“I was not expecting this podcast to be so addictive! I ended up binge listening while I cleaned my house all on one day. I’m in my mid 30s so I actually thought that MKULTRA was an urban legend. The stories I had heard before listening to this podcast sounded too outlandish to be real. Unfortunately, I feel like this story is not well taught or discussed in my country (US). Podcasts like this are fantastic for keeping the truth alive.
As for the content, I thought that it was very well presented. The creator approached it by focusing on the human consequences of these sociopaths that allowed for these things to happen. While this may be boring for many of the history buffs, I think that it is an excellent way to engage the masses in topics they may not typically be interested in.
It is so critical that we remember our history. Especially all the dark parts because, if something this inhumane occurred with the intention of strengthening our venerated military, then there are DEFINITELY sketchy programs like this going on to this day. Awareness about our history allows us to think critically about the news we encounter (assuming you are consuming LEGITIMATE journalism- not FOX, OAN, and all that propaganda parading as “journalism”). History has been repeating itself in so many ways through 2020. It makes me wonder what the CIA is up to these days. Unfortunately, we probably will never know.”
