Welcome to Hysteria 51


Operation Northwoods: America’s False Flag Operation | 74

Those tin foil hat types are at it again. Talking about a “conspiracy” by the US Government to attack our own cities and military targets just to blame another country so we could invade them…that would NEVER HAPPEN. Wait…hold on…I’m reading…yep, actually not only is it not crazy, it’s confirmed to have been planned! That’s...

Featured Guests


Joe Peck

Joe resides in Chicago and is our resident genius. With that comes all the great characteristics of a genius. He has a Mensa card. He has poor hygiene. He has flippant disregard for the feelings or needs of others. And he is a great partner for Trivial Pursuit! But, he does have a sweet plan for the impending Zombie Apocalypse, so we keep him around. His favorite food is passion fruit and he one day hopes to hunt humans as he believes the are the most dangerous prey, but he is incredibly lazy so I wouldn't sweat it.

Kevin Crispin

Kevin overthinks. A lot. He writes. Not enough. He lives across the street from Lake Michigan and keeps petitioning to get it rebranded as an ocean. He knows that's not how it works, but he has to have something to do with his weeknights. He is endlessly fascinated by the way people behave towards themselves, and each other. That makes him a great guest and a heavy drinker. Not that he drinks a lot, he just has a lot of mass. Also, people are attracted to him. But it hurts your eyes if you look directly at him without proper equipment. Kevin is a white dwarf star.

About 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.
