    Episode 14: The Ahool: Java's Monstrous Flying Primate

    Episode 14: The Ahool: Java's Monstrous Flying Primate

    In this episode, we sat down with Hassan Ali from The Nerd Alternative to discuss the Ahool. The Ahool is a winged cryptid thought to exist in Indonesia. It was first reported by Dr. Ernest Bartels in 1925 and it has been claimed that it lives in the deepest parts of the jungles of Java. Legend says the Ahool resembles a fanged flying primate, with dark leathery wings, and razor-sharp fangs and talons.

    Is the massive ape-like flying creature the stuff of legends, or is it rooted in reality? Is the Ahool a distant cousin of the now-extinct gigantic blood-sucking Vampire bat, a relative of the extinct pterodactyl, or even more intimidating, is it the inspiration for ancient Mesoamerican mythology?

    Episode 13: Children of God Pt. III: Our God is a Sexy God

    Episode 13: Children of God Pt. III: Our God is a Sexy God

    In today’s episode, we continue our discussion on the religious sex cult, The Children of God. We’ll look at the case study "Lustful Prophet: A Psychosexual Historical Study of the Children of God's Leader, David Berg." We also discuss several families within the cult that had their lives changed forever. Merry Berg, Amy Bril, Vivian Shillander, and the Padilla family are a few ex-members that we focus on in this episode. With rampant sexual and child sexual assault, a distrust of medical science, and religious prostitution, few ex-members escaped unscathed.

    Listen for the history, stay for David Berg's poetry. 

    For full context: the recording heard at the beginning of the episode is an audio excerpt from a 1981 video created and sent to David Berg and Karen Zerby. In this video, a man describes how his younger children have both “shared” sexually with their stepmother. Names have been censored to protect their identities.

    Episode 12: Children of God Pt. II: The Love Prophet

    Episode 12: Children of God Pt. II: The Love Prophet

    In the second episode of our series on The Children of God cult, we continue our discussion on the establishment of the cult. We look at David Berg's life in seclusion, and we take a deep dive into his written 'scripture,' the "Mo Letters." 

    These Mo Letters would lead the cult down a dangerous path of sexual abuse, child neglect, and child sexual assault.  We'll also discuss "Flirty Fishing," a controversial practice of evangelical proselytizing through sex. Finally, we look at how David used Biblical scripture to justify incest, sexual assault, and "child brides."

    Episode 10: Project MKUltra & Subproject 68: The CIA LSD Mind Control Experiments

    Episode 10: Project MKUltra & Subproject 68: The CIA LSD Mind Control Experiments

    In our latest episode, we discuss how Nazi scientists, introduced to the US through Operation Paperclip, and their research prompted the CIA mind control experiments seen in Project MKUltra and its various sub-projects. The MkUltra program saw covert experiments funded through shell companies at universities and research centers across North America. Other studies were conducted in American prisons and in secret detention camps in Japan, Germany, and the Philippines. These experiments included electroshock therapy, sensory deprivation, physical, verbal and sexual abuse, as well as high doses of psychedelic drugs. 

    In today’s episode, we’ll discuss how US and Canadian Governments have attempted to hide highly illegal, dangerous and downright sadistic secret CIA experiments. We’ll also discuss Operation Midnight Climax, which saw prostitutes seduce John’s into participating in experiments in Brooklyn, NY. Finally, we touch on SubProject68, which was a covert CIA experiment headed by Dr Donald Ewen Cameron. The facilities for SubProject68 were located at Montreal’s Allen Memorial Institute. was funded by the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology.

    Episode 9: Richard Ramirez: The Night Stalker Pt. II

    Episode 9: Richard Ramirez: The Night Stalker Pt. II

    In the sweltering summer heat of 1985, the terrified citizens of Los Angeles made sure their windows and doors were locked, as a prowler was on the loose. Initially dubbed by media as "The Valley Intruder," as his crime spree spread to San Francisco he would eventually be known as "The Night Stalker." Any surviving witnesses had one common memory; their curly-haired attacker, who reeked of wet leather, also had wide-spaced, rotting teeth and horrible halitosis.

    In part one of our coverage of Richard Ramirez, we discussed his abusive childhood, his sadistic and violent father figures and we began discussing his crime spree. We conclude our series with his crime spree continuing into the San Fransisco Bay area, as well as coverage of his trial and prison marriage(s).
