Hysteria 51

An Arts, Comedy and Society podcast featuring Brent Hand and John Goforth
 19 people rated this podcast
Hysteria 51 is a weekly podcast that takes an every-man approach to the world of the weird - 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.

Westall UFO Incident: A Close Encounter of the Australian Kind | 154
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, more terrestrial aircraft. This was followed by the appearance of a mysterious military type unit with designs on covering the whole thing up. What really happened in Westall? Who were the mysterious men telling locals to keep their mouths shut? Do windsocks react with swamp-gas? We head back to the Land Down Under this week and investigate. Plus, British Announcer Guy is back and has a bone to pick with Conspiracy Bot (this might not end well), the fellas try to calm things down with a negotiation of sorts (also not likely to end well), and even Kyle gets involved (definitely will not end well). All of that and more on the podcast that knows for a fact there wasn’t a UFO seen over Australia...because Australia isn’t real – Hysteria 51.Special thanks to this week’s research sources: Research Assistant - Raymond Walden IV Books/NewspapersThe Westall UFO Incident | Justin TullySchoolyard UFO Encounters: 100 True Accounts | Preston DennettDandenong Journal VideosNational Geographic - https://bit.ly/33HYiJHWestall '66: A Suburban UFO MysteryAUSTRALIA DOES NOT EXIST | ragreynolds - https://youtu.be/YtPut7usFbI  WebsitesWikipedia - https://bit.ly/2JwJyG8Pedestrian - https://bit.ly/2Z26i9yPedestrian - https://bit.ly/30h52MlFox News - https://fxn.ws/2HdMnd2FB Group - https://bit.ly/31SPkYvProject 1947 - https://bit.ly/2HcTIJGDavid Halperin UFO Journal - https://bit.ly/31PWwViMeanijn - https://bit.ly/2TMywzs UFOs - Documenting The Evidence - https://bit.ly/2lYfGbE Educating  Humanity - https://bit.ly/2m0tfHz J.P.

Plum Island: Bio Weapon Black Site or Disease Deterrent? | 153
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 some of the worst known animal diseases out there. But is that all they study? Is it really as safe as they say? Are there secret Nazi scientists are working on some of the most gruesome and devilish bio-weapons right under our noses? We slip into our biohazard suits and research it this week. Plus, the robots are on everyone’s last nerve (cheese muffins), a certain British announcer makes his way to the Lower Fourth (no, we still don’t really understand him), and Brent gives everyone a nautical lesson on WW2 era submarines (let’s just say you shouldn’t site him as a research source). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never studied dangerous diseases up close…that’s what we have the robot for - Hysteria 51.Special thanks to this week’s research sources: Research Assistant - Raymond Walden IVBooksLab 257| Michael C.
