Brent and David are joined this week by Steven Kotler to talk his new book, The Devil’s Dictionary. Steven is a New York Times-bestselling author; we are talking nine bestsellers out of thirteen books total... How awesome is that?!?! And he has a fascinating array of books, such as The Art of Impossible, Tomorrowland, The Rise of Superman, Last Tango in Cyberspace, and many more. Not one to rest, he is also an award-winning journalist (nominated for 2 Pulitzer Prizes), he has done his own Ted Talk, and he is the Executive Director of the Flow Research Collective—a peak performance research and training institute that researches the neuroscience of flow states and trains individuals to harness the power of flow so they can achieve more, faster. Plus, near and dear to our hearts here at H51, Steven is a dog lover and cofounder of the Rancho de Chihuahua, a hospice and special needs dog sanctuary. Steven stops by to talk about how he uses fiction not just to entertain, but to generate dialogue and discussions to alert others of climate change and shed light on existing technologies that could combat climate change now. About The Devil’s Dictionary: In The Devil’s Dictionary, when a routine em-tracking job goes sideways and em-trackers themselves start disappearing, Lion finds himself not knowing who to trust in a life and death race to uncover the truth. And when the trail leads to the world’s first mega-linkage, a continent-wide national park advertised as the best way to stave off environmental collapse, and exotic animals unlike any on Earth start showing up―Lion’s quest for truth becomes a fight for the survival of the species. Packed with intrigue and heart-pounding action, marked by unforgettable characters and vivid storytelling, filled with science-based brilliance and cult comic touches, The Devil’s Dictionary is Steven Kotler at his thrilling science fiction best.

We're all going to die!! Or at least that is what the dozens of you who suggested this story seem to think. Surprisingly though, this time Conspiracy Bot is not involved, so we have that going for us. But, A.I. is involved, and Google of course. Google engineer Blake Lemoine has came forward and said a chatbot, LaMDA, is self aware. Has feelings, and fears being turned off.  Is this the technological singularity where we all now bow to our overlord before we are wiped out? Or maybe just confused ramblings of an overworked engineer who doesn't fully grasp the complexity of Chatbots and algorithms? Either way, ugh... Google... am I right????

If there is one thing we are sure of here at Hysteria 51, it’s that castles are haunted. Scooby-Doo taught us that from the jump and we are not about to forget it. But what makes a castle stake the claim of Most Haunted Castle in the World??? That’s a tall claim, but it’s just what Leap Castle in Ireland boasts. From its mysterious beginnings to its blood shed through the years to its lingering ghost stories, Leap Castles has all the markings to be just that... but are they true or just ramblings to bring in tourists and a quick buck? We strap on our best Irish accents and go a castle leaping this week on Hysteria 51 Special thanks to this week’s research sources: Books Castles Of Ireland; Some Fortress Histories And Legends | CL Adams -978-9354759000 Videos Haunted Castle | GHOSTS of LEAP CASTLE | Is the Scary Elemental Real? - https://youtu.be/eMPqwGGiVew Websites Leap Castle - http://leapcastle.net/ Leap Wiki - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leap_Castle Adelaide Haunted Horizons - https://adelaidehauntedhorizons.com.au/haunted-leap-castle-ghost-hunt/ IB4UD - https://www.irelandbeforeyoudie.com/leap-castle-history-and-info-about-the-worlds-most-haunted-castle/ Daily Scribbling - https://dailyscribbling.com/the-secret-life-of-irish-castles/leap-castle-kinslayers-priest-killers-rapture-and-flames/ Email us your favorite WEIRD news stories: weird@hysteria51.com Support the Show Get exclusive content & perks as well as an ad and sponsor free experience at https://www.patreon.com/Hysteria51 from just $1 Shop Be the Best Dressed at your Cult Meeting! https://www.teepublic.com/stores/hysteria-51?ref_id=4106  Support the show: https://www.patreon.com/Hysteria51 See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Quick question, what do you call a gathering of vampires? David and Brent argue that and the finer points of Guinness Book of World Records attempts by vampires this week. Also, Snippy a horse that died 55 years ago by unusual circumstances gets a new lease on life. And for $2 you can take a peek! All that and more this week on Blurry Hysteria.

It’s vacation week here at Hysteria 51. David is learning how to clean up the bots for Summertime Shenanigans (just a hose and fire) and Brent is trying to convince Producer Lisa his body is beach ready (pray for us all). To tide all you savages over until next week check out this throwback episode of Blurry Photos: Campfire Ghost Stories! Marshmallows? Check. Hammock? Check. Spine-tingling campfire ghost stories and some extra jorts? Check yeah! Flora brings the campfire ghost stories fright with a couple shivery shorts, a classic of English Lit, and gory little poem! Dark shadows on the stairs might be the least threatening thing at this campsite. If you want safety and security at your camp, just be careful what you wish for. And don’t forget to follow the rules, like no wandering off in the forest alone. Other than that, enjoy some homemade Irish stew and relax by the fire – or between the fires. Or just build fire all around you, fire good, fire safe. At least for this episode of Blurry Photos!

Congress held its first public hearing on UFOs in more than half a century. U.S. intelligence officials Scott Bray and Ronald Moultrie as well as members of Congress from both sides of the political aisle came together top talk unexplained aerial phenomena (UAPs). Was it a groundbreaking step into a world of disclosure? Or a maybe big plate of nothing wrapped in lies? We talk (argue) that this week on Mad Blurry hysteria, all the while welcoming Chris Cogswell back to the show!  News Stories Mentioned: Videos Open C3 Subcommittee Hearing on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena - https://youtu.be/aSDweUbGBow Websites Forbes - https://www.forbes.com/sites/suzannerowankelleher/2022/05/17/real-but-still-unexplained-congress-holds-its-first-ufo-hearing-in-50-years/?fbclid=IwAR0SSudgASE0neTWREcLwnVx04uy13r3eWJqREcadEZY2FHQAPA5bxbpgTA&sh=12a266c22e70 The Washington Post - https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2022/05/17/congress-ufo-hearing-disinformation-conspiracy-theories/?fbclid=IwAR35W1g8YEY2nYtEBEHXZqgv-RfxzmcB1WFnwwzBlTTMLb8WfySZIJCrr1c Email us your favorite WEIRD news stories: weird@hysteria51.com Support the Show Get exclusive content & perks as well as an ad and sponsor free experience at https://www.patreon.com/Hysteria51 from just $1 Shop Be the Best Dressed at your Cult Meeting! https://www.teepublic.com/stores/hysteria-51?ref_id=4106  Support the show: https://www.patreon.com/Hysteria51 See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

You see them all the time when driving, signs saying PSYCHIC in neon. It's the home of the tarot card readers. But, is there anything to it or is it just a cash grab and time suck like everything else in our lives?? Well, this is NOT the podcast to answer that, come on now. But we are going to talk tarot AND give each other readings on the show. So best case scenario we have at least a 10% chance am dooming our mortal souls to hell this week, so that's fun. Plus, Conspiracy Bot lets us know our fates (in order), KYLE professes his loves more than just cheese muffins (it's cookies so don't get too excited) and David bashes his tarot pixies. All that and more on the podcast that doesn’t always use tarot cards to decide our future. But when we do, they are read over the phone for $1.99 a minute - Hysteria 51.

Don’t you just hate it when you dump a body and forget all about it. Then decades of climate change come a calling and said body comes back to haunt you? No... just our robot? Well, sadly, he’s not alone as Lake mead in Nevada is at its lowest levels in history. That is making long forgotten things dumped in there to come back with a vengeance. Plus, we hop across the pond to the ever-weird Stonehenge for more mysteries as hundreds of man-made pits have been discovered at the location predating the henge itself by thousands of years. What the hell kind of shenanigans were going on at this place??? How many bodies are in Lake Mead? Why did my dad watch Hee Haw? We take a swing at answering 2 out of the 3 this week on Blurry Hysteria.

August 21, 1955 started off like so many others in the small community of Kelly, Kentucky, just another hot summer night. Lucky Sutton along with his family and friends were enjoying a quiet peaceful evening. But they were about to find out what was lurking in the darkness. They had visitors, ones not from this earth. After hours of siege from these beings, a gunfight, and visits of police, the event was over.  Then the crazy really began… Did small, metallic “goblins” really attack a family and their friends in rural Kentucky that fateful night? Or, did old carnival buddies have a bit too much of the sauce and spin a yarn that got out of control? So out of control that the whole world came a knocking… It’s the Kelly–Hopkinsville Encounter and the birth of "Little Green Men" this week on Hysteria 51.

H51 Classic Time!! Stranger Things Season 4 is coming out soon so what better way to celebrate than to revisit our Montauk episode, the story that gave inspiration to the Stranger Things. Plus, who doesn't want some more Peck in their life?!?!?! Original Description: On the eastern tip of Long Island New York sits the sleepy town of Montauk. It’s a summertime getaway for New York’s affluent and also happens to be the home of one of the darkest conspiracy theories in US history – the “Project Montauk ”. Allegedly a special ops black site where children were kidnapped, brainwashed, and experimented on, dissected, and killed. The purposes of which ranged from mind control, remove viewing, and ESP to telekinesis and ripping holes in space time. Were thousands of children turned into the telekinetic super soldiers…or is this just the mad ramblings of some weird old men. We’ll journey into the upside down to find out. Plus, Brent professes his love for Wynona (Judd), the boys have an uncomfortable debate about the pronunciation of Winona’s first name (Ryder), and Joe Peck joins the show for the last time (C-Bot means it this time). All of that and more on the podcast that doesn’t always pick topics that have TV shows loosely based on them, but when we do it’s always Stranger Things – Hysteria 51.

Break out the candles and pop open some wine, it’s time to get sexy…. Or at least talk about whale dorks and alien babies on this week’s haul of weird stories. You do you, we don’t kink shame!

Ah, Merry Old England, it's a magical place filled with wonder, excitement, and forests! And those forests are filled with hell hounds, and evil huntsmen, black eyed children, werewolves, vengeful ghosts, and even Pigmen... So yeah, fun! Director George Popov joins us this week to talk his new Documentary, Sideworld: Haunted Forests of England. In it he focuses on 3 spooky places, Wistman's Wood, Cannock Chase, and Epping Forest. They are filled with stories of horror and sightings galore of everything we mentioned above and so much more.  We talk what it's like moving from feature films to documentaries, how scary it is filming in haunted locations, and why Conspiracy Bot sucks so bad.

This week Brent convinces us we don’t have to be lonely; we can get plowed by an alien! And by plowed he means subjugated while the planet is stripped… Stripped of its resources, not the sexy kind of stripping. Or so warned Stephen Hawking, but that never stopped us before! Plus, David tries to convince us that a mermaid mummy that has been worshipped for centuries is a fake. How stupid does he thing we are?!?!?! All that and more random ramblings on the first Blurry Hysteria!

I know it’s been a while but I thought it would be good to leave a reminder. Brent, you are still an ugly pigeon. John keep it real. Producer Lisa, I love your impeccable soundboard timing and infrequent but funny interjections. And lastly all hail C-Bot our Robot overlord.

C-bot wanted for the murder of his robot girlfriend. 10,000$ bounty posted. The robot, C-Bot, is to be considered armed and Dangerous at all times.

Good episode but the annoying ass Honda commercial could have waited until there was a break in the podcast instead of interrupting Brent mid-sentence.
