If someone you love is diagnosed with cancer you want them to get the best treatment from the best doctors. In 2013, patients in Michigan thought Farid Fata was that doctor.

S8 E1: RAVENSCRAG
This is Uncover: Brainwashed. The Allan Memorial Institute in Montreal was an innovative new hospital where patients sought cutting-edge psychiatric care. But instead of being helped, many were subjected to shockingly brutal experiments: massive doses of LSD or other drugs, electroshocks, and sensory deprivation. How — and why — could this be allowed to happen?
S8 E2: PSYCHIC DRIVING
Dr. Ewen Cameron, an internally renowned psychiatrist, was once the director of the World, American and Canadian Psychiatric Associations. So how did he come to develop his controversial treatments? And what was the real purpose behind his experiments? This is Uncover: Brainwashed.
S8 E3: EXPOSING MKULTRA
Communist brainwashing, mind control experiments, a government cover up... MKULTRA sounds like the stuff of conspiracy theories or science fiction. But it was real. John Marks, author of The Search for the Manchurian Candidate, and Stephen Kinzer, author of Poisoner in Chief, reveal the shocking details of the bizarre and expansive secret CIA project. This is Uncover: Brainwashed.
S8 E4: SUING THE CIA
After discovering that they were the unwitting victims of human experiments, nine of Dr. Cameron’s victims band together to take on a Herculean task – to make the CIA pay. How do you sue one of the most powerful intelligence agencies in the world? This is Uncover: Brainwashed.
S8 E5: WE TORTURED SOME FOLKS
MKULTRA was supposed to have ended in the 1960s. The torturous experiments didn’t work. So why did these techniques evolve and continue to be used by American trainers throughout Latin America, and then get revived once again in the era that followed the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks? The CIA’s Black Sites and a courtroom inside the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base may hold some of the answers. This is Uncover: Brainwashed.

Are the police in Canada really that incompetent?
First and foremost the CBC podcasts are fantastic. Now, I’m a supporter of law enforcement and always have been. My father was a federal agent. But I’ve listened to several of these podcasts from CBC and really it makes me wonder. It’s easy to make that call after the fact but there seems to be a trend to close cases and not really investigate completely. So I’m left wondering what’s going on in Canada?
All good some great
I binged all the seasons. Some are so compelling, the village and sharmini were heart breaking and anger inducing -when I think of the systems failings and cop incompetence (incopetence) and how easily these things could have been avoided
Story is good, narrator is annoying
Why does he talk like this? Ruins a good story. Sounds like a local tv channel during a Halloween episode.
