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 220: The Jersey Devil | 219

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...



episode 219: 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...



episode 218: Clowns | 217

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...



episode 217: New Years 2021: Three Skeleton Key

Happy New Year! And as a New year's tradition here on H51, we ring in the year with a old time radio drama. This year Vincent Price is on tap for Three Skeleton Key, a show did did live on air both in 1950 and 1953. Now, let's kick 2020 to the curb and ring in 2021 right! Show Description Written by French author, George G. Toudouze, the story tells of a lighthouse keeper's terrifying ordeal whilst stationed at a remote light on the infamous rock, Three Skeleton Key.



episode 216: 1941 Cape Girardeau UFO Crash: The Alien Coverup Before Roswell | 216

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...



episode 215: 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...

episode 214: The Richat Structure: The Eye of Africa or The Heart of Atlantis? | 214

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...

episode 213: The Circleville Letters | 213

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...

episode 212: The Woman in Black at the Drake Hotel | 212

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)...

Spring-Heeled Jack Revisited | Bonus

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!
