24: STRANGER THINGS, MK ULTRA & LYNETTE DAWSON: Camp Hero, Montauk Project, mind control, Chris Dawson trial & more!


Hello Eavesdroppers! This episode we start off with a bit of a true-crime recap of a controversial Australian missing-persons case that’s currently in the courts, followed by conspiracy theories and mind-control stories so buckle up and get ready to Eavesdrop!

This episode we start off with an update on the Chris Dawson case, which blew up when Australian podcast Teacher’s Pet investigated a paedophile ring and the disappearance-slash-suspected murder of Lynette Dawson. Michelle gives you a quick overview of the case and an update on some new evidence that’s come to light before getting into the origin story of hit TV series Stranger Things

Yes, that’s right, the creepy supernatural thriller is supposedly based on true-life incidents. Can you believe it? We couldn’t! So… Who is Christopher Garetano? What is Camp Hero? Is there a disused secret underground mind-control lab in Montauk? And what is the Montauk Project? Were hundreds of thousands of kids abducted and experimented on in the 1970s and 1980s? Is it all a conspiracy theory? Or are the events true? You might not get any answers but listen in now to make up your own mind!

So, back in the 1950s, when the US government believed that Russia had developed ways to control people’s minds, the CIA decided to embark on their own mind-control methods and created a top-secret Cold War initiative named MK Ultra. Basically, they illegally experimented on people to see if the mind could be wiped, reprogrammed, controlled and more… What are the MKUltra mind control experiments? Did the CIA recruit Nazi torturers? Was LSD used as a ‘truth serum’? Why were people illegally experimented on? Were people murdered? What is the sleep room? Why is crime boss Whitey Bulger mixed up in all this? Why was all the evidence wiped about the MK Ultra experiments? And how is this connected to Guantanamo torture? Listen in to find out.

We hope you enjoy this week’s episode – and wherever you are, whatever you do, just keep Eavesdroppin’!
