In this very special episode of Hysteria 51 we take an introspective look back at the show over the years and the socioeconomic…hahahahah…I can’t. Nope, for our 51st episode we talk our (sorta) namesake – Area 51. What’s there? What isn’t? Do the aliens only communicate with Data from Star Trek? Plus, C-Bot compares the show to Rouge One (he just likes the robot), can a patty melt be classified as a cheeseburger (a debate ensues), and are Lego sets really Area 51 starter kits (was there ever a doubt)? All of that and more on the podcast that can’t quite believe we’ve actually made it to 51 episodes – Hysteria 51.
Can the government “weaponize” the weather? Are cataclysmic natural events around the world actually the result of an even colder war taking place between enemy states? If so, how would they do it? Enter HAARP – the The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program in Alaska. To some – a harmless antennae field in the middle of nowhere Alaska put in place to help study and expand worldwide communication abilities. But to others (ya know, the woke types) it’s a microwave on steroids ready to cause the next great tsunami or burn up a foreign dictator like an ant under a magnifying glass. But where lies the truth? The H51 I-team investigates. Plus, C Bot has a new money making scheme (it isn’t very good), he has a new rap, (it too isn’t very good), and he stars in a new episodes of Bag and Bot (also not very good). All of that and more on the podcast that can’t control the weather, but certainly likes to make it rain – Hysteria 51.
While they were busy losing the war, the Nazi’s were also failing at acquiring another type of power – supernatural. And while we know these wastes of oxygen did unequivocally lose the war…some wonder about their success in the other. Did they capture the power magick in their final hours? Creating super soldiers, conducting mind control, and reanimating the dead? Not to mention chatting with aliens and building a secret base in Antarctica. Plus, what’s the best way to kill Nazi zombies? (Call of Duty) What’s the best Indiana Jones movie? (Last Crusade) And is Crystal Skulls considered canon? (Not by us). All of that and more on the podcast that prefers our Nazis as zombies in video games – Hysteria 51.
Remember in Ocean’s Eleven when George Clooney boarded a plane wearing a dark suit and tie and opened his brief case showing a bomb to the flight attendant and hijacked the plane? Then he demanded 200K in cash, four parachutes and food for the crew before releasing all the passengers. Classic Clooney amirite?!? Then 45 minutes after takeoff, Clooney sent the flight attendant to the cockpit while donning the parachute, tied the bank bag full of the money to himself, and jumped into the night. When the plane landed, all they found were two leftover parachutes and the tie Clooney had been wearing…our suave protagonist was never caught…classic Clooney!
OK – that wasn’t actually from Ocean’s Eleven and George Clooney wasn’t involved – but it ACTUALLY DID HAPPEN! That’s the basic story behind the mysterious hijacking and disappearance of DB Cooper in the Pacific Northwest in the early 70s. Did he actually get away with the only unsolved hijacking in US History? Could he have survived the jump? Where did the money go? Is a bourbon and soda the suavest drink to order while hijacking a plane? Plus, Nicolas Cage threatens Conspiracy Bot (he didn’t like Captain Correli’s Violin), we discuss the unfortunate turn Nic’s movies have taken as of late, and also talk our favorite CAGE flicks. So, yeah, in retrospect…lots of Nic Cage. All of that and more on the podcast that believes the only good airplane to hijack is CON AIR – Hysteria 51.
Ever throw a great party only to have it crashed by an unexpected guest that shows up and ruins the whole thing? Eats all the guacamole, drinks all the beer, is actually an ancient alien civilization and/ or a rogue planet spiraling across the universe? You know, that ol’ chestnut. Well, that’s exactly what some people think is in our future when the (yet to be discovered) planet Nibiru comes calling later this year, or in a few hundred years, or when its (yet to be discovered) sun drags it this way. So yeah – we talk through that. Plus, is Sansa Stark a valuable member of the X-Men? Why is John singing showtunes? And the fellas figure out how to easily shut Conspiracy Bot up (hint: it’s related to John’s singing). All of that and more on the podcast that isn’t rooting for the alien apocalypse, but we’re not really rooting for Jean Grey either – Hysteria 51.
