This one's a doozy, folks. We begin our look at the alleged mind controlled sex slaves of "Project Monarch" by digging in to Cathy O'Brien's book Trance Formation in America, co-authored with her husband Mark Phillips. Cathy alleges that, with the hypnotic help of her husband Mark, she recovered memories of her time in an MK ULTRA subproject in whi…
 
Right now there is an object of unknown extraterrestrial origin in polar orbit around Earth transmitting signals to somewhere, something else. It's called the Black Knight satellite and it's been watching us for 13,000 years. Or so you'd be led to believe if you hung out in the same dumb places on the internet that we do. The Black Knight is some o…
 
Have you ever thought that your neighbors might be acting a little stranger than normal? That your house suddenly appeared bigger on the inside than the outside? That invisible dwarves were following you on your madcap escape from various intelligence agencies out to ruin your life, specifically? Well you might, unfortunately, be entirely correct. …
 
It's time to catch up with our favorite villainous magicians. Between 1934 and 1939 Guy and Edna Ballard brainwashed and robbed blind upwards to a million Americans through the "'I AM' Religious Activity" using hypnosis, parlor tricks, force of will, and a bunch of members of William Dudley Pelley's Silver Legion - the most successful American Nazi…
 
This week we're bringing you a classic tale of aliens guiding a man named Ted Rice on his life's journey from rising in the ranks as a young professional at an exclusive Idaho resort to living in a trailer in Shreveport, Louisiana with a cat named grandma and yelling at lizard people. Ted Rice was a UFO experiencer since childhood, but coming from …
 
Are evil Nazi wizards running the world? No. Are a bunch of scumbag fascist occultists in positions of power trying to run the world? You betcha. This week we look at Aleksandr Dugin, sometimes referred to as "Putin's Rasputin", as well as a few other greasy occultists in positions of power such as Steve Bannon (seriously, dude describes himself as…
 
Concluding our series on the Oneida Community we finally find John Humphrey Noyes and the rest of all those sexy bible "communists" moving to Oneida, New York and setting up their utopian estate. Or is it a corporation? Or is it a sex cult? Whatever it is (definitely a sex cult), things go off the rails. With early eugenics experiments, the ghoulis…
 
It's an 1840's Quaker soap opera as we continue the story of the Oneida Community, the free love endorsin', romantic love despisin', silverware makin' (eventually, we promise, there will be forks) Perfectionist sex cult. This week we're taking a look at the small sexually repressed dramas of the members of John Noyes' Putney Community, the trial ru…
 
Have you ever wondered where your forks come from? Ever suspect they might come from a polyamorous, religious utopian commune in the mid 1800's? Or that your silverware might be the remaining legacy of hundred of self-described "Bible Communists" and their weird attempt at a nineteenth century Methodist sexual revolution through something called "c…
 
Just what exactly are we doing here? What is this? Who are we? Where have we been? And where are we going? This week we're taking a pause, taking a deep breath between two big miniseries to reflect on the weird world we've inadvertently found ourselves in, ponder the meaning of life and The Spooky, fill you all in on the investigations that have be…
 
Concluding our look at the life of rocket scientist, occultist, and fascinating human being Jack Parsons, this week we see Jack actually summon a storm to deal with L. Ron Hubbard from a cheap Miami hotel room, writing one of the best essays on spiritual and political liberty that has ever been written, (briefly) declaring himself the anti-christ, …
 
In part three of our Jack Parsons series we find Jack kicked out of both Aerojet and JPL and turning to what every red-blooded American man turns to in times of crisis: ritual magick. Jack's life is further complicated by the arrival of a smooth talking sci-fi writer named L. Ron Hubbard who quickly becomes jacks closest associate and most bitter r…
 
Continuing the saga of John Whiteside Parsons (AKA Jack), this week we see Jack and the rest of the suicide squad get their bonafides as the first official, government funded rocket research group in the USA and found both the Aerojet Corporation and Jet Propulsion Laboratories at Caltech. Meanwhile back at the ranch, Jack and Helen Parsons are off…
 
Pioneering rocket engineer, founder of Jet Propulsion Laboratories, occultist, and disciple of Aleister Crowley, Jack Parsons is one of the most fascinating, compelling, and misunderstood counter-culture figures of the 20th century. Over the next four weeks, we're going to be taking a deep dive into the incredible, strange, often hilarious, and tra…
 
In 2020, a person armed with a flashlight, 4 cans of beans, two bottles of water, a bandolier of vials containing turpentine, blood, and holy water, and no extra batteries allegedly entered the Catacombs of Paris to seal a "dimensional breach" they were led to believe was the source of all the world's misery as well as the voices in their head. The…
 
Way back on episode 10, when we were but babes in the woods, we covered a dude named Harry Horse and the ultra-weird pan-conspiracy adventure game he designed called Drowned God. That story has not gone away, and in fact has only gotten stranger. On this episode, the first of our likely recurring follow-ups, we're joined by friend of the pod, Drown…
 
This week we look at the inspiring story of a man who went from stripping naked in an airport and battling demons in a psych ward to becoming not just a living Eck Master, but the last living Eck Master: Sri Harold Klemp, the current leader of Eckankar. According to former members, Klemp spends his days astral projecting himself to the other side o…
 
This week we're bringing you spaghetti fights, country music, diarrhea curses, and corn-fed masters as we jump back into the world of American New Age religions and begin our look at Eckankar, which boasted tens of thousands of adherents in its heyday and continues to exist. While Eckankar shares quite a few similarities with some other groups we'v…
 
In 1945, Amazing Stories editor Ray Palmer shocked the young world of science fiction by publishing the totally, completely, 100%, absolutely-no-foolin' true story I Remember Lemuria! by the unknown author Richard Sharpe Shaver. The story was allegedly a past life recollection of one Mu-tan Mion, a citizen of the ancient Lemurian civilization some …
 
This week we're taking a look at a currently unfolding modern day alien abduction case. AJ is a young woman experiencing "classic" symptoms of alien abduction and currently posting about it on Gab. So we made some burner accounts and got the scoop. While it's clear that AJ has certainly experienced something horrible, what's even more frightening i…
 
In November of 1967, on a dark and rainy night night on Route 77 in West Virginia, traveling salesman Woodrow Derenberger had an encounter with a UFO and the odd, overly friendly pilot of said UFO. A man named Indrid Cold. Reported as a side story in John Keel's now legendary book The Mothman Prophecies, which chronicled all the high strangeness ha…
 
Have you ever had a romance that seemed almost fated, where supernatural events and strange occurrences led up to your meeting? As if some force beyond human comprehension was directing events, from those first butterflies in your stomach to the inevitable heartbreak? Maybe it's not your fault, and maybe you aren't a failure as a person and a lover…
 
This week we're taking a look at the mysterious phenomenon known as "Havana syndrome." In 2016 a group of American diplomats in Havana, Cuba reported the sudden onset of debilitating physical symptoms accompanied by a loud, metallic buzzing sound. Later Canadian diplomats would experience the same thing. Now, there have been hundreds of reports of …
 
This week we're looking at one of the flat-out weirdest things we've ever come across. A 2016 episode of MTV's "Catfish". A Kentucky woman named Kayla is contacted by a woman in Florida who says she's been having regular conversations with Kayla's father. The problem is, Kayla's father has been dead for years and the events surrounding his death ar…
 
To bid farewell to the ascended masters, we're talking about the dumbest, largest, and most terrifyingly prevalent conspiracy theory we've ever heard of: NESARA/GESARA and Saint Germain's World Trust. Combining masters, space saviors, aliens, 9/11, financial scams, and complete ignorance of what numbers are, the NESARA conspiracy theory alleges tha…
 
This week we're taking a look at one of America's great traditions: the write-in presidential candidate. In this case, it's five-time presidential write-in candidate for The Light Party Da Vid Raphael, the Limberbutt McCubbins of the Ascended Master Teachings. Based out of San Francisco, Da Vid Raphael MD (AKA Dolph Bruce Ornstein) runs on a platfo…
 
In 1977, a mysterious voice took over the TV news broadcast across southern England. This voice claimed to be Vrilon of the Ashtar Command, a group of higher dimensional beings which include Lord Sananda (space Jesus) and Ashtar Sheran, and serve as the "Airborne Division of the Great White Brotherhood." Yep. But this wasn't the first time the worl…
 
It's Halloween! We're taking a break from our regularly scheduled programming to have some fun and do some weird stuff. On this episode we take a look at a collection of internet rituals for the sole purpose of making weird stuff happen, Willow legitimately hypnotizes Sequoyah, and we crack open an ancient grimoire of black magic and try to discern…
 
While The "I AM" Activity and Church Universal and Triumphant are the leviathans of the Ascended Master Teachings, there are a whole host of others who have done their part in spreading this memetic virus: The Bridge to Spiritual Freedom, Peter Mt Shasta, Lady Master Pearl, The Hearts Center Community and a whole lot more. But the old funeral home …
 
In the conclusion to our series on Church Universal and Triumphant, Elizabeth Clare Prophet suddenly in control of the organization after the sudden death of Mark Prophet (now known as ascended master Lanello). Changing their name from Summit Lighthouse to Church Universal and Triumphant (it's a tax evasion thing), CUT only grows bigger, more influ…
 
This week we're starting the tale of Church Universal and Triumphant AKA Summit Lighthouse and Mark Lyle Prophet and Elizabeth Clare Prophet, the next two goobers to take up the mantle of Accredited Messengers of the Ascended Masters. Reaching a moderate level of fame in 1990 for stockpiling guns and hiding in poorly constructed bomb shelters in Mo…
 
It's the bizarre and disturbing conclusion to our series on the "I AM" Activity and the Accredited Messengers Guy and Edna Ballard. It's crescendo of money, madness, masters, and mind control as Guy and Edna wrap their almost one million followers in blankets of total fear and paranoia and set out on their goal of establishing Saint Germain's New G…
 
We begin our look at Guy and Edna Ballard and the I AM Activity who coined the term "Ascended Master" and, although only active for the last half of the 1930's, gained upwards to a million followers, made tens of millions of dollars, and drove their followers insane with a technicolor barrage of paranoia and easy, meaningless answers to life's hard…
 
Have you ever heard of the ascended masters? How about angel numbers, ascension, or the violet flame? Has some creep ever told you they're your "twin flame"? Has Saint Germain ever offered you a cup of his golden cream? This week we're introducing a multi-series saga exploring the history of the "Ascended Master Teachings" AKA the I AM movement, an…
 
We take a look at the strange, strange trajectory on which a young man named Connor Murphy is currently hurling himself. After becoming a genuine sensation on YouTube for his bodybuilding videos and videos where he takes his shirt off at girls, Connor lost his gains and found a taste for psychedelics and performance art. Shifting into the oh-so-hot…
 
We look into the life, afterlife, and after-afterlife of one of the great weirdos of history: the Count of St. Germain. Known only by this title, the mysterious count was a staple of the royal courts of Europe during the 1700s. Seemingly never aging, with no real name, he was known in the court of Louis XV as an alchemist, mystic, philosopher, viol…
 
It's time for reptilians, the secret history of the world, and what really happened to the dinosaurs! This week we're looking at the "Lacerta Files", a recently re-surfaced series of interviews from 1999 between one intrepid Swede and a...sexy reptilian who calls herself Lacerta whose species lives inside the Earth. Recently gaining a following on …
 
The conclusion to the John McAfee saga. In this episode we cover John's escape from Belize and the remaining eight years of his life including meeting his wife Janice, John's two presidential campaigns, his escape from the tax man to Cuba and international waters, and the last eight months of his life imprisoned in a Spanish jail. We hear a lot mor…
 
This week, we begin our look at the life of John McAfee. Brilliant computer programmer, international fugitive, two-time-presidential candidate, and powerful wizard, John McAfee's life was truly the stuff of legends. In the first part of our series ,we cover the bulk of John's life from his early years through the creation of McAfee Antivirus, and …
 
Upton Sinclair was one of the first "muckraking" journalists of the 20th century. But we're not really talking about that part. Instead we're mostly focusing on Mental Radio, a book detailing Upton and his wife, Mary's investigations into psychic phenomena and a Polish rabbit-hypnotizing wizard named Jan. We also take a look at the artist commune S…
 
This week we learn about Neville Goddard, the Mad Mystic of 48th street, who lectured mid-20th century on the power of "mental causation" and the God of the Christian Bible being nothing more than an extended metaphor for your own wonderful, human imagination. Also you're the only thing that exists and you made all of this up by imagining it. Have …
 
In the thrilling conclusion of Blood Over Intent, Willow gets brainwashed and Sequoyah meets his arch-nemesis. Who is the Grey Magician? What's he doing buying a compound? Do unkempt beards give you magic powers? Why does Satan himself suddenly feel like the good guy? And what are the excellent benefits of eating poop? All of these questions and mo…
 
We take a peek into one of the weirder corners of the internet and learn about a modern religious movement with thousands of adherents based around using blood magic to bring heaven on Earth and escape the flat disc we all live on (yep it's one of those) by journeying to the North Pole. Founded unceremoniously with a 2013 Youtube video posted by Fl…
 
Oh you're into UFOs, huh? What if we told you that it's all smoke and mirrors, a grand illusion dreamt up by those dirty hippies that run the United Nations to usher in the technological antichrist and assume total control of your inner and outer worlds? Microchipped birds, fake religious revelations, and mind control via common household appliance…
 
We talk about our experience playing as much as we possibly could have of Harry Horse's (in)famous point-and-click adventure game from 1996. We went to weird Stonehenge, spun a couple weird clocks, and met the most infuriating, utterly, worthless drunk sack of bones who ever called himself a Templar Knight. All in all, well, it sure is something. T…
 
The point-and-click adventure game Drowned God was released in 1996. Fusing seemingly every conspiracy theory ever invented and the arcane secrets of numerology, tarot, and kabbalah, Drowned God stood out from its contemporaries (other point-and-clicks like Myst and The 7th Guest) simply because of how strange it was. In part one, we look at the su…
 
The Ars Goetia of the Lesser Key of Solomon is one of the most famous, or infamous, books of so-called "black magic" in history, providing instructions to those would-be conjurors who would attempt to summon demons to do their bidding. But what exactly are the entities known as the goetic demons? Are demons real? Where does the Lesser Key of Solomo…
 
After learning about a dude who uses "A.I. assisted noise reduction software" to talk to spirits through white and pink noise, we decided to give it a try ourselves. So we took a field trip to Rhode Island's officially haunted patch of woods (as recorded in the 1885 census) the "Ramtail Factory" and interrogated a river. There's definitely some inc…
 
We take a look at a collection of strange, short, and horrible stories: a cult leader is found mummified in colloidal silver and tequila, a scientologist job posting for a nanny is as bizarre as you hope it is, and people are being scammed by fake Keanu Reeves. We also take a longer look at the religious fundamentalism and culture of repression tha…
 
A mysterious declassified document on the CIA website details the government's investigation of The Monroe Institute's "Gateway Experience" program which purports to teach methods of astral projection, remote viewing, and "patterning" one's reality. Along the way Lieutenant Colonel Wayne C. McDonnell accidently explains how the whole universe works…
