Description

Hysteria 51 is a weekly “odd-cast” that takes an every-man approach to conspiracy theories, aliens, mysteries, 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.

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.Special thanks to this week’s research sources: Research Assistant - Raymond Walden IVBooksMy Quest for Yeti: Confronting the Himalayas' Deepest Mystery \ Reinhold MessnerThe Sherpa and the Snowman | Charles StonorNewsweek Special Edition - Bigfoot VideosRudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964) - https://imdb.to/2YAYEOIEvidence of the Yeti | National Geographic - https://bit.ly/2OLLRcDMystery of Himalayan Big Foot "Yeti" Abominable Snowman - https://bit.ly/2KeuP0XWebsitesWikipedia - https://bit.ly/1gB4dqjWikipedia - https://bit.ly/2rQix7aWikipedia - https://bit.ly/2bRyy4DWWF - https://wwf.to/2Zldie1Dictionary - https://bit.ly/2Yrk9p5 Bumble - https://bit.ly/2yqfOUiBumble - https://bit.ly/2YxRY7NNewsweek - https://bit.ly/2HhOJd8 Quora - https://bit.ly/2Ou5VQy Mental Floss - https://bit.ly/2dxnD1W Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
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). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t have a pet Yeti...we left the backyard gate open - Hysteria 51.Special thanks to this week’s research sources: Research Assistant - Raymond Walden IVBooksMy Quest for Yeti: Confronting the Himalayas' Deepest Mystery \ Reinhold MessnerThe Sherpa and the Snowman | Charles StonorNewsweek Special Edition - Bigfoot VideosRudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964) - https://imdb.to/2YAYEOIEvidence of the Yeti | National Geographic - https://bit.ly/2OLLRcDMystery of Himalayan Big Foot "Yeti" Abominable Snowman - https://bit.ly/2KeuP0XWebsitesWikipedia - https://bit.ly/1gB4dqjWikipedia - https://bit.ly/2rQix7aWikipedia - https://bit.ly/2bRyy4DWWF - https://wwf.to/2Zldie1Dictionary - https://bit.ly/2Yrk9p5 Bumble - https://bit.ly/2yqfOUiBumble - https://bit.ly/2YxRY7NNewsweek - https://bit.ly/2HhOJd8 Quora - https://bit.ly/2Ou5VQy Mental Floss - https://bit.ly/2dxnD1W Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
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). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t always talk about fictional books – or do we – Hysteria 51.Special thanks to this week’s research sources: Research Assistant - Raymond Walden IV BooksHigh Strangeness | Eric BickernicksOperation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program that Brought Nazi Scientists to America |  Annie Jacobsen WebsitesA Dead Guy - http://adeadguy.comHigh Strangeness - http://capecodufo.com Twitter - https://twitter.com/bickernicks Blurry Photos - http://www.blurryphotos.org/  Hysteria 51 - http://hysteria51.com/And Huge thanks to Majungas for our music this week!You can follow them at: https://www.majungas.com/https://www.instagram.com/majungastheband/https://twitter.com/Majungasthebandhttps://www.facebook.com/majungashttps://open.spotify.com/album/065UKiYTMYq7xRiEEWP1zIhttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEZ_hGGpKDpgF7dY6qy4uvQ   Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
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. All of that and more on the podcast that won’t be raiding Area 51, we played that game enough in the 90's - Hysteria 51. Cheese muffins.

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.Special thanks to this week’s research sources: Research Assistant - Raymond Walden IV BooksTunguska: An Apocalyptic Event Beyond Belief | Conrad BauerThe Tunguska Mystery (Astronomers' Universe) | Vladimir Rubtsov and Edward Ashpole VideosArthur C.

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). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never committed a war crime, though some might argue guilt by robot association – Hysteria 51.

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). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never caught fire spontaneously, but we think we saw it happen once at a rave in college  -  Hysteria 51.Special thanks to this week’s research sources: Research Assistant - Raymond Walden IVBooksABLAZE!

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 Alien Con 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 to 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). All of that and more on the podcast that can’t hear the Hum but our wives would argue our hearing is selective to begin with – Hysteria 51.

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 the ghost ship. They arrived to find the entirety of the crew dead. When the investigating captain finally decided to tie ‘er up and toe ‘er back…that’s when 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 (oh and the host of the popular podcast Hillbilly Horror Stories – Mr Jerry Paulley also joins the show).

My daughter's mother's Father walked the whole Appalachian Trail in one summer. He was like 58-64 hrs old. He's an amazing man. I call him the Green Genius. His house is a massive log mansion that he built from the ground up while they lived part of a barn converted into a mini apartment with two young children. He is brilliant. Everything on the property is beautiful, pond, gardens of vegetables, fruit trees, Christmas trees, rents rooms out as a bed n breakfast too. His wife is a Chinese teacher he met while visiting China on Vacation years ago. He's like Indiana Jones. Swear to God. the house is full of amazing artifacts & such.

You can definitely see stuff going by if you look at the moon when it’s not blindingly bright you can definitely see things satellites zip by on occasion. If you look at the night sky with no moon you can definitely see satellites go by. Christ, you can see the ISS with decent binoculars. NASA has a whole site, and an app, with real time positions of satellites. If you can’t see them you should go far enough from your town to see the sky without the light pollution. There are probably a lot of things you have been missing out on.

Awesome show! The hosts Brent Handjob, John Gofo and C Bot all hilarious yet insightful. Just to learn we are in a simulation and the creator sends Reptilians to just fuck with us. Also the men on black use grays to anal probe our memories away just for their entertainment.

I was once told by my grandfather that the US Military had 6 crafts from 100% unknown origins & that only 1 of which was a functional working craft. He said it was ironic because at the time he said they couldn't even turn it on or make it do a single thing. He said that all they could do was get inside it. that's it. whenever I asked him about how he knew this he would just say that he couldn't ever tell us that.

The problem with graphene isn’t production, it’s intellectual property rights. Graphene, its production and applications has more patent filings pending than any new material mankind has ever created. The system is designed to foster innovation, but in this case the system has fostered so much innovation that nobody can do anything with it. We’re 20(ish) years away from being able to use graphene the way we use steel, aluminum, titanium, etc...
