E55: Project MKUltra

March 11, 2019

During the early years of the Cold War, the American intelligence community became extremely interested in the raw power held in being able to change and control the brains of Soviet Bloc spies and government officials. This morbid interest would turn into the CIA's Project MKUltra, one of the most famous projects ever conducted by the American government. MKUltra would see American and Canadian citizens be unknowingly dosed with LSD and other psychedelics in the name of developing powerful methods of mind control.

In this episode, Matt and Kayla finally tackle Project MKUltra, talking about the history behind the program, the involvement of the American and Canadian governments, the death of Frank Olson, and more.
