice, but if we did we’re pretty sure he’d look like Brendan Fraser - Hysteria 51.

Flashback Winner Pick: The Kardashev Scale | 236
3840
Alright yuh sacks, Conspiracy Bot here. You voted last week and the winner was crowned. Me. But also John Titor for some reason. And the winner was picked for the prize pack, one loser named Skylar Horton. His crap is in the mail but to make him feel like less of a douche pickle for listening to this dumpster fire of a podcast I reached out and let him pick his favorite episode of all time for this week's final flashback episode. Without further ado, here is Skylar's pick, The Kardashev Scale How advanced is our civilization? Hot Pockets? Check. Cat memes? Check. Total control of our planet’s resources, weather, and energy? Well…we’ll get back to you. That’s the basic premise of the Kardashev Scale. It’s a simple test to judge a civilization’s technological advancement. The scale ranges from 0 (we’re a 0.7) to a 6 or 7 (think omnipotent beings). This week we explore where we are, where we’re (hopefully) going, and how we can get there. Plus, Conspiracy Bot gives himself an upgrade to SUPER C (he’s been playing too much NES), the neighborhood cats are back in his cross-hairs (he drank a bottle of Malört), and we talk how Pluto has gotten the shaft (#teamPluto). All of that and more on the podcast that didn’t know you in high school, but if we had we would have beat up any other podcasts that made fun of your Magic the Gathering collection – Hysteria 51.

FLASHBACK: The Solway Firth Spaceman | 235
3238
CBot here. It's Flashback week on Hysteria 51.  Monday through Friday this week the meatsacks are releasing one of their favorite past episodes of the show.  On Friday there will be a post where you can vote for your favorite episode of the week.  1 person who voted will be picked at random for a prize pack so make sure to hop on Hysteria Nation if you like crap from dumb podcasts.  I hope you lose! Nothing worse than a photobomb. There you are minding your own business, taking a picture of your lovely daughter and next thing you know some idiot time traveler / astronaut / inter-dimensional being drops his/her/its mug into your frame. And while we’ve all been through it, there’s a famous version we’re talking about this week - The Solway Firth Spaceman. Where did the other figure come from? Could this be a real, true documentation of a close encounter? How much is free film for a year actually worth? We dive in deep and see what develops. Plus, Conspiracy Bot actually did research this week (albeit unsuccessfully, but...ya know...baby steps). Brent channels his inner British housewife from the 1960s (it wasn’t a huge leap). And John starts talking about time travel again (we wish it existed so we could go back and stop him). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t do a ton of photo shoots, but when we do they’re in the UK and they involve a spaceman – Hysteria 51.

Weird things happen in Kentucky…chili buns…distilleries in dry counties…Johnny Depp. But perhaps the strangest was the day it rained meat on a rural farmstead. The event, now known as the Kentucky Meat Shower, is not only 100% real, it’s also yet to be fully explained. What would cause the heavens to open and drop a meaty monsoon on an unsuspecting farmer’s wife? We grab our umbrellas (and grills) and dive in to the Kentucky Meat Shower this week. Plus, Joe Peck returns to the show (it was unexpected), Kyle gets buggy again (less unexpected), and Conspiracy Bot has a new song (we wish we hadn’t expected it). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never been in a shower of meat, but one can dream – Hysteria 51.

FLASHBACK: Somerton Man | 233

CBot here. It's Flashback week on Hysteria 51.  Monday through Friday this week the meatsacks are releasing one of their favorite past episodes of the show.  On Friday there will be a post where you can vote for your favorite episode of the week.  1 person who voted will be picked at random for a prize pack so make sure to hop on Hysteria Nation if you like crap from dumb podcasts.  I hope you lose! A recently deceased man’s body is discovered on an Australian beach. No signs of foul play and at first glance it appears to be just another unremarkable death. But then… The man can’t be identified…with any database…anywhere on the planet. All tags have been removed from his clothing, taking away the ability to even trace their country of origin. A small scrap of paper is found in his possession with two words in Persian, torn from a rare first edition book by a 12th century poet. Oh, and that natural death? Might not have been so natural. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg in what is considered Australia’s most perplexing cold case. The Somerton Man case has it all; love triangles, spy games, and even ciphers! Every good mystery needs a cipher. The H51 I-Team investigates. Plus, we discuss the various ways to die or get eaten in Australia, the return of C-Bot’s homicidal tendencies, and the return of the WHEEL OF CONSPIRACIES! All of that and more on the podcast that isn’t from the Land Down Under, but we sure like to party like we are – Hysteria 51.

FLASHBACK: John Titor- Time Traveler or Internet Troll | 232
5180
CBot here. It's Flashback week on Hysteria 51.  Monday through Friday this week the meatsacks are releasing one of their favorite past episodes of the show.  On Friday there will be a post where you can vote for your favorite episode of the week.  1 person who voted will be picked at random for a prize pack so make sure to hop on Hysteria Nation if you like crap from dumb podcasts.  I hope you lose! If time travel is possible and future humans are coming back to our era...what would they want? To kill a future despot? To make a change to the environment that saves future generations? To take back a computer from 1975 to make their time machine work properly? If you're anything like the subject of this week's show, John Titor, you went with door #3. According to his posts on the internet, John Titor traveled back to the 70s to get a special computer to save time travel. He also made a pit stop along the way in the early 00's to live with his family (and 2 year old self) and presumably post snotty messages on inane internet forums (not stand-up forums like Hysteria Nation). Sound crazy? That's the most normal part of this story. This week we do our best Sam Beckett and try to fix what went wrong with the OG Chrononaut - John Titor. Plus, John and Brent ponder the existential perils of time travel (not really - just looking for ways to make money on it). Conspiracy bot ponders the existential perils of time travel (not really - just looking for other ways to kill John and Brent). And David Flora of Blurry Photos is back in the lower 4th (he just wants to time travel to a time before he met Conspiracy Bot). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t have time travel capabilities, but if we did, we’d do things to improve humanity…and make an insane amount of money – Hysteria 51.

Dulce, New Mexico: population 2,743…ABOVE GROUND! That’s right, according to some there is a secret base under Dulce that houses everything from classified US technology to reptilians. According to those same folks Dulce is one of the many underground facilities that Reptilians use to run experiments on humans. Oh, and there was a huge underground battle there between aliens and the US military. The aliens managed to win because they had advanced ray guns. And from there….the story REALLY starts to get strange. This week we grab our tinfoil hats and go down the reptilian hole as we explore the Dulce Underground Base. Plus, Conspiracy Bot stays sober long enough to do some writing (surprisingly true), we learn there is a Starbucks on Venus that employed Conspiracy Bot (not true at all), and Kevin Crispin is back in the lower 4th (fun and true)! All of that and more on the podcast that’s never fought reptilians underground, our battles have always taken place on Outworld (Reptile wins!) – Hysteria 51.

Well, we've decided it's time to expand our horizons and start the Cafeteria 51 World Tour! That's right, for the foreseeable future each Cafeteria 51 episode will reflect some sort of food form a various country or region around the world. We're not saying the foods we pick are necessarily representative of anything other than the food is in some way, shape, or form associated with said country. As is the case this week with INDONESIA. Did we dig up a delectable version of Beef Rendang? Nope. Find a hidden gem that serves an amazing Siomay? Nuh uh. We went high class this week with…Indonesian RAMEN!

Fenn's Treasure: A Modern Day Treasure Hunt! | 230
2991
A former Air Force pilot turned (possibly shady) art dealer thinks he's on his way to the grave in the late 80s and comes up with an idea. He's going to use his amassed wealth to put together a modern day treasure chest and go die next to it in the Rocky Mountains. The flaw in his plan? He didn't die. That man was Forest Fenn and he eventually decided in 2010 to hide the treasure anyway (without his body) and tell the world to go find it; winner take all. And with that the hunt was on. Over the course of the next decade hundreds of thousands of people searched high and low for this infamous box. Some even lost their lives in the pursuit. But was this treasure really out there? If so, were the clues really under everyone's noses in a poem Fenn had written? And perhaps most importantly, could John and Brent be any worse at poetry recital? We answer those questions and more this week as we go in search of Fenn's Treasure. Plus, Conspiracy Bot plugs yet another "Uncle Conspiracy Bot’s Fun Time Toy" (sigh), Kyle gets a change of scenery (and circuitry), and the studio gets a redecoration (not in a good way). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never found a buried treasure, but we did once stumble upon two tickets to paradise - Hysteria 51.

A conspiracy that leaves theorists a little Red in the face. Check your struts and chutes, Flora is blasting off straight into the heart of the lost cosmonaut conspiracy theory! A conspiracy involving soviet coverup of terrible atrocities, the lost cosmonaut theory deals with purported evidence of death after death in the race for space supremacy. Cries into the abyss, a faltering heartbeat, and airbrushed photos are just a few aspects of this theory. David delves deeply into the lore, examining audio files, photographs, and claims made by theorists. Just how bad was the loss of life? Was Yuri Gagarin really the first person in space?

The Black Forest UFO Incident of 1936: More Aliens and Nazis! | 229
3488
In 1936 a UFO allegedly crashed in the Black Forest near Frieberg, Germany where Hitler's SS quickly recovered it for research. Could it be that THAT craft and the technology garnered from it ALMOST turned the tide of the war and gave Hitler access to uncanny COSMIC POWER?!?!!? Eh, probably not - but it's still worth an episode. This week we wrap ourselves in Old Glory and go alien/Nazi hunting as we revisit The Black Forest UFO Incident of 1936. Plus, John points out there are Black Forest gummy bears (strange), C-Bot points out there are Black Forest ghosts (that tracks), and the fellas discuss the #snydercut (NERDS).

CAFEteria 51: Cephalopods
1984
This week we're diving into the briny deeps to fish out some delicacies…specifically octopus and squid! And while it may be true that we'll eventually learn octopi are super-intelligent beings from another world, in the meantime they're just delicious. So, grab your favorite invertebrate, fire up the grill, wok, or fryer and chow down on cephalopods this week on CAFEteria 51.  Support the show: https://www.patreon.com/Hysteria51 See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Sleep Paralysis: Listener Supported | 228
4097
Well, we finally did it. We finally sold out. Specifically, we finally had a Patreon member silly enough to pay for the level that lets them join the show and pick the topic. That listener? Cebastian Tekin. The topic? Sleep paralysis. Hit play to see what’s inside (Cebastian, the Patreon included you joining...not a clever description). Plus, C-Bot unveils his next Uncle Conspiracy Bot’s Fun Time Toy (oh boy). Somehow he involves Darius Rucker (whoa boy). And we all agree Wagon Wheel is a good song.

The Wyrick Family Haunting | 226
3374
Tons of kids have an imaginary friend. It's the same old song and dance. "Mom! Dad! My imaginary friend wants to push me on the swing! My imaginary friend is an old man in a black suit. My imaginary friend lost his hand to a cotton gin accident." You know...routine stuff. Anyway that's the beginning of this weeks haunting...and that's definitely only the beginning. From visits with dead neighbors, to scratches from demons, to hell-mouths opening in the living room - this story has it all. We grab our gear and go in search of the Wyrick family haunting this week. Plus, Conspiracy Bot has some new subroutines (he's still a jerk), Kyle continues his baffling competence (it's only a matter of time), and John goes on a rant about Eli Whitney (because nothing's funnier than 18th century farm humor). All of that and more on the podcast that never had an imaginary friend, just imaginary acquaintances - Hysteria 51.

Resurrect Dead: Toynbee Tiles & Jupiter & 2001, Oh My! | 225
4350
Toynbee Ideas in Kubrick's 2001 Resurrect Dead on Planet Jupiter. No, that's not some strange Fortean Mad Libs, it's a message that, in various iterations, has been found across the world for over 30 years. Etched into streets, these "Toynbee Tiles" remain a mystery to investigators to this day. Who put them there? Are they all the product of the same person or group? What's their intention? Does the hateful ideology found on a few of them apply to all of them? As usual we ask tough questions this week (and as usual we have a hard time answering them ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ). Plus, Conspiracy Bot has a new product line (frightening). The new product line is geared to children (more frightening). And he's now calling people "daddy-o" (probably the most frightening).

The Missing Apollo Missions: Star Destroyers and Alien Bodies | 224

You probably think the Apollo missions to the moon ended with Apollo 17. Wake up sheeple! Rumor has it we went back for at least 3 more Apollo missions. Why? Discovery of an alien spacecraft on the dark side of the moon, that's why! And yes, it was bigger than a Walmart. This week we dive into the controversial Apollo missions that *didn't happen and what they might have found (hint: abandoned cities and naked aliens...like Detroit in the 80s). Plus Kyle causes some turmoil at the Hand household, C-Bot encourages it, and the fellas discuss the most recent UFO sighting by an American Airlines pilot (hint: it wasn't a United engine).

The Mysterious Disappearance of Walter Collins | 223
3453
It's hard to imagine the emotions that must be associated with the disappearance of a child. The intersection of loss, hope, and utter anxiety must be crushing. Now imagine you’re in that situation and one day, SOMEHOW, you get good news that the child has been found, safe. Continuing this thought experiment, what would relief be replaced with when they bring you the kid...and it isn’t yours. The kid resembles your child, the police swear it’s your child, but you’re a parent...you know. This is the exact thing that happened to Christine Collins in California in 1928. But WAS it actually her son, Walter? If not, who was this imposter? Was Christine simply losing her mind? And how are the Wineville murders and Canada involved? We put on our fedoras and investigate the mysterious disappearance of Walter Collins this week. Plus, Kyle gets an overhaul (for the better), he requests baked goods containing coagulated milk proteins (same song, different tune), and the fellas discuss the best Angelina Jolie flicks (Hackers obviously). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never had a family member abducted, but if we did, we sure hope Angelina Jolie would star in the movie - Hysteria 51.

Sun Studio: The Birthplace of Rock 'N' Roll | 222

We take a detour from our regular H51 shenanigans this week so we can bask in the awesome that is Sun Studio in Memphis Tennessee.  Why you ask??Because Reasons!!  Reasons like Sun Studio is known worldwide as “The Birthplace of Rock’n’roll”. It is the discovery location of musical legends and genres of the 50’s from B.B. King and Elvis Presley to Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis; from Blues and Gospel to Country and Rock’n'roll.  And, Brent was joined by none other than Sam Kulper of Breakers Podcast to record this special episode in the very spot Elvis, Johnny, Jerry, B.B., and so many others started their iconic careers.

Stonehenge: Britain's Prehistoric Legos | 221

Not much description needed here. This week we talk Stonehenge, the prehistoric British monument built by aliens for Druidic sacrifices. Ok, well, the prehistoric and British parts are at least true. But WHO actually built it and WHEN? HOW did they do it? WHY do we still let Conspiracy Bot on the show? We travel to merry ol' England and ask the tough questions this week. Plus, do round things count as wheels? How much grease is too much? And the pros and cons of building boats out of tree trunks. All of that and more of the podcast that has never been to Stonehenge but we've certainly been...well, never mind. This is Hysteria 51.

Butterbox Babies | 220
3867
We wish we could tell you this week's topic is some weird cryptid or a yet to be discussed alien species. Unfortunately, it's something much worse (and Canadian!) "Butterbox Babies" is a reference to the size of the boxes a deranged Canadian couple used to bury 100s of babies across 3 decades in the early 20th century. How did this couple get away with it? Did the entire town turn a blind eye? If an American couple buys a baby in Canada, what's the exchange rate? We ask the tough questions this week as we examine The Butterbox Babies. Plus, Kyle still thinks he lives in Star Trek (TNG to be precise). Conspiracy Bot is apparently a fan of the show Earth 2 (and Antonio Sabàto Jr.), and the fellas discuss Canadian foods (ketchup chips anyone?).

There are rules in this world. Rules not meant to be broken. Don't feed a Mogwai after midnight. Don't invade Russia in the winter. And for the love of all that's holy, don't curse your 13th child to the devil while living in New Jersey. If you do, you wind up with this week's cryptid - The Jersey Devil. This part dragon, part goat/horse monstrosity as been terrifying New Jersey and its neighbors for the better part of 3 centuries. But where did it come from? Is it real? Are Sandhill Cranes the true devil here? That's all this week as we grab our rope and a rosary to catch The Jersey Devil. Plus, Conspiracy Bot travels to Equatorial Guinea (we don't know either), a prospector finds his way to 17th Century New Jersey (Brent needs help), and the fellas talk about the most important topic of all: Taylor Ham vs pork roll.

The Most Evil Car in America | 218

What's the most evil car in America? Is it a 90's white Bronco? Perhaps one of those semis that spilled 1000s of gallons of booze all of the highway? The PT Cruiser? All good guesses but no, the most evil car in America is...a 1964 Dodge 330 L.E. nicknamed The Golden Eagle. While that might sound anticlimactic, this bad boy is said to have a killed a minimum of 14 people and perhaps a lot more. This week life is a highway and we wanna ride it all night long as we explore the Most Evil Car in America. Plus, the fellas debate the best evil cars in cinematic history, Kyle thinks he's the computer on the Enterprise (1701-D obviously), and John lectures us all on the right way to dispose of evil machinery.

Clowns | 217
4132
We get funny like a clown this week as we take a look at...well...clowns. Where did these much maligned children’s characters come from? Why do we find them so frightening? Did anyone ever win the Grand Prize Game? Well, for the relevant and interesting stuff we have some help as author and journalist Linda Rodriguez McRobbie joins the fellas to break down why we all float down here. Plus, Conspiracy Bot starts work on a clown robot (scary), Brent discloses his unhealthy obsession with grease paint (scarier), and only a couple ICP references are made all episode (are the guys feeling ok?).

1941 Cape Girardeau UFO Crash: The Alien Coverup Before Roswell | 216
3241
No one expects their grandma to hit them with some crazy family secrets while on her deathbed. But when those secrets involve a UFO crash, dead alien bodies, and a U.S. government coverup - well, granny sure knows how to go out with style. That's also the basis for this week's story as we go back in time to investigate the Cape Girardeau UFO Crash of 1941. Plus, the fellas talk Nick Pope shenanigans, drinking in cornfields, and enjoying small town wineries (separately of course - we're not implying the fellas were drinking at a winery in a cornfield with Nick Pope - though that sounds delightful). All of that and more on the podcast that can’t wait to make up some crazy stuff to tell our loved ones on our death bed - Hysteria 51.

2020: It's a Wrap! | 215

2020 Wrap: Monoliths, Galactic Federations, and Potted Meat. We run screaming from 2020 like...someone trying to quickly escape a really crappy year (give us a break, we ran out of metaphors around the 34th month of 2020). To help wrap this dumpster fire we talk monoliths, galactic federations, and our favorites of 2020 (hint: Cyberpunk 2077 isn't among them). Oh, and we do a mini CAFEteria 51.

The Richat Structure: The Eye of Africa or The Heart of Atlantis? | 214
4888
There isn't much we know about Atlantis (including whether it actually existed or not). And the few things we think we DO know are steeped in Greek lore. But what if Atlantis DID exist and wasn't anywhere near Greece? What if it were on an entirely different continent? This week Adam Poston of The Twisted Ten joins the fellas and makes the case that a geologic structure in modern day Mauritania is actually the ancient ruins of Atlantis. Plus, Conspiracy Bot starts reading the encyclopedia (we didn't know he could read either). Brent tells us why Atlanta holds a special place in his heart (hint: it's not the weather). And John makes inane jokes about Ancient Greek philosophers (we wish we were joking). All of that and more on the podcast that isn’t sure where Atlantis actually was...we didn’t have an altimeter when we visited - Hysteria 51.

How do you know things are serious? 1. Robert Stack gets involved. 2. Robert Stack gets involved... 'nuff said. How did a simple affair send one man to jail, kill another, and terrorize an entire hamlet...in a mystery that remains unsolved to this day? Ohio is the answer! We ask the rest of the questions this week as we examine the case of the Circleville Letters. Plus, Brent talks about his days as a vigilante (that's a kind interpretation), Conspiracy Bot acknowledges that most of his fans are in jail (also a kind interpretation), and C-Bot wants a pen pal (nothing clever to add here...just don't do it).

The Woman in Black at the Drake Hotel | 212
3168
Drake Hotel - Chicago. While it's everyone's favorite boutique hotel that doubles as a plot point in Mission Impossible it ALSO happens to be the setting for an UNSOLVED MURDER-most-foul in 1940's Chicago. A mysterious woman in black shot and killed a local socialite in her own room. And in perhaps an equally appalling offense - she was wearing a lamb coat (ok, the murder might be worse, but this thing was hideous). Anyway, that's just the appetizer in this confounding conundrum involving grifters, disappearing evidence, and a Pulp Fiction level divine-intervention to save a second shooting victim. Oh yeah, and GHOSTS! This week we grab our khaki trench coats and investigate The Woman in Black at the Drake Hotel. Plus, Conspiracy Bot tells everyone how good at chess he is (surprising). Kyle tries to eat a chess board (less surprising). And we learn C-Bot's been playing checkers the entire time (there it is). All of that and more on the podcast that asks the tough questions – like, was everything in the olden days in black and white? – Hysteria 51.

Spring-Heeled Jack Revisited | Bonus
4219
HOUSEKEEPING!!! WANT ME FLUFF PILLOW??? Maybe not that housekeeping, but it is a housekeeping week on Hysteria 51. We are switching to new host. What does that mean for you? Nothing, everything stays the same. But for us it just means some backend stuff while we get everything transitioned over. We will be back next week with brand new content, but until then enjoy one of our favorites from the back catalog, Spring-Heeled Jack! Original Description This week we hop BACK over the pond to merry ol’ England to tackle a most vile and sinister serial…slapper? Well – slapper, groper, fire belcher, carriage crasher, and more. This week we’re looking into the legend of Spring Heeled Jack. This mischievous prankster allegedly had metal claws, could leap over 10 ft. walls, breath blue fire, apparently loved to slap authority figures, and cause carriages to crash. But who was this British bouncer? Is this just a folk tale re-told over the years to explain away hundreds of different events, was there a person of extraordinary ability terrorizing the countryside, or were these just a series of glorified fraternity pranks? David Flora of the Blurry Photos podcast joins the fun to help us uncover the identity of Britain’s strangest urban legend. Plus, Conspiracy Bot tries to get rid of Flora (he’s protective of BRENT’S beer), the fellas all try their hands at a British accent and fail miserably (shocking), and a related ghost in Long Island sounds eerily similar to Keanu Reeves (whoa). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never terrified women by blowing fire into their face, we do it the old-fashioned way, by letting them see our work ethic and bank account – Hysteria 51.

The Swimmers of Lake Baikal | 211
2742
"You just never know what you'll see when you go swimming in Siberia." It's one of our favorite quotes (and one we just made up), but it's true and this week's topic proves it! In 1982 a team of Russian Navy divers go exploring in Lake Baikal when, to their amazement, they encounter giant, humanoid beings obviously not of this world. So, they did the only reasonable thing…tried to capture them with nets! Let's just say the rest of the story doesn't work out as well for the divers…it's the Swimmers of Lake Baikal this week on the show. Plus, the fellas discuss Dolph Lundgren's MENSA membership (and his dashing good looks), Conspiracy Bot finally starts to accept his loss in the election (things get broken), and Brent starts talking hip like the kids do (well, he tries). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never gone swimming in Siberia, when we’re there, we keep it to training for heavyweight bouts against Dolph Lundgren – Hysteria 51.

Mel's Hole | 210
3734
Sometimes nature's rules don't apply. Paranormal phenomena defy physics. Living beings defy death. Substances and materials defy their own make-up. And sometimes random holes in the Pacific Northwest do all of the above! At least that's the story according to Mel Waters about his aptly named "Mel's Hole". Where exactly is the hole? Does it really contain supernatural powers? Can it bring creatures back from the dead? Is Gordon Freeman's story from Half-Life actually a true story? We tie a rope to our ankle and dive into Mel's Hole this week. Plus, Conspiracy Bot refuses to concede the election (no surprise), Kyle makes a valid and salient point during a discussion (that is a surprise), and he then promptly overheats and shuts down (there it is). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never brought an animal back to life by throwing it down a bottomless pit – we do it the old fashioned way, by burying it on old Indian burial grounds in New England - Hysteria 51.

3457
You didn't think flat-earthers had cornered the market on looney tunes, pseudoscientific explanations for how the world works, did you? Well, we pop that thought balloon this week as we delve into the world of the Electric Universe. TL;DR - all of that crap you learned in school was wrong and the root of every force in the universe is electricity. Oh, and black holes don't exist. There's more and if you want to hear it you'll have to tune-in (you should tune-in either way). Plus, C-Bot releases his final campaign commercial before the election (we know, we can't wait for it to be over either), Kyle explains the internet (you can guess how that goes), and TJ Withington of the "Pick Me Podcast" gets his wish and joins the show (we don't get it either).

Shadow People Revisited: A Hysteria Halloween | BONUS
3931
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! This year we decided to jump in the H51 time machine and go back to episode 57 from 2017 for Shadow People Talk! Original Description: You’re laying in bed half asleep, half awake and see something out of the corner of your eye. Did that shadow just move? No, that’s silly. Shadows don’t move. But, then again…it really seemed like it moved…there it is again..but closer…and closer. It’s our ANNUAL HALLOWEEN SHOW and it’s time to talk Shadow People! Shadow people are thought by many to be conscious, intelligent, inter-dimensional beings that can move in and out of our dimension at will. And these bad boys aren’t here just to play canasta. They are reported to paralyze their victims, drain them of energy, and do much, much worse. We go hunting in the dark to find out more. Plus, we play some of our favorite clips from Halloween movies (fun!). Conspiracy Bot gets legs (bad idea!). And the show is joined by JP Doyal of Just Paranormal (horrible idea for him!). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t always see shadow people, but when we do it means 6 more weeks of HALLOWEEN – Hysteria 51.

We've got UFOs, a potential rapture, and military helicopters. And that was just the tip of the huge, diamond shaped iceberg (so huge, it was likely bigger than a Walmart). Where did the radiation sickness come from? Was the government really involved? We dig in even deeper to the Cash Landrum Incident this week. Plus, the fellas ponder throwing Conspiracy Bot into molten steel (understandable). Kyle joins the Secret Service (less than understandable). And Dr. Chris Cogswell comes back to the Lower 4th to help decipher the madness (inexplicable).

They say diamonds are a girl's best friend. Well, not so much if said diamond is flying in the sky, messing up your sweet Oldsmobile, and emitting cancer causing radiation that ruins your life. We know what you’re thinking, "That old chestnut". But that is just what Betty Cash, Vickie Landrum, and Vickie’s grandson Colby say they experienced. We tackle the tough questions this week in Part 1 of our 2 part dive into the Cash Landrum Incident. Questions like did a secret military craft or even aliens change these people’s lives forever? Did Robert Stack wear clothes under all those trench coats on Unsolved Mysteries? Is Conspiracy Bot running for President?

Disney Conspiracies: Secrets from the House of Mouse | 206
4337
It might be the happiest place on earth, but there is some strange stuff going on with the corporate mouse machine. From cryogenically frozen founders to wraiths in the rides - the house of mouse has its share of folktale and lore. But which of these stories have a foundation in reality and which are nothing but glorified creepypasta? We put on our ears, grab an overpriced corndog, and get to the bottom of Disney conspiracies this week. Plus, the fellas talk about the benefits of living in Orlando (it’s a short conversation), Brent talk about the benefits of having Conspiracy Bot as your accountant (it’s a shorter conversation), and the show benefits with special guest James Payton (unfortunately for him, it isn’t a short conversation) All of that and more on the podcast that’s never been to a Disney theme park, but we do have robots with plans to have our heads frozen - Hysteria 51.

Somewhere in the Skies w/ Ryan Sprague | 205

Look, up in the sky, it's a bird.. it's a plane...crap, it's just a book. BUT it's an awesome book by one of our favorite UFOlogists, Ryan Sprague - and this week we interrogate Ryan on all things Somewhere In The Skies. How has UFOlogy changed in the last few years? Is disclosure being spoon fed to the American people? Will Blink-182 ever reunite? This week we ask the tough questions. Plus, what are the fellas reading in their spare time (hint: lots of pictures)? How tall is Tom Cruise (hint: not very)? And will John annoy us with another Tom DeLonge impression (hint: is water wet)? All of that and more on the podcast that doesn't read a lot, but when we do - the books have pictures - Hysteria 51.

The Great Escape From Alcatraz: Free Men or Fish Food? | 204
3230
In the dead of night on June 11th 1962, four men set out to escape America’s ‘inescapable’ prison...three were never seen or heard from again. What was the fate of Frank Morris and the Anglin brothers? After crafting a master plan over the course of months, did they triumphantly escape Alcatraz and start new lives? Or, did nature stop the escape that guards couldn’t? This week we grab our raincoats and shivs and dive into San Francisco Bay as we investigate the escape from Alcatraz. Plus, Conspiracy Bot gets put in timeout (unsurprisingly), Kyle seems to enjoy timeout (unsurprisingly), and we discover a prison they willingly let Brent out of (surprisingly!). All of that and more on the podcast that made it through an entire episode about The Rock without one Sean Connery imitation (extra surprisingly) - Hysteria 51.

Life on Venus? | 203

Life... uhh… Finds a way. At least that's what Jeff Goldblum tells us. If you've been watching the news recently you have probably seen the finding of phosphine in the clouds of Venus, a biproduct of life. That's just what we are talking this week with the help of David Flora of Blurry Photos. Will Venus change the way we look for life? Is Lando Calrissian salivating at the news?

The Shag Harbour UFO Incident | 201
3794
This week’s topic is a lot like a mullet: business in the front and a party in the back! The Shag Harbour UFO incident starts as a fairly benign UFO sighting; a straightforward tale of “what was that in the sky?” But by the time it’s over we’ve got USOs, an alien rescue craft, and RUSSIANS! It’s crazy, it’s Canadian, it’s the Shag Harbour UFO incident this week. Plus, David Harbour’s dad-bod, John gets tripped up on his own joke, and former Special Forces Operator Jeff Adamec is back on the program to validate all of our military conspiracy hunches. He is also "former" DOD and Homeland Security so he may just be here keeping tabs on Conspiracy Bot, time will tell. All of that and more on the podcast that’s never been to Shag Harbour, but we know a certain Harbour we’d like to shag (figuratively) – Hysteria 51.

The Max Headroom Signal Hijacking | 199
4936
Remember the good old days when hacking didn't mean election tampering? It just meant pirating a broadcast signal or putting a less than appropriate picture on the front page of someone's website. Well, we long for those simpler times and on this week's episode we're covering one of the most famous in history (hijacking broadcast signals…not naughty pictures). The Max Headroom Signal Hijacking took place here in the lower 4th (Chicago) on two separate stations (WGN / WTTW) on the same November night in 1987. And while the content wasn't sinister - it certainly did cause an uproar. The strange broadcast interruption was a weird blend of anti-establishment rant and absurdist comedy (with some spanking thrown in for good measure). The strangest thing? The case has never been solved. So grab you New Coke, pop in a blank VHS and hit record as we cover the The Max Headroom Signal Hijacking this week. Plus Conspiracy Bot goes all Outer Limits on us, then C-Bot decides to go hack someone else's podcast with Kyle's help, and Moxie LaBouche of the Your Brain on Facts podcast goes slummin' and joins this dumpster fire to help sort out the insanity. All of that and more on the podcast that's never been hacked (unless you count the robot co-host) - Hysteria 51.

Number Stations Revisited | BONUS

Brent and John are out this week so Cbot takes the helm to bring back Number Stations for another spin. The boys will be back next week with max Brooks for a cryptid filled ride into his new book, Devolution! Number Stations original Description: Why are there nearly untraceable radio broadcasts all around the world of seemingly random number sequences? What is their true purpose and who is behind them? Are these vestiges of Cold War spy-craft? A simplistic way for modern day terrorists to communicate? Or simply the most bizarre way to communicate with aliens this side of “Out Of This World” (you realize that was Burt Reynolds)? This week we head that the local RadioShack, get a cipher pad, and get to work. Plus, Conspiracy Bot decides he’s going to win the lottery (he won’t). We talk bad morning FM radio (we hate shows with too many drops and worthless characters). And we question how good Cuba actually is at this whole espionage thing (but man are they good at the sandwich thing). All of that and more on the podcast that isn’t in the spy game, but if we were we’d probably be a lot less James Bond and a lot more Austin Powers – Hysteria 51.

Satanic Panic Revisited | BONUS
6064
John and Brent are on assignment this week procuring more Bot Booze ingredients for CBot. That means we get to revisit one of their favorite episodes from the past: Satanic Panic! Original Description Remember that year or two in the 80’s when you weren’t allowed to do anything? Yeah – this week’s topic was pretty much the problem. The “Satanic Panic” was this all too real period mostly during the 80’s that America’s housewives knew their kid’s souls were being stolen by “beelzebub”, Ozzy, and anyone else they were listening to on that “devil machine”. The problem with this joke is real people suffered. Real lives were lost and the “devil” had nothing to do with any of it. We break out our black t-shirts, dye our hair, and get to the HYSTERIA (too obvious?) behind it all this week. Plus, C-Bot makes it as a comedian (he thinks), Brent goes chaotic neutral (an upgrade?), and the boys welcome a “pentagram” of guests (it really was an accident). All of that an more on the podcast that’s never been the victim of Satanic Ritual Abuse, but if they were they’re sure it would be at the hands…check that…pincers…of Conspiracy Bot – Hysteria 51.   Support the show: https://www.patreon.com/Hysteria51 See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Elvis From Outer Space | 196
4338
We all know Elvis is living with Tupac and JFK under the pyramids. That said, over the years there have been as many stories, theories, and rumors about Elvis’ demise (or lack thereof) as hip thrusts in Jailhouse Rock. And while the debate rages on for some, a new sci-fi flick has a decidedly different angle on what happened. Elvis From Outer Space is a fun take on the Elvis conspiracy world - where the King didn’t die in Memphis, but rather went to live with the Grays in Alpha Centauri. This week we explore the lore behind the Elvis world of conspiracy and interview both the film’s director and star. Plus, Brent tries his best Elvis hip shake, Conspiracy Bot is selling pills to kids, and we go deep on Michael Jackson’s hair fire. All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t actually believe Elvis is still alive…and we mostly blame the robot – Hysteria 51.

Punk Rock and UFOS w/ Mike Damante | 195

This week we interview author Mike Damante and talk his newest book- Punk Rock and UFOs: Stranger Than Fiction. Is there a connection between Punk Rock and UFOs? Is there a connection between organized religion and Bad Religion (still love 21st Century Digital Boy)? And is a band actually a band if there are no members of the band in the band? We go deep this week. Plus, the fellas discuss their favorite songs for space exploration, Conspiracy Bot digs into Brent’s old CD collection (yikes), and we play some more tunes from Majungas. All of that and more on the podcast who’s hosts read a lot of books, but the same cant be said for the head researcher– Hysteria 51. Guest Bio: Mike Damante is the author of the non-fiction trilogy of the paranormal “Punk rock and UFOs” series “Punk rock and UFOs: Stranger Than Fiction," “Punk rock and UFOs: True Believers" and "Punk Rock and UFOs: Cryptozoology Meets Anarchy." In 2019 he released his first YA fiction novel “Pumpkin Spice and Nothing Nice.” Damante worked for the Houston Chronicle as a copy editor, writer, reporter and web producer. He currently produces their "MIKED" music blog and has interviewed bands and musicians like Bad Religion, blink-182, Taking Back Sunday, Tom DeLonge, Tegan and Sara, Aerosmith, B.o.B and countless others. He is an award-winning educator, and teaches Journalism, English and Creative Writing in Houston, Texas.

Wilson / Davis Papers: Proof the Gov’t KNOWS? | 194
4393
Secret meetings tend to be secret because secrets are being secreted around because they’re...ya know...secret. But sometimes records of those meetings get released. And sometimes they’re about aliens. And sometimes they’re about reverse engineering extraterrestrial technology. The Wilson / Davis papers are supposedly that. But are they real? Can the players be trusted? Is Blink-182 involved again? That’s this week as we discuss the Wilson / Davis papers. Plus, we create the Bob Lazar Extended Universe (like Marvel but less believable), Dr. Chris Cogswell resurfaces to science us up (it’s almost as if you’re doing too much...nevermind), and the fellas discuss the DC movie universe (the cartoons might be better). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t always do episodes on secret government meetings, but when we do they tend to be insignificant and with lower level officials - Hysteria 51.

The Solway Spaceman: An Intergalactic Photo Bomb | 192
3210
Nothing worse than a photobomb. There you are minding your own business, taking a picture of your lovely daughter and next thing you know some idiot time traveler / astronaut / inter-dimensional being drops his/her/its mug into your frame. And while we’ve all been through it, there’s a famous version we’re talking about this week - The Solway Firth Spaceman. Where did the other figure come from? Could this be a real, true documentation of a close encounter? How much is free film for a year actually worth? We dive in deep and see what develops. Plus, Conspiracy Bot actually did research this week (albeit unsuccessfully, but...ya know...baby steps). Brent channels his inner British housewife from the 1960s (it wasn’t a huge leap). And John starts talking about time travel again (we wish it existed so we could go back and stop him). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t do a ton of photo shoots, but when we do they’re in the UK and they involve a spaceman – Hysteria 51.

Revisiting Robert Smalls: The Civil War's Most Incredible Untold Story | 191
3139
This week we’re taking a breath. After the murder of George Floyd and ensuing justified protests…and military intervention in said protests – we couldn’t let the moment pass without saying something. We’re 2 white guys in middle America. We are literally the definition of white privilege. So, we’re not going to pretend to understand what its like to walk around black in this country. But, that doesn’t mean we don’t empathize and see the need for radical reform. The inhumane police brutality perpetuated on the black people of this country has to stop. Names like Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Philando Castile, Breonna Taylor, Justin Howell, Jamel Floyd, and countless others are etched into the shameful footnotes of the history of this country and we have to be better. We know there has been looting. And, we know not all cops are bad. But people need to stop using these arguments as if they negate the REALNESS of what is happening and HAS BEEN happening for literally hundreds of years to the black community of this country. It’s a false equivalency. BLACK LIVES MATTER. It can’t be said enough. So, instead of a new episode this week we’re releasing an episode we’re proud of that raises up one of history’s black heroes. And while we’ll continue to try and do a better job of elevating black stories of a fortean nature. Its up to all of us to take steps in our own community. Vote, Speak Out, Donate, Protest. Most importantly, STAND UP when you see racism happening. Stay Woke, Meatsacks! Original Description Imagine this for a potential movie: Guy is born into slavery. Escapes his bonds by stealing the ship he’s a slave on and delivering it to the Union (it’s the Civil War). He goes onto captain the very boat he was a slave on, buy the house he was slave in, and eventually be elected to Congress. And that isn’t even half the story. While it isn’t a movie, it is the story of Robert Smalls and it’s so incredible we cover it this week. Plus, Joe Peck somehow figures out how to make an appearance without actually being on the show, C-Bot gets a kill-switch, and Lincoln joins the show (the President…not John’s son). All of that and more on the podcast never captained a ship, but we imagine it would be less Robert Smalls and more Gilbert and Sullivan – Hysteria 51..

The Gulf Breeze Incident(s) - Florida Man Goes UFO Huntin' | 188
5992
Look, we know Florida gets a bad rap. You have one bath salt zombie and all of a sudden, you're the crazy state. And while tales of alligators on meth are great fodder for the local news outlets, it seems some groups a little farther from home have taken a shining to the…Sunshine State. One specific town there to be specific - Gulf Breeze, Florida. In the late 80's and early 90's, Gulf Breeze was a magnet for UFO sightings and alleged abductions. But why was so much of this activity centered around a guy named Ed Walters? Is his photographic evidence legit? Why would aliens communicate with poker dog pics? We grab our windbreakers and investigate the Gulf Breeze flap this week. Plus, Rob Kristoffersen from the Our Strange Skies podcast joins the fun. Kyle seems possessed again. And Conspiracy Bot offers his help during these uncertain times (you don't want it). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t always hear aliens speaking to us telepathically, but when we do it’s ALF - Hysteria 51.

Doomsday Clock: Countdown to Extinction w/ The Brohio Podcast | 187
4445
Did you know the world is going to end in 100 seconds? Well, sort of. Welcome to the Doomsday Clock - a measurement on how close mankind is to destroying itself. And while it might sound like the super weapon used by the bad guy in a surprisingly educational James Bond movie, it's actually a science backed vehicle for educating the world on how close The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists believes we are to wiping ourselves off the face of the planet. Between climate change, nuclear proliferation, disruptive tech, and Tiger King - we're closer to the end of it all than we've ever been. But is the clock accurate? Can we turn back the hands of time? What do the reptilians have to do with it? It's the end of the world as we know it and we feel fine as we unpack the Doomsday Clock this week. Plus, the fellas are joined by the Delicious Nickalicious and Rob Dog from The Brohio Podcast (they're nice). Conspiracy Bot tries to advance the Doomsday Clock (he's not). And we learn Conspiracy Bot is sending Kyle on magazine runs (Soap Opera digest - we shook our heads too).

Atomic Spies: The Secret Soviet Program To Nick A Nuke | 186
4764
In the years leading up to WW2, scientists from all over the world speculated about the potential for a new type of weapon – one that harnessed the power of the atom. And while the Americans, Brits, and Canadians were busy building the largest secret project in the history of secret projects (The Manhattan Project)...the Soviets had a different strategy: just steal it. So, as WW2 rages on, the US and USSR are still frenemies. But, under the surface the Cold War has begun. Enter the Atomic Spies. Exactly how many agents did the Soviets have under our noses? Were they successful in stealing our secrets to create their own nuke? Did Picasso know The Pope? We grab our decoder rings and infiltrate the Atomic Spies this week. Plus, C-Bot thinks Yakov Smirnoff makes a good vodka (¯\_(ツ)_/¯), Kyle knows waaaay too much about Brent and John’s past (¯\_(ツ)_/¯), and Kevin Crispin and JTR Brown make a return to the lower 4th (¯\_(ツ)_/¯).

It’s 1986 and you’re haulin’ massive amounts of French hooch back to Japan. Admittedly it would tempting to get ‘high on your own supply’, but flying a 747 while drunk is frowned upon. Yet, by the end of the flight, some might assume you were. Why? Well, you saw 3 big ol’ UFOs over eastern Alaska. We’re talking gravity defying, Tic Tac level UFOs. And that’s only the beginning of the story of the Japan Airlines Flight 1628 Incident. What did the pilots really see? Is it possible for one pilot to see something the others don’t? Just exactly how many Walmarts make up an air craft carrier? We ask the tough questions this week as we get to the bottom of the incident. Plus, the fellas talk the long forgotten Spike TV gem MXC (if you haven’t, you must), Kyle learns yet another language (how does this keep happening?), and there’s at least one reference to Mr Roboto (if you haven’t, you sort of, MAYBE should). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t always cover UFO stories from Alaska, but when we do – they most certainly involve wine – Hysteria 51.

Agenda 21: Good Suggestions or Gross Subjugation? | 184
4457
Agenda 21 - What is it? Some new video game where you’re an assassin who gets double crossed by the very organization you work for? Or, perhaps it’s a coming of age teen comedy, all about a profane, yet lovable group of high schoolers on a quest to score beer for the BIG party. Or MAYBE it’s a multinational, multilateral, non-binding, action plan from the United Nations! If you guessed C you’re right (though we kinda wish it was A or B)! BUT, to some, it also could be a ‘wolf-in-sheep’s clothing’ plan to establish the New World Order and control the population as to benefit the Earth (yeah, we hadn’t heard of eco-fascism either). But what’s the truth? Is this a toothless list of suggestions that is nothing more than the multi-national, Utopian version of Eat Pray Love? Or, is it a sinister plot by a cabal of business and political leaders to eventually enslave us? We grab our Julia Roberts movie collection and investigate this week. Plus, C-Bot pines for the future that was Robocop (he’s a Kurtwood Smith fan), Kyle does his best ED-209 impression (we hope it was an impression), and the Wayans Brothers make an appearance on the show (not really, but we talk about them). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t always talk non-binding sustainability plans orchestrated by the UN, but when we do, we rely heavily on the opinion of idiot robots – Hysteria 51.

Paris Time Gap | 183
3834
One mysterious night in the early 20th century all pendulum clocks stopped at the exact same moment in Paris, France. At that same moment, 1000's of Parisians experienced dizziness, nausea, and more. The strangest thing about the whole thing? The story didn’t appear in full until a 2019 episode of Top 10 Secrets and Mysteries (Netflix’s Ancient Aliens, but more non-E.T. stuff). Did something truly extraordinary happen that night in Paris, or does Netflix have an extraordinarily bad show on their hands? We go back in time this week to dig up the answer. Plus, we learn what soaps Conspiracy Bot is watching (what?), we learn Kyle speaks Spanish (what??), and we learn how you spend quarantine with 2 idiot robots (carefully).

CAFEteria 51: Vienna Sausages | Bonus
2962
In our inaugural episode of "CAFEteria 51" (which is really just a ramble-cast where we eat weird food and complain a lot), we examine the food that put the "hot dog flavored water" in Limp Bizkit's...well you get the idea. We're eating Vienna Sausages! What are they made of (you don't want to know) Are they healthy (you don't want to know)? Does adding Brie and a toast-point somehow improve the experience (whether you want to know or not, you'll find out)? All of that and more on the podcast that doesn't always release extra content, but when we do it will likely include encased meats - CAFEteria 51.

Billy Meier: UFO Profit or Petty Profiteer | 181
3960
Eduard Albert Meier, commonly nicknamed "Billy" is the founder of a UFO religion called the "Freie Interessengemeinschaft für Grenz- und Geisteswissenschaften und Ufologiestudien" (Free Community of Interests for the Border and Spiritual Sciences and Ufological Studies) and alleged contactee whose UFO photographs are claimed to show alien spacecraft.” AND THAT’S JUST THE FIRST SENTENCE OF WIKIPEDIA. Needless to say we have fun with this one. Plus, Joe Peck is somehow back again, Kyle has developed an unhealthy relationship with Alexa, and Joe Peck is somehow back again (did we mention that)?

H51 Classic: Bug IN Bag (also our incoherent ramblings on today's state of affairs) | BONUS
5902
What do you do when there’s a global pandemic? RECYCLE OLD MATERIAL! OK, we kid, but in this special release we’re giving you an oldy, but a goody – our 9th episode – “Prepping for the Apocalypse”. But have no fear, you get a good 20 minutes of meaty John and Brent goodness up front talking about the coronavirus, John’s positive test (you’ll have to listen to know what that means), and the likely cause of all this (it involves C-Bot). Then we launch into the episode dating all the way back to a simpler time…2016. When all we had to worry about were election results. Ah, the good ol’ days. ANYWAY, here it is in all of its pre-pandemic glory. Also, on the advice of council we’d like to stress we aren’t endorsing turning into Brendan Fraser in Blast From The Past – just keep your eyes open and if you want to order one or two things on Amazon that could help in a pinch – hey no one is stopping you. Stay healthy, look out for one another, and call your family – they’re bored. XOXOXO – Hysteria 51. Original Description: Zombies, civil unrest, natural catastrophe, Trump, alien invasion, super contagion…all potential harbingers of apocalypse. When the time comes, will you be prepared? In episode 9 Brent and John dive into the world of doomsday prepping. Want to know what to put in a bug-out bag? Brent will tell you (but if you need a knife suggestion – we wouldn’t ask him). John learns everything he needs to know from YouTube, and the fellas talk the advantages of “bugging in” (hint: mattresses are more comfortable than rocks). Plus a taste test of military MREs (meals ready to eat)…all of that and more on the sodium packed edition of Hysteria 51.

The Kentucky Meat Shower: The Day It Rained Meat | 178
3303
Weird things happen in Kentucky…chili buns…distilleries in dry counties…Johnny Depp. But perhaps the strangest was the day it rained meat on a rural farmstead. The event, now known as the Kentucky Meat Shower, is not only 100% real, it’s also yet to be fully explained. What would cause the heavens to open and drop a meaty monsoon on an unsuspecting farmer’s wife? We grab our umbrellas (and grills) and dive in to the Kentucky Meat Shower this week. Plus, Joe Peck returns to the show (it was unexpected), Kyle gets buggy again (less unexpected), and Conspiracy Bot has a new song (we wish we hadn’t expected it).

Operation Mincemeat: The Hero Who Never Was | 177
3135
Did you know that James Bond saved the Allies during WW2 and turned the tide of the war? Well, that’s the clickbait, misleading version – but closer to accurate than you think. Operation Mincemeat was a secret spy plan executed by the MI5, Britain’s counter-intelligence and security agency, during WW2. The audacious plan involved planting fake war plans, tracking a single eyelash, and the success of one agent, Captain (Acting Major) William Martin – who was already dead. We’ll explain that. We grab our shoe phone, hop into our Aston Martin, and sneak into Operation Mincemeat this week. Plus, Conspiracy Bot is cooking again (that’s bad), Kyle is helping him cook (that’s worse), and the fellas try the cooking (RIP).

The Mysterious Disappearance of the Yuba County 5 | 176
3473
In late February of 1978, five men were heading home from attending a college basketball game when they stopped for some snacks. This would be the last time the men were seen or heard from again (maybe). Thus begins the strange story of the Yuba County Five. What caused these men to drive the opposite direction of their homes in the dead of night? Why would they navigate up a snowy mountain road only to abandon their (perfectly good) car and set out on foot? Where is the fifth man whose remains were never found? And that’s only the tip of the iceberg on this truly bizarre and mystifying tale. We grab our flashlights and snowshoes to go in search of the Yuba County Five this week. Plus, Alexa tries to take over John’s hosting duties (might be an improvement), we discover that for some reason Conspiracy Bot has dry cleaning (he’ll try to explain), and the fellas spend way too much time examining an inane aspect of the story (translation: it’s just another episode).

Water Fluoridation: I Drank What? | 175
2471
Three quarters of the United States’ public water supplies and supplies of at least 24 other countries are artificially fluoridated. Meaning, fluoride is added to the drinking water to pass it along to the population. Ostensibly this is being done to strengthen our teeth (you paid attention in health class, right?) BUT, there are some that believe there is a much more sinister plan behind the synthetic shenanigans. Is this simply a harmless additive that we should thank the government for, or is there something much more sinister behind the additive? Are they saving us dentist appointments or turning us into witless lemmings as to allow THEM to do as they please? We grab our water bottles and talk fluoridation this week. Plus, British Announcer guy pops in unannounced (not surprising), Conspiracy Bot isn’t happy to seem him (also not surprising), and the Brit has an unhealthy interest in Kyle (a bit more surprising).

Lake City Quiet Pills: Reddit, Internet Mysteries, and Assassins…Oh My! | 174
3189
The internet is full of mysteries. Most of them are driven by either a lack of information or a gigantic leap in logic. But then there’s some, some that can’t be explained away by ignorance. Some that can’t be ignored by logic. Case in point, the mystery of the Lake City Quiet Pills. What begins, at cursory glance, with the death of an aging veteran with a penchant for inappropriate photos of young women – quickly devolves into what could be a world-wide network of mercenaries and assassins. Was there a secret group of top level mercs-for-hire executing deadly missions all across the world – all being puppet mastered by a redditor named Religion of Peace? Or is this yet another case of the uninformed leading the ignorant into the mobius strip of phony internet hoaxes? That’s the Lake City Quiet Pills and it’s this week. Plus, the fellas talk the Oscars (not really, but unlike the Oscars – Rambo Last Blood makes an appearance here). Kyle seems a little off (well, more than usual).

The Assassination of Rasputin: 99 Problems But a Tsar Ain’t One | 173
2939
There lived a certain man in Russia long ago. He was big and strong, in his eyes a flaming glow. Most people look at him with terror and with fear. But to Moscow chicks he was such a lovely dear. He could preach the Bible like a preacher, full of ecstasy and fire. But he also was the kind of teacher women would desire. OK – that doesn’t have a ton to do with the actual Rasputin, but man it’s a fun 1978 Euro disco hit single by the Germany-based pop band Boney M. That’s where we start week 2 of our exploration of Rasputin. And while his eyes might not have actually been aflame, his supernatural reputation continues to precede him. Was he really a mystic healer? Did he actually eat enough cyanide to kill a small town without the slightest effect? How many bullets can you put into a “mad monk” before he goes down? We stay in Russia this week as we explore the death and legacy of everyone’s favorite miscreant – Ra-Ra-Rasputin. Plus, Conspiracy Bot admits a penchant for crocheting (we don’t know), Brent spends a little too much time researching…lil Rasputin (again, no idea), and John drops a Bonya and Kuzmich reference (we give up). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t always get its hosts back, but when we do – we aren’t sure they were better than the replacements - Hysteria 51.

Rasputin: Magical Dark Monk or Malodorous Drunk Mountebank? | 172
2953
Grigori Rasputin was one of the vilest, yet powerful villains in history. He was a giant both metaphorically and literally. He controlled magical powers of the dark arts, likely supplied by the devil. He was so powerful that after being poisoned, shot, stabbed, shot again, beaten, and thrown into a river – he was not yet dead. Or…. Grigori Rasputin was a short, drunk womanizer that constantly stunk. Yet somehow, he wormed his way into the royal court of Nicholas the 2nd, the last Czar of Russia. Any “magic” or paranormal ability he showed was a mixture of good old-fashioned quackery and psycho somatic results – amplified by legend and time. Which is true? Could both be legitimate accounts of one of the most notorious names in Russian history. We grab our ruler and head to 19th Century Russia to find out this week. Plus, Brent mistakes early 20th century Russian literature for Star Trek (who hasn’t?), Conspiracy Bot compares childhood mortality rates in 19th Century Russia to a Meatloaf song (who hasn’t), and the fellas get sick on Aldebaran whiskey for national “Ditch Your New Year’s Resolutions Day” (again, who hasn’t?). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t always talk late 19th century Russian historical figures, but when we do you better believe they have their own theme song - Hysteria 51.

Thylacine: Hunted to Extinction or Hide & Seek Champ Since 1936? | 171
2792
So often on shows like this we talk about a cryptid that might not even have ever BEEN. Their mere existence; conjecture – their birth; legend. BUT, this case is a bit different. The Thylacine or Tasmanian Tiger was a real, honest-to-goodness, Linnaean classified animal! No conjecture here. There are stuffed versions of these bad boys in museums across the world! But, what happened to them? Did this missing marsupial truly go extinct, or did they recede into the shadows to become the subject of folktale and lore fueled by real sightings? We grab our boxing gloves and go on a walkabout in search of Tassie this week.

Ectoplasm: Real Ghost Goo or Make-Believe Muck? | 170
2989
“He slimed me”. This quote from the venerable parapsychologist Dr Peter Venkman was likely your introduction to the phenomenon known as ectoplasm. But Slimer and the Ghostbusters weren’t the first folks to encounter the goo. Ectoplasm has been reported and photographed for over a century. Is this paranormal plasma truly a physical manifestation of the spirit world or simply another hoax perpetuated by fools and phonies? We grab our Ecto Coolers and dive into a warm pool of Ectoplasm this week. Plus a member of the show makes their triumphant return (oh and John’s back too), bad jokes are made about being slimed (Brent is still here), and Conspiracy Bot screws up the very small amount of research he was supposed to do (stay gold, Ponyboy). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t always have its hosts go on sabbatical, but when we do it’s for a good reason (cheese muffins) - Hysteria 51.

KRAMPUS - A Conspiracy Bot Bonus!
3952
CBot wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas.... But he is lazy.... So he decided to just re-upload our Krampus Episode to make your festivities even jollier. Enjoy!! It’s the most wonderful time of the year and you know what that means. Stockings, snowmen, hot chocolate, nativity scenes, gingerbread men, horned goat half demons that will drag children to hell. That’s right, to go right along with Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick, there’s a more sinister Christmas character lurking beneath the shadows. Krampus – the Christmas Demon! Santa might bring gifts for good little girls and boys – Krampus doesn’t. The hairy beast hits bad kids with sticks and sometimes even throws them in his sack to take back to hell. This week we fire up the Hysteria Sleigh and explore the legend. Plus, are non-Christmas Christmas movies actually Christmas movies (trust us, it’ll make sense)? Conspiracy Bot does his best Clark Griswold. And the fellas exchange Christmas gifts (just be glad they didn’t buy for you). So throw another yule log on the fire, grab a glass of eggnog and cozy up for one hell of a Christmas tradition as we celebrate the holidays the only way we know how on the podcast that doesn’t always do a holiday episode, but when it does…does it right – Hysteria 51.

How did a septuagenarian buggering wannabe rock-star suffering from dyslexia go from handyman to cult leader, culminating in the death of 80 people? We try to answer that very question this week (and not because Cbot is looking for tips). Plus, Kevin Crispin returns to the lower 4th, J.T.R.

Skinny Bob | 162

From the first contact in 1942, a series of diplomatic visits to discuss matters of mutual concern were planned. Under the treaty 23/04, these meetings would take place in secrecy, a limited number of special agents would escort visitors and they would only meet high ranking officers… or at least that is what a series of videos posted to YouTube in 2011 by ivan0135 tells us. The videos that introduced us to Skinny Bob, alien sensation! Was Ivan a man in the know drip feeding us disclosure? A KGB plant testing our gullibility? Or is it all a poorly done hoax and some thrown together CGI? We tackle that this week with the help of Rob Kristofferson from Our Strange Skies Podcast. Also, Cbot get’s his inspirational quotes from a surprising source (Celebrity rants), Goforth is still out (Bangkok has him now), and Brent ponders Remote viewing classes (fingers crossed he tales them).

Plus, Cbot claims he collects skulls (he might), Kevin loses sleep over a mole (those boarders do look irregular), and Brent claims men at work is the greatest movie of all time (it is).

This week Brent takes over host duties as John is on assignment in… Delaware… But have no fear, David Flora of Blurry Photos Podcast steps up and channels his inner Goforth. Plus CBot throws his hat into the hosting ring(don’t worry, we won’t let him), David talks about his Hypnotic Regressions sessions (He may or may not have been Joan of arc in a former life), and we sit down with the creators of the Documentary Extraordinary: The Seeding to talk Alien-Human Hybrids!! All that and more on the podcast that asks if someone is a human / alien hybrid – aren’t they technically a GMO? – Hysteria 51 Extraordinary: The Seeding Abductions. Reproduction experiments. Memories of seeing children off-planet. The idea of humans participating in an alien hybrid program sounds absurd until you talk to people who have experienced it. Thousands of women and men around the world have had reproductive experiments carried out against their will. The most harrowing? Unexplained pregnancies that terminate without explanation. In many cases, the memories of what happened remain suppressed and fragmented, leaving experiencers confused, depressed and with a profound sense of loss. In others, the memories are visceral and emotionally disturbing. Thanks to increased public acceptance and regression therapy, more and more people are coming forward with stories of abductions and strange fertilization procedures that occur during their frightening experiences. Are aliens involved in a complex hybridization project where human females are used as vessels to carry hybrid fetuses and human males have their sperm harvested until they’re ready to be transferred “elsewhere?” And if so, to what end? “Extraordinary: The Seeding” is a riveting documentary that tells these stories through one-on-one interviews with abductees-brave individuals willing to share intensely personal and emotional stories with the rest of the world. Through analysis with global ufology experts, the film also explores hybridization, why it’s happening and what the impact on humanity is and will be. The information presented is intended to educate, entertain and encourage audiences to ask one simple question: What if this is all true?

The Shaver Mystery: Ancient Robots, Evil Aliens, and the Caves They Live In | 157

We’ve all been there – you’re on the job and something goes wonky with your welding gun. Next thing you know you’re telepathic and can not only read the thoughts of your co-workers, but also an evil race of robots living underground. You know, that old yarn. Well, it also happened to Richard Shaver and afterwards he sent his account of living with them to a magazine. When the magazine’s publisher received it, he did the logical thing: re-wrote it to be 3 times longer and published it. And if this sounds wild, that’s just the tip of the stalactite. This week we grab our ray guns and pick axes as we go in search of The Shaver Mystery. Plus, Conspiracy Bot thinks you can podcast through a ham radio (actually might improve this show), he also thinks he smells burnt toast (weird for a robot with a toaster for a head), and the fellas turn a fake language into a treatment for irregularity (I’d love to tell you this makes more sense when you listen, but I don’t want to lie).

Mongolian Death Worms: Acidic Annelid or Nomad Nonsense? | 156
2634
We’re back in the cryptid cornucopia this week with Mongolian Death Worms. We know, we know….they sound cuddly, but we wouldn’t suggest snuggling up. These enormous worm-like creatures allegedly live in the Gobi desert and snack on locals for sport. They spit acid, shoot electricity, and will kill a man by a mere touch (yeah, we’re surprised it isn’t Australian too). But are Mongolian Death Worms the surreptitious stalkers from legend, or are they merely a campfire tale passed down through generations? We grab the spice, call Kevin Bacon, and escape the Great Pit of Carkoon this week as we investigate. Plus, Kyle seems to be MIA (at least its quieter), Conspiracy Bot predicts Brent’s demise (is it a prediction if you cause it?), and the fellas discuss the weird stuff they did with bugs as a kid (magnifying glasses anyone?). All of that and more on the podcast that wonders, if you cut a Mongolian Death Worm in half do you get two Mongolian Death Worms? Hysteria 51.

Westall UFO Incident: A Close Encounter of the Australian Kind | 154
2882
Elementary school is such a fun experience. How could you not love the art projects, lunchtime with your friends, recess, UFO sightings…. Well, that last one is specific to a small suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia (also colloquially known as Westall). The Westall UFO Incident took place on April 6th, 1966, when over 200 students and faculty in the area reportedly observed multiple UFOs defying physics and toying with other, more terrestrial aircraft. This was followed by the appearance of a mysterious military type unit with designs on covering the whole thing up. What really happened in Westall? Who were the mysterious men telling locals to keep their mouths shut? Do windsocks react with swamp-gas? We head back to the Land Down Under this week and investigate. Plus, British Announcer Guy is back and has a bone to pick with Conspiracy Bot (this might not end well), the fellas try to calm things down with a negotiation of sorts (also not likely to end well), and even Kyle gets involved (definitely will not end well). All of that and more on the podcast that knows for a fact there wasn’t a UFO seen over Australia…because Australia isn’t real – Hysteria 51.

Plum Island: Bio Weapon Black Site or Disease Deterrent? | 153
3513
If the U.S. were to have a facility to exclusively study the deadliest animal pathogens in the world. Where do you think they would put it? Some remote outpost in the middle of nowhere? Thousands of feet underground? An island just off the coast of New York? If you took door number 3 you’re our winner…of foot and mouth disease! Plum Island, or the Plum Island Animal Disease Center is just off the coast of Long Island and studies some of the worst known animal diseases out there. But is that all they study? Is it really as safe as they say? Are there secret Nazi scientists are working on some of the most gruesome and devilish bio-weapons right under our noses? We slip into our bio-hazard suits and research it this week. Plus, the robots are on everyone’s last nerve (cheese muffins), a certain British announcer makes his way to the Lower Fourth (no, we still don’t really understand him), and Brent gives everyone a nautical lesson on WW2 era submarines (let’s just say you shouldn’t site him as a research source).

The Great Pyramid of Giza is a Water Pump w/ Steven Myers | 152
3943
The majesty of the Great Pyramid of Giza is unrivaled. Its masterful design, its mind-boggling construction, the fact that’s its just an ancient, enormous water pump in the middle of the desert. Ummm, well, that’s the opinion of more than one expert and that of our guest this week – Steve Meyers. Steven has been studying the Great Pyramid for decades and contends its design is that of a functioning water pump to quench the thirst of the ancient Egyptians (or whoever) that built them. So, this week we grab our advanced degrees in hydraulic engineering and go in search of Giza. Plus, a reference to the Large Hadron Collider and its similarity to a certain calendar makes its way back to the show (it was Conspiracy Bot ), the fellas discuss their favorite “out of place artifact” (it’s not Conspiracy Bot), and both robots seem a little glitchier than normal (mostly just Conspiracy Bot). All of that and more on the podcast that believes all ancient monuments have a modern day use – they look like calendars - Hysteria 51.

Abominable Snowman: Our Second Yeti Episode That We Cleverly Named To Trick You Into Listening | 151
3569
Yetis are like Jello – there’s always room for more. This week we dive even deeper into the fury beasts. What do the locals think? Where can you find the scalp? What’s the difference between a Sherpa and a sherpa (there is one). And finally, once and for all, are they real and what are they? So, once again, we pack up our snow gear and head into the fray. Plus, Conspiracy Bot surprises everyone and does some work (something’s fishy with that). Kyle says he did his work, but didn’t (nothing fishy there). And we welcome back Erik Severinghaus to give a bit more color to the Himalayas (Pecker is back too and he’s always fishy). All of that and more on the podcast that finds Yetis so nice, we decided to do them twice - Hysteria 51.

Yeti: Himalayan Horror or Hiker’s Hooey? | 150
3845
Bigfoot seems to be getting all of the press these days, but what about his O.G. cousin from the far north? The Abominable Snowman or Yeti has appeared in legend, folklore, and adventurer’s stories for years...but what is it? Are we dealing with a, yet unidentified, specimen of ape or bear? Perhaps a hominid cousin we’re not yet aware of? A true snow monster? This week we strap on our crampons and go in search of Yeti. Plus, we learn the origin of C-BOT’S pet, Kyle’s, CPU (it involves a Tamagotchi). Pecker is somehow back in the lower 4th (it probably also involves a Tamagotchi). And we welcome in first timer, Erik Severinghaus, who claims Hysteria 51 is the sole reason he was able to summit Everest (oxygen deprivation is a helluva drug).

High Strangeness: An Interview w/ Author Eric Bickernicks | 149
3355
Things are getting strange in the lower 4th this week as we interview author Eric Bickernicks about his fictional (?) UFO romp, High Strangeness. Are there really spandex clad, cult members looking to “amalgamate” with aliens? Have UFOs landed in Cape Cod? Is there a better name for a law firm than Wakeman and Frasier? We ask the tough questions this week. Plus, Conspiracy Bot learns the negative side of building your own robot (we know this well). Kyle makes his triumphant return and reads some reviews of the show (it doesn’t go well). Also, David Flora joins in on the fun (well…) AND Majungus hits us with another awesome song (Intergalactic Invasion).

Storm Area 51: They Can, In Fact, Stop All of Us | 148
3234
What do you get when you combine a joke social media event with the zeitgeisty topic of UFOs? 3+ MILLION people interested in attending an impromptu party/raid of a government installation. We know, a lot to unpack here. Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us is a Facebook event created by a meme posting page on a lark – hoping to get a handful of followers. Instead it’s become an internet phenomenon covered by everyone from NBC to the New York Times to Hysteria 51 (likely the most important of the bunch). Is the joke event actually happening? If so, are there any aliens to see? If anyone tried to enter Area 51 what lethal and non-lethal methods would the military use to turn them around? What’s a Naruto run? We try to bring some clarity to the chaos this week (but likely just confuse the situation further). Plus, Conspiracy Bot builds a robot to help with his light work (yes, his name is Kyle). We learn that Bot Juice is somehow a hit (apparently it’s the “tang that will make you sang” that does it). And David Flora from the Blurry Photos podcast makes his return to the Lower 4th to add to the confusion.

The Tunguska Event: Asteroid or Aliens? | 147
3761
On an early June morning in 1908 an explosion leveled over 770 square miles of remote Siberian forest. Effects of the event were witnessed as far away as London. The blast was said to be over 1,000 times larger than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Yet, there were no known casualties (minus a whole lot of reindeer), leading some to believe there was an intelligence behind the blast. What kind of force could have unleashed a blast of that magnitude? Was it simply a huge meteor? Could extra terrestrials be responsible? Maybe Nikola Tesla finally got his “death ray” right? We grab a bottle of vodka and investigate the curious case of the Tunguska Event this week. Plus, Conspiracy Bot has a new product for sale (yes this one will likely kill you too), Brent attempts to play meteorologist (he’ll stick to podcasting), and Joe Peck is back on the show against our better judgement (he’s not welcome back). All of that and more on the podcast that only wishes on a star when it will level miles of forest and kill reindeer – Hysteria 51.

Unit 731: The WW2 Japanese Biological Testing Nightmare | 146
2783
Most people are familiar with the horrors the Nazis visited upon their victims in WW2, but what most aren’t familiar with are some equally terrifying and grotesque experiments and testing on the part of the Japanese. At the heart of this was General Shirō Ishii and his Unit 731. Unit 731 was a covert biological and chemical warfare research unit of the Imperial Japanese Army that undertook lethal human experimentation. And we don’t just mean take 2 of these and call us in the morning…if you’re alive. We’re talking about the kind of stuff that would make the devil blush. Freezing human limbs…while still attached to their very live owners. Or even worse, vivisections...you know where they dissect someone…who is still alive! Yeah, it’s a real chuckle fest this week as we explore Unit 731. Plus, we learn there’s an ideology to Conspiracy Bot’s insanity (he says he’s a giver), John gives us a dissertation on war treaties (sometimes Gofo’s just gonna Gofo), and Joe Peck makes a return visit to the lower 4th (as if he ever really left).

Spontaneous Human Combustion: Do People Just Burst Into Flames? | 145
4385
You know the old saying, “nothing can ruin your day like spontaneously catching on fire”? We don’t either, but if it isn’t a quote it should be because…ouch. Reports of Spontaneous Human Combustion span history and continents. While situations and backstories change, many constants can be found between the cases. Is it possible that a rare set of circumstances could present itself where a human being would spontaneously catch afire? Could it be something more sinister like purposeful fires set via Pyrokinesis or something equally as morbid…big tobacco? We throw on our firefighter gear and go searching this week. Plus, Conspiracy Bot is triggered and it’s because of your morning bagel (I guess everyone has their thing), the fellas talk Fire Marshall Bill (because how could they not), and Ryan Cassell makes his triumphant return to the Lower 4th (and is promptly schooled in the art of Jim Carrey – you’ll see).

Ancient alien historians theorize this will be an extra out-there episode of Hysteria 51. This week we’re “live” (not really a thing in podcasts I guess) from AlienCon 2019 in Los Angeles. See, they call Los Angeles the "City Of Angels"; but I didn't find it to be that, exactly. But I'll allow it as there are some nice folks there. Course I ain't never been to London, and I ain't never seen France. And I ain't never seen no queen in her undies, so the feller says. But I'll tell you what - after seeing Los Angeles…wait I’m getting of track here – back to this week’s show! Did someone say Pumapunku? Maybe not, but David Childress joins us. While we’re at it we catch up with Mike Bara and wind up talking Tesla. Then we top this delicious treat with a dollop of Dr Chris Cogswell as he explains how science can help us understand aliens (silly, we know). All of that and more on the podcast that, well, it's the podcast for its time and place. It fits right in there. And that's Hysteria 51.

Ever go a concert and hear an annoying ring or hum in your ears afterward? Now imagine you didn’t go to the concert, but still hear it. Where’s it coming from? Why is it worse inside my house? HOW CAN I STOP IT?!? This is the situation for 1000s of citizens across the globe that experience The Hum. It’s only in specific cities (Taos, Windsor, etc) and only certain citizens can hear it (generally 2-4%) of the population. What’s causing it? Why are some people more susceptible to than others? How do you actually pronounce Tinnitus? We put on our headphones and ask the tough questions this week about THE HUM. Plus, the fellas HUM the Crash Test Dummies for your listening pleasure (c’mon, you saw that coming), Assistant Ray becomes Producer Ray for the day (we’re unsure of the results), and we give you an update from AlienCon (spoiler – no Giorgio).

What do you do when you find a ship adrift at sea? The obvious answer is to make sure it doesn’t explode. Unfortunately the folks that came upon the S. S. Ourang Medan didn’t heed our clarion call from the future. Instead they hopped aboard and investigated this ghost ship. They came aboard to find the entirely to the crew dead. When the investigating captain finally decided to tie ‘er up and toe ‘er back…that’s then the suspect ghost ship decided to explode and sink. What was actually aboard? What does cyanide taste like? This week we throw on our life preservers and find out. Plus, Brent makes a ”Jon Boat” joke (we’re sorry), we decide red shirts likely do need to be the losers of the away team (call us Riker), and the fellas get some help from an unlikely place…Kevin Crispin!

Indigo Children: Superpowered or Superfake? | 141
2763
Is your child a little unusual? Do they possess supernatural traits? How about super abilities? If you answered yes to some or all of these – chances are you have an indigo child! Indigo children, identified by their trademark indigo aura and at least one parent who identifies as “gypsy” (we might have made that part up), are potentially the next stage of human evolution. OR, the label could just be an attempt to ignore a much larger elephant in the room (I wonder what color aura elephants have). Either way we put on our indigo colored glasses and get to the bottom of it this week. Plus, we learn of Brent’s extreme disdain for the Indigo Girls, the fellas discuss what super power we would have given our 10 year-old selves, and we might just make it through an episode without singing (tune in to find out). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never been diagnosed as indigo children…or fans of the indigo girls - Hysteria 51 Support the show: https://www.patreon.com/Hysteria51 See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The Various Types of Hauntings: 99 Problems and a Slimer isn’t One | 140
3605
“Carol Anne! Stop spitting green pea soup, the call is coming from inside the house!” Wait, we might be conflating a few things there, but you get the idea…there are (allegedly) a LOT of potential hauntings out there. How is one to keep them all straight?!? Well, thanks to your friendly, neighborhood Hysteria 51 – you don’t have to…we’ll do the hard work for you (stop us when we start to sound like the Sham Wow guy). This week we explore the various types of ghouls, ghosts, spirits, and demons that are inhabiting your granny’s pantry (we won’t ask). Plus, we force Conspiracy Bot into a hard reboot (in the name of science), we learn C-Bot only catches fat cats (and no that isn’t a metaphor), and Goforth goes off about the movie Noah (we don’t know either). All of that and more on the podcast that hasn’t seen every type of spirit out there, but we’ve tried most of them – Hysteria 51.

Stanton T. Friedman: A Tribute to a UFOlogy Pioneer | 139
3109
Stanton Friedman was a nuclear physicist and professional UFOlogist. But he was more than that...he was involved in some of the largest stories and controversies in UFOlogy. We wouldn’t have the story of Roswell or the Majestic 12 without him. And while he certainly was controversial, no one can argue the indelible impact he had on UFOlogy and the world. This week we look at the life and impact of Stanton T Friedman. Plus, Conspiracy Bot finds a streak of kindness (it won’t last), the fellas go dark quick (no surprise there), we learn of GorGok the Protector of All Thing Magic (he lives in the mountains), and we’re all treated to a rousing rendition of Banditos (and no- Roger Clyne nor the Refreshments are on the show). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t do many tribute shows, but when we do, it’s for guys like Stanton – Hysteria 51.

The UFO People: A Curious Culture w/ MJ Banias | 138
2729
We are haunted by UFOs. They drift in and out of our culture in movies and on television, on billboards and in books. They are everywhere. However, for one small community, they are much more than the fodder of science fiction storytelling - they alter the entire fabric of reality. Enter The UFO People. Part narrative journey and part cultural study, The UFO People is a challenge to the UFO subculture and the broader public to recognize that UFOs, and the people who study them, challenge societal norms, institutions, and the many ideologies we assume to be true. This week we interview the author of The UFO People – MJ Banias. Plus, Conspiracy Bot finds a mentor in Napoleon, takes a trip to Fermilab, and makes John disappear (busy week). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never written a book about UFOs, but we’ve certainly had the book thrown at us – Hysteria 51.

Yellowstone Supervolcano: America’s Sleeping Killer | 137
3672
Ah, the majesty of Yellowstone National Park. Hot springs, gushing geysers, majestic wildlife, a supervolcano that could kill us all. That’s right, under all of the beauty and wonder is Yellowstone’s supervolcano that by some estimates is overdue to blow. What would happen if the volcano did pop? Mass extinctions? Check. Potentially the end of the U.S. as we know it? Check. A global famine accompanied by a decade long winter? Check. Could this actually be a planet killer – ending life as we know it on the planet? Maybe not the entire planet, but it could certainly change the course of humanity. So, will it go off soon? Is there anything we can do about it? And strangely enough, would there be a way to turn this whole thing into an advantage? We grab our helmets and go investigating this existential risk this week. Plus, Conspiracy Bot roots for the volcano (no surprise there), John questions the scientific viability of a Chinese sci-fi movie (we don’t know why either), and the fellas explore what we could do with a mini black hole right here in the lower 4th (spoiler – they’d sell tickets). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never faced an extinction level event, but if we did we’d want Billy Bob Thornton to deliver the news – Hysteria 51.

Alien Experiencers: An Interview with Experience Archivist NK Kranda | 136
2895
Does every abduction involve a probing? Do all the folks that have close encounters build mashed potato mountains first? Are these things really so huge, they’re bigger than a Walmart? We ask the tough questions this week as we interview Experiencer expert and MUFON Archivist NK Kranda. Plus, Brent decides he wants a pet Yeti (no surprise there). We draw comparisons between Conspiracy Bot and Florida Man (there are many). And everyone is relieved to realize he’ll never go down there (too many bodies of water).

The Fermi Paradox: Where are the Aliens? w/ Josh Clark from Stuff You Should Know | 135
4309
According to the Drake Equation there are approximately 40 bajillion habitable planets in our galaxy. Ok, the number is a little lower (and a little more specific than that), but the point remains the same...with all of these planets capable of sustaining life, why isn’t the galaxy just teeming with extra-terrestrials? Or, put more succinctly- where the heck are all the aliens? Enrico Fermi posed this question to some scientist friends at a lunch in 1950 and it’s been known as the “Fermi Paradox” ever since. We dive in this week but we don’t go exploring alone as we enlist of the help of Stuff You Should Know co-host, Josh Clark. Plus, Conspiracy Bot actually helps the show by recruiting Josh (surprising), by recruiting we actually mean kidnapping (less surprising), and yes he used poison (there it is). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never proven the existence of aliens, but how else would you explain Giorgio Tsoukalos' hair – Hysteria 51.

The Man From Taured: The Traveler Whose Country Didn’t Exist | 134
3167
Ever been to Taured this time of year? It’s fabulous!! No, you haven’t? In fact you haven’t heard of it? Well, neither had the rest of the world when in July of 1954 a man in a suit shows up at a Japanese airport claiming to not only hail from the (imminently non- existent country), but produces a legit passport. Did this man unknowingly slip into a parallel dimension? Did he time travel? Or is he and/or the story absolutely full of it? This week we report, you decide on The Man From Taured. Plus, the fellas learn why we should never let Conspiracy Bot travel to parallel dimensions (could be bad), speaking of - the guys talk about the potential return of Sliders (could be good), and Conspiracy Bot again learns he is powered by Dilithium Crystals (thankfully not true). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never slid into another dimension, but we did love us some Jonathan Reese Davies on Sliders – Hysteria 51.

The Mary Celeste | 133

Imagine this: You and your crew are traversing the Atlantic aboard your merchant ship. You spot something up ahead and grab the spyglass. Is that another ship? You call to the ship announcing your presence…no response. Is there no one aboard? Where’s the crew? You board the ship and things are silent. It’s too quiet. Something isn’t sitting right about this situation. There’s a sewing machine with a baby’s dress being sewn…the hem is still mid-stitch. The log book’s last entry? 10 days ago. Where did the crew go? What would cause them to abandon ship so abruptly without any signs of duress? Did they leave the ship willingly? What happened to the Mary Celeste – we investigate this week. Plus, David Flora of Blurry Photos Podcast makes his triumphant return once again. Conspiracy Bot pivots his game plan for Bot Booze. Brent circles back around on how C-Bot is paying for it. And we all learn that poisonous, bad-tasting, and foul-smelling are table stakes for any product the robot creates. All of that and more on the podcast that’s never discovered a ghost ship, but took a Carnival Cruise once that was almost as scary – Hysteria 51.

The Green Children of Woolpit: Multidimensional Travelers or Broccoli Addicts? | 132
2921
Picture this - you’re working in a field and quite suddenly 2 children appear out of seemingly nowhere. These kids not only don’t speak a language you’ve ever heard, but they’re skin is...GREEN. This might sound like the beginning of an episode of Black Mirror, but it isn’t. It’s an alleged real-life incident from 12th century England. Who were these kids? Where did they come from? Is this the first written proof of multidimensional travel or the first written proof of a broccoli overdose? This week we jump back over the pond and look into the curious case of the Green Children from Woolpit. Plus, Conspiracy Bot gets subpoenaed for the first time (really, that's the first time?). Brent could be facing jail time for the first time (again, we're surprised). And Bot Booze could finally be coming to an end (finally!).

Spring Heeled Jack – England’s Weirdest Paranormal Legend | 131
4219
This week we hop BACK over the pond to merry ol’ England to tackle a most vile and sinister serial…slapper? Well – slapper, groper, fire belcher, carriage crasher, and more. This week we’re looking into the legend of Spring Heeled Jack. This mischievous prankster allegedly had metal claws, could leap over 10 ft. walls, breath blue fire, apparently loved to slap authority figures, and cause carriages to crash. But who was this British bouncer? Is this just a folk tale re-told over the years to explain away hundreds of different events, was there a person of extraordinary ability terrorizing the countryside, or were these just a series of glorified fraternity pranks? David Flora of the Blurry Photos podcast joins the fun to help us uncover the identity of Britain’s strangest urban legend. Plus, Conspiracy Bot tries to get rid of Flora (he’s protective of BRENT’S beer), the fellas all try their hands at a British accent and fail miserably (shocking), and a related ghost in Long Island sounds eerily similar to Keanu Reeves (whoa). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never terrified women by blowing fire into their face, we do it the old fashioned way, by letting them see our work ethic and bank account – Hysteria 51.

The Pascagoula Abduction: A Controversial Close Encounter | 130
3324
There’s nothing like fishing in the evening with a friend. The only sounds disturbing your peaceful respite are the gentle trickles of water, the rhythmic chirping of crickets, and the loud whirring of an alien aircraft that’s come to abduct you. OK, that last one might be unique to this story. The Pascagoula Abduction was a close encounter of the 4th kind in Mississippi in the early 70’s. Out on a fishing trip, 2 men where minding their own business when a UFO flew down and the inhabitants abducted the men. The aliens were said to have elephant-like skin and lobster-claws for hands. And while this sounds a bit far-fetched, even a polygraph was passed. They were even hypnotized to get the truth. The hypnotist’s conclusion? The fishermen “experienced an extraterrestrial phenomena”. This week we’re cooking up some mashed potatoes and diving into this close encounter. Plus, why is Conspiracy Bot hiring the Polish figure skating team (it’s a long story)? We learn Dick Cheney is actually a robot (we can’t prove this, but no one would be surprised). And Rob Kristoffersen, host of the Our Strange Skies joins us in the lower 4th to talk alien elephants.

Interstellar travel, rewriting human genetics, body hacking, limitless clean energy...is this our future? What will humanity look like in 100 years (assuming the Yellowstone Caldera doesn’t take us all out)? If technology continues to progress anywhere near the pace of the last few decades, not only will we have people on Mars, we’ll be in the middle of terraforming it. Or, will our future have a distinctly dystopian pallor? We take a look ahead this week with Ben Bowlin and Matt Frederick from the OG conspiracy podcast, Stuff They Don’t Want You To Know. Plus, could the future of humanity hinge on this very podcast? (no) Conspiracy Bot has the fix for quantum computers (defrag). And we all have some “tea, Earl Grey, hot”.

Black Project Aircraft – America’s UFOs | 128
4018
Not EVERY UFO can be an aliens (we know Giorgio, shocking). These unknown aircraft aren’t always “unidentified” to everyone. Some of them come from a little closer to home – the good ol’ U.S. of A. The U.S. Government has confirmed the existence of Black Project Aircraft. These are experimental and developmental planes, drones, and more that are highly classified and not publicly acknowledged by the government or its contractors. These technologies are known to range from invisibility, experimental propulsion systems, advanced weaponry and more (that’s the whole classified / black project part). To help uncover the truth this week we’ve enlisted the help of Black Project Aircraft expert and author of the Wingman book series, Mack Maloney. Plus, Conspiracy Bot decides he’s going to help (for once) produce the show (he doesn’t), he also makes some pretty harsh allegations involving Tom DeLonge (and a ham sandwich), and Brent threatens Conspiracy Bot with a bath (this might all be related).

Jack Parsons is the subject of this week’s show. Jack was one of the principal founders of both the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and the Aerojet Engineering Corporation. He invented the first rocket engine to use a castable, composite rocket propellant, and pioneered the advancement of both liquid-fuel and solid-fuel rockets. Oh, and he also summoned the devil, was besties with Aleister Crowley, and practiced magick. You know, normal rocket scientist stuff. This week we dive into the life and times of Jack Parsons. Plus, Conspiracy Bot actually succeeds on Shark Tank (really Mr. Wonderful?), in unrelated news he now has a jingle for his Bot Booze (it’s stolen), and Dan Kozuh of TheHardTimes.net makes a return visit to the Lower 4th to talk his new book Lingeria (we’re as surprised as you are).

Jonestown - The Murder | 126
4804
Cult leader Jim Jones used a dangerous mix of lies, abuse, and manipulation to control the members of his People’s Temple. The hold he had over his cult was so severe he convinced the members to move into the middle of the jungles of Guyana, AKA Jonestown. But, as the events unraveled so too did Jones. Failing health and a drug addiction fueled his craziness and led to a US Congressman flying to Guyana to see things for himself. The ensuing events led to the tragic murder of the Congressman and much of his party, then culminated in in the deaths of over 900 people at Jonestown…over a 3rd of which were kids. Jones convinced his followers to drink Flavor-Aid laced with Cyanide. Some drank of their own volition, some were forced, while many (including children) were injected. How does a diverse church group who set out to build a paradise on Earth, a Utopian society free from racism and hatred, end up unleashing hell on Earth that culminated in one of the greatest crimes in our modern times? We dive in deep this week. Plus, Conspiracy has decided he’s going to be on Shark Tank, in an unrelated note he also decides he need to go to the aquarium, and finally Pecker, Kevin, and Chris Marcum all take a trip back to the lower 4th to finish this crazy topic.

Jonestown - The Monster | 125
4505
Don’t drink the Kool-Aid. We’ve all heard it, heck most of us have said it. An anachronism from the 80's that has come to simply mean to not completely buy into an idea whether good or bad. But the roots of the phrase are so much more severe…so much more frightening. Whether it be by their own hand or forcibly – these poor souls died in the steaming jungles of Jonestown, Guyana at the order of their leader. A maniacal, drug addicted cult leader named Jim Jones. In this first of two episodes we explore the man responsible. How could one man hold that much power over his followers? What would compel a man to ask almost 1,000 people to lay down their lives? Are monsters born monsters or do they turn into them? We dive into all of those light questions this week. Plus, Conspiracy Bot grows his business as people are actually buying his product (we don’t know who), Joe Peck is back on the show for the 2nd week in a row (we don’t know how), and Kevin Crispin makes his triumphant return with special guest Chris Marcum (we don’t know why).

Alex Jones: Conspiracy’s Con Man | 124
5547
What’s the best way to sell erectile dysfunction pills? Claim 9/11 was an inside job! Well, at least that’s the tact that Alex Jones takes. Jones and his InfoWars network have been consistently putting out looney tunes conspiracy theories for two decades. But they aren’t just talking reptilians and new world order. Jones has taken it to the next level; from accusing Sandy Hook shooting victims of being crisis actors to propagating the famous #pizzagate hoax. Jones has built an empire on lies and the pain of others. This week we bring on the guys from Knowledge Fight to look into this grifter. Is he a true believing nut job, or a confidence man just trying to hawk his various snake oils? Plus, Wesley Willis makes an appearance on the show (bonus points if you know who that is), Conspiracy Bot releases his own line of booze (rubbing alcohol anyone?), and speaking of 90’s technology (looking at you C-Bot) the fellas talk Win-Amp. All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t turn the freakin’ frogs gay, but does have a favorite song about frogs (looking at you Wesley Willis) – Hysteria 51.

The Kardashev Scale | 123
3786
How advanced is our civilization? Hot Pockets? Check. Cat memes? Check. Total control of our planet’s resources, weather, and energy? Well…we’ll get back to you. That’s the basic premise of the Kardashev Scale. It’s a simple test to judge a civilization’s technological advancement. The scale ranges from 0 (we’re a 0.7) to a 6 or 7 (think omnipotent beings). This week we explore where we are, where we’re (hopefully) going, and how we can get there. Plus, Conspiracy Bot gives himself an upgrade to SUPER C (he’s been playing too much NES), the neighborhood cats are back in his cross-hairs (he drank a bottle of Malört), and we talk how Pluto has gotten the shaft (#teamPluto). All of that and more on the podcast that didn’t know you in high school, but if we had we would have beat up any other podcasts that made fun of your Magic the Gathering collection – Hysteria 51.

Nuclear Boy Scout: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Build a Nuclear Reactor | 122
3698
Teenagers nowadays. No respect for their elders. I mean, as teens in our day we were walking uphill (both ways) to school in the snow. We didn’t have cellphones, we had pagers. If we needed a nuclear reactor, we built it in our backyard! Well, not all of us – but this week’s subject certainly tried. David Hahn was just another suburban kid, up until he MacGyver’d up a breeder reactor in his mom’s shed using not much more than a bunch of smoke detectors and old clocks. This week we dive into the how, where, and why of David Hahn – affectionately known as the Nuclear Boy Scout. Plus, we learn why Conspiracy Bot has a thing for Wheel of Fortune (hint: it’s the repartee), we learn how many smoke detectors you can buy without raising an eyebrow (hint: it’s a lot), and for some reason C-Bot actually helped with this week’s show (hint: it involves homemade nuclear power). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never built a nuclear reactor, but that definitely reacts nuclearly (is that a word?) on occasion – Hysteria 51.

Dulce Underground Base: Alien Base or Absolute BS? | 121
3570
Dulce, New Mexico: population 2,743…ABOVE GROUND! That’s right, according to some there is a secret base under Dulce that houses everything from classified US technology to reptilians. According to those same folks Dulce is one of the many underground facilities that Reptilians use to run experiments on humans. Oh, and there was a huge underground battle there between aliens and the US military. The aliens managed to win because they had advanced ray guns. And from there….the story REALLY starts to get strange. This week we grab our tinfoil hats and go down the reptilian hole as we explore the Dulce Underground Base. Plus, Conspiracy Bot stays sober long enough to do some writing (surprisingly true), we learn there is a Starbucks on Venus that employed Conspiracy Bot (not true at all), and Kevin Crispin is back in the lower 4th (fun and true)!

Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers- An Interview With Jeremy Corbell | 120
4183
Bob Lazar is on the Mount Rushmore of names in the UFO world. He (virtually on his own) brought the existence of Area 51 to the forefront by telling his story of working on real UFOs in the 80's. If a podcast, website, or movie is covering UFOs they can’t do a complete job without mentioning Bob. The challenge is he pretty much STOPPED talking to the press and giving interviews for more than 20 years. Then, came along documentarian Jeremy Corbell. He has produced a new documentary on Lazar with his FULL cooperation. This week we interview Jeremy about his experiences, if and why he believes the story, and a whole lot more. Plus, we somehow work John Lear into the discussion (you’ll see), Conspiracy Bot compares himself to Dr. Phil (he’s more like Judge Judy), and :spoiler alert: Mickey Rourke doesn’t join the show (C-Bot was disappointed). All of that and more on the podcast that isn’t on the Mount Rushmore of podcasts, but is on the Mount Rushmore of Mount Rushmores (in our own mind) – Hysteria 51.

Antikythera Mechanism – The World’s First Computer? | 119
3665
Imagine finding shipwreck from thousands of years ago and among the rest of the debris finding a laptop with instructions on how to use it. That’s ALMOST exactly what happened when the Antikythera Mechanism was found. OK, so it wasn’t exactly a laptop, but many refer to it as the world’s first analog computer. And no matter how you classify it, it certainly doesn’t fit the time frame it dates back to. How did the ancient Greeks create a machine so advanced that another example of its intricacies wouldn’t be found in the world for another century and a half? We attempt to get to the bottom of it or at least blame the aliens this week. Plus, the fellas talk about THEIR first computer, we’re able to compare the mechanism to both a magic 8-ball and Grays Sports Almanac, and Conspiracy Bot quotes bad 90’s music.

2018 Year-End Review and Orson Welles - Dracula | 118

Man, 2018 flew by fast. And what a crazy year it was for all of us at Hysteria 51. New network, award nominations, iTunes top 200, the list goes on. We could not have done it without all of you, so this week Producer Lisa and Brent take a look back at the year. They talk achievements, (holy crap there was actually more than 1), how much prettier Lisa is than John (duh), our war with LeVar Burton (only in our heads), and what 2019 has in store for the show. Oh, but it doesn't end there. Then you are treated to our tradition of our favorite Audio Drama of the Year. This time around it is a mouthful with The Mercury Theater on the Air, with Orson Welles presents – “Dracula”. So break out the garlic and sharpen some sticks for this year-end review on the podcast that isn't hosted by Vampires because we don't need a reason to suck even more, Hysteria 51. Dracula Adapted from the novel by Bram Stoker Cast: Orson Welles (Dr. John Seward, Count Dracula) Elizabeth Fuller (Lucy Westenra) George Coulouris (Jonathan Harker) Agnes Moorehead (Mina Harker) Martin Gabel (Dr. Van Helsing) Ray Collins (Russian Captain) Karl Swenson (Mate) Support the show: https://www.patreon.com/Hysteria51 See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Nazca Lines – Peruvian Artwork or Alien Runways? | 117
4157
The Nazca Lines are a group of ancient geoglyphs etched into desert sands of southern Peru. Made up of of over 10,000 lines, the figures are most visible from the air or nearby hilltops. The designs range from geometric patterns to animals and more. Why would an ancient culture spend the time and effort to etch out such elaborate and large designs? Is it simply an ancient artform? Were they an homage to the god(s) of the time? Or, were they an invitation…even a guide to a group viewing from the stars? We grab our brooms and dust off the Nazca Lines this week. Plus, the fellas talk about their favorite childhood art toys (Mainway’s Bag o’ Glass makes an appearance). Conspiracy Bot learns about yellow snow. And the merits of giving soldering irons to children is debated (it’s a good idea). All of that and more on the podcast that that’s never carved ornate messages into the earth for aliens, but we have written plenty of messages in snow…yellow snow - Hysteria 51.

UFOs at Maury Island: MiB, JFK, and Dog Murder | 116
4547
In the wild world of UFOs it doesn’t take much for a story to take on a life of its own. A flash in the sky or a shadow turns into a close encounter. But sometimes they have a little more meat to them… dog meat. Along with one of the first known run-ins with the infamous Men In Black, the death of 2 investigators, and even a potential link to the JFK assassination. But why would a tale wilder than Roswell be nothing more than a footnote on a few UFO websites? Is it simply an elaborate hoax? Or are there larger forces at play that have been able to keep the truth from getting anywhere close to the surface? We head to Washington state and try to get to the middle of this UFO donut this week. Plus, Conspiracy Bot claims to have fans, the fellas learn what its like to wake up with no memories in Montana while waiting tables (again), and a blast from the past as Mark Frushour is back in the lower 4th after almost 100 episodes!

Magic: Hocus Pocus or Bona Fide Sorcery? | 115

The dictionary defines magic as the power to influence the course of events by using mysterious or supernatural forces. Not David Blaine pretending to float, not the recovering alcoholic at your kid’s birthday party pulling a rabbit out of a hat – real honest-to-goodness MAGIC... or MAGIK... or MAGICK... however you want to spell it. And while we see examples of it all the time in fictional pop culture (looking at you Harry Potter), the question persists: is MAGIC real? This week we study the history, look at some examples, and pull the answer out of…somewhere. Plus, Conspiracy Bot threatens Brent’s new dog, the fellas discuss their favorite fictional magic users, and C-Bot learns what “hair of the dog” means.

Tarot and Clairvoyance: Magic or Mischief? | 114

Ever had your palm read? Maybe a tarot reading? Wonder if it was anything more than paying $20 bucks for a lady with a headdress to look into a hunk of glass and tell you what you want to hear? Us too. That’s why we decided to call in some experts. This week not only do we look at the history and research surrounding clairvoyance and tarot, but we bring in a clairvoyant and a tarot reader! Will John have success in his career? How will the new dog turn out for Brent? Can you even read an angry robot? We ask the tough questions this week. Plus, Conspiracy Bot can’t figure out why he can’t book Miss Cleo as a guest for the show (hint: she’s dead). In completely unrelated news he tries his hand (pincers) at being a 900-number clairvoyant (hint: he fails and we have the tape). And the fellas find out some intriguing information about the future of the show (we’re hoping it involves the lottery). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t have psychic powers we’re aware of, but if we did, we’d probably just use them with our bookie – Hysteria 51.

Everyone jokes about Facebook and Google taking over the country. But what if the most powerful corporations in America REALLY did organize a coup and turn the USA into a fascist dictatorship? Believe it or not, it almost happened in the 1930’s! That’s this week’s topic, The Business Plot. It might have a boring name, but the story itself is anything but. Huge American corporations attempting to organize hundreds of thousands former military to march on Washington and kick FDR out of office. And they would have gotten away with it too if it weren’t for those darn kids. Well, actually 1 kid. And actually, it was an adult war-hero named Smedley Butler. This bad mama jama won the Medal of Honor…twice (and tried to give it back both times because what he did was “no big deal”). This week we grab a pegboard and some string to try and put together the pieces of the Business Plot. Plus, the fellas discuss the merits of government cheese, Conspiracy Bot starts referring to himself as “daddy”, and we learn the robot has a penchant for Wheat Thins (who knew). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never put together a plot to overthrow the government, but we know a certain robot that’s thinking about it - Hysteria 51.

When you were younger, didn’t you think the Bermuda Triangle was going to have a much greater impact on your life than it has? We sure did. The triangular patch of the Northern Atlantic near the Caribbean has been the subject of countless books, movies, and TV specials. But what’s so scary about the Bermuda Triangle? Is it literally swallowing craft almost as quickly as we can send them through, or is this just an urban legend that grew larger than most? We hop in our life boats and get to the bottom of the Bermuda Triangle this week. Plus, Conspiracy Bot throws kids’ snow cones on the ground. He also knocks over old people. And somehow all of this is tied to a leptospirosis scare (that he invented). Oh, and Kevin is back in the lower 4th.

Starlite: The Lost Invention That Could Have Changed The World | 111
3898
Imagine a material that will not burn. Not with a lighter, not with a laser, not with a nuclear device. This material could be heated to temperatures hotter than the surface of the sun, and be no worse for the wear. No, we aren’t talking about the fridge from Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. We’re talking about Starlite – a material claimed to be invented…by a hairdresser from Suffolk, England. A material tested by NASA. A material coveted by Boeing. A material whose recipe died with its creator. How did this eccentric hobbyist inventor create a potentially WORLD CHANGING polymer and why wouldn’t he share it? Did it actually even exist or is this some sort of elaborate hoax? Or, was it not only real, but so effective that a less-than-scrupulous corporation or government agency stole it for their needs? This week we look to the heavens and reach for the Starlite. Plus, the boys talk Fred MacMurray (he was hot), we all thank our lucky stars that Conspiracy Bot IS combustible (he can get hot), and Kevin Crispin makes his long-awaited return to the lower 4th (he gets hot flashes).

Could our extra-terrestrial friends be implanting humans with advanced machinery that might look innocuous, but serves a much higher purpose? And if so, what is that purpose? Biotelemetry? Remote Viewing? MIND CONTROL? This week we grab our bug trackers and go on the hunt. Plus, Conspiracy Bot has a new implant of his own, Brent tells us more about when he was missing time, and C-Bot refers to human ears as “idiot wings” (we don’t know either).

Plus, which Ninja Turtle is the best?(Hint: It’s Michelangelo) If you dress up as a He-Man character and no one notices - did it really happen?

The Warrens: Heroes or Hucksters? | 108

Ed and Lorraine Warren are arguably the most famous paranormal investigators of the last century. The married couple investigated countless hauntings, possessions, and demon infestations. Many of which have become Hollywood fodder inspiring movies like The Conjuring and Annabelle. But away from the glitz and glamour, were the Warrens for real? Are these divisive investigators true spiritual detectives, fighting the good fight for those of us too blind to the truth to see? Or did they make a career out of the gullibility and trust of countless tortured souls. We dive headfirst into the protoplasm and investigate the Warrens this week. Plus, Conspiracy Bot learns the difference between right and wrong, in related news he exclusively chooses wrong, and we learn the price of his soul (it’s beer). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never seen a demon, but that doesn’t mean we wouldn’t want to keep Constantine around just in case – Hysteria 51.

The Rendlesham Forest UFO Incident: Britain's Roswell | 107
5739
Jolly ol’ England: the home of Monty Python, Big Ben, and the one of the most infamous UFO incidents in recorded history. Wait, what was that last part again? The Rendlesham Forest Incident, as it’s come to be known, was a series of close encounters in Suffolk, England over the course of 3 nights just after Christmas in 1980. From darting lights in the sky, to missing time, and an even alleged encounter with an alien craft – the Rendlesham Forest Incident has been permeated the UFO world for over 35 years. But what really happened next to the American airbase? Did that many American airmen witness a true encounter with an extra-terrestrial craft? Could it be a case of mass hysteria (see what I did there)? Was something larger at play and this is merely the cover-up? We pull up our knickers and go ufology-ing (we might have made that word up)…Plus, the fellas discuss the best Monty Python movies (of course), Conspiracy Bot picks his based on its inappropriateness (of course), and we find a way to work in The Lumberjack Song (of course).

Unidentified Submerged Objects: The UFOs of the Sea | 106
3996
We all know what a UFO is, but what’s a USO? Well it’s like a UFO but in the water. That’s right we’re talking Unidentified SUBMERGED Objects. And, while we know most of them are just the Cthulhu or your run-of-the-mill Krakken, some aren’t. Could these sightings from all over the globe be proof that in our search for Aliens we’ve been looking to the stars, but should have had our eyes on the seas? This week we grab our sextant and investigate what’s REALLY UNDER THE SEA. Plus, Conspiracy Bot is in an even worse mood than normal (we didn’t think that was possible either). Betty White makes an R-rated appearance on the show (Lake Placid is a great movie). And Conspiracy Bot is outsmarted by a kitten (we knew that was possible). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never seen a USO, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to go looking now - Hysteria 51.

Georgia Guide Stones: Modern Day Mystery | 105
5581
We don’t often think of mysterious relics as something from our current era. Unexplained monolithic structures with debated meaning and even less certain purpose don’t just pop-up in small town America. But they did. There is a set of modern day relics right in front of our noses. Not hidden away is a long abandoned cave, no. Out there for everyone to see in a cow pasture in northeast Georgia. The Georgia Guidestones are modern day relic – offering advice, and some would say hope, to future generations. Other read them in a much darker and foreboding light. Not advice on how to make humanity better, but doctrine with only the most perverse intentions. Who really built the Guidestones? What is their true purpose? And how are aliens involved. We offer GUIDANCE this week. Plus, we’re all shocked to learn Conspiracy Bot is a big fan of Thanos (no one was shocked), C-Bot then explains why he ISN’T an alcoholic (he is), and Pecker somehow ties Infinity War to the Simpsons (not well). All of that and more on the podcast that already knows who built the Georgia Guidestones and his name is Thanos - Hysteria 51.

Robert Smalls: The Civil War's Most Incredible Untold Story | 104
2990
Imagine this for a potential movie: Guy is born into slavery. Escapes his bonds by stealing the ship he’s a slave on and delivering it to the Union (it’s the Civil War). He goes onto captain the very boat he was a slave on, buy the house he was slave in, and eventually be elected to Congress. And that isn’t even half the story. While it isn’t a movie, it is the story of Robert Smalls and it’s so incredible we cover it this week. Plus, Joe Peck somehow figures out how to make an appearance without actually being on the show, C-Bot gets a kill-switch, and Lincoln joins the show (the President...not John’s son). All of that and more on the podcast never captained a ship, but we imagine it would be less Robert Smalls and more Gilbert and Sullivan - Hysteria 51.

Göbekli Tepe is an archaeological site full of mysterious monoliths and intricate carvings in Southeast Turkey that shouldn’t exist. Prehistoric hunter-gatherers COULDN’T build these massive structures, cut and transport these enormous stones, and carve these intricate reliefs with their primitive skill set and tools. Yet they did… Who had the know how to build this awesome set of structures? Did we receive help? This week we talk Turkey and try to understand the mysteries of Göbekli Tepe. Plus, Conspiracy Bot claims to be omnipotent (he’s not), Brent threatens to test that theory (he might), and we invent a new podcast all about dating organic matter using radio isotopes (it doesn’t go very far).

Artificial Intelligence: How Frightened Should We Be? | 102
3962
Computers are getting smarter by the day. Soon enough they’ll become self aware and kill us all (for one reason or another). That’s the narrative we’ve all learned from fiction and pop culture over the years, but is it true? Will Artificial Intelligence evolve to a point our puny human minds can’t comprehend? AND if so, will their first act as sentient beings be to wipe us off the face of the planet? This week we open the pod bay doors and dive deep into A.I. Plus, Conspiracy Bot and Alexa have an existential conversation about self awareness (it doesn’t go far). The fellas talk their favorite Kevin Smith flicks (Tusk is not the right answer). And C-Bot is reminded he just might not be the most advanced cybernetic organism out there (which comes as a shock to no one but the toaster). All of that and more on the podcast that knows artificial intelligence is already here (it just isn’t Conspiracy Bot) – Hysteria 51. Huge thanks to Sam Kulper of Breakers Podcast for joining us this week.

Skinwalker Ranch: The Science of the Paranormal | 101
3917
By now we all know the story of Skinwalker Ranch (especially if you listened to last week's episode). It's a tale as old as time: Boy meets girl. Boy and girl buy a cattle ranch. Boy and girl's dogs are turned to goo, Bigfoot visits, UFOs make a regular appearance, and ghost sightings galore. You know, that old chestnut. Well, this week we dive into the science behind it. Why would a billionaire who builds rockets buy the ranch? Who is NIDS and why were they the group to investigate the it? What has ACTUALLY been scientifically proven at this strange site? We grab our P.K.E. meters and surveillance gear as we aim to find out. Plus, the nefarious reason Conspiracy Bot bought a Pet Cemetary ("ground's sour"). Why Ja Rule is THE choice to have with you when things get weird. And Conspiracy Bot thinks Rosie from the Jetsons is a tramp (don't ask).

Why would a billionaire buy the ranch? We saddle up and go in search of the truth this week. Plus, we take a fond look back at our first episode, hear what Conspiracy Bot used to sound like, and re-address the altimeter situation.

In this special episode of H51 we go FULL ON INTERVIEW! We have an upcoming episode on AI and wanted to interview someone. Who better than a writer/producer with over 30 years in the industry who just did a series on AI? Oh, and did we mention he created a little show called MACGYVER?!?! That’s right, this week we talk to Lee Zlotoff – the creator of Macgyver. Lee tells us about his new series on AI, Our Own Devices. He gives us his thoughts on where AI is headed. Then we spend an inordinate amount of time asking him about Macgyver because we’re geeks like that. So, instead of including the interview in the more comprehensive AI episode, we decided to release this in its entirety. Now grab a paperclip, some fishing wire, and an avocado and join us for a fun precursor to our AI episode on the podcast that doesn’t ALWAYS do good interviews, but when we do we have no idea what to do with them - Hysteria 51.

Phantom Time Theory: Is It Really the Middle Ages? | 98
2720
There are classic debates in the world of the weird. Does Bigfoot exist? Have aliens visited the earth? Did 300 years of our collective history never happen? What, whaa? That's what believers of the Phantom Time Theory think. The theory goes that a couple of emperors and a pope fabricated 300 years of the early Middle Ages. But, if true, why would they do such a thing? Could they have really invented Charlemagne? Does this mean we don't have air-conditioning again? This week we go in search of 3 missing centuries. Plus, how could there be an episode involving Phantom Time without a Ben Affleck reference (there couldn't)? John gets the drop on C-Bot with a drop (it'll make sense). And Brent tries to teach John a thing or two in this blind topic episode.

Cicada 3301: The Internet's Most Mysterious Puzzle | 97
4503
“Hello. We are looking for highly intelligent individuals. To find them we have devised a test...” Thus began the phenomenon that is Cicada 3301. At its core, Cicada 3301 is an anonymous group that released to the world a series of internet based puzzles, some of which still have no known solution. From ciphers hidden in books, to actual posters players had to track down across the globe – no one has come forward to claim the enigmatic set of mysteries. But what (or who) is really behind it? Is this just the work of a like-minded cyber punks with too much time on their hands? Is it an anonymous organization of data security and cryptography experts bent on changing the way the internet operates? Or, is it a black ops recruitment project for the CIA? We bust out our encryption keys this week and go hunting. Plus, Conspiracy Bot is a fan of Socrates (think Hemlock). Joe Peck is back and confused by Scooby Doo (think disguises). And our John G makes the connection that the bad guy in Memento is also John G (¯\_(ツ)_/¯).

Deep State: Shadow Government or Political Buzzword? | 96
3526
Who's in charge of the United States? POTUS? Ha! That's a temporary employee. Congress? Please...merely figureheads. The real people pulling the strings are a clandestine network entrenched inside the government, bureaucracy, intelligence agencies, and other governmental entities. Or, at least that's the claim. But is it true? Are we all just merely sheep meandering through a world that is mostly a lie? Or, is this concept merely a touchstone for ideologues and pundits to further their conspiratorial agendas? We're joined by Brandon Marsh, co creator of X-Files: Deep State to help sort through the clutter. We take a look at the game as well - talking not only about how this concept has driven the X-Files franchise, but also how it could be at play today. Plus, Conspiracy Bot claims to be long time friends of X-Files creator Chris Carter (he isn't). The fellas talk their favorite episodes and seasons. And watch out Alexa because C-Bot has his sights set on the narrator of the new X-Files Deep State. All of that and more on the podcast that isn’t sure about the existence of a deep state, but wonders if there are shadow governments – are they run by shadow people? – Hysteria 51.

John Titor: Time Traveler or Internet Troll? | 95
5186
If time travel is possible and future humans are coming back to our era...what would they want? To kill a future despot? To make a change to the environment that saves future generations? To take back a computer from 1975 to make their time machine work properly? If you're anything like the subject of this week's show, John Titor, you went with door #3. According to his posts on the internet, John Titor traveled back to the 70s to get a special computer to save time travel. He also made a pit stop along the way in the early 00's to live with his family (and 2 year old self) and presumably post snotty messages on inane internet forums (not stand-up forums like Hysteria Nation). Sound crazy? That's the most normal part of this story. This week we do our best Sam Beckett and try to fix what went wrong with the OG Chrononaut - John Titor. Plus, John and Brent ponder the existential perils of time travel (not really - just looking for ways to make money on it). Conspiracy bot ponders the existential perils of time travel (not really - just looking for other ways to kill John and Brent). And David Flora of Blurry Photos is back in the lower 4th (he just wants to time travel to a time before he met Conspiracy Bot).

Crystal Skulls: Mystical Marvels or Fake Fossils? | 94

There is a series of skulls across the globe that are made of solid quartz and are virtually identical to one another. Some legends say that the unification of the 13 original skulls will save the human race from the certain doom that is Y2K. Wait...that came and went. Anyway, you get the idea. Get the skulls together and they have some sort of mystical power. Others argue they are nothing more than modern-day fakes. Whatever the case, we can all agree they're a terrible basis for a movie (just going to leave that there and move on). Anyway, this week we dive into the history and mystery of the crystal skulls. What is their true origin? Are they evidence of an advanced ancient civilization? Could they contain the shared knowledge of the universe like a existential hard-drive? We go in search of the truth (or at least a good episode). Plus, Joe Peck is back to try his hand at being a Pueblo Spiritual Adviser. John won't let go of a bad joke. And Conspiracy Bot makes punch for everyone...especially Brent. All of that and more on the podcast that already owns numerous Crystal Skulls…filled with vodka and made by Dan Aykroyd – Hysteria 51.

In 1966 an unassuming pair of couples went joyriding in the hills of West Virginia. They just thought they were out to have some fun with some friends and escape their hometown of Point Pleasant for a while. They were wrong. The following series of events sparked a national phenomenon that is still alive today – the legend of the MOTHMAN. From the descriptions of red eyes and 10 foot wings to the sightings of a flying man outside the famed Sears Tower in Chicago – this cryptid has permeated the cultural zeitgeist for over 50 years. But what is it? Is there truly a winged beast flying around the world as the harbinger of doom? Or are these sightings a combination of mass hysteria, military exercises and really big birds? We grab our binoculars, camera, and Audubon society membership cards as we go in search of the Mothman this week. Plus, are all the Mothman sightings really just Batman? (no) Why is Conspiracy Bot making English Muffins? (we don't know). And how many times will Brent sing the Mothra song?

What did they actually accomplish? Do we have Manchurian Candidates running around the world right now? And when Congress dismantled the program in the 70's - did it truly stop or just go into hiding? This week we spike our own drink and avoid assassinating anyone as we go on a long strange trip into MK ULTRA.

CIA Operative - according to many involved - the man once responsible for 80% of all cocaine consumed in the U.S. in a given year, was being protected by and even funded by the CIA. This week we hear from Sam Kulper who had a chance to sit down with Escobar's brother Roberto, while in Columbia. How involved was the US Government? Was the king of all Narcos just a side effect of the Iran/Contra Affair? Could Sam stop staring at Roberto's missing eye? We ask the tough questions this week.

Heaven's Gate: The UFO Cult to End All UFO Cults | 86

What could compel 39 people from all walks of life to abandon their friends and family and commit suicide in a vain and rather crazy attempt to hop a ride on a UFO hiding behind the Hale-Bopp Comet in March of 1997? Well, the answer is stranger than you think...this week we look into the history, mystery, and ultimate tragedy of the Heaven's Gate cult. How did a Texas nurse and a college choral director with Broadway dreams become the leaders of the UFO Cult to end all UFO cults? And how did they convince so many unlikely people to join them? Were they really trying to transcend humanity or were they perfectly deranged bedfellows preying on the trust of their followers. This week we shave our heads, learn the handshakes and try to get to the bottom of the largest mass suicide to ever take place on American soil. Plus, Conspiracy Bot tries to start a cult with Alexa (he's unsuccessful), in unrelated news Conspiracy Bot also tries to order a 5 gallon drum of Sharkleberry Fin Kool-Aid (it's related), and also in unrelated news Conspiracy Bot offers to get drinks for the show (also actually related).

We then take a look at the book's crackpot author Bill Cooper, how he got to the place where he wrote the book, and what led to his being shot by authorities after allegedly proclaiming he would not be taken alive (his one prophecy that did turn out to be accurate). And here's the good news - after listening this week - you won't have to read the book! We do all the heavy lifting! We do these things because we care. Plus, we talk the conspiracy theorist we CAN get behind (Fox Mulder), we ponder the redemption status of Brent's "Book-It" stars (do those things expire?), and special guest Dr. Chris Cogswell of the Mad Scientist Podcast joins the show to help us break it all down. All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t often cover conspiracy theorists that literally believe in EVERYTHING, but when we do we wish it was Fox Mulder EVERY SINGLE TIME – Hysteria 51.

Numbers Stations: Spy Communication, Alien Radio Stations, or Something More Sinister? | 81
3502
Why are there nearly untraceable radio broadcasts all around the world of seemingly random number sequences? What is their true purpose and who is behind them? Are these vestiges of Cold War spy-craft? A simplistic way for modern day terrorists to communicate? Or simply the most bizarre way to communicate with aliens this side of “Out Of This World” (you realize that was Burt Reynolds)? This week we head that the local RadioShack, get a cipher pad, and get to work. Plus, Conspiracy Bot decides he’s going to win the lottery (he won’t). We talk bad morning FM radio (we hate shows with too many drops and worthless characters). And we question how good Cuba actually is at this whole espionage thing (but man are they good at the sandwich thing). All of that and more on the podcast that isn’t in the spy game, but if we were we’d probably be a lot less James Bond and a lot more Austin Powers – Hysteria 51.

Did Hitler Fake His Own Death? | 80
4242
Adolph Hitler and his new wife Eva Braun committed suicide on April 30th, 1945 as they cowered in a bunker under Berlin. The Russians were literally at the doorstep and the Americans just a few miles away. There was no way out...or was there? Theories abound that Hitler didn't die that day , but rather orchestrated an elaborate ruse to get out of Germany and escape to one of many locations; Argentina? Spain? Antarctica? The Hollow Earth? If they did escape, what did they do when they arrived? Attempt to blend in with their neighbors (imagine that name popping up on the new neighbor's mailbox) and go on to live an ordinary life. Or, surreptitiously attempt to accumulate wealth and support to bring about the rise of the 4th Reich. We dig up the Führerbunker and go Nazi hunting this week. Plus, we welcome Joe Peck back to the show with open arms, Conspiracy Bot is a delight to be around, and Brent doesn't spend an inordinate amount of time laughing at his own jokes.

The Phoenix Lights: Mass UFO Sighting or Mass Hysteria? | 79
4053
If one guy says he saw a UFO - it's easy to dismiss. But what do you do when over 10,000 people in one state say they did? That's exactly what happened March 13th, 1997 throughout Arizona. They all describe something very similar too: several lights arranged in a triangular pattern slowly moving overhead. Was it a visit from E.T.? A top secret military project? Or swamp gas bouncing off a weather balloon coupled with flares and whatever else they can come up with? The H-51 I-Team investigates this week with the help of David Flora from the Blurry Photos Podcast! That's right - a odd pod crossover event right here in the lower 4th dimension! Plus, Conspiracy Bot orders a vial of The Rock's sweat (it made sense to him). We learn more about Goforth in the 90's than we ever wanted to know (two words:frosted tips). And we discover the real reason the Titanic sank (it might involve a demon).

The Holy Grail: Holy Cup, Holy Bloodline, or Holy Hoax? | 78
3692
This week you've chosen WISELY as we go in search of the cup of a carpenter and try to find the HOLY GRAIL. Or is it Jesus' kids we're looking for? Or the cup with Jesus' blood? I don't know but somehow Joseph of Arimathea is involved...and maybe King Arthur too. Confused yet? So is literally everyone throughout history that went in search of the Holy Grail (except Monty Python of course - they knew what was up). We grab our whips and fedoras this week to get to the bottom of it. Plus, Conspiracy Bot decides he's the second coming of Christ (he's not), Nazis somehow make their way into the episode (hey, if it's a supposedly powerful artifact that might or might not exist and is likely lost to time - Hitler searched for it), and we, of course, talk air speed velocities of unladen swallows (African AND European).

Project Serpo: The Intergalactic Scientist Exchange Program | 77

We all looked at the foreign exchange student in high school and wondered what that would be like. Now picture doing that almost 40 light years away! Enter Project Serpo - the alleged top-secret exchange program between the United States government and an alien planet called Serpo in the Zeta Reticuli star system. We sent 12 of our bravest (most naive?) scientists to Serpo...and they didn’t all return. What happened to those that stayed? Why were we so scared of those that returned? And, for the LOVE OF GOD why don’t we know any of their names? Plus, is there a better intergalactic cab driver than Bruce Willis in the 5th Element (no)? Brent and Conspiracy Bot notice some unsettling similarities (it’s a surprise to no one but them). And we finally determine if a Wal-Mart is a good unit of measurement (it is).

This week on Hysteria 51 we talk for over an HOUR about a 600 year old book! Still with us? While that's technically true - there's SO MUCH MORE TO THE STORY. The Voynich Manuscript is written in a language no one can read! Is it a cipher? A dead language? A secret map? Written by aliens? All of the above? Who knows - BUT there have some been new developments in the last few months. We'll bust out our decoder rings this week and try to crack the code. Plus, Conspiracy Bot finds a new hobby (it involves felony B&E), Joe Peck joins the show for the last time (C-Bot has his pincers crossed), and our friends from the Twisted Ten make their triumphant return (surprised they agreed after the debacle that was the Flat Earth Round Table they were a part of).

Grey Aliens: Alien Abductors or Nonsense | 75

The Greys - they're the archetype alien. When someone even says the world "alien" - they likely picture a "Grey". You're thinking of them right now - little grey dude...big black eyes...over-sized and round head. Heck, look at our logo - that's a Grey. Is the image just so common now that every loon who says they've been abducted comes back with some version of the traditional Grey image? Or, is it so prevalent because this ACTUALLY IS the group of extra-terrestrials that regularly visit our planet? And if so, is there only one type? Are they actually aliens at all or a version of ourselves from the future? We probe the matter DEEP this week. Plus, Conspiracy Bot tries to make a kitty quesadilla (he fails), Joe Peck invites himself into the kitchen at Taco Bell (he succeeds), and Brent has multiple restraining orders leveraged against him thanks to C-Bot (success or failure on this one depends on your perspective).

Operation Northwoods: America's False Flag Operation | 74

Those tin foil hat types are at it again. Talking about a "conspiracy" by the US Government to attack our own cities and military targets just to blame another country so we could invade them...that would NEVER HAPPEN. Wait...hold on...I'm reading...yep, actually not only is it not crazy, it's confirmed to have been planned! That's right, in the early 60's the JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF approved a false flag operation called Operation Northwoods that would authorize attacks on our own military targets, instigate hijackings, and bomb American cities. THEN, plant false evidence implicating Fidel Castro and communist Cuba...so we had a reason to invade. But why were we so willing to hurt our own people? Who was really behind the cover-up? Did JFK die for his refusal to move forward with the plan? This week we spend a Havana Night getting to the bottom of it. Plus, Brent is implicated in the death of JFK (by Conspiracy Bot), somehow there's a discussion about Northern Exposure (remember when Paul Provenza was on?), and C-Bot decides he was a fan of Nero (the most unsurprising news of the week).

The year is 1945 and things aren’t going well for Hitler and the Third Reich. Time is up for Adolph and everyone knows it. Everyone that is but Hitler himself. As the walls begin to close in he puts even more resources into his Wunderwaffe or Wonder Weapons. The prize of the lot? A bell shaped machine potentially capable of destroying everything and everyone in it’s path...or perhaps even altering time itself. We all know how the story ends – the Allies win the war, Germany is split, and the face of the world changes. But what happened to this secret Nazi project? Did it actually even exist? Was Hitler on the verge of using the Nazi Bell to change history forever and if so, where is it now? And what does it have to do with a UFO sighting in Pennsylvania 20 years later? Join us as we go behind enemy lines and ring out the truth this week. Plus, Conspiracy Bot's comedy career goes on hold (thank all that is Holy), the fellas KILL IT with with their German accents (not really), and John continues to confuse the conspiracies on the show with Nazi Zombies from Call of Duty (no surprise there).

Why would the widower of one of the world's largest gun companies take over 36 years to build a mansion with 160 rooms, staircases that lead to nowhere, trap doors, and secret passageways? Was she simply a crazy old woman with too much time and money on her hands? Or was she doing everything in her power to bewilder and confuse the spirits of those killed by the blood money of the family business? The Winchester rifle DID win the west after all. We bust out our protractors and repeating rifles this week to figure it out. Plus, 2 of our 3 hosts have actually been to the location in question this week so you'd think that would give us a better than usual insight (it doesn't), is Christie Brinkley an actress (duh, have you seen Vacation?), and C-Bot tries to break up Brent's marriage (again).

Bigfoot: America's Favorite Cryptid | 71

Bigfoot - sometimes a topic needs no introduction and this is one of them. But just in case you stumbled across this podcast by dumb luck and know nothing about cryptids OR you've been living in a bomb shelter, cut off from the world, à la Brendan Fraser in Blast From the Past - here's a quick rundown. It's purportedly a large, hairy, ape-like creature that roams the U.S's Pacific Northwest. While there have been 1000s of sightings, 100s of footprints, and dozens of alleged videos taken of the legend - not one bone, skull, or any other other piece of true forensic evidence has ever been produced substantiating the simian beast's existence. So, is this a lost species that is either too good at hiding or too endangered to be found? Or, if this the greatest self perpetuating hoax of all-time? We strap on our hiking boots and do some tree knocking to get to the bottom of it this week. Plus, C-Bot has a disturbing notion of what one should bring with them to the zoo (we don't know why he needed bleach and plumber's putty), we talk the ins and outs of Bigfoot finding himself (even a Sasquatch can spend his formative years backpacking through Europe), and Brent adds a new voice to his repertoire (Frankenstein's Bigfoot anyone?).

Is there a secret, clandestine organization inside the U.S. Government responsible for the identification, investigation, and obfuscation of all extra-terrestrial activity on Earth? If so, they're called The Majestic 12 and were started back in the 40's by Truman right around the time of Roswell. But, the theory has its skeptics - INCLUDING members of the very UFO community it calls home. Is it real or just an elaborate hoax to sell books? The H 51 I-Team gives you the answers this week (well, our opinions...but close enough). Plus, we completely agree with something MUFON says, C-Bot quotes something from this decade, and a clip from Fox News is played on the show (all of the above is true and no it isn't April Fools!).

Ever wondered what it would be like to be able to see anything, anywhere, at any time? All you have to do is THINK about it and you can see it INSIDE OF YOUR OWN MIND. Sounds cool, right? But no one can do that. That’s the kind of stuff you read in comics and see in movies. In fact, wasn’t that what Patrick Stewart did for like 10 years in those X-Men Movies? It’s called Remote Viewing and not everyone thinks it’s just science fiction. That includes conspiracy theorists, new age philosophers, that one professor you had in college that would smoke weed with his students, and THE U.S. FREAKIN’ GOVERNMENT! Who spent over 2 decades and millions of dollars studying the phenomenon (and of course how they could use it for spying). Is it a real, trainable skill that human beings are only now learning to unlock the potential of, or just another waste of taxpayer time and money by good ol’ Uncle Sam? We open up our third eyes and go investigating this week. Plus, we talk walrus people milking (don’t worry though, no spoilers), C-Bot claims to have access to world’s NEST cams (he doesn’t – we hope), and we find a reason to mention Bill Brasky (never enough of those).

The Ouija Board. It’s a simple children’s game. Nothing more than cardboard and plastic. An alphabet laid out for kids to spell out messages and pretend the ghost did it. A plaything for the over active imagination and a tool for the manipulative mind. Nothing more. The Ouija Board. Not a simple children’s game but much, much more. While it looks like nothing more than cardboard and plastic – appearances can be a deceiving. It’s a summoning tool that in the best of circumstances awakens spirits that should be left in slumber. And in the worst of circumstances opens doors to places that shouldn’t be opened…and sometime can’t be closed. Demons don’t like to be disturbed… But which is true? Is Hasbro selling a tool of the devil? Or are thousands of idiots spending their time on YouTube videoing themselves with a children’s toy? We examine the history, weigh each side, then dive into the battle and find out for ourselves as we hit the road and test out a Ouija board in the field. Plus, was Bozo the Clown actually a demon who sent kids to hell? Joe Peck joins the show and spends most of it telling the ghosts they’re all cowards.

In 1972 the WUHN radio station out of Peoria Illinois did something most radio stations had stopped doing long ago, they put on a live radio drama – the Peoria Plague. With its roots in Night of the Living Dead and War of the Worlds, it is a piece that has truly stood the test of time to become one of the great dramas in radio history…and yet most people have not heard of it. There are no original copies to be found, just copies of a copy of a copy that survive in the public domain. But that doesn’t stop Producer Lisa this week as she goes hunting Zombies with the help of Conspiracy Bot while Brent and John have the week off. Will C-Bot try and poison her?

On the south edge of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile – Michigan Avenue – sits the historic Congress Hotel. Originally known for its opulence, it hosted national leaders and foreign dignitaries alike. But almost since its doors opened it’s also been known for something more sinister – it’s hauntings. From tales of trapped construction workers, to the elevator shafts that allegedly claimed so many lives, to the shocking number of suicides – the Congress is said to have seen its unfair share of death. Do ghouls now lurk its halls as guests sleep? Time to put our money where our mouth is and see for ourselves. We’ll take this show on the road to see if the Congress is truly haunted or if it’s just another urban legend to help sell ghost hunting kits. We go ghostbustin’ this week on Hysteria 51. Plus, Joe Peck returns to the show and brings us actual holy water from Jerusalem in case things get weird (no luck on the piece of the True Cross), Conspiracy Bot installs blast doors on the studio in an attempt to persuade the fellas to take him on the ghost hunt (would you let him loose in downtown Chicago?), and in an unrelated matter Conspiracy Bot no longer has access to a credit card (it’s related).

The problem with this joke is real people suffered. Real lives were lost and the “devil” had nothing to do with any of it. We break out our black t-shirts, dye our hair, and get to the HYSTERIA (too obvious?) behind it all this week.

In the late 1800’s the sleepy town of Watseka, Illinois saw a series of strange and mysterious events involving the tragic death of one young girl and the beguiling illness of another. The mysterious story allegedly ended with America’s first documented case of spiritual possession. From remote viewing, to necromancy, seances and spiritualism to hauntings and angels, this story has it all. But the larger question remains – did a an actual possession take place? Or, was a grieving family just taken advantage of by a spiritualist huckster? This week we get into the spirit of things for the haunting of the the Roff house and the legend of the “Watseka Wonder”.

Allegedly a special ops black site where children were kidnapped, brainwashed, and experimented on, dissected, and killed.

Pharaohs and fortune, gods and gold, magic and murder, tombs and treasure. That’s just a little of the mythology evoked when you mention the pyramids.

And though there are literally 1000s of ancient pyramids all across the world, when you say “the pyramids” to almost anyone they think of that same place: the Giza Pyramid Complex. With mysteries such as the Great Pyramid and the Sphinx, these ancient wonders leave experts with more questions than answers. What is their true purpose? Who actually built them? Could they have been 1000s of years old when the Egyptians found them? And, of course, how were the aliens involved? This week we dust off our fedoras, pack up the camels, and go in search of the truth.

They might all sound like plot devices of the latest Nic Cage flick, but they’re actually all parts of the story of the Knights of the Golden Circle. An alleged secret society of southern sympathizers who were around well before the Civil War began and went underground when it ended. This secret society with masonic roots is also said to have birthed the Klu Klux Klan and buried a treasure somewhere in the US so valuable that treasure hunters still seek it to this day. Were the Knights of the Golden Circle a well-organized and extraordinarily funded machine with a pro-slavery / racist agenda pushing the US towards a second civil war? Or was it a hapless band of racist idiots that printed a few fliers and came up with what they thought was a cool name and handshake? The H-51 I-Team investigates. Plus, contest winner Ryan Nolan joins the show to tell us why he suggested this topic, C Bot mends fences with Nic Cage while simultaneously accusing him of assassinating Lincoln, and we learn that the best mercenaries are always black market antiquities dealers (don’t ask). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t do ALL of our research in Nic Cage movies – just most of it – Hysteria 51.

Shadow People: Interdimensional Boogeymen or Figments of Sleep Deprived Imaginations? | 57
3931
You’re laying in bed half asleep, half awake and see something out of the corner of your eye. Did that shadow just move? No, that’s silly. Shadows don’t move. But, then again…it really seemed like it moved…there it is again..but closer…and closer. It’s our ANNUAL HALLOWEEN SHOW and it’s time to talk Shadow People! Shadow people are thought by many to be conscious, intelligent, inter-dimensional beings that can move in and out of our dimension at will. And these bad boys aren’t here just to play canasta. They are reported to paralyze their victims, drain them of energy, and do much, much worse. We go hunting in the dark to find out more. Plus, we play some of our favorite clips from Halloween movies (fun!). Conspiracy Bot gets legs (bad idea!). And the show is joined by JP Doyal of Just Paranormal (horrible idea for him!). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t always see shadow people, but when we do it means 6 more weeks of HALLOWEEN – Hysteria 51.

Battleship armadas, space stations, Martian colonies, and moon bases – no, this isn’t the newest Michael Bay flick – it’s what’s happening in our solar system RIGHT NOW! Welcome to the Secret Space Program. With roots dating back to WW2 (why are the Nazis always involved in this crap?) – do we have an intergalactic fleet of ships patrolling the universe to keep the Earth safe? Some people, even some with (loose) military ties – say we do. Heck – that laser thing Ronnie Ray-Gun was working on in the 80’s was called Star Wars. Do we need more proof than that? We take the show into WARP speed and see what’s really on the Dark Side of the Moon (great album). Plus, was Thor actually a member of the Wonder Twins (obviously)? The fellas can’t settle the Star Trek vs Star Wars debate (obviously). And we learn Conspiracy Bot’s favorite character in either franchise is the Borg (OBVIOUSLY). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never made the Kessel run, but if we did we’re sure we could do it in less than 12 parsecs – Hysteria 51.

The Mysterious Disappearance of Flight MH 370 | 55
4814
On March 8th 2014 Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 took off from Kuala Lumpur bound for Beijing with 239 souls on board. It never arrived and no one knows for sure where it went. Did it crash into the ocean? Was there a terrorist attack? What could make a 380 ton airplane disappear off of the face of the earth? Where did it go? Who was actually flying? Was there a larger plan at work? Or was it just a series of unfortunate events that ended in the tragic deaths of all on board? To this day the body of the plane has not been located, speculation runs rampant, and no one can conclusively answer – what happened to flight MH 370? The H 51 I-Team investigates (with the help of the Secret Transmission Podcast!) Plus, Conspiracy Bot decides he wants his pilots license.The tie between Derek Zoolander and the Malaysian Prime Minister is explored.

Polybius: The Arcade Game that Kills | 54
3240
Ever played a video game and felt almost addicted? We’ve all been there. Then you get nauseous, have horrible nightmares, suffer from convulsions, and maybe even die? Oh wait, the Street Fighter 2 marathon didn’t do that? Well, a mysterious arcade game in the outskirts of Portland, Oregon did in the early 80’s. Polybius, allegedly only in a few arcades, was under constant surveillance by (you guessed it) men IN BLACK SUITS. Soon after it appeared, the mysterious arcade game vanished without warning—leaving no record of its existence. Did the game really exist? If so was it some sort of mind control experiment by the government, or something even more far fetched? Could it have been a testing ground to find the best and the brightest future stars of the US military? The H 51 I-Team investigates (but mostly just plays video games). Plus, is C Bot’s favorite game Global Thermonuclear War or Tic-Tac-Toe (hint: is isn’t Tic Tac Toe)? Who’s the best at Dig Dug (hint: it isn’t Brent). And is the Power Glove just…so bad (yes, of course it is).

Over 70% of the earth’s surface is covered in water. And over 95% of that waterscape is unexplored. What lurks beneath the surface? Are there unknown beasts in the deep of imaginable size, ready to eat ships and destroy cities? Are there breeding populations of thought extinct fish, reptiles, and even dinosaurs? This week we’ll dive in deep and release the Kraken to find out. Plus, should the boys scrap C Bot in lieu of a Jaeger? (Yes) Can C Bot lift Thor’s hammer?

Somerton Man - Australian Cold Case or International Spy Conspiracy? | 52
4146
A recently deceased man’s body is discovered on an Australian beach. No signs of foul play and at first glance it appears to be just another unremarkable death. But then… The man can’t be identified…with any database…anywhere on the planet. All tags have been removed from his clothing, taking away the ability to even trace their country of origin. A small scrap of paper is found in his possession with two words in Persian, torn from a rare first edition book by a 12th century poet. Oh, and that natural death? Might not have been so natural. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg in what is considered Australia’s most perplexing cold case. The Somerton Man case has it all; love triangles, spy games, and even ciphers! Every good mystery needs a cipher. The H51 I-Team investigates. Plus, we discuss the various ways to die or get eaten in Australia, the return of C-Bot’s homicidal tendencies, and the return of the WHEEL OF CONSPIRACIES!

HAARP: The US Government's Weather Manipulator | 50

Can the government “weaponize” the weather? Are cataclysmic natural events around the world actually the result of an even colder war taking place between enemy states? If so, how would they do it? Enter HAARP – the The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program in Alaska. To some – a harmless antennae field in the middle of nowhere Alaska put in place to help study and expand worldwide communication abilities. But to others (ya know, the woke types) it’s a microwave on steroids ready to cause the next great tsunami or burn up a foreign dictator like an ant under a magnifying glass. But where lies the truth? The H51 I-team investigates.

While they were busy losing the war, the Nazi’s were also failing at acquiring another type of power – supernatural. And while we know these wastes of oxygen did unequivocally lose the war…some wonder about their success in the other. Did they capture the power magick in their final hours? Creating super soldiers, conducting mind control, and reanimating the dead? Not to mention chatting with aliens and building a secret base in Antarctica. Plus, what’s the best way to kill Nazi zombies? (Call of Duty) What’s the best Indiana Jones movie? (Last Crusade) And is Crystal Skulls considered canon? (Not by us).

DB Cooper - The Only Unsolved Plane Hijacking in US History | 48
3955
Remember in Ocean’s Eleven when George Clooney boarded a plane wearing a dark suit and tie and opened his brief case showing a bomb to the flight attendant and hijacked the plane? Then he demanded 200K in cash, four parachutes and food for the crew before releasing all the passengers. Classic Clooney amirite?!? Then 45 minutes after takeoff, Clooney sent the flight attendant to the cockpit while donning the parachute, tied the bank bag full of the money to himself, and jumped into the night. When the plane landed, all they found were two leftover parachutes and the tie Clooney had been wearing…our suave protagonist was never caught…classic Clooney! OK – that wasn’t actually from Ocean’s Eleven and George Clooney wasn’t involved – but it ACTUALLY DID HAPPEN! That’s the basic story behind the mysterious hijacking and disappearance of DB Cooper in the Pacific Northwest in the early 70s. Did he actually get away with the only unsolved hijacking in US History? Could he have survived the jump? Where did the money go? Is a bourbon and soda the suavest drink to order while hijacking a plane? Plus, Nicolas Cage threatens Conspiracy Bot (he didn’t like Captain Correli’s Violin), we discuss the unfortunate turn Nic’s movies have taken as of late, and also talk our favorite CAGE flicks.

See what we did there? Joining us are pundits from both sides of the aisle…or disk…or sphere. We’ve got 2 Youtube all stars on the flat earth side (Jeran of Jeranism and David Weiss of DITRH) and then Adam and Tach of The Twisted Ten fame (oh and they happen to work at NASA and Space X). And if that weren’t enough we threw in Astrophysicist Greg Finn to help stir the pot.

We dive in to history and mystery behind these ghouls. Where did they come from? Why are they angry? If you’re a second class ghost why wouldn’t you move to first class (you can literally walk through walls)? We also ask the questions that other podcasts are afraid to ask. How does a chef get cooked in his own oven? What does a spirit nicknamed “Half Hatch Harry” have to do with Austin Powers? Are proton packs the best line of defense against spirits?

Imagine this Zillow listing: This charming and spacious 3 floor hotel has been lovingly maintained by the original owner for years! Interestingly angled, narrow corridors with…mood lighting. Dead ends and generous stairways that lead nowhere but are nonetheless magical. Many rooms are lined with asbestos-coated steel plates, completely soundproofed, and equipped with special peepholes…some even come with open gas pipes! The second story also features trapdoors, secret passageways, and large greased shafts leading directly to the cellar. The cellar has all the charm of a medieval doctor’s office complete with acid tank, quicklime vats, a dissection table, and an “elasticity determinator” that can stretch guests to twice their normal height. Human body sized furnace in the cellar for those cold Chicago nights. Seller willing to leave all! This was the hotel that America’s first serial killer, HH Holmes built on the south side of Chicago. Holmes and his “murder castle” are thought by some to have been responsible for the deaths of over 200 people during the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. We dive in to the man, the myth, and the castle. Plus, we examine what it takes to create a race of giants, the absolute perfection of a late 1800s mustache, and Conspiracy Bot starts creating his own glitches in the Matrix.

Plus, Conspiracy Bot makes child abuse jokes, we test out our French accents and knowledge of French culture (spoiler alert we’re both insulting AND incorrect which takes some skill), and the show gets a new opening theme. All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t always answer the door, but when we do we’re in a robe – Hysteria 51.

Jack the Ripper pt 2 | 31
3793
The Ripper is back! This week we dive back into merry ol’ England and explore who could have been killing all of these drunk prostitutes. Was it a quack doctor who was also involved in the Lincoln assassination? What about Lewis Carroll? Could he have been offing the ladies of the night after writing Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (it is a weird book)…we investigate. Plus, is Prince Albert truly in a can, is Johnny Depp really a Freemason, and is this show actually just bad FM radio.

Jack the Ripper | 30
2422
Jack The Ripper, there isn’t a name more synonymous with murder than this Victorian aged serial killer. Though it’s been close to 130 years since his last murder, the lore and mystery behind the Ripper is as strong today as ever. How many drunk prostitutes did he actually kill? What was behind the evisceration of the corpses? Is working as a butcher an automatic qualifier for being a serial killer? Plus, the best wrestling finishing moves to use on elderly United passengers, Conspiracy Bot has a penchant for Agatha Christie and poison, and we explore nineties alternative rock band Sixpence None The Richer and their direct tie to the Ripper legend.

The Mysterious Death of Elisa Lam | 29

In early 2013 guests of a seedy LA hotel began complaining that the water tasted funny. At the same time a girl who had been staying at said hotel was missing. You can probably guess where this is going. But human flavored water isn’t even the weird part of the story. In this week’s episode we investigate the bizarre disappearance and death of Elisa Lam. Plus Conspiracy Bot’s British alter ego, a musical tribute to Rick Moranis, and the possibility of agreement between our hosts for the second week in a row.

Travis Walton: Fire in the Sky UFO Abduction | 28
4286
In 1975, a group of seven men are driving home after working in a forest when they see a mysterious light. Intrigued, Travis Walton leaves the truck — only to be sucked up by a flying saucer. Walton reappears five days later malnourished, dehydrated, and with one hell of a story to tell. Was it an amazing alien abduction, or a group of grifter’s get-rich-quick scheme? We get to the bottom of it. Plus, a gameshow that kills (literally), the positive impact of UFOs on trees, and a startling revelation about Conspiracy Bot’s past.

Zodiac Killer | 27
5019
Ah, San Francisco in the late 60’s – free love, copious amounts of drugs, peace, harmony, and MURDER? The Zodiac Killer – an infamous serial killer who terrorized the San Francisco Bay Area for nearly a decade – has not been captured or identified to this day. Was this string of gruesome deaths the product of a deranged genius – taunting police with letters, ciphers, and phone calls? Or rather, was it the work of one or more attention starved nut jobs that were the beneficiaries of inept police work and the technological limitations of the time. We’ll get to the bottom of it. Plus, Conspiracy Bot get an upgrade, Eddie Murphy is on the show WAY too much, and we discuss how that rug REALLY did tie the room together. Oh, and we have a real life (almost) attorney on the show. Sorry, with this show’s budget – that was the best we could do. All of that and more on the podcast that just wants to be friends…with benefits – Hysteria 51.

Here are the basics, the average temp will be roughly -15, the translated name of our destination is “Don’t Go There” and the route we’ll take will have us traversing “The Mountain of the Dead”. No takers? Well, in 1959 10 Russian college students decided to do that very thing. And…spoiler alert…9 of them didn’t come back. Theories as to their demise include wind born craziness (yes that’s a thing), Cold War chemical weapons, aliens, and even Yetis! The H51 I Team investigates. Plus, the triumphant return of Brent to the show, Conspiracy Bot pushes his luck a little too far, and the merits of sunbathing when you’re dead.

We hear from a few on why they believe this ain’t no oblate spheroid. Plus Conspiracy Bot makes a friend, the Perfect Strangers theme song comes into play, and Brent might or might now have been visited by Reptilians (spoiler alert – it involves his gallbladder).

We discuss, plus did they have cell phones, was Atlantis ALSO a UFO filling station, and spirited discussions about rocks (it’s better than it sounds).

The Curse of Oak Island – a long time legend and now the name of an over-hyped History Channel reality show we all spend way too much time watching. This week the fellas continue the Oak Island conversation with the Lagina Brothers and all things O.I. in the modern era. The show that has America collectively asking, “can you just dig an f’n hole already?”. Also we talk Dan Blankenship’s superiority to Chuck Norris, the mystery that is his blue lip, and the virtues of being brave and stupid at the same time. Plus, we tell you what’s actually buried there and Conspiracy Bot gets personal and has a moment. All of that and more on the podcast that is preferred by 9 of 10 Canadians – Hysteria 51.

Oak Island | 22

O, Canada – the Great White North. Known for hockey, maple syrup, and Templar Knight treasure? King Solomon’s Menorah? Original Shakespearean manuscripts? While all of those might sound absurd (Vermont makes the best maple syrup silly). That and more are believed to be buried at the bottom of the Oak Island Money Pit. An alleged treasure location on Oak Island – a small island off the southern shore of Nova Scotia. Amid 2 centuries of digging, booby traps, and death, no one has discovered the location of the treasure, the origin, or its contents. Truth be told, there’s actually no proof a treasure of any type even exists. And yet, the treasure hunters endure. This week we “drill” into the history of the search and try to get to the “bottom” of the legend’s origin. “Dig” in with us on the podcast that always finds the treasure…at the bottom of the cereal box – Hysteria 51.

Dahmer – a name synonymous with murder, serial killings, cannibalism, and Ke$ha. Sorry, it’s really the only joke we could make here. That dude sucked…and bit…and cut. Ok, we’re done. Anyway, this week we talk all things Milwaukee Cannibal. We uncover what he did and why he did it. Ok, that’s a lie – we don’t really know WHY – but we take some stabs at it. Dammit…wasn’t even trying there. Anyway, we get to the bottom of it while talking rotisserie chicken with professional sports guy Bob Fescoe and Conspiracy Bot talks through his obsession with deer blood.

Mind control, weather manipulation, artificial pandemics, manufactured superstorms to be used as weapons. No, not the plot of the next G.I. Joe movie (though our fingers are crossed after that dumpster fire that was Retaliation. Seriously did you see that thing? AWFUL). It’s actually what many believe is being done by planes that cross our skies everyday via the streams of condensation that trail behind them…CHEMTRAILS! We talk potential perpetrators, possible motivation, and the likelihood of Conspiracy Bot being involved. Speaking of C Bot, we also find out the origin of his research (ever heard of ENIAC?), introduce our resident socialist Mark Frushour, and find the hidden agenda of the classic cartoon Ducktales.

Aftermath - Barney and Betty Hill | 19
4603
In last week’s episode we learned about Barney and Betty Hill. A nice couple from New Hampshire that said they were abducted by aliens back in the early 60s. The problem was, they couldn’t really remember what happened. Did they learn the secrets of interstellar travel? Were they experimented on? Exactly how many anal probes were involved? The answer to these questions and more were missing along with their memories. So, the Hills did what any sensible couple would do – they visited a hypnotist. The results of those sessions, the aftermath of their story going public, and our theories on what really happened are all in this week’s edition of the show. Plus, Carl Sagan joins us (sort of), Conspiracy Bot takes another step towards our eventual demise, and we take a skeptical look at Stanton Friedman – the world’s foremost expert on alien abductions he can profit from.

Abduction - Barney and Betty Hill | 18
4040
Alien abductions have a lot in common with first dates. They’re weird, you aren’t sure how they’ll end, and you get touched in fairly uncomfortable places…no, not like the back of a Volkswagen. The first modern, recorded example of these in the US happened September 19th, 1961 in rural New Hampshire. Barney and Betty Hill were on their way back from Canada (of course) when they say they had a close encounter. Did it really happen? If so, what did the aliens want? And why aren’t UFOs referred to as flying pancakes? The boys are joined by author and Mok’bara (Klingon martial art) expert Michael Paul Gonzalez, Conspiracy Bot abuses Flintstones vitamins, and the eerie similarities between aliens and the British are explored. All of that plus Robert Stack’s trench coat on the podcast that you aren’t mad at, just really disappointed in…Hysteria 51.

Ever put something somewhere and when you come back to get it, it’s gone? Us too. Well, that also happened to artist-turned-governor John White in 1590. Though, instead of losing his keys, he lost a colony of over 100 people including his daughter and granddaughter. How’s that for being born under a bad sign? When John returned to the scene of the crime (?), not only were the people gone, but so were the buildings. The only thing that remained was a wood post with the word “Croatoan” etched into its surface. Where did they go? What did Croatoan mean? And why in GOD’S NAME WAS AN ARTIST IN CHARGE OF A COLONY? Sorry, we let that one get away from us. The H51 I-Team investigates. Plus Conspiracy Bot gets a seat at the table, Gofo tries (unsuccessfully) to convince Brent to read, and the boys share the words to a Jimmy Buffet song you only thought you knew.

The Mad Strangler of Boston, The Phantom Strangler, The Silk Stocking Murders, The Boston Strangler. No matter the name, over a period of 2 years in the early 60’s one killer (or killers) murdered 13 women and terrorized a community. Then as suddenly as the horrific crimes started they stopped. Soon after a convicted rapist stepped forward and claimed to have murdered all 13 women. While the police, the city, and the entire New England area were relieved to have this fiend behind bars…some wonder if they had the right man. Many believe that not only could others have been involved, but that the true Strangler could still be walking the streets of Boston today. H 51’S i-team investigates.

Ah, the internet. An interconnected series of tubes and wires bringing us all together with stupid cat videos, planking, and Viagra ads. But every now and then the internet produces a story befitting a late 80’s Robert Stack treatment. Enter #pizzagate. Through a series of wikileaked e-mails, Instagram photos and some BIG leaps of faith, the dark corners of the internet have decided that an independent pizza joint in Washington DC is the center hive to a satanic, pedophilic sex ring that is participated in and supported by the Washington elite – going all the way to the top. Has the collective wisdom of 4chan, Reddit, and the rest of the web uncovered a devilish plot, or have they vilified a bunch of people with nothing more than a hunch and a dream that s**t like this actually exists.

When it reappeared in Philadelphia, members of the crew were fused into the hull while others were driven mad. Either that, or the Eldridge was never in Philadelphia at all and the whole thing is BS.
