Hysteria 51

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 234: FLASHBACK: The Kentucky Meat Shower | 234


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!

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.
