Scientists have mapped the human genome, explored the wonders of the universe and developed the perfect chocolate chip cookie. But all those late nights alone in the lab can have strange effects on the mind. Or maybe that’s just the LSD. This week we discuss mind-altering experiments, reanimated farm animals, petri dish musicians and a serious lack of respect for radiation. Mad scientists combine the dangers of the human mind with a total disregard for life, nature and the gods themselves.
This week on Peripheral we can hear the black helicopters swirling because we are talking about secret societies. You have to choose your membership wisely though, because some of these exclusive clubs are for fun times and others are all about unnecessary surgeries. Take off your skin and shake off that lizard tail, let’s talk about the people who are really in charge.
From metropolis to podunk, everyone’s hometown is different, but they share common threads that connect us all. Every town has ghost stories, creepy townies and abandoned buildings. And every town has a haunted lover’s lane, or a trail where kids went missing, or that lake where your cousin’s best friend’s older brother said that one boy drowned.
This week each member of the Peripheral Team talks about their different hometowns and the true stories of murder that weave them together. We hope you enjoy it!
Washington State is filled with stories of the paranormal. The big stories usually cover Sasquatch and Kurt Cobain’s ghost, but the Peripheral team wanted to share some of the lesser known stories from our beloved Evergreen State. In this locally focused episode, we have tales of unidentified flying objects, a “doctor” serial killer and even spontaneous combustion.
