In this episode I tell you the strange history of the drug LSD, from it’s origins involving a deadly fungus that may have caused a bizarre dancing plague in 1518, all the way up until the CIA began experimenting with it in their top secret program known as Project MK-Ultra. Did the CIA really murder one of its own scientists? And how does the man’s death tie into a bizarre outbreak of mass hallucinations in a tiny French village.

Hypnotism is a controversial subject that has been around in one form or another since the time of the ancient Egyptians. Under hypnosis, a person becomes susceptible to suggestion. But just how far can you compel a person under hypnosis to go? For centuries, hypnosis has been tied to a number of murders and suspicious deaths. In this episode, we’ll discuss some of these incidents, including one that may involve one of the most famous assassinations in American history.

In 1957, an odd, soft-spoken man named Ed Gein shocked the nation. What they discovered on his remote farm in rural Wisconsin was the stuff of nightmares, and would go on to inspire many modern horror movies, including Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Silence of the Lambs. But the true story of Ed Gein, is so much worse.

There’s an old saying that there exists a fine line between genius and madness. In 1937, a gifted but mentally disturbed sculptor committed a series of horrific murders that shocked New York City, and brought on one of the biggest manhunts in the city’s history.

In 1991, the body of a journalist named Danny Casolaro was found in a West Virginia hotel room with slashed wrists and a suicide note nearby. It turns out, before his death, Danny Casolaro was investigating what he believed was a vast conspiracy involving a shadowy criminal organization he called The Octopus.

Hollywood long ago realized that a lonely and isolated cabin in the woods is an ideal place to set a horror movie. But in real life, cabins in the woods have been the locations of some very real murders. Here are two such stories, including the tale of a group of fur trappers who met their bitter end one winter, and the tale of a single mother of five, who left a terrible situation, only to end up in a nightmare beyond imagination.

New episode! In 1873, three women became trapped on a tiny island off the coast of Maine with a vicious axe murderer in a true story that seems like something straight out of a horror movie.
