    Dr. J. Allen Hynek - The UFO Scientist

    Dr. J. Allen Hynek - The UFO Scientist

    Dr. J. Allen Hynek was a scientist of astronomy, a professor and best known for his research on UFOs and "close encounters" which a term that he coined.


    Working for the government, Hynek was first given a position to research and study unidentified flying objects that were seen across the the US. Hynek seemed to first be a skeptic of alien driven UFOs, chalking up to weather balloons and swamp gas, but he truly wanted to develop a scientifically system to classify the mysteries of these unexplained UFO sightings.


    Whether it was secret aircrafts built by other nations or possibly alien space crafts, Hynek was dedicated to find answers. Over the time of doing his research, Hynek changed his opinion and believed it was possible that aliens were visiting Earth.

    Marquis de Sade - The Father of Sadism

    Marquis de Sade - The Father of Sadism

    SADISM!


    Marquis de Sade had more than a penchant for blasphemes, violent sex. So much so, that the word "sadism' was coined in reference to his sexual exploits. 


    Living a rich and high class life in the 1700's, Marquis de Sade quickly found his favorite hobby of visiting local whore houses in Paris or even just hiring young girls to be his chamber maid's so that he could then tie them up, whip them, poop on the bible and then set them free after forcing them to have intercourse with him. That is until the law slowly caught up with him, very slowly.


    Join People Time podcast as we dive into the extreme life of the most well known sexual deviant in history.
