Hysteria 51 is a weekly podcast that takes an every-man approach to the World of the Weird - UFOs, Aliens, Mysteries, Conspiracies, the Paranormal, the Unusual, and the Unexplained. Hosts Brent Hand, David Flora, and Conspiracy Bot (a cranky robot bent on world domination who also happens to be the show’s head researcher) examine a different topic each week and generally come to one conclusion…the truth is out there, but you won’t find it here.
 
"People aren't logical, they're psychological with the emphasis on the psycho," writes Dr Howard Rankin. An expert in cognitive neuroscience, Howard recently published his book I Think Therefore I Am Wrong which looks at the many ways we can sabotage our thinking through cognitive biases, binary thinking, false assumptions and numerous other strategies. The How Not To think podcast examines how this false reasoning manifests itself in many areas of society through myths, and 'conventional wi ...

Due to compensation (more eating drive and/or lower energy expenditure outside of cold exposed periods), cold exposure has been shown in several studies not to result in weight loss. It might even result in weight gain in some situations. This is in direct contradiction to some of the claims made by some of the biggest health influencers like Rhond…
 
In this episode I cover a recent news report of a death during "cold water therapy" in the United Kingdom. Cold exposure is currently dramatically overhyped online, and misinformation on the topic is rampant among the top health influencers. This misinformation misrepresented the balance of harms and risks from cold exposure therapy, undermined thi…

In this episode, I systematically dismantle Huberman's sauna health claims that he makes on the Lex Fridman podcast. In particular, I show that he overstates the strength of the epidemiological evidence and show that nobody has really been able to address the criticisms made of it in the scientific literature. I question whether heat shock proteins…
 
In this episode, I cover the latest research on statins and their link to dementia risk, see: https://jnm.snmjournals.org/content/62/supplement_1/102 In a nutshell, there is some reason to be cautious about the lipophilic statins: atorvastatin, simvastatin, lovastatin, fluvastatin, cerivastatin and pitavastatin. The hydrophilic statins rosuvastatin…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider scanners. Ancient devices used to convert paper documents and photos into files on computers, often using something called TWAIN. For many consumers, they have been replaced by "smart phones." In the news, NVIDIA releases open source GPU drivers, hell has frozen over, Russia appears to have lost custody of a relat…
 
Don’t you just hate it when you dump a body and forget all about it. Then decades of climate change come a calling and said body comes back to haunt you? No... just our robot? Well, sadly, he’s not alone as Lake mead in Nevada is at its lowest levels in history. That is making long forgotten things dumped in there to come back with a vengeance. Plu…
 
The Grand Unified Theory of Bullshit suggests that no matter where it’s from, all bullshit smells the same. From Alternative Medicine to the insurrection in Washington, the underlying cognitive biases that make us all susceptible to grifters and bad actors are similar. No matter how silly or harmless bad ideas may seem at first, because they all re…
 
High homocysteine levels are associated with cardiovascular disease and dementia. A series of studies have shown that the relationship with cardiovascular disease is not causal [1,2]. However, yet another series of randomized controlled trials have shown that reducing homocysteine levels reduces brain atrophy and cognitive decline [3,4,5], as well …

August 21, 1955 started off like so many others in the small community of Kelly, Kentucky, just another hot summer night. Lucky Sutton along with his family and friends were enjoying a quiet peaceful evening. But they were about to find out what was lurking in the darkness. They had visitors, ones not from this earth. After hours of siege from thes…
 
As part of the Interventions Testing Program run by the National Institutes of Health, five agents—resveratrol, green tea extract, medium chain triglycerides, curcumin, and oxaloacetic acid—were tested at three independent testing sites in over 1000 mice per agent tested. The testing found no benefit to any of the agents. I interpret these findings…

The skeptical movement rightly suggests that people should place more faith in peer-reviewed scientific articles than in YouTube videos or written claims made by random people on the Internet. However, science is not always particularly reliable either. In this talk, I will give some examples of how peer-reviewed scientific work that may attract a …
 
In this video I expand upon the first video where I discussed the epidemiological findings linking sauna to improved health outcomes. I cover the criticism I made in the first video in detail. This does not mean that these epidemiological studies are “wrong”. Rather, they are flawed and constitute weak evidence. I also cover the much-bandied-about …
 
Random Acts of Wrongness is a catalog of a certain kind of social media misinformation: egregiously wrong statements by prominent online experts. Here I cover Nina Teicholz's claim that Americans ate low-carb diets (just 28% of total calories as carbohydrates!) before the dietary guidelines ruined everything and caused people to start eating carboh…
 
Cold exposure kills muscle and strength gains and may worsen inflammation. It “improves” recovery by improving the mental and emotional state—mainly by activating the sympathetic nervous system. While it does help mental recovery, it does not help—indeed, it impairs—physical recovery. The improvement in mental state caused by ice baths tricks the b…
 
Modern, domesticated meat is nothing like what our hunter-gatherer ancestors consumed. It contains several times more times more fat, much more saturated fat, and much less polyunsaturated fat. In this podcast, I argue that people who are interested in eating an evolutionarily consistent diet should not consume much fatty modern meat, or should con…
