For decades, Bill Cosby brought warmth and laughter across the country, cementing his image as “America’s Dad.” But behind that disguise was the real Bill Cosby – the monster who preyed on women by promising them mentorship, only to then drug and violate them.

The 1950s & 60s saw a wave of radical movements. Che Guevara and the Cuban Revolution. The Black Panthers. Quebec and Canada had the FLQ — a showdown that dissolved into crisis. By October 1970, there were soldiers in the streets, communities on edge, kidnapping and terror in the headlines. But those frightening weeks were just the crescendo of a wave of terror and violence that was nearly a decade in the making. This series will reveal the stories of that time through immersive storytelling and the people who lived it: the bomb disposal expert on defusing live explosives, the survivors of terror, their families, and the radicals themselves.

Introducing: Brainwashed

Introducing: Brainwashed

2020-09-2325:221

Brainwashed investigates the CIA’s covert mind control experiments – from the Cold War and MKULTRA to the so-called War on Terror. It’s the story of how a renowned psychiatrist used his unwitting patients as human guinea pigs at a Montreal hospital, and the ripple effects on survivors, their families, and thousands of other people around the world. It also examines the cultural impact — how the CIA brought LSD to America and inadvertently created counterculture influencers such as author Ken Kessey and poet Allen Ginsberg. It’s an exploration of what happens in times of fear, when the military and medicine collide. And what happens when the survivors fight back.

This whole story is unbelievably fascinating. I'm glad Raniere is finally sentenced. Hope the victims find some peace in that.

It's a dam shame all of the negative comments about the narrator's voice. I can only imagine how much work went into making this podcast. His voice is quite on par with other creepy/paranormal podcasts. I actually kind of like it although it makes me a bit sleepy.

wow. these people have outstanding memories for something that happened 20 years... also that is absolutely terrible what that landlord did (coming from a landlord here.) why didn't the social worker sort that out for her and find a better place for her?

I love the straight folk who have decided that they police force somehow did a good job, while ignoring gay people disappearing without their passports or wallets. It's the AllLivesMatter response of the straight world.

Backmasking was simply an excuse, something people could point the finger at, rather than accepting the truth that they are the problem. Bad parenting for starters.

"We ran the evidence" WHAT F***ING EVIDENCE!

How are individuals, especially the police, called out on all these allegations. Assuming these groups existed, I would think they wear a ceremonial robe. Possibly even a mask. Both are to conceal the identities of the members. Showing up in a police uniform would not happen. If the fear was so strong, having everyone on edge. Where was the physical evidence?
