Hysteria 51

Hysteria 51

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

Ever have a story you just can’t seem to wrap your head around? For me it’s TTSA, and Robert Bigelow. Luckily, I called in the Dr. for a 2nd opinion. This week Dr. Chris Cogswell returns to the lower 4th Dimension to talk Remote Viewing, Hal Puthoff, Scientology, Mentalists, TTSA, Robert Bigelow, Politics of Science, Jeffrey Epstein, NIDS, Harry Reid, Richard Doty, Skinwalker Ranch, Tom Delonge, and on and on… I got dizzy just ...

From the first contact in 1942, a series of diplomatic visits to discuss matters of mutual concern were planned. Under the treaty 23/04, these meetings would take place in secrecy, a limited number of special agents would escort visitors and they would only meet high ranking officers… or at least that is what a series of videos posted to YouTube in 2011 by ivan0135 tells us. The videos that introduced us to Skinny Bob, alien sensa... Read more

Look, up in the sky… It’s a Bird… It’s a plane… It’s a 13,000-year-old alien probe sent to keep an eye on us! Those that believe the Black Knight Satellite is real say it is just that, and the story has all the best players- Nikola Tesla, Astronauts, Reptilians, Ancient Aztecs, the USSR, Jacques Vallée, even the Illuminati! Does it exist? Where did it come from? Did Conspiracy Bot wipe out Mars? Those are the questions we tackl... Read more

Never judge a book by is cover, judge it by the bumps on its head! Or so Franz Joseph Gall would have had you believe when he developed Phrenology in the 1700’s. That’s right, it’s pseudoscience week this week as Kevin Crispin stops by to help us take a peek at Phrenology and how it was used for racism, sexism, classism, and all sorts of other crappy isms. Plus, Cbot claims he collects skulls (he might), Kevin loses sleep over a... Read more

The death of your child has to be one of the worst things a parent ever has to face. Now imagine everyone blames you, you go to prison for it, and the event becomes the butt of a world wide joke. FUN! Yeah, probably not, but that is what happened with the death of Azaria Chamberlain, the story that created the phrase “Dingo Ate My Baby”. This week Brent heads back down under to try and get to the bottom of this story with the he... Read more

This week Brent takes over host duties as John is on assignment in… Delaware… But have no fear, David Flora of Blurry Photos Podcast steps up and channels his inner Goforth. Plus CBot throws his hat into the hosting ring(don’t worry, we won’t let him), David talks about his Hypnotic Regressions sessions (He may or may not have been Joan of arc in a former life), and we sit down with the creators of the Documentary Extraordinary: T...

We’ve all been there – you’re on the job and something goes wonky with your welding gun. Next thing you know you’re telepathic and can not only read the thoughts of your co-workers, but also an evil race of robots living underground. You know, that old yarn. Well, it also happened to Richard Shaver and afterwards he sent his account of living with them to a magazine. When the magazine’s publisher received it, he did the logical thi... Read more

We’re back in the cryptid cornucopia this week with Mongolian Death Worms. We know, we know….they sound cuddly, but we wouldn’t suggest snuggling up. These enormous worm-like creatures allegedly live in the Gobi desert and snack on locals for sport. They spit acid, shoot electricity, and will kill a man by a mere touch (yeah, we’re surprised it isn’t Australian too). But are Mongolian Death Worms the surreptitious stalkers from leg... Read more

This week we…

Well, this week…

You see, a funny thing happened on the way…

It’s like…hmm…it’s like a Hysteria 51 adventure…

Ah, forget it. You better just listen for yourself.

Elementary school is such a fun experience. How could you not love the art projects, lunchtime with your friends, recess, UFO sightings…. Well, that last one is specific to a small suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia (also colloquially known as Westall). The Westall UFO Incident took place on April 6th, 1966, when over 200 students and faculty in the area reportedly observed multiple UFOs defying physics and toying with other,... Read more

If the U.S. were to have a facility to exclusively study the deadliest animal pathogens in the world. Where do you think they would put it? Some remote outpost in the middle of nowhere? Thousands of feet underground? An island just off the coast of New York? If you took door number 3 you’re our winner…of foot and mouth disease! Plum Island, or the Plum Island Animal Disease Center is just off the coast of Long Island and studies so... Read more

The majesty of the Great Pyramid of Giza is unrivaled. Its masterful design, its mind-boggling construction, the fact that’s its just an ancient, enormous water pump in the middle of the desert. Ummm, well, that’s the opinion of more than one expert and that of our guest this week – Steve Meyers. Steven has been studying the Great Pyramid for decades and contends its design is that of a functioning water pump to quench the thirst o... Read more

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... Read more

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 lea... Read more

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... Read more

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 f... Read more

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 bl... Read more

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... Read more

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... Read more
