Hysteria 51

Hysteria 51 is a weekly podcast that takes an every-man approach to the World of the Weird - UFOs, Aliens, Mysteries, Conspiracies, the Paranormal, the Unusual, and the Unexplained. Hosts Brent Hand, David Flora, 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 297: Project MKOFTEN: Drugs, The Occult, & The CIA | 297

After the planet was ravaged by World War 2 the powers that be were looking for any edge they could. The United States was no different. So, they engaged in many secret medical experiments designed to help win the cold war... But at what cost? Let’s just say you can’t perfect mind control and Manchurian candidates without breaking a few eggs, and by eggs we mean unknowing subjects, both military and civilian. Oh yeah, black magic and the occult might have been involved as well... you know, for good measure. So, strap in, we are talking MKOften and CIA shenanigans via... wait for it... DRUGS.. this week on Hysteria 51
